RE: Aztec Game Thoughts
Glad someone reminded me on Childers, I'm fine with coming in 2-3 times a game for some wildcat action...but did you see those throws?!?!! oh my goodness, ducks. dying ducks. Made me realize we are sunk if Graham and Santa both go down. Anyone that thought he should have won the battle this year must not have seen him throw. Hopefully it's something he can develop.

Before the spring game Childers wasn't even mentioned. Had a good spring game to get in the conversation. Then in August it turned into a 2 QB race. He is a very good runner.

If you remember Lynch's sophomore year he threw sparingly but ran well. Nobody knew if he could throw enough to be competitive in his junior year. He did and the rest is history.

This is why I don't mind seeing Childers come in from time to time to get a bit of experience and learn and grow. Challenges the defense in different ways. I expect to see 2 or 3 QBs on Saturday.

I'll keep saying that QB is the hardest position to play and you get better by doing.

I only remember one throw for Childers and that was well short of the WR but not any worse than a few I've seen Graham and Santa throw. I'm hoping we can get a big lead against Kent so he can get some more reps in games.

RE: Aztec Game Thoughts
he had 2 throws into the ground. Maybe the play wasn't there, but they were horrible throws. I can understand one or 2 times a game to take the running pressure off of Santa, but they need to do a better job of play selection for him in the passing game if they are going to have him throw.

Yes, he also reminded me of Lynch a little when he was a RS Soph.

I must have missed the bad punt in the SDSU game. I remember him booming a couple of great punts in the game. # inside the 20 of SDSU.

I believe those were Childers first throws in a game. I'll wait to see a little more before I make any judgments on him. And he does run the ball pretty well so it's nice to give Santa a breather here and there.

RE: Aztec Game Thoughts
It seems to me that Childers is a run option to keep Santa injury free. It's a planned process and it gives Childers some game action ala Harnish/Lynch, even though Marcus hasn't reeled off one of Jordans 80 yard bursts yet.
