And let's not make this a tebow vs McElroy debate. Either guy succeeding could save Rex and tannys job. So do u root for our team, for mediocrity, a 8-8 record. Or do u want to clean house
My first answer is of course no. But I'll play devil's advocate here:
What if a different QB came in (preferably McElroy)...and the offense actually improved? What if the team started converting 3rd downs? What if Hill suddenly started getting looks and catching 4/5 passes per game? What if the running game improved as a result of more sustained drives?
95% of the board realizes that Mark Sanchez is a dud, and even if he gets it together elsewhere he'll never succeed in NY. If the QB is as big a problem as we think it is, part of me would actually want to see GMac come in an improve the offensive production.
It would mean that the holes aren't as glaring as they appear to be right now. There's nothing to get excited about on offense - nothing. But if it really is on the signal caller, then if we see some increased efficiency we at least know that getting a new guy under center is the primary focus of the offseason. To me, that would be worth a few extra wins, and I don't think Tanny & Rex should lose their jobs if the reason they look like bums right now is #6.
Just a thought - I do realize it's highly unlikely that either of these backups would fare any better with this offense.
