That’s right folks, my prediction is that here in about 3-4 years, Alex Tanney will be the next starting QB for the Dallas Cowboys! Here’s why:
#1 He has been very productive throughout training camp and preseason so far. On Saturday, Tanney blew Orton‘s 2 interception performance out of the water. A lot of people are saying Tanney should be Romo‘s primary backup and I think I’m right along there with them.
#2 He went 14 for 19 Saturday along with completing all of his first 11 passes and he gave the Cowboys their only score that day with a 5 yard pass to rookie Gavin Escobar, which were both their first TD’s in the NFL. Although he did throw an interception in the 4th quarter, he does still have a lot to learn. He’s just a rookie folks, this is just the beginning of Alex Tanney.
And last but not least, #3 He just has the name. I know that sounds a little whatever, but think about it. Tanney…Tanney…TANNEY.
Mark my words.
