This young quarterback has got a lot to learn about what he can and cannot say following a season where he only played in the preseason.
Former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy decided to be the first to talk about what happened with the Jets in their final week of the 2011 season. Unfortunately for him, his choice of words were not the best.
Following the Jets loss to the Dolphins, ending their season at 8-8, McElroy said, "It's the first time I've ever been around extremely selfish individuals. I think that's maybe the nature of the NFL, but there were people within our locker room that didn't care whether we won or lost as long as they [...] had really had good games individually.
"I think the fact we struggled at times this year," he continued, "really led to [...] this corrupt mindset within the locker room."
He later tried to save himself by adding, "But I think we're going to re-group. I think we'll be a better team because of the trials and tribulations this year."
Sorry, Greg, but that final piece may not have been enough to save you.
The fact of the matter is that McElroy is very expendable after suffering from a thumb injury that kept him out during the 2011 season. Right now, the best-case scenario for the Jets if they put McElroy on the trade block would be a sixth- or seventh-round selection, which could end up being a great pick by the Jets.
