Luke McCown Should Be Traded To…

September 3rd, 2009

Just judging by the comments Joe has noticed on this wonderful site, fans want the Bucs to trade backup quarterback Luke McCown.

As Joe has pointed out many times, it takes two to tango. Some suggest Pittsburgh (ha!), others Denver. But John Czarnecki of has a suitor that was the subject of some speculation last week.

The Packers.

Czarnecki has a list of 10 trades that need to happen before the 2009 season kicks off next week and he has a trade of McCown to the Packers quite high.

3. QB Luke McCown to the Packers: The Packers need a solid backup quarterback with Matt Flynn’s shoulder hurting and Brian Brohm a major disappointment as a second-round pick. McCown might have been a better choice as the Bucs’ starter, but rookie coach Raheem Morris preferred to go with Byron Leftwich until rookie Josh Freeman is ready. GM Mark Dominik doesn’t want to pay McCown $2.5 million to sit the bench.

Joe is of the belief the Packers should be pretty good this year. But Green Bay’s backups for Aaron Rodgers are so miserable that if he goes down, so too do the Pack.

    WoW! that leaves 2 nobodies (or unproven/inexperienced if you prefer) backing up a QB that hasn’t been able to finish out a season his whole NFL career. That sounds like a ‘good’ strategy to me! (UGH!)

    You know…the Broncos don’t like a certain WR anymore and their QB is injured. They also asked for a linebacker. I don’t know about you guys, but Leftwich could use two Pro Bowlers to throw to down the field.
