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

It stopped raining very early in the 2nd half! What about the rest of the half? And I don't think the rain would explain overthrowing receivers.

And Santa ONLY played when there was both rain and wind, so not really a fair comparison. NIU won today because they were playing Kent State with their 3rd string QB. Childers is more mobile than the other QBs but we won't get very far unless opposing defenses respect our passing attack too. They really didn't have to today.

It rained for 3 quarters and the wind was 20 to 30 mph from the south. Tough passing conditions. Certain things will be harder to evaluate than others.

The defensive teams both played the run all day.

Punters over-kicked into the north endzone all day.

Hard to make a call on Childers ability today.

What you can see is Santa making another dumb pass into double coverage. Then I think Childers did the same late.

Yes Childers seems to be the best runner of the 3 and I'm surprised at Santa's lack of production running. Maybe it is just me as I need to see stats or rewatch game.

If Santa would stop making dumb interceptions it woulf be his job. But he is not consistent enough.

In my mind it is why Graham was named starter for game 1. He limits the bad plays which could kill a 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.

What would you call it when several people who are not at every practice and meeting feel that they have a better idea as to who should play and that the coaches are holding back this team?

Santa does seem slower this year running the ball than he did last year.

Making the right/wrong decisions on personnel and playing time is a judgment call. Suggesting that any coach is intentionally undermining the team remains ridiculous.

If Childers gets the job and keeps it, not only would it be one of the quickest hooks of all time, Santa will go down as one of the most successful (and productive) QB's to ever lose a job.
I got to beleve that Carey will play who ever thinks gives his team the best chance to win. Today that was Childers.

Because this staff played Graham ahead of Maddie last year. Because they played Graham ahead of Santa this year. Because they refused to play Huff last year and the first two games this year. Very questionable.

On the same token I should give the staff credit for keeping Childers engaged and giving him valuable snaps that allowed him to develop poise and feel for the game to lead him to today's success.

RE: Marcus Childers - is he the guy?
Buddy who knew of Santa at Geneva HS believes this is what u get. Players like him and rally on him, but his skills are abit limited and mistakes come with the package. He is not a guy to carry the team consistently. Seems like we are seeing a repeat of his HS career.

I'd love to hear how Graham and Childers were perceived in HS. anyone?

The coaches didn't help him but you can't throw 4 picks in 5 quarters... And think that your job is secure. Of course he should have only throw 2 picks if the coaches managed him better.
