Rant My Life: New York Jets Making Right Move By Starting Greg McElroy
The New York Jets entered Monday’s game against the Tennessee Titans in position to still earn a Wild Card spot in the playoffs if they could win their final three games of the regular season and receive help from other teams in the AFC. Unfortunately, those dreams were shattered quickly when they fell to the Titans 14-10 as Mark Sanchez struggled once again by throwing four interceptions and finishing with less than 200 passing yards for the fifth time in six games.
When taking all of this into consideration–it’s no surprise to hear the news Rex Ryan is going with Greg McElroy as his starter at quarterback for Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers.
Ryan announced this week his intentions to give McElroy his first career start since the Jets are out of the playoff picture and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he received another start for the final week of the regular season as well if Sunday goes well. This may seem like a surprise move on Ryan’s end considering everything the team did to acquire Tim Tebow during the offseason, but when thinking ahead to the 2013 season–it’s the right move to make.
With all of the uncertainty surrounding Sanchez heading into next season, it’s clear Ryan wants to see whether or not McElroy is capable of handling the starting job and these final two weeks could give some sort of indication as far as what direction to go in 2013. Sanchez has received plenty of opportunities to prove himself throughout his career and Tebow is most likely on his way out as well considering how little he was used in 2012–so why not see what McElroy is capable of when seeing a full game of action?
