If you have a name, please provide. Let's see what he looks like.
lets put it this way
How many QBs were drafted late or not drafted at all; sat on the bench for more than 2 years with only some preseason play and then became a Pro Bowler?
I believe that list would be very short
Drafting qb's to turn them into picks is generally a losing proposition. Far more qb's are drafted than are traded for picks. Kolb is an exception but he was a top 35 pick.
I don't have a ton of hope for McGee. He does not appear to have anticipation and accuracy which are the 2 most important parts of quarterbacking. He is athletic, has a good enough arm and has size.
Well the point is I don't need a name if we only carry 2 QBs, the names would be Romo and Orton.
The point of the matter is if you keep 3 QBs, you would at least like to be developing one of them for potential trade value in the future, and that value just can't be seen in McGee at the moment (although I'm not Jerry, maybe someone is pulling his chain about McGee).
We might be arguing over a player who still very likely will be cut this morning. However if he isn't than I think JG made a mistake here. The team isn't going to win anything if both Romo and Orton are out, and as much as I was a supporter of McGee in the past, I just don't see a guy who has progressed enough to warrant keeping on the roster as a developmental project.
Rather have Josh Johnson if that's what they are looking for.
That's my problem with McGee as well.
I don't think he's worth developing as a starter. I don't think he's a capable number 2, especially in Dallas with Orton on the roster. Not really sure what is worth is to the Cowboys. I would rather take a player who is worth developing as a solid back-up or a starter at another position (i.e., TE, WR, OL, etc.).
Broaddus on twitter said he talked with scouts last night they had waiver claims, indicated they are trying to get Coale back if they can.
Having Orton as our backup and I think he is even younger then Romo........there is no need to keep McGee.....
IMHO its a waste of a roster spot
I can understand the reasoning behind cutting my pet players.....but I cant wrap my head around this one.
McGee offers nothing except for the excuse to run our scout team.....and you can pick alot of QB's off the street to run a scout team to mimic Vick or RG3 and have that player on the PS
Its funny....this team has a elite QB in Romo and one of the best backups in Orton.....they have years left in their career ......yet.....Jason decides to keep 3 QB's......
Makes no sense....
Read that as well, also indicated they are heavily scouting TE's. Evan Moore?
Saw where he was cut, could be a real possibility for us.
Not sure who but I think 40 TE's were available now from cuts, so they are looking for someone.
Then McGee probably gets the axe from the roster!
Also said looking for special teams help.
Broaddus said they are not interested in Koppen or bringing in a DT for the Ratliff injury, going with Brent and Lissemore.
Yup and everyone will be able to move back off the ledge.
