I don't care how much time Maxwell had to sit and learn. I don't care about the dropped passes or the pass protection issues. This kid ain't gettin' the job done!
It would be a huge mistake to not have a second option at QB for next season. Make spring and fall an open competition. Can't put another entire season on the HOPES that one player improves.
Just let Damian Terry start from day 1.
35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
I'm assuming the two you're referring to are O'Connor and Terry?
For MSU not to put Cook in tells you how bad it is. Are there any JC QB's out there? I can't wait for Damian Terry but the level of play is not something for him to jump into first year. Not a lot of hope looking at next year with the stubborness and struggle all year with this staff. Feel for Dantonio- you gotta think he's just as torn.
Yep minus well let a Freshman with potential develop instead of playing a borderline mediocre Senior
he has not improved at all during the season. He sucks
Maxwell is the second coming of Todd Shultz.
I said in another thread that the QB competition should be wide open in the spring. Somebody has to emerge that can lead this team better than Maxwell. Doesn't have any of the intangibles needed to be a good QB.

The moment is eternal
Everyone said the same thing about Cousins his first year. Let the coaches do their job and as a fan just know that this is more personal to them then us.
Yes Maxwell has looked bad and there is going to be a QB competition this Spring... but there was already going to be a competition regardless. The best we can hope for is Maxwell to play his ass off or some young guy to step his game up.
I will say that his play has been bi-polar and very hard to gauge from a correctional standpoint... so Warner is probably getting ass cancer from coaching him.
Soufflé, I'm straight, I scrape my plate/,Sade, I'm a smooth operator... I DROP TOP MY WHIP!
Look, I try to be patient. But State is DOMINATING this game except for the QB position.
It really hurts the program if Maxwell does not succeed, but we are at the point where we have to look at other options. Like at the start of the second half.
Kirk Cousins had a completion percentage of 60.9 with 19 TD's and 9 INT's in his first year as a starter (all while splitting time for the first half of the season). Maxwell has a completion percentage of 53.3 with 13 TD's and 9 INT's. Let's not compare the two seasons if you're trying to give Maxwell some praise.
And watch him regress under this offensive coaching staff? No thanks.
They can't, as they are in over their heads in the big ten.
Not comparing the stats just the verbal feedback the fan base gave him. Yes Cousins was better on paper but we were all about the grass is greener.

He'll keep maxwell because he's has the most experience and there is too much on the line. I would rather see cook but md won't do it.
Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
Maxwell's completion would be a bit better if his receivers could actually catch the ball
Man, Maxwell has overthrown every deep ball by at least 5 yards, especially down the middle. Not even close!
Possibly. Not that it'll happen, but I'm just about ready to pull the plug on Maxwell.
Maxwell's % would also be better if he threw to open receivers and made checkdowns
I'm good with this.
I am just as big of a Terry guy as anyone else, but don't sleep on O'Connor
Actually, no. People were screaming for Dantonio to give the job to Cousins. You have no clue what you are talking about.
Comparing Maxwell to Cousins is an insult to CKC.
Last week he threw 2 perfect deep passes that were dropped by Burbridge at or near the goal line. Those 2 plays would have given us about another 80+ yards of passing, a 1st and goal or a TD, and of course, a win. There are several other TDs that have been dropped over the course of the year, and again, they'd have won us the game. At least 2 of the INTs resulted because the WRs can't catch.
It's easy to blame the QB, but the WRs didn't do Maxwell any favors. Neither has the OL.
Yup. Does anyone want to discuss the Burbridge regression? Probably not huh?
Couldn't possibly be the coaches now could it?
last game of the reg season,maxwell looks worse than he did in the first. leveon won the game.gotta change it up,sorry max.
Why would any QB, good or not, regress?
