I've been thinking alot about this awful news that came out today that several Jets players anonomously proclaimed thier disdain for QB Mark Sanchez and basically have the mindset that they CANT WIN with him at the helm and they have absolutely no confidence in him to be able to guide the Jets to a SuperBowl even though we are going under some serious new construction on Offense with the exit of Schitty and signing of Sparano.
If true, this would not be very good for our team chemistry/locker room aura or just the basic mentality of our team to have zero confidence that our Offense can consistently get the job done after 3 mediocre years of Sanchez. That brings me to our other QB we have on the roster, Greg Mcelroy, now maybe with the new shift and im sure a new scheme on Offense , Sparano will definetly hold an open competition for QB in the spring.
Taking a closer look at Mcelroy and I am seeing what might be a BETTER option than Sanchez, lets look at his stats for a second..
Started 34 games in college
436/658 5,691 yds 39 TD 10 INT 155.4 career QB Rate
Preseason Jets stats
36/59 335 yds 2 TD 0 INT
...All the talk about Mcelroy is that he is a very smart QB that makes good reads but doesnt possess a very big arm, but looking at Sanchez the past 3 years we havent seen him go deep very often either. I think the only way for Rex to win back this team and the locker room is to make changes, the coaching staff has been shaken up, now its time a few players get shaken up as well...If Mcelroy gets a fair shot to compete for a starting job in training camp only good can come out of it, and maybe even a new starter at QB for us next season...Sparano has no reason to play favorites to Sanchez and I highly doubt he will.
