Crimson Tide fans, this one is a simple question with associated poll: did Greg McElroy help his NFL prospects today with his performance against the Houston Texans? Yes, I know it is a preseason game, and is therefore not a completely accurate test of his NFL future, but it's all we have to go on at this point.
As near as I can tell, Greg's stats went something like this (and please correct me if/when I'm wrong):
|23 completions on 39 attempts,||208 passing yards,||1 passing touchdown,||0 interceptions.|
It appears that he also had 4 carries for 24 yards, with a long of 10. SI's stats would seem to not count sacks as rushing attempts, because I think he was sacked 7 times for a loss of 41 yards (maybe some of those sacks weren't him, but a lot of them were). It also looks like he fumbled 3 times, recovered 1 himself, another recovered by the offense, and 1 that was a turnover.
So, here's the question: did his performance help him or hurt him?
