    mgteich's roster thread got me to thinking about this.

    The rule is simple: in addition to the 45-man roster, a team is allowed to have an "emergency" QB who dresses up but does not start the day on the 45-man roster. That emergency QB can enter the game, if necessary, but if he should enter before the end of the third quarter, neither of the starting quarterbacks can re-enter the game.

    Right now, the only other Patriot I can think of who's played QB is Troy Brown--and he's not officially a Pat.

    So--does anyone know if any of the other Pats have played/can play QB? Obviously, not being forced to carry a third QB would free up a spot somewhere else in the roster. :)

    It is Troy Brown.

    Just like Brady was emergency Punter in 2003, remember the Punt?

    Who else but Troy Brown? Pats need to get him signed before the earth opens up and swallows Gillette Stadium.
