can't stand Philip Rivers and the Chargers, so pulling for GMAC to have a great game. My NFL team, the Titans, are crap-tastic, so I got nothin'
I'm happy that Greg is getting the start. (I'm a 'Big Red' fan)
CRR made a smart decision starting McElroy. It will involve less wholesale changes
than would be needed with Tebow.
Not knocking Tim, but he ain't a Pro Style QB, and Greg is.
Tim has primarily played in the Wildcat, as a change of pace guy.
I don't see 4 quarters of Wildcat as a winning strategy.
Here's hoping that Greg lights up the scoreboard...
Hint, he's pretty popular around these parts.
Ask me about my vow of silence.
It is great that McElroy is getting a chance to show his worth. I wish they would have given up on Sanchez earlier and given McElroy his shot before it was over for the Jets (especially after he came in and led the offense to victory). Still, I think it would be hard for GMac to become a regular starter in the NFL. I just don't know if he has the arm strength needed to make the tough throws you have to make to just be effective in the NFL. I'm not even talking about the kind of throws that make you an elite quarterback.
What McElroy lacks in arm talent, he makes up in smarts. He will play within himself and avoid mistakes to the best of his ability. That alone is an improvement on Sanchez who has been a walking, talking turnover waiting to happen. The Jets have had some decent teams before with Pennington who never had a strong arm either. Hope for the best from McElroy.
Will be pulling for GMac. Hope he makes the best of it.

Namath, Todd, Lyons......let me be a jets fan as a little boy....
But my real allegiance was to Ozzie and the Cardiac Kids in Cleveland. I even think Johnny Davis joined him one year when Brian Sipe was QB and Reggie Rucker, And Company were there....

Howard:What? Galileo did his best work while drinking wine!
Raj: How do you know that?
Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!
One problem the Jets have is that they have tons of money tied up in Tebow and Sanchez. Sanchez especially will be hard to unload because of this. Money considerations will play a role in what the Jets will do, and it is probably a reason they have stuck with Sanchez so long.
As for which NFL team I pull for, I am like most people here in that I am for the Bama boys, and to a lesser extent, against the Auburn players(if both are on the same team, the Bama outweighs the barn). I do have a problem with teams of any sport from some cities or areas, or teams with too many prima donnas, but otherwise I can't get too worked up over pro sports. I will watch northern teams like Green Bay when the weather turns wintery just because I like cold and nasty weather, and on the flip side, I don't like dome games regardless of who is playing.
When was the last time a bama qb started an nfl game?

Several years ago there was a thread here asking which Bama players were thought to be good enough to play at the next level. My pick of him was met with much consternation.
