Default QB Troy Brown

Troy Brown stepped in at QB for the Patriots tonight and will be listed as either the emergency QB or the number two QB. New England will carry Brady, Cassel, and now Troy Brown at that position.

Apparently he will be the emergency answer should Brady and Cassell both go down in the same game.

Of course , should that happen they'd sign a vet before the next game - but its comforting to know that BB is always one-step ahead of the game.

I see.

So you dont think it was a good idea to test out an emergency back-up when you are probably only going to carry 2 QB's on the roster?

Maybe you have a better idea of someone on the Patriots roster who would be better suited to this role?

Erm - maybe you aren't understanding what the situation is here.

Troy Brown will be a member of the 53 who is the Emergency Back-up - should Brady and Cassel go down in the same game then he would have to fill in for the remainder of that game.

There would be no point carrying a 3rd QB on the practice squad as he would not be eligible to play in that game.

A team can name an emergency QB (usually the practice squad guy...unless you dont have one...ala BB). This emergency QB does not count against the 53 man list eligible for the game. He can only enter the game if the first 2 QB's are injured...

so..as you can see...having an emergency QB on your practice squad DOES NOT affect your 53 man dress list for any particular game...

NFL rules..read them..learn them...live them....

Lack of veteran QB OK with coach, GM
By Kevin Acee
UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER

August 30, 2006

"......Both Smith and Schottenheimer said the team might go with two quarterbacks. Schottenheimer said long-snapper Dave Binn would be his emergency QB in that case. The fact is, just five teams used three quarterbacks last season.

Teams do sometimes forgo having a third quarterback. Indianapolis and Denver did so last season. Denver's backup, Bradlee Van Pelt, was in his second season and had never thrown an NFL pass.......
"


Yea...BB is one step ahead of.....? His originality is overwhelming.
