Facing make or break training camp, McGee focused on getting better and prepare for all opportunities

Former Texas A&M quarterback Stephen McGee has made little progress up the depth chart since being drafted by the Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2009 draft.

That the Cowboys signed Kyle Orton to be Tony Romo’s primary backup and brought back Rudy Carpenter to compete with him for the No. 3 job makes the 2012 camp a now or never situation for McGee.

“Obviously you don’t have to like it,” McGee said. “It’s the NFL.  It’s a business. Kyle is a great player I understand that. I have to make the most of the situation. And prepare for any opportunity that comes along.”

McGee said he focus heading into camp is continue to improve and be the best quarterback he can be.

But if he wants to stick with the Cowboy, he not only needs clearly win the No. 3 job but show enough improvement that the Cowboys feel the need to keep a third quarterback.

There is a good chance they keep two quarterbacks and sign Carpenter to practice squad as the third quarterback.

This situation is totally unfair. This young man has never been given sufficient opportunity. He has played better than the starter at times.
