    Exactly!

    Sanchez has already set us back. Remember, we had a team that was SB worthy only two seasons ago. The only thing we were missing was a QB. If Sanchez had even played as good as say Joe Flacco or Matt Ryan we'd would have won a SB already.

    Drafting a QB is always a big risk, but it's a risk every team has to take.

    Don't feel bad about the Jets drafting Sanchez. They took a shot at putting a very talented team over the top. Unfortunately, it didn't work out, but as I said already, you can't blame Tanny for trying.

    McElroy has a Noodle arm. Will not be a franchise qb anywhere.
    If he is Brady II, necro this post and I will gladly eat crow
    Word. This is such a perfect parallel to the Denver Boncos - Kyle Orton & Tebow situation last year. Orton's demeanor on the field told all his confidence was shot and his propensity for crushing turnovers had Bronco fans screaming for his ouster. Tebow showed flashes and helped that team turn it around.

    Jet fans are so damn thirsty after seeing Sanchez stagnate the past 2 seasons that a player like McElroy looks like a tall glass of ice water. In a supposed passing league, how will a guy like McElroy thrive when scouts say he can't make all the NFL throws?

    Makes more sense to me to see if Tebow has made any progress as a passer.

    So, you want Tebow to get (another) chance instead of Greg getting his first. Why not let the guy who's never gotten his chance to show if he's made any progress? Why is it only Tebow that should get a chance?

    Your bias is showing.

    Well Tebow hasn't actually had a chance here, and he's made the most of his opportunities in Denver when given the chance.

    Quarterback who do what Tebow did, help turn teams around, make the playoffs and win usually get another chance in the NFL the following year.

    Typically it's a matter of being next in line, and considering he was labeled the #2 quarterback since day 1, and did everything that was asked of him, I would say that's him, but what do I know.

    Good God, you're right! You know what this means, don't you? WOODY! IT'S RYAN LEAF TIME! SIGN THAT BEAST!

    Trying is good. Making the correct choices priceless.

    The day after the end of this season the Jets can finally reach closure on the Tim Teblow (and his cult) error moving him from the inactive list to the waived list

    CAN'T WAIT!

    My guess is that Sanchez threatened to hold his breath until he was the starter again and Rex caved.

    But he doesn't hold the record for biggest collapse in AFCCG history, that belongs to Brady.

    Thats as stupid and pointless as asking who holds the record for most SB losses in Pats history.

    And most likely post season losses.

    Other than just plain trolling, do you ever think about actually trying to contribute anything worth reading?

    Why the hell are you here?

    not sure if posted... nice article on McElroy...


    Greg McElroy’s journey to NY Jets filled with ups and downs, and history indicates that losing starting job to Mark Sanchez won’t discourage backup quarterback
    McElroy’s ambitions are not limited to the NFL. He’s spoken about possibly attending law school in the offseason, and regularly tracks politics, which his father refers to as a “huge passion.”

    BY KEVIN ARMSTRONG / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

    PUBLISHED: WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2012, 3:51 PM
    UPDATED: WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2012, 4:02 PM

    COREY SIPKIN/NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

    Greg McElroy’s journey to the NFL includes stops in Los Angeles, where he plays hockey with Wayne Gretzky’s kids, Texas, where he battles to be the starting quarterback in high school, and Alabama, where he helps Nick Saban win his first BCS title with the Crimson Tide.

    Greg McElroy may have sparked the NY Jets, but sticking with Mark Sanchez is the right move for Rex Ryan, Gang Green
    As Rex Ryan decides between Mark Sanchez, Greg McElroy and Tim Tebow, there are some other strong arms for the NY Jets to consider


    IRVING, Texas — Deep inside the bowels of the Dallas Cowboys headquarters, past the framed photographs of square-jawed coaches like Tom Landry and broad-shouldered quarterbacks like Troy Aikman, Greg McElroy Sr., the senior vice president for sales, monitored a personnel decision from afar. When he learned that Jets coach Rex Ryan would keep Mark Sanchez as starter, just before 8 a.m. central, while checking e-mails, he typed a text message to his son, Greg, the reserve who replaced Sanchez on Sunday.

    "Hang in there," the father wrote.

    An hour later a response pulsed through the black iPhone.

    "No worries, Dad," the son wrote.

    The father pauses.

    "He's fine," he said. "I know he's fine."

