Penn State has played against many talented Quarterbacks. From memory, the cream of the crop reads as follows, in no particular order, with W/L record vs. PSU and my brief recollection of highlights.
Dan Marino (1-2), lots of INTs. One lucky win. Most over-rated QB until Brett Favre.
Major Harris(1-3) Outstanding talent. West Va actually beat PSU one ear when he was qb.
Doug Flutie (1-3) Got a win as a Senior.
Vinny Testaverde (0-1) Lots of INTs
Tom Brady (1-0) Beat PSU at Beaver Stadium after trailing by 14 in 4th Quarter.
Kyle Orton (0-2)- No real recollection of anything he did.
Drew Brees(0-3) See Kyle Orton.
Mark Sanchez (1-0) Single-handedly beat PSU in Rose Bowl.
There are probably errors in the records I am showing, from memory, and there are probably a couple of good ones that I have left off this list.
Of all of the above, Mark Sanchez laid the biggest beating on PSU . In my opinion, that game was won because Sanchez totally put a superior PSU D-Line out of the picture by getting rid of the ball in 2 seconds or less, each time picking the best receiver to throw to in PSU's soft coverage scheme. An absolutely flawless performance.
I am asking if he is not the best college quarterback that PSU has faced.
What do you think.
If not Sanchez, then what impressed you about the performance against PSU for your choice?
