Analysis: What a motley cast of offensive characters. Consider: The players leading their respective positions began the season as backups -- in McElroy's case, third string. ... Press-box stats say McElroy was hit 16 times. That means he was hit by an opposing player once every 3.6 plays. ... Kerley ran four plays in the Wildcat, plus a play that was nullified by penalty. ... Greene also ran one play out of the Wildcat. ... Conspicuously missing, of course, is Tim Tebow, who spent the day modeling his uniform on the sideline.
