Quick, what was the score of the 2016 preseason contest between NE and the NYG? In a year from now, yesterday’s contest will be as irrelevant as the one in 2016.
No starters (with the exception of FS Thompson and K Rosas) played. Yes, Rosas will get a roster job. This game is a roster tryout session.
I would be happy if Webb was made 2nd string and both Geno Smith AND Josh Johnson were cut. All 3 are equally inadequate for backing up a shot at a Super Bowl. They have different flaws, and frankly I am not so sure it is worth giving Smith (or Johnson) a roster spot for backing up. Webb can do it, even if he is behind on development. Am I leaning on Eli to play another 16 consecutive games? Yes. So be it. I’ll take the extra roster spot and develop another player, along with Webb.
Some players who look the part: Rudolph (pictured), Wynn, LaCosse.
