NY Giants head coach Pat Shurmur won’t rule out playing backup quarterback Alex Tanney over Kyle Lauletta.
According to Giants head coach Pat Shurmur, backup quarterback Alex Tanney may get a shot to start a game as the season dwindles down.
Tanney, who went undrafted back in 2012, is now on his eighth NFL team at the age of 31.
He is the definition of a journeyman quarterback.
But as we’ve seen in Shurmur’s past, he’s done well with mediocre quarterbacks.
From Sam Bradford to Nick Foles to Case Keenum, all three have had their best seasons under Shurmur’s tutelage.
Rookie fourth-round pick Kyle Lauletta has yet to even dress for a game, as Tanney has been the team’s backup all season.
With Shurmur announcing that Eli Manning will start this week vs the Chicago Bears, and Tanney now getting consideration to start, it looks like Lauletta is still weeks away from getting a chance.
This is looking more and more like last year’s Geno Smith-Davis Webb situation.
