    Thank you Denard Robinson and ESPN for providing the motivation for this thread.

    My submission - Joe Montana in the 1979 Cotton Bowl.

    Watch the game the next time ESPN Classic shows it. That game wan't Montana leading a comeback. It was Houston handing it to them.

    Denard is exciting, but people seem to be forgetting he completed under half of his passes.

    I am with you guys on DR. He's fun to watch, but his receivers were bailing him out of dumb throws all game. Those three picks were not flukes, but a couple of those touchdowns were.

    He would be a flag football superstar.

    I'm glad he bought Michigan back, but it really looks like all his throws are high and soft.

    Denard Robinson's performance in that game was just stupid. If I were a Michigan fan I would be throwing up at our "throw it up in case a good guy catches it" offense. His last drive was actually OK. But, I was rather underwhelmed...

    Crompton had 2. LSU as a sophomore and Western Kentucky.

    Denard comes from a long line of QBs like Seneca Wallace, Antwan Randel-el, Jared Lorenzen, etc. who have a unique skill set that makes them fun to watch, but it is way more style over substance.

    In DR's case, he is a rb who can throw a little. I don't think anyone expects him to complete 70% of his passes in west coast offense. He throws to keep the D honest and loading the box all game. He's basically Pat White.

    True, White was certainly a more competent passer.

    I'd nominate every pro season of Michael Vick's.
