Greg McElroy accomplished more in one half than Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow did in three games.
Still, there's no quarterback controversy with the New York Jets.
McElroy became the first quarterback to lead the Jets into the end zone this preseason in a 28-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night.
The Jets (0-4) were the first team in 35 years to go three preseason games without a touchdown, matching the 1977 Atlanta Falcons for offensive futility.
McElroy ended that drought. His reward will be a seat on the bench.
''I'm glad we got it,'' Jets coach Rex Ryan said. ''I'm not going to sit here and say I wish we (hadn't scored). I would've liked to have saved it and tack it on next week.''
The Jets open against Buffalo on Sept. 9. The Eagles will play at Cleveland.
Sanchez, Tebow and most of the Jets starters didn't play in this battle between backups and guys fighting for roster spots.
Michael Vick and all of Philadelphia's starters watched from the sideline.
Trent Edwards threw for 197 yards and two TDs to help the Eagles (4-0) finish unbeaten in the preseason for the first time since 1995.
None of that will matter when the games count.
Hours before kickoff, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie stopped just short of issuing a win-or-else ultimatum to coach Andy Reid.
Lurie said the team must make a ''substantial improvement'' for Reid to return for his 15th season next year. He added another 8-8 record would be ''unacceptable.''
''I don't have a level or anything like that,'' Lurie said. ''I want to be clear about that. You try to make the best judgment you can after the season.''
Reid's contract runs through 2013.
