McElroy makes Jets starting debut vs. Chargers and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: A game without playoff implications got a lot spicier when New York Jets coach Rex Ryan named second-year pro Greg McElroy the starting quarterback over Mark Sanchez. In a flash, we had a reason to watch Gang Green against a San Diego Chargers team that's lazily playing out the string for lame duck coach Norv Turner. The Jets have guaranteed Mark Sanchez more than $8 million for next season, but two strong games from McElroy could make them think twice about who their starter is. In fact, McElroy's performance could go a long way in deciding the Jets' health at this all-important position. If there is one reason to watch this woeful game, that's it.
