QB Stephen McGee Not Expected To Compete For Backup Job

Cowboys quarterback Stephen McGee closed the season at Philadelphia as the Cowboys’ starter and led the team to a victory. While it wasn’t pretty, it gave McGee and the Cowboys confidence that he could one day move up to No. 2 behind Romo. An offseason with no coaches, however, hurts McGee’s development.

He was able to get the work in during the player-run practices in May with Kitna remaining home, but that is not a substitute for critiques from the coaches as he enters a pivotal year. Kitna is in the final year of his contract and played well after a slow start following Romo’s broken collarbone and is entrenched as the backup.
