Re: AJ McCarron ... should we?

Anything would be an upgrade over Chase Daniels (although I have a theory that having him as your No. 2 is motivation for the offensive line not to let anything happen to Drew Brees)...

In fact, I'm still curious why we let Luke McCown out the door and not just heal up; but McCarron would be an interesting get into Payton's development...

Re: AJ McCarron ... should we?

Hes been sitting behind someone for a couple of years. Hes going to go somewhere that gives him an immediate chance to start.

Maybe. Talk is the Browns. But why go to one of the teams that most likely will take a QB in the first round? I'd like to see him with either the Broncos or the Cardinals. That makes those teams instant division contenders if AJ plays like he did in that playoff game against the Steelers in the playoffs two years ago...

But is he the new Matt Flynn of the NFL?

He's going to go to the Browns. They tried to trade for him last season and they have his coach there.

Who in their right mind would want to go to Cleveland and watch their career flounder? That is a broken system and there is no quick fix.

Letting Luke go never made sense to me either. He was a far more talented back up than Chase and I'm certain he wasn't a locker room problem. That always made me say.......hmmmmm.

Re: AJ McCarron ... should we?

I don't have a problem with Chase like many do here. But AJ would be an interesting prospect behind Brees and possibly an eventual replacement (depending on how he develops and picks up the offense). Wouldn't mind seeing that happen.

But I'm sure he's going to go somewhere that'll give him a shot to start. That's not happening here for a couple more years. Maybe more.
