    Re: Greg McElroy named Jets starting QB for Sunday's game vs. Chargers

    Read somewhere online that it would cost the Jets ove $17MM against their cap next year if they let Sanchez go, so he will be with the Jets next year. His salary will be $8.2MM, so he is pretty much untradable. That means that either Tebow or McElroy will have to be let go in the off-season, maybe both, to bring in a real back-up plan in case Sanchez remains Sanchez. They may try to trade for someone like Kirk Cousins, or they may just draft someone. I would laugh my rear off if they signed someone like Vick.

    I really don't think that McElroy will be able to make enough of a difference in these last two weeks to save his job. If the Jets react like they did after they were eliminated last year, the team will be mailing it in the next two weeks.

    unfortunately, Greg is in an impossible situation. The NY Jets will ruin the careers of Greg, Tim and Mark.

    Exactly. Tebow asked to be traded(or released)out of that mess today.

    You realize that if the Mayans are right and the world ends Friday Greg McElroy will be the Jets starting quarterback for all eternity.

    Greg's playing time will be an interview for other teams. Whether for a backup position or starter. No one knows. But if he performs well, trust me, with the state of the quarterback position many NFL teams are in, he'll get a look.

    Tebow has been told by a source very high up that the world will not end on 12/21.

    So are the jets going to have 3 QB's on their active roster Sunday?

    You have to go even further back to find the last Alabama QB to start an NFL game and win.

    99.9% sure it'll be Sanchez because of the potential for McElroy to do just as bad. The only way they activate Tebow at this point is if they play him at another position.

    Greg gets the start because Tebow is not tradeable.

    Not much of the country will be seeing the Jets game, unless you have Sunday Ticket:

    Link to the coverage map (Note, these can change, but they are usually pretty solid by this point in the week): http://www.the506.com/temp11.html
