Mcelroy to start against San Diego

133 posts in this topic

9 turnovers in 3 games. 9. Against 3 teams with a combined record of 12-30.

But to be fair, 5 were in one game so...

Yeah, that doesn't really help. Carry on lol.

Rumors are rumors, but multiple media sources reported a couple of weeks back that Rex wanted to start Mac while Tanny and Sparano were in favor or Sanchez. Rex went with Sanchez.

If these rumors are correct, then Rex just won the power struggle and both Tanny and Sparano are either gone or re-assigned. In other words, Rex set it up as, "You want your guy? Fine. Let's see if he ruins the season." And Sanchez did end up ruining it.

So difficult to tin that power struggle. Rex on Michael kay now. Delusional gibberish.

Rex was just interviewed on 1050. Typical hangdog bullsh*t. I used to give Rex tons of credit for not flipping out in interviews, but it occurred to me just now that he doesn't flip out because he's under zero pressure and his job isn't in jeopardy because there's zero accountability in the organization and he knows it.

Highlight of the interview: they couldn't activate McElroy for the game because Clyde Gates had a concussion earlier in the week, just like he couldn't activate McElroy against the Jags because of McKnight's mythical injury.

Dayum...you have quite the hard on...Did Tebow come to McDonalds and kick the mop out of your hands?

For starters, I think you might need to have your mommy and daddy sit you down to teach you what exactly "hard on" means little boy. Clearly it's not something you have a firm grasp on (if you know what I'm saying :rim:).

Aside from that, I'm not sure what exactly is so unbelievable about thinking Tebow sucks at playing QB. You know the reason for someone thinking that could be, are you ready for this... that he does. Can you imagine that? After all, there's three years worth of evidence that supports that theory. But hey, don't let something like that get in the way, right?

"leaning"? If that idiots start Sanchez, I hope he ends up working at McDonalds.

Like they'd even take him.

It was obvious after the Thanksgiving disaster. This is a delusional man and he simply should not be the head coach of a professional football team.

It's tough. This could very well end up being a Belichick-in-Cleveland situation. Rex has already tried to pivot to a more serious type mid-stream. Maybe he's learning some lessons.

The problem is there was never a plan to do this too early. The Sanchez crash and burn was always the route this team was taking.

SOmething really doesnt add up. Maybe 5 years down the line we'll find out...but there's a disconnect between Woody, Tanny and Rex. It'd be interesting to know who's actually saying what and who wants who to play.

Agree. Since the 2010 AFC title game I am hard pressed to think of more than a couple of moves this organization has made that worked out.

Wilkerson and Landry are all that jump out at me and Landry will likely get out of dodge as soon as FA season opens.

I saw Steven A. make a good point on ESPN today in that he felt Ryan and Tanny reaped the success of the foundation Mangini left behind and then got full of themselves with their reaches when it came to drafting, trades etc only to fail miserably.

Our GM should be an Accountant. Our HC should be a DC. Our OC had no resume deserving of beings hired here. Our QB coach inexplicably still has his job. Sanchez is beyond repair if there was ever anything worth coaching up to begin with. We label ourselves as being a Ground and Pound team yet have a mediocre RB.

The only bright spot to take from this season going forward is that Wilkerson looks like a player.

It all starts with the draft to build a team- we traded away picks to move up limiting our number of picks many years. Beside Wilkerson and Kerley with jury out on Hill and Coples we have a terrible record from Tanny last couple of years

So maybe with McElroy we get an 8-8 season.

Which on paper doesn't seem so awful.

How come it felt so awful?

if Rex deserves to be fired it's for not activating Greg and be willing to go to the bullpen again last night. After Mark's 2nd INT it's a feasible move. Rex probably regrets that non move. as others have asked, i wonder who really gets to decide who the QB of the Jets is play to play. I want to believe it's not the HC.

Hindsight is 20/20 bro. We needed like 8 receivers active and the plan was decided during the week that Tebow was getting the 3rd series regardless of what was happening in the game. It wasn't possible to waist a roster spot on an actual backup QB.

One of the options on the table is split duties between McElroy and Tebow on Sunday, per source.

I'd let each guy play a half. We need to see what they can do.

It's basically scouting your existing roster. We need to do something to pump value into Tebow, perhaps get a 6th rounder back for him.

Rex Ryan is a DC, not a HC. In Baltimore, he was a DC with a boss. Here he is a DC without a boss. Still a DC. Always will be.

I completely agree, unless there were background machinations we dont know about concerning Sanchez's status.

Improving our draft position by finishing 6-10 is considerably less awful than 8-8.

Rex asolutely deserves to be fired for that move. Next weeks starting QB was inactive in a game in which he would have relieved a horrific Sanchez.

A game in which one TD out of numerous oppurtunities would have left our play-off hopes still alive. I am sorry but you cannot give Rex a pass for such a bonehead decision.

Also allowing Sanchez to be pullled for Tebow the rare time that Sancheze had back to back completions for substantial gains and looked like just maybe he was getting it together was another head scratcher that even had Gruden asking WTF are they doing. You cannot imply that particuar decision came from Woody or Tanny and Rex as HC shoud have over ruled a clueless Soprano for calling for it.

Sanchez has become a bottom three QB in the league but moves like the one above escorted him there. Having the defense play dominant against three teams that would have lost 45-10 to 90% of the league should not buy Rex a reprieve. He is in over his head as a HC.

Why? No matter where they pick they'll figure out a way to screw it up. Like by taking another defensive player.

According to a source, Rex is leaning toward Greg McElroy on Sunday vs. Chargers. #nyj

Rumor had it he was leaning that way two weeks ago, too.

......turns out he just had to fart.

I think the biggest part of the problem is the lack of a boss. If he was working for a strong GM who had total control of football operations, Rex, in turn, would be in a better position to just coach.

If this team had an adequate QB, no one would be talking about Rex as a bad head coach. Middle of the road QB-ing would have this team in the playoffs four years in a row. The problem seems to be that the QBs suck, and Rex doesn't publicly chastise them.
