I would think the main reason to keep Rex is to be a game day backup. Sending out a 2nd rookie on a day our rookie QB gets roughed up, why exactly is the benefit of putting out a rookie with minimal 1st team prep over Rex?

Sure one can argue that Cousins is a better QB, but for all the discussions of protecting III (and protecting rookie QBs over the decades, in general), I wonder how wise that it is. Risking losing 2 rookies in the same game after retaining a guy that has made it to the big dance. The 2nd rookie can reasonably be assumed to not have had the weekly practice reps nor experience needed to win anyways, right?
