Don’t forget about McElroy: As we look around the league the first three weeks and pick out the most impressive performers, Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy is right there at the top of my list. He’s been much better than I thought he would be at this point after not playing any meaningful snaps in college until this season, and he can make any throw. His passes are always on time, right where the receiver likes them, and he has great touch on the deep ball. He admits that he was a little shaky to start that game against Virginia Tech to open the season, and that’s understandable. But once he got rolling in that fourth quarter, he’s been as good as any quarterback in the league. In his last nine quarters, starting with the fourth quarter against Virginia Tech, McElroy is 44-of-57 for 502 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. He’s spreading the ball around, using his running backs and the tight end and hasn’t really had the benefit yet of throwing to Julio Jones, who’s been slowed by a bruised kneecap. All in all, just a terrific start for the guy who threw 56 touchdown passes as a high school senior. What we learned in the SEC: Week 3 - ESPN emphasis mine
