I think his INT just closed the book for me. Guy wide open in the flat, nearest Patriot defender is about 15 yards away... and he underthrows it deep into double coverage. He decides where he's going with the ball before the snap.
Look, would it be SO bad just to check out McElroy? Just to see what the kid has? I mean everyone keeps saying that Sanchez is STILL the best QB on the team. When it comes to the debate between Sanchez and Tebow, I have no doubt everyone is right, Sanchez is certainly better than Tebow.
But WHAT have we seen from McElroy that makes him no option? I mean honestly? Can someone please explain this to me?
The only things EVERYONE on this board have ever seen from McElroy is good preseason play. Certainly not much to rely on. But WHERE is the evidence that he is just so bad?
Is it the lack of a strong arm? If it is, you may have a point, but what about guys like Joe Montana? Montana never threw a strong ball and yet he's widely considered to be one of the very best QB's to ever play the game.
It can't be pedigree. The kid won TWO national championships at Alabama. That's something Sanchez could never say.
And probably the very BIGGEST reason favoring McElroy? He's NOT Sanchez. Removing Sanchez at this point is ADDITION BY SUBTRACTION.
I say give the kid a chance. We are watching the defense play great today and we cannot pull out the victory because of our QB. That's not fair to the defensive players. At the very least, they should be given an opportunity to win when they play as well as they have today.
