Greg McElroy Named Starter vs Chargers

28 posts in this topic

Not surprised he's in this position. I thought the Colts should have drafted him instead of Rucker last year. This guy is a good player, and I was criticized for thinking that. I was right in the end.

 

Anyways, what are your thoughts on McElroy, and do you think they have a better chance of winning? I think they do.

Right now, McElroy is solid, not a world beater. But the offense he is in, if he is a good game manager that moves the chains and does not turn it over, that would be infinitely better than SANCHIZE.

And the purpose of having Tim Tebow all year was???!!!!

Yeah. It's like the poor kid was held hostage by the Jets. What did he do to deserve that? Sigh.

But that was his own doing though. John Elway was getting a better 4th round pick from the Jags than the Jets but gave the option to Tebow as to where he would like to land. Tebow chose the Jets (hoping he could supplant the starter over there???), and now finds out it ain't no promised land. :)

 

At least that is the story given by several Broncos fans about Tebow's trade.

He's decent, from what I have seen..It will most definitely help them have a better shot at winning. Even that 9 year old girl would do better than either Sanchez or Tebow... :yay:

The natives have been restless all year and we want Tebow!!!!!

And we won't get him. Sigh.

Amen! Let him go. It's obvious Rex didn't want him there in the first place. I'd love for him to go some place (Jacksonville?) and eventually beat the Jets somewhere down the road. Again.

How would mcelroy have helped us?

I hate to quote First Take at all but Stephen A. Smith had it right.  The jets wanted to win the headline battle.  Not necessarily games.

Starting Kaepernick was a bad idea? Over Alex Smith? Really?

I know I am about to get shunned for this, but we should sign Tebow to play as a power running back to compliment Ballard. I honestly think he'd be solid.

IMO he's far more suited for the TE position. He is an incredibly gifted athlete whom possess all the inherent athletic ability of a top-tier TE. A few years of receiving and blocking coaching would do him up.

Fake punts. As you may well know, every NFL team runs at least 7 or 8 fake punts every game.

I see him as more of a fullback.

It would be a more intuitive placement for him to start out at the FB position, as he would need intensive route coaching to transition to the TE position. However, given his athletic ability, I see his talents being far more utilized as a TE long-term.

I just liked him as a backup. I think he could become a real solid backup for any team, and potentially a starter for a bad one.

 

I think he could have provided depth on this team for many years.

It's a little too late for that now. He should have done this some weeks ago when they were still alive.

Perhaps.  I just question whether or not he could become a good enough route runner at this stage of his career to make it as a TE.

The purpose was the big media circus. Rex Ryan + big mouth players + big name media star = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

 

 

That's all it was over. I have been critical of Tebow in the past, but I do think he's a good kid. He's a good role model, but not an NFL quarterback. on the other hand, the Jets love media attention. They got Cromartie and the rest of those big mouths, along with Rex, and then comes Tebow who really is a positive influence seeing he's not one to run his mouth like them, but they only seen money in him.

Tim Tebow Conspiracy.

We WILL get to the bottom of this. As well as many other various important issues.

I agree. FB is his position. He can learn to catch checkdowns and block for his RB or be in goal line situations and get the direct handoff or snap as well. Tebow was hoodwinked by the Jets' red carpet recruitment or whatever you want to call it. Plus, a press conference for a backup QB??? Seriously??? Only happens with the Jets.

 

That is why the GM should go and Bill Polian should be hired. It starts with the top and it was the GM's decision more than Rex Ryan's decision, IMO.

I stated when they brought him in, and still to this day think its is true that they brought Tebow in to try and light a fire under Sanchez - to motivate him to compete harder so they could see if they had anything in him or if they had to start over.   Clearly they never had any intention at all of giving Tebow a chance to play - from day one they knew that yet mislead the kid!  Hopefully he gets another chance somewhere that will give him an honest shot.    Jets brass should be ashamed as human beings!

    • Jeff George eeeeeekkkkkkk!    When his Mommy ran on the field I though we had been transported to a Pee Wee football game.
    • Much respect to you man.   Most people would not be able to admit their flaws as open as you have.    If you felt threatened then you have a right to protect yourself. That dude knew what time it was, and you embarrassed him as he should have been.   It's not like this poor slob was an innocent person here.    Maybe you went too far, but I ain't mad at you. The PC police will scowl at you, but deep down inside everyone likes it when bullies get put in their place.
    • The more I think about Luck the more I have to agree.  He will more then likely be an elite QB someday but not this year.  I think lucks contract will hold him back.  He doesn't have that Nak just yet to carry a team and that contract will catch up to he team.  The colts FO won't be able to find help for him because of salary cap issues.  So Luck almost has to be that guy the QB that no matter how bad your Oline is or how bad your defense is you still have to somehow win! 
    • I have to second the poster's question: How are you not in jail (not trying to be rude, just baffled)?    Although I don't practice in the criminal law realm (I chose the civil side), I do know that what you described constitutes criminal and civil assault + battery.   If the other guy had accosted you/gotten physical with you first, your reaction would have been self defense.  But what you described just sounds like something you can be held both criminally and civilly liable for.   I wouldn't be posting about that encounter on message board, although now it is probably too late.      
    • I watched the game this morning, but still would like to go back another time and rewatch when I can.  There was a lot of pressure mostly from Costanzo.  Kelly had a couple issues, and Clark sucked as we all figure he will early on. Good did alright to me outside of the false start and I think one play where I saw him get walked back a little bit by Taylor Hart into Lucks throwing lane.  I think we've gotten better at designing hot routes and screens for Luck to defeat the zero pressures.  I saw us defeat a number of them, but we are still not blocking them well.  Still feel like we will be okay with a full week of game planning versus how we approach these preseason games. Getting Reitz back will help and I'm really glad Mewhort is only out 2-4weeks and will not require surgery.  Don't feel like we will consistently see Kelly have a bad game so I don't have much concern there.     I think there's some kind of issue with Costanzo going on that needs to be fixed ASAP, but I don't expect him to play badly every week.  Blocking should also improve once we get Reitz back.  Can't wait for Haeg to get back because I don't think Clark is ready to be anybodies back up at right tackle.  That could improve later on in the season I suppose.  Still feel like we are fully capable of being a really good offense.  Just have to clean up how we are handling these blitz pressures.  Once the regular season starts and we are able to get Gore more than 4 carries I'm expecting the running game to improve.  Like that we have added Ridley as expected.   Secondary in my eyes should be much better with the starters.  Especially when we get Cromartie, Davis, and Robinson all out there together.  I'm expecting the 3,4, and 5th corners to be Smith, Mitchel, and Butler.  All we really know about is Butler, but I think Mitchel and Smith will be solid.  Green and Adams should start against Detroit with Geathers still on the mend.  Once Geathers gets back I think Green will play a vital role in helping us cover the Tight Ends.  I see quite a bit to be optimistic about when everything comes together with the injury situations.  Especially once we get Art Jones(saw him make a nice run stuff when I watched the game) Langford and Anderson back.  Saw some encouraging things from Ridgeway in that game as well.   I think we can be a really good team once we clean up a few key areas and guys get healthy.
