Jeff Blake got the 2000 Saints to 7 - 3 before he got injured. I don't remember him smiling much after throwing and INT.

Re: Why Book is the man for the job

Sean needs to either activate Book in a time when our QB situation is so dire, or demote him to the practice squad. If you have this little faith in him, then you shouldn't be worried about another team putting in a waiver claim.

This blows. Play somebody else. Anybody else. We suck.

If you canít judge a book by its cover, can we judge Book if all our receivers are always covered?

They're more likely to get open when Ian is moving and scrambling and buying them more time to do so.

I would be on board with Book, I mean what are we clinging to here.

The only thing that maybe is holding SP back is he doesn't want the Kid to get killed behind that wannabe O Line.

Exactly where my brain is - and Book knows to run. Let him run. What are we clinging on to? Next four are Dallas, NY Jets, Tampa, and Miami. We're not beating any of those teams with yesterday's effort.

We should embrace it and put the roster on the field that best reflects an attempt to win with our future. Coach took over and took a crap team to the playoffs 2 years ahead of schedule. I have faith. Lets take some lumps and find our next QB. Now is the time.

Couldn't agree more.

As much as I wanted Trevor to succeed, the offense has been dead with him at the helm.

Give Book a shot, at this point we can't lose anything else.

Re: Why Book is the man for the job

I wouldn't mind seeing him put in. He could have at least get mop up duties when a game gets out of hand, case in point (Buffalo) couldn't hurt one bit. Give him a taste to get his feet wet. I got big questions with this 0 line with little to nothing protection and no run game to boot. Any qb will have a hard time until they both get fixed. Trial by fire, good or bad.
