all the way to New Orleans. (Do you see? Do you see what I did there?)

This news is according to the Post's Redskins Insider, which happens to be considered gospel around these parts.
The departure isn't a big surprise and I really and honestly wish him the best. He did well in his time here and handled his ultimate demotion from starter to 3rd string with class and dignity. I vote that he is the Official Hogs Haven favorite New Orleans Saint, but it's not like I have any pull around here. Hopefully, I'll see him when I'm down that way in the next week and I'll send him the collective best.
And even if I don't see him, I'll drink one (or two) for him.

In related QB news, Trent Dilfer is no longer a 49er according to Yahoo! Sports. I know there were conversations about Zorn wanting Dilfer, but I think that was before the team resigned Collins. I'm hoping they stick with Hollenbach or another young, project QB as the 3rd stringer.
