Pac 10 QBS

This post was brought up by a conversation today on the Valenti and Foster Show about Carson Palmer as a Quarterback. He was referred to as a "stud" quarterback and while I will not argue that he is indeed an above average quarterback in the league, I think stud should be reserved for people who win playoff games. While much of the burden falls on the rest of his team sucking, you gotta win when it matters to be a "stud". That being said, this got me thinking about Pac 10 quarterbacks in the playoffs and a whole. I couldn't think off the top of my head of the last won to win a game in the playoffs. After a bit of research it turns out that the last playoff win by a Pac 10 QB came from Jake Plummer in 2005. For as many top picks as the Pac 10 produces at that position, this is shocking. Just think about that when you hear people talking about how much better Sanchez is then Stafford. I feel bad for whoever drafts Sanchez because they are going to waste a lot of money and a lot of time on a bust.
