    Andy Kelly was the first Tennessee QB I really remember so I’m always partial to him even though he doesn’t make the top 5.

    Heath Schuler came along when I really started to understand what was going on.

    They came Peyton during high school. And of course Tee right after that.

    So those are my favorites, which doesn’t answer the question but it’s where I stand.

    Manning, Clausen, Shuler, Dobbs, T-Rob

    you youngsters never saw t-rob throw those rainbows. His Sr year was on an interesting trajectory until Cornelius Bennett took him out. Very similar story as Chuck Webb. What might have been.

    Casey Clausen might be the most under-appreciated player in Tennessee football history looking back on it.

    Top 5 in no particular order:

    Honorable mention to Kelly and Dobbs.

    I agree, at the time I was still in Manning mode but Clausen was a great college QB

    It's not heresy.

    He was a good, competent QB who played his part on a completely loaded national championship team.

    He had his good moments, especially the 23 straight completion game, but he largely never took a game over like Manning, Robinson, etc. did.

    One thing Tee did was always pull something out at an opportune time even in games in which he wasn’t particularly good

    1997 was just as loaded. 96 was pretty loaded too. Manning couldn’t beat Florida or win when it mattered most. Tee did. That’s what matters to me.

    To be fair, I dont think Tee had to beat Florida with us giving up 50-60 pts. We gave up 17 in '98. Peyton goes 3-1 vs UF if we only give up 17 with only loss being freshman year

    Only gave up 60+ once. 31, 62, 35, 33. All of which were lower than Florida’s season averages except for the 62.

    Probably would’ve helped if he hadn’t thrown 4 interceptions, 2 at the goal line, his junior year. At home. In the first half.

    Don't let Peyton sling it around against UF and he's 3-1 against them.

    Very true. But again we only had to score 20 the one time Tee played them. I still have Tee in top 5 due to the Natty and him being smart enough on the field to let our nasty D take over. Cut was trying to win Peyton the Heisman
