KK or AM? KK is probably a better QB right now, but AM has to potential to be great, and if he develops quickly, he could become the better QB by mid-year.
AM would never make it to the practice squad. he'd be picked up immediately upon release.

Kliff will be placed on the PS, and if AB gets hurt, we'll call Kliff up. Chances are Kliff won't be claimed. A-mac most certainly would.

There's no way they'll risk losing McPherson to another team. No way on earth. He was one of the most popular 2005 picks, and with the Lyman fiasco combined with the AB haters, they'd be blasted beyond belief by the press and the fans.

I concur completly with that last post. KK may be a nice backup at some point in his career, but you can never take a chance on releasing a player with the athletic tools AM has. He is our 3rd stringer and the coaches can say all they want to the contrary now, but they know how this will turn out already.

Unless Bouman is unexpectedly cut, KK is headed for PS or we keep 4 QBs on our 53 man roster. There's absolutely no way the FO can even think of opening AM up to being taken by another team. Even if he cleared waivers and got on the PS, he'd still be available for signing by another team at any point. I don't know if he's going to develop into a starting QB or not, but you can't risk it at this point.

The safer bet is releasing KK and getting him to the practice squad but I don't like that at all. I'd rather cut Bouman. Brooks was in the same boat when he got the starting job... unproven, and we took a chance and it proved excellent. 2005 same situation you give number 2 to either KK or AM and 3rd the other. Bouman is losing it, credit his age or whatever but no hard feelings cut him lose.

Yeah, who SHOULD fill in is O'Sullivan... But thats a horse of a different color.

The only thing I see as a lock is AB and AMAC. They would be number 1 and 3 on the depth chart. The telling signs will be how the Saints use Bouman and Kingsbury in preseason. I think the Saints will keep Bouman, and give Kingsbury very little opportunity in preseason. The Saints may do this to limit the game film on Kingsbury, in hopes of landing him back on the practice squad. If Kingsbury gets plenty of snaps, then the Saints are maybe ready to release Bouman, especially if another place kicker holder is in the fold.

This is at best a long shot, but it's possible that J.T. O'Sullivan may get back into the mix. It is looking doubtful that he will make the Packers squad, unless they have an injury opening.
