The backup QB is very important supporting cast member. I actually think that Carr did a good job in this role. He seemed like he had the brain to play QB but Houston ruined him. Flynn would have been the best choice at this point but he wanted to be in GB.

    I prefer the Giants go back to their championship ways and carry only two QBs to keep a deeper active roster.
    Wasn't looking for an update of what a backup QB does for a living. I realize all of that. My point is simple, I never want to see our backup QB have to play.

    Yeah I'm willing to overlook Eli's 2 down years because he delivered the SB trophy twice in the last 5 years and I know the reasons for those down years had little to do with his skills as a QB!!!
    Josh Freeman hasn't done anything to earn any benefit of the doubt.

    The Vikings could've done without him last year

    Eli's 2 down years can be directly linked to his aging OL, anemic running game and being out of synch with the two receivers who skipped all the off season programs.
    Who's had 2 SB's in the last 5 years?

    sorry bro...Eli has sucked right along with the rest of the OL or WRs. His performance was certainly effected but to say it had "little" to do with it is just being blind. Eli's poor play compouned the poor performace of the entire offense.
