Question about qbs

superspynyg : 8/11/2019 8:40 am
Say DJ continues to look good in the preseason and conti yes to open eyes.
AND
Tanney continues to look just as good as he did in thurs game or better. Proving that he is the #2 for now.

While itís no bra8 er to keep all 3 on the 58

Come game 1 does DJ dress? Do we have 3 qbs dressed and on the sideline again the Cowpukes? We can only dress 46

Shurmur has constantly stated he likes a vet who can come in carry the offense right away. Especially at the start when we are still in it.

Jeez, you didn't proof

read or you had a very good night last night which continued through this morning.

Good question. I think 2 dress - Eli and Jones.
First of all - it doesn't really matter

We have Eli, not RG3. Neither one is getting into the game.

But I can't see them dressing 3.

I think it depends on who they have running the scout team combined with which one has a better grasp of the install for that week.

Also for reference, mahomes dressed as the #2 his rookie year over their vet back up.
When did

Lauletta to practice squad and call up Tanney on his couch if something happens. It's really really stupid to not afford the luxury of the legendary tough ironman Eli affords us effectively giving us an extra roster spot.
Ideally, all the QBs play really well and the Giants have flexibility  
Ivan15 : 8/11/2019 10:43 am : link
to trade either Tanney or Lauletta for a late conditional pick (6 or 7). In that case, they keep 3 QBs.

If Tanney or Lauletta don't show well, the loser just gets cut and is candidate for the practice squad.

The only way they keep only 2 QBs (Manning and Jones) on the 53 is if Jones plays so much better than Tanney or Lauletta that there is no sense having a 3rd QB. Tanney is the guy to keep around on the practice squad.
There is value to having your scout team QB protected

On the 53 man roster.

Imagine a situation where one of the QBs gets injured and then the team you are facing next week could claim your practice squad QB to leave you scrambling.

Maybe there are gentleman agreements against such a practice but we have all seen cast offs get picked up by opposing teams in an attempt to gain insight.
Giants arenít trading Tanny or KL

They cannot just "claim" someone off the practice squad; he has to sign with the other team. I would imagine if one of your quarterbacks got hurt you would activate the one on the practice squad who would stay with you, the system he knows.
That is a fair

That is an interesting strategy I never thought of BUT canít the scout team QB just say NO ? I donít think a practice squad player has to go to another team. There have been situations where a player has refused to go to another team.
It is almost a certainty that they will carry 3 QB's,  
Section331 : 8/12/2019 9:09 am : link
and I think DJ will be the odd man out as to who doesn't dress on Sundays. at least early in the season. Tanney knows the offense, so I think he'll be #2, at least for the first couple of games.
