METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints interim coach Joe Vitt won't reveal the quarterback rotation against the Arizona Cardinals for the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday in Canton, Ohio, saying only that it will be similar to other preseason openers.

The coaches of the NFL weigh in on a number of hot-button topics in the league, including Andrew Luck vs. RG3, Tim Tebow, challenge flag etiquette, the Packers' QB tree and the 2012 Hall of Fame class.

Look for Drew Brees to play a series or two, followed by Chase Daniel, Luke McCown and Sean Canfield.

Daniel, in his fourth year with the Saints, says he sees no competition from McCown, a nine-year veteran who signed with New Orleans in June and started the 2011 regular-season opener for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Daniel, the Saints No. 1 quarterback in all offseason workouts while Brees remained unsigned, insists he is trying to win the starting job.

Vitt confirms starting cornerbacks Jabari Greer (sports hernia) and Patrick Robinson (shoulder) will miss the Hall of Fame game along with rookie wide receiver Nick Toon (foot).