    Little fazes junior. Allowed into pro locker rooms since his father's previous stop in Los Angeles as the marketing head of the Kings' organization during Wayne Gretzky's Stanley Cup run, McElroy Jr. maintained a studied approach, awaiting his turn each rung of the depth chart. The latest move, being inserted into Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, in front of fans dressed in paper bags, failed to unsettle him as he stepped in to complete five of his seven pass attempts, including the Jets' lone, go-ahead touchdown.

    "We're football players, so nothing is guaranteed," McElroy said. "There's no use stressing over the unknown."

    McElroy's managed to ascend above doubt the majority of his career.


    Born in West Hills, on the west end of the San Fernando Valley, his unique talents were recognizable from the jump. In kindergarten, his teacher recommended to his mother that he be put in the gifted program. Both parents insisted on balance. His mother introduced him to classical music, teaching him how to play the piano and embrace the arts. His father, a former lineman at the University of Hawaii, handled athletics. When the couple attended a meet-the-teachers event for the second grade, his father raised his hand.

    "Can we get an extension on minutes of recess?" he asked.

    Fathers laughed; his wife worried.

    "I just wanted to roll my eyes to the back of my head," she says.

    Sports proved no problem. He skated with Gretzky's sons in Los Angeles, absorbed discipline lessons in karate and accepted all roles in football. In the sixth grade, he played tight end, fullback and outside linebacker as an 11-year-old in Southlake, Texas, after his father accepted the Cowboys' position. He added another role during his first entrée into Texas football: reserve quarterback.

    "The starting quarterback is always the coach's son," Greg Sr. says.

    The son negotiated competition on the field with aplomb. At Southlake Carroll, a powerhouse in Class 5A, the Lone Star State's largest grouping, he battled to break through a bottleneck at quarterback with players from middle schools in the same district. He sat behind two Texas Players of the Year — Chase Wasson and Chase Daniel (now with the New Orleans Saints) and absorbed knowledge all the while. To get bigger, he drank protein shakes; to gain speed and strength he signed up to run with the pole vault.

    To be Daniel's backup as a junior was big; leading the Dragons, who play in front of 11,000 emerald-clad fans each Friday, as a senior played out on an unimaginable scale. For one pre-game speech, his father's old friend, Tommy Lasorda, the former Los Angeles Dodgers manager, addressed the Dragons. They won, finished the season 16-0 and took the state title.
    Recruiting brought an array of coaches to town. McElroy, looking to throw as frequently as possible, committed to pass-happy Texas Tech as a junior, but he also attended Alabama's camp and connected with the staff. He gauged the process regularly. Alabama was considering Jets teammate Tim Tebow as its top option, but when Tebow chose to sign with Florida, McElroy made his way to Tuscaloosa. New coach Nick Saban declined to afford McElroy the opportunity to wear No. 12, the digits of legends in crimson and white, and assigned him No. 17. McElroy earned 12, then won a national title back in California at the Rose Bowl as a senior. Gretzky watched from the stands.

    Progress slowed with the Jets. He was selected in the seventh round of the draft two years ago, and never suited up for a game until last week. His parents were as surprised as anyone, but he's kept busy throughout, grading footwork and releases in assisting Sanchez. At home, he continued to throw with Hal Wasson, the coach at Southake Carroll, on a community park off the coach's cul-de-sac by Hidden Lakes.
    "You throw the best ball I've seen in a high school quarterback," Wasson once told him. "It about falls from the sky. I'm going to need some of those NFL gloves to keep going with you though."
    McElroy's ambitions are not limited to the league. He reached the finalist stage for the Rhodes Scholarship while at Alabama, graduated magna cum laude with a 3.85 gpa and has spoken about possibly attending law school in the offseason, and regularly tracks politics, which his father refers to as a "huge passion." A conservative Republican, the son suffered through an uncommon losing streak of his realms when Mitt Romney lost to President Barack Obama in early November and Alabama was upended by Texas A&M four days later. The Jets lost to the Seahawks that Sunday.
    "That was an ugly weekend for him, wasn't it?" his mother says.
    Last week was a thing of beauty for the family. Their son, the one they refer to as "an information geek" strapped the helmet on and energized a team one more time. In the days after, it was his parents left fiending for intelligence in any form.
    "I'm really anxious to see what he does next," his mother says.
