* Normal starter returned from injury/rest.
1 LeBaron and Meredith rotated at QB for every play of the Week 5 game against the Eagles.
2 Coach Tom Landry couldn’t decide between Morton and Staubach and so rotated starting QBs every game.
3 Landry decided to rotate Morton and Staubach every play of the Week 7 game against the Bears.  Morton started every series.
4 Staubach came in as relief and led a comeback from 28-13 down in the 4th quarter of the NFC Divisional game against the 49ers.
5 White crossed the picket line four days before the first replacement game, but did not play in that game and threw only 4 passes in the second.

* Normal starter returned from injury/rest.
1 The Giants alternated QBs throughout the games.
2 Conerly typically came in as relief for Heinrich midway through games; coach Jim Lee Howell’s theory was that Heinrich got team off to fast start during which Conerly could observe opposing defense’s scheme from sidelines.
3 Guglielmi lost 31-0 in his only start and was traded to the 49ers the next week.  He refused to report, leaving him one career game short of his NFL pension.  (After being waived by the Giants, Guglielmi signed with the Eagles.)
4 Morton was the only Giant booed during introductions in the first game played at Giants Stadium.
5 Simms would have been the starter going into 1982, but tore his right knee in preseason. Brunner was named the starter for 1983; Simms asked for a trade, but none came. Simms’ bad luck continued when he dislocated his right thumb in relief of Brunner in Week 6.
6 Hostetler’s 1990 Giants won the Super Bowl.  Coach Bill Parcells quit in March; new coach Ray Handley named Hostetler the starter for 1991 during training camp.
7 Manning was drafted by the San Diego Chargers, despite Manning’s public displeasure with joining the Chargers. The Giants drafted Philip Rivers and both teams immediately executed a trade.

* Normal starter returned from injury/rest.
1 LeBaron signed with the CFL Calgary Stampeders for the 1954 season.
2 Guglielmi was drafted into the Air Force for active duty after 1955 season and wasn’t released from service until July 1958.
3 Pro Football Reference mistakenly lists Rutledge as the starter for Week 7 and Humphries as the starter for Week 10 (the infamous Body Bag Game).
4 Johnson on Robiskie’s decision to change QBs: “I think that decision’s made from up top [from owner Daniel Snyder] … I think that’s obvious.”
5 More likely, George was benched for changing a play call the previous week against the Steelers.  Robiskie called for a slant; George instead threw deep and was intercepted.
