Have to be realistic with McElroy. If he is named the starter, he basically starts training camp that day. He has no experience or chemistry with the starting offense.
The schedule is soft. Hopefully we can run the ball and make things easy on him. But at the same time I hope they give him enough responsibility so we can make a fair evaluation of him. I don't want to see the training wheels on all the time.
The only thing I take from today is that he was refreshingly accurate and made some smart decisions by throwing the ball away. But he must learn to slide, Sanchez had the same problem.
we needed somebody to pee on the cornflakes and ruin what ended up a nice day and the beginning of the McEra for the Jets
Sanchez has been terrible lately. The butt fumble just made things worse. There are 2 major problems with Sanchez: 1. he didn't learn much his first 2 years and has instead regressed since and 2. he is like what Kerry Rhodes was a Hollywood type.

So many dumb posts in this thread it has to go to the dump.
Cut out the personal attacks. Last warning. You know who you are

I know how it works around here, it happens with every QB...
McElroy is the current flavor of the month...
say what you want, his pocket presence was great.
Also his ball handling and footwork are light years better than Sanchez.
He's much more schooled, fluid handing off the ball too, there's a reason the Jets ran those counters so well and why Cumberland was wide open for the td.
His fakes, redirections were holding the defense.
There's no doubt that Sanchez has more raw talent but he's lazy/sloppy/undisciplined (take your pick) in his approach.
That's why he sucks.
The kid has a lot Pennington in him, and I think his arm is actually every bit as strong pre-injury.
If this team had a true game manager (like McElroy) this season, they would be over .500 and in the hunt, I truly believe that.
