    I mailed him a question about Jason Carter. Thanks for that Singer. Good piece. I wonder how often that is going to released.

    I've posted them before. It seems they do it about once a month.

    The last one was May 18th, I don't think there is much of a schedule but they are more common now as things heat up.
    COJO don't get your hopes up.
    If your question was somewhat decent there is a small chance of him actually answering it, I just got a short e-mail answer from him.

    Wobschall: Sharper and Smith will be the presumed starters heading into training camp
    If Wobschall is right and Smith starts I would be eating a lot of crow. Interesting input.


    Where are our young quarterbacks going to get their mentoring? We have no veteran quarterback to help them.
    --KLA, Las Cruces

    Wobschall: Quarterbacks, especially young ones, receive their mentoring from the quarterbacks coach and, in the Vikings case, the head coach. Both Head Coach Brad Childress and quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers have extensive experience and impressive track records in working with young quarterbacks. Childress worked closely with Donovan McNabb as he blossomed into an NFL star with the Eagles and Rogers worked with McNabb when he was at Syracuse.
    Alot of people forget about Chili's extensive knowledge of QB.

    Childress briefly played quarterback and wide receiver at Illinois
    Childress got his first taste of NFL coaching in 1985 when he served as the quarterbacks coach for the Indianapolis Colts.
    and of course developing McNabb while with the Eagles.

    Childress

    I don't know if a lot of people have forgotten.
    I think it's more a lack of confidence in the guy.
    He was the OC for a very prolific team, yet he didn't call the plays.

    My hope is enough rubbed off on him from REID, that he can duplicate the success.
    I don't see BC as a trend setter, or a mastermind.
    Obviously I want to see success, but right now I'm not convinced.

    How much of the success of MCNABB was because of MCNABB, and how much was because of BC.
    I don't call him a guru because he trained 1 All-Pro QB!

    Not trying to slam on Childress or anything, but everybody keeps calling him a QB guru. Don't you have to develop more than one good QB to get 'guru' status? Aside from McNabb, what other QB has Childress gotten to a Pro Bowl, or other benchmark warranting kudos to the coach?

    I've been saying that all along. He coached Mike McMahon as well.

    Nuff said.

    I also am of the ilk that believe coaches coach and players play after being coached by the coaches, not after being coached by the aging veteran player.

    Additionally, I could be labeled as a homer for this however, Rodgers is awesome

    ;D
    Big loss to the Hokey Nation when he left.
    Great find/pickup for the Vikes and our young QB's.

    I also sometimes wonder if he and not B-chill had the greatest impact on McNabbs development.

    Rogers is no stranger to the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Brooklyn, N.Y., native is a 1974 graduate of the College of William & Mary and began his coaching career as an assistant coach at Bayside High School in Virginia Beach from 1974-76. At William & Mary, he was a three-year letterman as a linebacker and earned a degree in physical education. He earned a master's in physical education from Ohio State in 1978.

    So why haven't any of the other QB's Childress mentored done anything? I.E. Mike McMahon.

    The only one ever mentioned is McNabb. That's just one QB. Could the same thing be said about Peyton Mannings coach?

    What other successful QB has Rodgers coached? I'm not into college football that much.

    Personally I think their success with McNabb had a lot to do with him being a gifted athelete & they just tweaked & refined him.

    When you start with a piece of shit, no matter how you mold it, it's still a piece of shit.

    When you start with a piece of pooh, no matter how you mold it, it's still a piece of pooh.
    So what are you trying to say?
    That the QB coach has nothing to do with the development of the QB?

    :
    There are alot of QB coaches out there in the NFL today that can't use a name like McNabb on thier resume and they are still coaching.

    Focus back onto Rodgers.......

    27 years of coaching.
    Granted it was at the college level but still pretty impressive stuff in the 2 articles I gave.

    My assesment from watching the Hokies is that he appears he gets the most he can out of the talent he is given.
    Hopefully, as one of the articles mentions, he will suceed at the next level


    Kindof along the lines of ......
    If given better poo to work with he will hopefully turn them into better turds under his guidance at the next level.
    ;D

    Under Rogers' watchful eye, Tech quarterback Bryan Randall became the Hokies' all-time leader in passing yards, touchdown passes and total offense. In 2004, Randall was named the Player of the Year in the Atlantic Coast Conference, as well as the league's top offensive player.
    In 1999, Rogers coached a Notre Dame offense that broke the school single-season record for total passing yards, completions and attempts.
