With Jim Sorgi out, the Giants start looking for quarterbacks

First, the Giants didn’t have any healthy tight ends.

That problem has mostly been solved, but now they are almost fresh out of quarterbacks.  Eli Manning will sit out Saturday’s game against Pittsburgh, and Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that backup quarterback Jim Sorgi will miss the next 2-3 weeks with a shoulder injury.

The Bears now have competition in the veteran quarterback market.  (And the Giants may actually be willing to give someone guaranteed money, unlike Chicago.)

For Saturday, it appears the Giants will simply go with third-stringer Rhett Bomar and rookie Dominic Randolph from Holy Cross, who they just re-signed Thursday.

Sorgi’s injury has to be a big concern.  He was placed on injured reserve for a shoulder injury last year in Indianapolis, which is partly why the Colts released him.  Sorgi never underwent surgery, but this injury raises questions about whether the NFL’s equivalent of the Maytag repair man could hold up if ever called upon.

    That’s unusual since his teams have always looked for quarterbacks when Sorgi was IN, up to this point of his career.

    Sage Rosenfels?

  3. NYJALLFINGDAY says: Aug 19, 2010 11:34 AM

    They could take Kellen Clemens from the Jets.

    I think Sorgi is just exhausted. On Monday night he exceeded his quota of ‘passes thrown per season’… looks like he may be headed to IR.

    Go get Jeff Garcia.

    Minnesota has a couple clip board holders available!

  8. lifelongphinfan says: Aug 19, 2010 12:10 PM

    Why would the Bears have competition in the veteran QB market? They already signed someone this week and they have no desire to bring in another QB

  10. INTENSEG says: Aug 19, 2010 12:28 PM

    We see now Sorgi is soft. He only an experienced clipboard holder, thats it.

  11. Hugh Jorgan says: Aug 19, 2010 12:50 PM

    I agree with NYJALLFINGDAY. Kellen Clemens only has to move the contents of his locker down the hall and he’s good to go.

  12. ham1 says: Aug 19, 2010 12:56 PM

    Troy Smith heh heh go get em g-girls

  13. Bordner says: Aug 19, 2010 1:01 PM

    Finally! A chance for Jamarcus to redeem himself on the biggest stage in the world!! Make it happen Giants!!!
    No, even the Giants don’t deserve that.

  14. Buck It says: Aug 19, 2010 1:02 PM

    Looks like the Bears and Giants will start the bidding war for Vinny Testaverde, LOL

  15. RexR#1 says: Aug 19, 2010 1:05 PM

    This is Bomar’s chance to take advantage and become the #2 QB. Bomar looked pretty decent vs. the Jets last week. Both passing and running.

  16. prophet of the light says: Aug 19, 2010 1:21 PM

    They Patriots are more than happy to take first round picks for backup QBs (or really high seconds)

  17. FumbleNuts says: Aug 19, 2010 1:21 PM

    Go get Sage Rosenfels.

  18. SomeFans says: Aug 19, 2010 1:22 PM

    Pat White could be the answer…?… why not try!

  19. Playmaker's Dealer says: Aug 19, 2010 1:26 PM

    really want to see Bomar play– this guy might be pretty damn good

  20. Gautam says: Aug 19, 2010 2:03 PM

    forget the football, Sorgi cannot even hold a clipboard properly

  21. jj jones says: Aug 19, 2010 2:05 PM

    When it comes to Jim Sorgi, “throwing shoulder” is an oxymoron.

  22. thefreak99 says: Aug 19, 2010 2:06 PM

    yes go get jamarcus russell

  23. bspurloc says: Aug 19, 2010 2:06 PM

    Bomar was faster than tomlinson. go with bomar.

  24. #1finfan says: Aug 19, 2010 2:47 PM

    Don’t overlook Vick, looked good against the Jags

  25. Calir says: Aug 19, 2010 3:25 PM

    Giants fans have to be happy they don’t have to face the Jets this weekend.

  26. jj jones says: Aug 19, 2010 3:26 PM

    “#1finfan says:

    He didn’t look good. He lost a fumble and had an interception against the Jaguars second and third teamers.

  27. Juttster says: Aug 19, 2010 3:53 PM

    That statement about the Bears being unwilling to guarantee a “camp arms” contract….. You really don’t like the Bears do you Florio?.. Take a time-out dude.

  28. steelers rule says: Aug 19, 2010 4:48 PM

    Get Jeese Palmer or Phil Simms!

  29. BIG BLUE in tx says: Aug 19, 2010 5:13 PM

    Everyone is good against the Jags. But what happens when we have to play an NFL team?

  30. jj jones says: Aug 19, 2010 6:54 PM

    And yet they swept Houston last year and beat the Jets in NY.

    In defense of Sorgi, he did take a couple big hits on Monday, thanks to the Jets blitzing on almost every down, so it’s no wonder he got hurt. At least now we finally get to see what Rhett Bomar can do. Hopefully he makes the most of the opportunity.
    I really hope that the Giants are getting the injuries out of their system in the preseason, cause damn they have a lot of guys out right now.
