Its the only explanation I could come up with.
Once guys get labeled with things like "doesnt have a pro arm" its difficult to shake it, however when picking in the 5-7th round mcelroy is exactly the type of player teams should target. Lower risk, smart, hard working, etc
I also think his comments last offseason say a LOT in the sense that if there was ever a WINNER to come out of college he is it, so regardless of his age, he probably knows what it takes to be a winning TEAM.
As far as him being inactive, look at the situation.
1. Sanchez given the contract and 1000% organizational suport as the starter to quell any tebow controversy issues.
2. Most talked about backup qb ever
3. Mcelroy was coming off an injury
4. Very limited practice time these days, so he had no opportunity even if the organization was open to it.
We lost 14-10 to a tennessee team that committed 12 penalties. We turned the ball over 5 times, all 5 of which were sanchezs fault. The odds that mcelroy would have had only 2 TOs and we would have won are pretty high, so if he gets us 2 more wins this season, Rex should take every single ounce of blame for us not making the playoffs.
