I'm not sure about that. The group I was around, myself included, weren't big Kordell fans past his first season as starter when there was excitement over what his legs could bring to the position. But his accuracy was just never there in any consistent manner. The team would have had to remake the offense around him, and no one I remember being around at the time was calling for that. The vitriol was more over why they weren't finding someone better to replace him (the Miller, Tomcak, Graham, etc. experiments all fell flat), but at the time the team's success was still predicated on strong running game and defense, so most of the resources went to maintaining those areas.
