Childers throws a nice deep ball but the conditions were really tough and they barely missed on 3 deep balls. Little more practice and timing should help.

He signed with Memphis in 2015 while Justin Fuente was building a juggernaut there so it would appear that he has some talent. He has progressed to the point that the coaches have confidence that he can give the team a chance to win a game but that goes against the belief of some on this board that the coaches are trying to find ways to undermine this team.

Hugh? I have seen many times (including by me) a lack of faith in the personnel decision making, but I have never gotten the sense anyone here believes the coaches are trying to undermine the team.

Their faith in Graham and unwillingness to play Huff really had me wondering at times... It was really frustrating.

Santacaterina gives you the deep threat, a good running back combined with deep passing is a serviceable offense. With our defense that's all we should need.

The issue with a 2 QB system is that neither develops at the pace they could if they were really "the guy". Childers needs reps. If he gets them he may be able to develop his passing game. Santa has an upside if he can improve his decision making; you get that by playing, they call that experience.
They are not running Santa because they are protecting him. He showed he could run last year. Childers gives you that dimension.
The players that benefit most from Santa's deep ball is Blake and Huff; neither were effective today. His deep ball accuracy has been absolutely amazing. Could the WR caught some of Cihilders passes today...maybe; but it highlights the in-stride dimes that Santa has been throwing. I get the feeling Carey prefers the running QB ability over the big play, but inconsistent Santa. This is a tough call.

You don’t think the heavy rain had anything to do that as well?? I mean come on, it was obvious any team is going to run in that weather regardless who your QB is

For playing in a hurricane, I thought Childers was great, definitely could see the instant difference when he came in

RE: Marcus Childers - is he the guy?
Both guys, probably from lack of experience, struggle to read defenses

Both guys today threw terrible interceptions, the Santa pick was in to double coverage and the wheel was WIDE open, Childers threw a pick on the same route and ignored the flat which was WIDE open, both guys left points on the field

I prefer Childers because of the zone read, he has much more potential in that style

We're in a tricky spot at QB right now

This is why, summer camp needs to be used for evaluating the position. Ive never ever liked extending summer camp into the first 6 to 8 weeks of the season. Much of this tricky spot is self inflicted wound. My guess is that Carey wont make a decision on anything and will continue the musical chairs. He has trouble making these decisions.

RE: Marcus Childers - is he the guy?
No No No...he is NOT the guy! It's obvious now, ANTHONY THOMPSON is the guy to take the team to the next level!
Think like this: Graham down, next man up, Santa. Santa's an INT machine, next man in, Childers. Childers will quickly show a weakness, so we go to #4. :)

Seriously, we have 3 guys who have shown enuf skills to win games. Might be none shine brighter than the other but we now have good depth at QB and they are mostly healthy after 5 games. I will predict each QB will win us a game this year. Now, we need some of the RBs and WRs to take over a game or 2 and win it with a minor QB contribution.

I'm good with the QB situation, enjoy this ride, it'll sort itself out with more wins than losses.

This is a tough call, and I am OK with going with either Santa or Childers. I would not be OK with Graham starting.

Childers played much, much better than Santa today. Santa would have won today's game as well but he would not have played as well as Childers. You go with performance until the kid doesn't perform...
