    I'm watching the Saints-Bengals game on NFL Network and they just mentioned that when Matt Baker was cut, both Romo and Bledsoe called up Sean Payton and told him he needed to sign him. The commentators then mentioned that Baker looks like he might beat out the Saint's 3rd string guy and make the roster.

    Just thought it was an interesting little nugget.

    Makes you wonder why Baker didn't get more of a shot with the new regime here.

    Obviously they liked Moore better. He certainly has looked good for us.

    Well yeah I get that...but if Baker was that good as to be getting job recommendations from Romo and Bledsoe it just seems that we would have taken a longer look. Oh doesn't really matter since he is not likely to be anything more than a clip board carrier anyway.

    I do not know who the third string guy for the Saints is, but if it is Tyler Palko, right now (and I say right now, because I believe Palko will be, if he is not already the 2nd string QB.) What I am saying is Baker is not better than Palko.
