    We won today....Can we dream for just 1 night that McElroy is a 7th round heist of Brady proportions.

    Would be nice

    Chad Pennington is Chad Pennington...Tannebaum & Rex need to go get Chad off the Kentucky horse farm & get him ready for opening day 2013.

    At age 37 the Jets can get 3-5 years of quality football.

    If you want to dream think about Brady's stats in his first game:
    5/10 46 yards 0 td 0 int

    IMO, McElroy is an improvement over Sanchez in that he will make fewer mistakes. I doubt he is a long term answer. But the fact that he is a better option than Sanchez speaks volumes of where Sanchez is right now...and is an indication that the Jets QB of 2014 is not yet on the roster.

    I'll take another Pennington. We won our last AFC East with Pennington.

    Chad's problem was that he believed that he didn't need to improve his physical limitations until it was too late.

    Mac can improve his arm strength through offseason conditioning. The difference between him and Chad will be if Mac attempts to do so.

    Maybe he can fly to Florida and train with Vinny?


    Vinny's practice habits always kept his Rocket-Arm in shape even at 44 years old(he's now 49 and I still think he can sling it).

    Wasn't the physical limitation that he had the bone structure of a 90 year old woman?

    Previous Jets QB's who wore #14....Richard Todd & Neil O'Donnell. Can McElroy become a better QB than those guys?

    He could do something. Many, and I mean many NFL QBs have improved their arm strength. All the greats today have done it. Peyton improved his armstrength, so did Rodgers, Brees, and Brady.

    I remember early in Chad's career before the injury string when a reporter asked him if he planned to work on his arm strength in the offseason Chad flat out said, "No, you can win in the NFL without a rocket arm."

    That answer surprised me and gave me pause. The issue isn't about trying to get a rocket arm, its about improving your game. All the top players in any sport do that. The fact that Chad essentially said, "my way is good enough and I'm not changing" was telling.

    I blame Chad's mother for not serving him enough milk as a kid.

    Yep, that about sums it up.

    McElroy just needs to keep the TO's down. We have a better defense than each of our last four opponents have offense so with limited TO's and spark I think McElroy deserves the shot. I still think we need a QB for the future, but what if McElroy can be a stop gap for two years while we build up the OL, RB, WR's and LB's??

    Sanchez is like the bad dude in a scary movie. Just when you think he's dead comes back for more

    We are not making the playoffs - - all that's left to talk about is the future. That means a whole lot of Mac talk all day

    We have no clue what McElroy can do. I saw him in training camp and he had the best arm of the three players. Last year he spoke to the media about the turmoil in the Jets lockerroom. I thought he was gone for sure. A 3rd string QB making those comments. Obviously there is something about the guy if they kept him around.

    The team needed a spark and McElroy did that. I'd like to see him play a full four quarters and see how he responds. Everyone says only one touchdown but remember we were about to score a second when Shonn Greene kneeled on the 1-yard line. Two touchdown in a quarter and a half isn't too bad.

    Or post a call to Greg Anderson. Just like Mr. Brady did. Of course, just to inquire about California weather.
