Giants add Quarterback Alex Tanney

Quote:

Journeyman backup and trick-shot artist Alex Tanney just announced on Twitter that he was joining the Giants. He was just cut by the Titans, and has also spent time with the Chiefs, Cowboys, Browns, Buccaneers, Bills, and Colts.

He joins 2017 third-rounder Davis Webb and 2018 fourth-rounder Kyle Lauletta. Tanney threw 14 passes for Tennessee in 2015, which is 14 more than Webb and Lauletta combined.

Look, you need a gimmick QB to win a SB. We don't win 2007 without the Hefty Lefty, right?

LOL, you know there will be several posters who believe that this is a sign that the Giants aren't high on Webb or Lauletta failing to realize that the Giants always need a 4th QB as a camp arm.

If that's the case, I'll retract my statement. But on this board, it's difficult to determine the whether a statement is sarcasm or just truly asinine.

Guess you just need to know Arc. He loves posting sarcastic comments, and he's pretty damn good at it too.
Why?  
Matt M. : 5/2/2018 12:55 pm : link
This isn't a case where they need camp fodder. They have two young QBs who need as many reps as they can get. Further, Tanney is not a guy I would consider as my primary backup to Eli. So why?
I also ask ďwhy ď ???  
Spider56 : 5/2/2018 1:06 pm : link
Itís been reported they signed Thomas Sirk ex ECU and ex Duke QB as an UDFA ... that would make 5 ?

Seems like a waste of a roster spot to me.

Actually that is exactly what it is. All teams carry at least 4 QB's during camp because they need at least that many for practice reps.

I believe Sirk was invited to the rookie minicamp not signed yet.

Yes, but we are in a situation where we don't need to conserve reps. Obviously, we won't have Eli throwing a ton of balls all summer. But, the other two should be taking a ton of snaps. Anyone other than them taking snaps makes no sense.

Matt you are worrying about nothing. There are too many reps to go around during training camp. They have a few QB's working on separate fields at the same time. The reason for the 4th QB is because teams don't want to over work the QB's. Tanney will likely see little to no snaps in preseason games assuming that he is still on the roster then.

The camp roster size is 90 players and you need arms to run all the drills for all the players. He wont take any "snaps" from the big 3

doesn't matter who we have at QB after Eli - they will be successful. Teams win super bowls all the time with guys like Tanney -

Yep. The last thing you need with a 37 year old QB is to wear out his arm in training camp. The need for a 4th QB diminishes as the team roster through the cut-down process.

That's following the final preseason game. So they'll have a need for 4 QBs up to that point.
