The best QB last season after Hare was moved to WR (Maddie) and four years later and they still don't sound high on Graham.

I love this argument. The coaching staff gets dogged for not developing the bad players and gets no credit for developing the "elite talent" players. Yeah, okay. Disregard every other NIU All-MAC player that was recruited as a 2* player out of high school...those guys must have just had natural elite skills that they developed on their own.

As noted, the QB situation was definitely hurt by the Collins flaking/Ingold bailing. Also, Hare/Maddie would have been a lot more productive if they weren't injured constantly. You could say the same thing for Graham...I have no idea what he might have been without injuries+concussions but I'm sure they didn't help his development. Should they have had more behind him? Yeah. At the same time, people were excited about Santa, Childers AND Hall coming here. Injuries have absolutely decimated our QBs over the past 3 years.

Yes, but we were also blowing them out as well as beating BCS teams and other mid-majors. Now we lose to 3-win Boston College and 1-AA teams then get the doors blown off by USF, Boise, and Marshall. Teams we would have been more competitive against in the past.

All I'm saying is Carey hasn't done much to show he is worth keeping and his recruiting did not get better. These are all issues that developed under his watch. He was given a great gig and he's slowly driving it off a cliff.

Im pretty sure Carey would have to be video taped punching a player for people to disapprove of him on this board. I never thought our fanbase would be content with being a middle to lower end MAC team, it is pretty astounding. I wouldn't even feel so bad about the situation if not having to watch the ineptitude and circus act at quarterback. Sometimes you really really wonder if he is making an effort to get fired.

Just because we don't say Carey should be fired 20 times on every thread doesn't mean we're impressed with him or that we are content.

It will be good to have a running back in the backfield who is a threat to take it all the way on any carry.
I have missed that in the last few years.
