It will not be the Turnover Bowl.
It will not be return of Tebow Time in the AFC West.
That’s no fun.
After a disastrous performance by Mark Sanchez on Monday night, the Jets have announced McElroy, the No. 3 quarterback, will start against the Chargers on Sunday. We were hoping for sexier storylines.
Had Sanchez kept his job, it would be a battle of the two players who have committed the most turnovers in the NFL since the start of last season. Sanchez has 50 turnovers since then and San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers has 47.
This is Tebow’s only game against an AFC West opponent in his first season since being traded from Denver. Watching Tebow scurrying around the field against the Chargers would have brought back memories for everybody.
But instead, we get McElroy. Yep, this game has gotten even more meaningless.
