New York Jets: Greg McElroy Should be Named Starter for Rest of the Season
The New York Jets season is over and so might the Jets career of Mike Tannenbaum, Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez. It might be easier for the Jets to get rid of Tannenbaum and Ryan, even if Ryan is owed guaranteed money.
After Sanchez’s performance on Monday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans, can the Jets really afford to keep starting Mark Sanchez? The Jets have nothing to lose by starting Greg McElroy for the last two games of the season.
When McElroy came into the game against the Arizona Cardinals there was a noticeable difference in how the offense responded. Sanchez has lost this team and Ryan needs to do something if he doesn’t want to lose the team.
Starting McElroy wouldn’t do any harm but it would send a message to the rest of the team that nobody is safe. Ryan needs to send the message that there will be no quitting, that everyone is playing for their roster spot, from the practice squad all the way to the starting quarterback.
After the end to last season when in-fighting reared its ugly head it is Ryan’s job to keep the order in the locker room.
Starting McElroy is easier than starting Tim Tebow because you don’t have to completely rearrange personnel to suit McElroy’s style. McElroy can step in and guide the offense with Tebow making his cameo appearances.
However, given the stubbornness that Ryan has displayed, especially around his quarterback, I doubt that he will make his change. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ryan rides Sanchez like a cowboy riding a horse into the sunset.
