Garrett says Wednesday's pre-season finale will be "important" in McGee-Carpenter battle for 3rd QB spot

Among the unsettled issues heading into Wednesday’s pre-season finale for the Dallas Cowboys will be the identity of the team’s third quarterback. Stepehen McGee, a fourth-year player from Texas A&M, is battling for the job with Rudy Carpenter, a free-agent signee and former Arizona State player in his third NFL season.

Coach Jason Garrett said both players will “get a lot of snaps” against the Dolphins to showcase their skills. McGee has experience with the Cowboys on his side but Garrett said game action “is the best way that we can evaluate” a third quarterback.

“For a lot of third quarterbacks around the league, these are important nights for those guys,” Garrett said. “(McGee) is going to get a lot of snaps in this ball game, to show what he can do. And Rudy is going to get a lot of snaps in this ball game to show what he can do. It’s an important night for them. We just want them to go out there and have some fun playing football and represent themselves the way they would.”

We already know what Carpenter can do. Nothing. That's why you cut him two years ago. Never did understand why you brought him back. Would have made more sense o bring T.O. back. At least he would have had a chance to contribute.
