Why are they not even dressing McElroy, there are posters here who have all sorts of crap names for this kid who has never been given a chance to prove anything. If you ask me, I would look at him before Tebow , Tim is not a long term answer, at least not for the Jets anyway. So it makes sense to look at the kid who won a national championship running a pro style offense under a guy (Saban) who could be a damn good pro HC if he chose to.
This was a kid who (like it or not ) spoke his mind and the truth about the situation last year. That is the sign of guy who will hold those around him accountable. As far as being a noodle arm, we had another one of those guys here and won a division championship with him. His arm was more then strong enough before being injured, what was never injured was his football smarts, which is why he went else where and even with a poorer arm did it again.
I know everyone thinks the backup is the answer, yet how many BU's have won national titles,just saying don't dismiss McElroy without at least see what he can do.
Think about it, who has a better chance of success in NFL a great arm and no football brains or the average armed QB with a high football IQ?
