The funny thing people aren't realizing is that Tepper was pissed about the 7 game losing streak and threatened Marty and Rivera...their answer was well if we had a better backup we would have won more games. ....

Marty and Rivera have definitely failed in having a back up who could come in and maybe win a game or two, or maybe more if Cam were out.  I get and agree with drafting a Grier, but I thought there would have been more of an attempt at bringing in a veteran. (not sure who they could have brought it and gotten to fit this need .... of course you have the bring in Kap crowd, but besides him.. not sure);  BUT  Allen and Heinicke were never the answer not should they have been going into this season.  Marty and Rivera have put all their eggs in Cam staying healthy for all sixteen games.  

On a side note, maybe Taysom Hill will be so impressive Peyton decides to only keep two QBs and cuts Bridgewater.  He would be an upgrade over Allen and Heinicke.

Come on big Steve!? Tyrod is a MUCHHHH better option than our unproven backups. I know you don't want to admit it, but you already know. If Cam goes down again, we in TROUBLE.

Tyrod would be the perfect backup. Why would you not want a former starter who had TDs to INTs of 20 to 6 in 2015, 17 to 6 in 2016, and 14 to 4 in 2017 the last 3 seasons as a starter? That's 51 TDs to 16 INts and his completion percentage all above 60 percent in all 3 of those years. Not to mention he's got running ability too.

I got an idea. It might be against the grain since everyone here is a formidable talent evaluator and seasoned keyboard Coaching prospect. 

 

How about we let the preseason play out and see how things go the next two games?

Yeah, no poo. Every time the Saints are on the announcers play a game where they see who can say “Tay-som Hill” the greatest number of times. You’d think he was the greatest player of all-time the way they gush about a slightly-better version of Joe Webb.

He's also making like..20% more than Allen, Grier, and Heinicke combined.  He's making what..6.5m?

We play a couple more preseason games and let everyone have a chance to do their best. Then, we pick two of them as backups and we move on into the regular season.

You know, like everyone else does pretty much. These are spare tires, they are only meant to get you to the next service station or perhaps limp on back home. Let's not treat it like we're one of those folks that just decides to drive around on a donut until the rent's paid at the end of month.

Honestly, it really doesn't matter who our backup QB is. If Cam goes down, we're done. But realistically, it will probably be Grier. If Cam got injured, God forbid, then it would give Grier an opportunity to gain some experience.

If it's any consolation, if Matty Ice or father time (Brees) goes down, Atl and NO are pretty much done.

Heard someone say on the radio yesterday that Grier has a nice arm and beautiful deep ball, but he is trying to catch up with reading coverage and making the reads quicker. In a year or 2 he may be the man, but this year he probably needs to be #3.
