Who's the best backup QB in Beast?
By Matt Mosley
New York Giants backup quarterback Jim Sorgi is in line to make roughly $1.15 million in 2010, according to Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger. If he sees significant playing time, the contract could grow to $1.8 million. But the Giants are obviously hoping that Sorgi never has to play a meaningful down, something that he's familiar with from his time with the Colts.
I'm still trying to determine exactly how Sorgi injured his shoulder in '09 -- since he wasn't playing. There were rumors that it was a non-football injury, but even folks close to the situation haven't come up with an explanation. I'm sure the Giants did their due diligence in determining how the injury occurred. And if I ever hear the story, I'll be happy to pass it along.
By the way, do you guys feel like Rhett Bomar will have a legitimate opportunity to win the No. 2 role? One more question: Who has the best backup quarterback in the NFC East? Here's how I'd rank them (I'm leaving a certain Wildcat quarterback out of the mix):
1. Kevin Kolb
2. Jon Kitna
3. Jim Sorgi
4. Colt Brennan
If you determine that Michael Vick is the backup quarterback in Philly rather than Kolb, then he'd also head the list. Thoughts? Concerns? Praise?
