New York Jets
San Diego Chargers
One after another, the San Diego Chargers barreled into Greg McElroy and slammed him to the turf.
A whopping 11 times.
That's a lot of bruises for the New York Jets' new - and sore - starting quarterback.
Led by Kendall Reyes' 3 1/2 sacks, the Chargers made things downright miserable for McElroy, tying the team record for sacks in a 27-17 victory Sunday.
''You don't do anything different, but you know it is going to be tougher for him because of his lack of experience,'' Reyes said. ''You just want to get in his face.''
That's exactly what San Diego did as Norv Turner awarded game balls to each one of his players that took McElroy down - and he sure needed a bunch of them. Shaun Phillips had 2 1/2 sacks, Corey Liuget added two more, and four other players helped the Chargers (6-9) finish one short of the NFL record set by a handful of teams, last by the Giants in 2007.
''A lot of those sacks weren't where they bea...
BEST OF MAXIM
Jets quarterback Greg McElroy spent as much time on the ground as he did upright Sunday against the Chargers. New York's offensive line allowed a season-worst 11 sacks in the 27-17 loss.Fantasy Spin:McElroy may have been a slight improvement over Mark Sanchez but he certainly wasn't great on Sunday (14-for-24, 185 yards and an interception). Luckily he has a pretty favorable...
Rex Ryan might regret his decision of having Greg McElroy start. He didn’t play very well, and this attempt at a tackle was pretty much a microcosm of the game for the New York Jets. Might be time to clean house and start over for the Jets Organization.GIF via: Gifulmination.com
Jets "ridiculous" offensive line play gives team their ninth loss. Florham Park, N.J.: Quarterback Greg McElroy couldn't overcome poor offensive line play in his first career start in the NFL. The Jets offensive line gave up 11 (one shy of the NFL record) sacks in the 27-17 loss against the San Diego Chargers."It was great on their part, but ridiculous on our...
If it wasn’t bad enough for Tim Tebow who was overlooked by Rex Ryan for Greg McElroy, he also had to watch Jeremy Kerley play wildcat for the New York Jets.
Tebow, who is fully healty, had to watch as Kerley played in the Wildcat, took a direct snap and threw a 42-yard completion to Clyde Gates to set up the Jets’ first touchdown. With that one pass, Kerley eclipsed Tebow’s...
Norv Turner was in a generous mood, awarding game balls to each one of his San Diego Chargers who sacked Greg McElroy.
Hope he stocked up on footballs.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Norv Turner was in a generous mood, awarding game balls to each one of his San Diego Chargers who sacked Greg McElroy.

Was Sunday the official start of the Greg McElroy era in New York? Chances are the New York Jets will pursue another option at starting quarterback when the offseason begins, which means there is also a good chance Mark Sanchez may have taken his last snap with the team. Otherwise, it would probably cost you more than $10 for his Jets jersey.
As you can see from the photo above...
Much has been made about the Jets’ quarterback carousel over the past few weeks, but no amount of change under center will matter unless something changes along that offensive line.
Rex Ryan finally made the move away from Mark Sanchez last week, after a five-turnover debacle all but ended his stay in New York. The Jets decided to instead go with second-year quarterback Greg McElroy...
BY NICK ST. DENISThe New York Jets' drama play has come full circle, with quarterback Mark Sanchez getting benched for Greg McElroy following a five-turnover performance against the lowly Tennessee Titans that saw Gang Green get eliminated from playoff contention.The sensationalistic media has gotten everything they can out of a team that just wasn't very good to begin with...
It seems this guy might’ve had a skunked beer and an undercooked brat before Sunday’s Jets-Chargers game. Listen closely – one of the play-by-play crew members mentions it’s just the first quarter when Artie starts blowing projectile puke.
It’s not like Artie would be puking over the Jets play in the first.
The Jets had a 14-7 lead and even went to half at 14-10 over the...
San Diego Chargers (5-9) at New York Jets (6-8)
Ugh. How am I supposed to pick between these two teams? The Chargers have been incredibly inconsistent and the Jets are a mediocre at best team who has just been eliminated from the playoff race making a controversial move to start a former 7th round pick who has never made an NFL start. There’s a lot of conflicting stuff on both...
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Two teams mired in two forgettable seasons played a rather forgettable game as the San Diego Chargers beat the New York Jets 27-17 on Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium. For the Chargers (6-9), it was just their second win in their last seven games in a season that they started 3-1. A solid display by San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers, who was 11 for...
