"Being a veteran doesn’t mean you can’t get better," Page said. "It just means that you’ve seen some things. I feel I’ve seen a lot of things and I feel I’m a really good student of the game. I feel I understand offensive schemes and I understand why Clancy wants us to do certain things out there. It’s my job to get other guys on board with that. Sometimes the younger guys don’t understand. I need to show them.
"That’s what a veteran does."

5. Turk McBride: Nobody was effected as much by the switch to the 3-4 defense as McBride, former second round pick who was drafted as a DT/DE has been moved to OLB. All reports out of training camp say McBride has been slow to pick up his new position.

That’s right, you guessed it, Tyler Thigpen is number 2 and Matt Cassell was number 3. That Top 5 list looks like this… Drew Brees, Thigpen, Cassel, Peyton Manning, and Aaron Rodgers.
