    Carr had better statistics, Vince obviously had the better team and won a NC, so it depends on how you asking the question.

    Really? Well maybe not more than College Hall of Fame and Pro Football Hall of Fame--almost accomplishing nothing (no bowl games) and narrowly averting no SB's with the addition of a running game. Guess who?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Elway

    These kinds of debates go nowhere because nobody agrees on the standards and usually adopts a standard to achieve a desired result.

    That's right and I am now convinced that Carr is the next Elway. :ok:

    Thanks for that, swtbound. :tease:

    I agree. I think Bosworth is in the College Hall of Fame also

    also after looking at it... they have like 10,000 people in the College HOF. So pretty much if you got your named called more then once by the announcer on the loudspeakers, you get a ticket to the College Hall of Fame.

    I had never heard of Carr until the summer before his senior year . Vince I knew about when he was in High School . Carr had a monster senior year while Vince had two good years and two great bowl games . I figure Vince got his team to the Rose Bowl twice and dominated both games so I give the who's the best QB award to Vince .

    John Elway was the best QB prospect that I have seen , so Carr and VY don't play in his league . Having said that , Elway struggled his first couple of years with Denver so I don't care how good Vince looks in camp ... he can't carry a team for 16 games as a rookie .

    There was a debate with this in the other thread and now it has it's own thread :francis:

    But Carr definately had a better college career. A championship says the team whole team got it done, not just one particular player.

    Carr, without a doubt. He did so much his Senior year that I was not surprised he took 1st rank in his draft.

    You make me laugh bro, strap it up before you make comments like that.

    Guy shattered every record Fresno ever had, on the field and in the weight room............You never saw a game so you cant really say he accomplished nothing.
    Yea he did nothing besides get drafted #1..................

    That was only 2 years worth..........I doubt that is nothing.............O and do you know who holds the record for the most recieving yards for a WR in a bowl game? Rodney Wright Fresno State 299 yards..........Carr threw for 531 yards.............

    He did all that with only 29 yards rushing for the team. When the Defense knew he was throwing the ball.

    Your deffinition of nothing is scary.

    Wow!!!! Carr led his team to a loss against a 7-5 (32nd ranked) Michigan State team. And that's the highlight of his college career???

    This is priceless. So throwing for 521 yds and 4 TD's is not doing his part?--it isn't a great game from the QB because his team couldn't rush or play D? Y'all are drawing way too narrow a line and one obviously chosen to pick a certain person. But for Michael Huff stopping White, by this standard VY's Rose Bowl performance would have been worthless. That's silly--VY's game was epic either way.
