Until we find ourselves a pure #1 at QB, i would like to see someone who proved that they can managed a team to a championship when surrounded by quality players even if it was on the college level.
I would like to see McElroy get a legitimate chance to show if he has anything to offer us. He was mighty fine in college and won a National Championship in the tough SEC. These jokes about his weak arm blah, blah are getting boring . He did get run over wih no protection in that one game he started. If Suckchez took those same shots he would have resembled Cinderella in tights on a football field. Yet the pundits only want to cream McElroy and make excuses for Sucky.
It could be that McElroy can be a very successful game manager for us. Time alone will tell. What is needed is a real chance with a real OC who can develop his talents.
