With all the worry and hand wringing over how a first year starter working behind an inexperienced offensive line would fare against a veteran defense like Bud Foster's, Greg McElroy didn't do a whole lot to allay our fears in the early going. Though he wound up a with a reasonably decent stat line...

  COMP ATT % Yards AVG. TD INT
Greg McElroy
15 30 50 230 7.7 1 1

 

...his first half numbers were, to put it gently, horrible...

  COMP ATT % Yards AVG. TD INT
First Half 6 18 33 94 5.2 0
1

 

...while the second half was a completely different story:

  COMP ATT % Yards AVG. TD INT
Second Half 9 12 75 136 11.3 1
0

Fingers crossed that we can expect McElroy to play the rest of the season like he did in the second half after he got his feet under him a little. If he can do that, this kid can be something special.
