    That 10 consecutive completion touchdown drive could keep him on an active roster and off practice squads around the League. I think you have to keep him but I'm no NFL GM or Professional Football Scout.


    He could have the "It" factor better than Moore and I think he does. Wonder if Stephens can make the PS.

    Unfortunately these pre-season games are nothing more than a Tanney audition tape for his next employer. Either he is #2 on the roster or he is gone. He will not last one day on the practice squad because he will be snatched up quickly. I wish the league would put in rules that allow a team to protect themselves from other teams taking the players they current team wants to keep.

    He might give the Cowboys a better chance to win in the future than Orton, He is fun to watch.

    Tanney seems different than Moore.

    A lot of these kids will never see the active roster if such a rule existed.

    Again, just 1 game. Need more evidence in next 2 games.

    Why do we care? Romo is our QB for at least the next 4 seasons at which point Tanney is a near 30 year old QB. That's not who you start over with. Try to get him to the PS. If you can't oh well.

    Our future at QB isn't in this camp. In fact the future of our QB position is a high school Junior or Senior.

    Have no idea why people are spending so much time thinking about this kid.

    You probably would have said the same thing in 2003.

    Did I sleep through the 2003 season when we had a top qb who just signed a 108M contract?

    Did that happen and I just missed it?

    What part of Tanney will be 30 years old before this team even considers moving on from Romo didn't you understand?

    Because he can be turned into a draft pick or a backup qb

    This has nothing to do with romo

    Maybe that's true. Maybe.

    Is it worth cutting a guy on the roster bubble who is young and could potentially contribute this season or be developed into a starter at a position of true need?

    He could become our backup and let us release Orton next year and save about $3M off the salary cap in a season when we'll be very tight against the cap.

    He also could potentially be traded for a good package if he ends up getting in a few games and lighting things up. Romo has missed significant time in 2 seasons thus far in his career.

    The bottom line is that you don't just give up good football players for nothing. The hardest position to find is a starting caliber QB.

    It's a gamble, but a gamble I would take.

    But keeping him has a cost (the player you cut). And really we are talking about 11 straight completions which suddenly has people talking about cutting Randle to keep him. Yeah...no.

    Romo had to prove himself over and again in the preseason. And in practice. As any young QB has to. Tanney is no exception.

    We shouldn't keep any rookie QB prospects because we have signed Tony to a 108m contract.

    Not sure where you got that from. I certainly didn't say that.

    Besides Alex Tanney is not a rookie and is 25 years old.

    Pass.
