Rex Ryan will not name his starting quarterback today.

I really don't see how Rex can go to anybody other than Greg McElroy. We have talked plenty about accountability and the message getting sent to the team by certain moves. What kind of a message would it send to the locker room if McElroy came off the bench, won the game, and then was not rewarded with the start this week?
If what we saw on Sunday was any indication, the team seems to be in McElroy's corner. I didn't see anybody make a public endorsement, but this team played with a lot more energy from the instant it was clear McElroy was coming into the game. If the locker room is behind Greg to the extent it appeared, there is no choice to be made.
