Updated top 10 QBs in Clemson history (or since 1970):

1. DW4
2. Steve Fuller
3. Tajh Boyd
4. Woody Dantzler
5. Homer Jordan
6. Charlie Whitehurst
7. Rodney Williams
8. Nealon Greene
9. Chris Morocco
10. DeChane Cameron

Chris Morocco only got significant snaps one year, so

I don't know if I would put him in the top 10. But he was a good quarterback nonetheless.

Cullen Harper had really good sophomore and junior years.

Mike Eppley ran the option to perfection.

I would put one of those in the Top 10 ahead of DeChane Cameron.

All true. Thinking Eppley only played a year and a half


Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 12:25 PM
 

because of injury but should certainly be in there nonetheless. Also, Harper was very good until his last year. Cameron though also ran the option to perfection.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg


True but I think Eppley and Harper had better passing

Fuller at 6? Crazy.

He has to be at least top 3. If you are going by simply stats then you don't get it. He played in a tougher ACC with fewer games, more huddles and run oriented offenses.

Yep. At least closer than the original 10.

Fuller, for all his greatness, did not win a title. Homer and DW4 did. And Tajh won the ACC and a big bowl game in the modern era.

People put far too much stock into beating mediocre #### teams for Whitehurst and seem to undersell Tajh Boyd's records (that still stand even after DW4). I know different offenses and different weapons, but Charlie had a #### poor season in 2004 only completing 50% of passes and throwing just 7 TDs to 17 INTs, Tajh on the other hand was an all-acc selection every season he started and POY his Jr. season.

in 09, 10, 11, 12, and 13 also probably.

Yes putting a less mobile QB behind an OL that was getting destroyed would have equaled better results....

Do you forget what a great runner TB was. Think about

the Orange Bowl in 2013 and against UGA that year.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg


so you think he would have done better in 04?***


Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 1:25 PM
 




It would have been hard to do better than 29-7.


Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 1:30 PM
 

He would have done better in 2005 when we only scored 13 against a not very good coot team.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg


so that's a NO on 04?***


Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 1:32 PM
 




Yep, a no. But Charlie would have lost to LSU in 2012


Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 2:06 PM
 

and UGA and Ohio State in 2013.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg


why would he have lost to UGA OR OSU? That's like saying TB


Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 2:07 PM
 

would have lost to UT in 03


Because without TB's running ability, we lose those games.***

2010 was also his freshmen year, 2004 was Whitehurst's Jr. year. There's no excuse for a Jr. who at least started a year prior to only throw 7 TDs and 17 INTs in 11 games. In contrast Tajh as a Jr. was ACC POY and a all-american.

HONESTLY think TB wins ACC POY throwing the ball to Kelvin Grant and the cast of players CW had in 04?


My Thoughts on a Top Ten

1. DW4
2. Tajh Boyd
3. Steve Fuller
4. Rodney Williams
5. Homer Jordan
6. Woody Dantzler
7. Charlie Whitehurst
8. Kyle Parker (before the Auburn game)
9. Chris Morocco
10. Mike Eppley


I can't see Whitehurst over Boyd or Woody. Boyd never

Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 12:31 PM
 

beat the Coots but did beat LSU, Ohio State, and UGA.

Whitehurst beat the Coots four straight and beat UT for perhaps his biggest win as far as opponent.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg


CW was the first and until this year the only QB to beat


Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 12:50 PM
 

FSU twice...At the time, the 03 FSU team was our highest ranked W...Watson also beat the Noles twice and also beat the 1,2,3,and 4th ranked teams at some point in his career,He's firmly at 1...And CW is firmly at 3...Love Woody to DEATH, but he's not better than CW...not at playing QB


Agree. I gave Whitehurst the nod because he did what he did


Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 12:50 PM
 

without Watkins, Nuk, etc. But If you reversed that, can't argue with you. Maybe it is Watson and Fuller, then a tossup between Whitehurst and Boyd. But Dantzler, oh man....

If it's a toss-up(which it shouldn't be), 6-1 VS our biggest

rivals (SCU and FSU) should tip the scales in Big Shooter's favor


He had Derrick Hamilton and Kevin Youngblood for 2 years,


Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 1:16 PM
 

Airese Curry for 3, and JJ McKelvey was still around in 2002 with those other guys. No it wasn't Sammy and Nuk, but those guys weren't exactly chopped liver. I think the one year we had a down WR corp was 2004 and Whitehurst had a horrible season that year.

2020 white level member

are you REALLY trying to compare the offensive talent? Which


Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 1:24 PM
 

one of those WRs would start in 11,12,13? MAYBE DHam? Did Charlie ever play with a RB like Ellington? The best he got was a half a season with JD running a ROB SPENCE offense


But the gap in production is MASSIVE. This isn't a close

Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 2:03 PM
 

race that is being decided by who played with better talent. This is a chasm you are trying to bridge here.

2020 white level member

Agree. The Ring of Honor guy with the retired jersey has to

[1]
Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 12:45 PM
 

be in the top two until there are three qb's in the Ring. Watson will be there, so we can put him in the top two. Whitehurst never played on a team like Watson and Fuller had, and was an amazing player. So yeah, those have to be the top three, I think. Dantzler was the most electric player we ever had at that spot, and there is no telling how many games we won simply because we had him and the other team didnt, so I might put him at four. But I agree that the rest are matters of opinion, all were very, very good.

Heck, Williams had a knack for doing the right thing over and over and over again, as good as Watson was at that, I think. Didn't have Watson's skills, of course, but the guy could lead an offense and find a way to score.

2020 white level member

I think Whitehurst gets overrated pretty often.

[1]
Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 1:13 PM
 

He had 49 TDs and 46 INTs for his career. 7.1 YPA.

Boyd had 107 TDs and 39 INTs with 8.5 YPA. I know it was a different era and all, but i still can't imagine putting Whitehurst ahead of Boyd.

Basically he beat a bunch of bad to mediocre Coot teams whereas Tajh lost to a few extremely good Coot teams. That;s the only argument i can see for Whitehurst and not one that i put a great deal of stock in. IMO Tajh could've just easily gone 4-0 against those Coot teams and Charlie could've gone 0-3 against the 11-2 Coot teams.

2020 white level member

Tajh easily over Charlie because of his toughness and

running ability.

I watched him play as a kid. I will give him credit for being the first QB to usher Clemson into semi-national prominence. His '77 and '78 years kickstarted our program.


4 of those guys you have above Fuller never made an NFL

Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 1:24 PM
 

team. Fuller ran the triple-option - his ability to throw it on the run made teams respect it. He could run it if he had to. Those 2 things made the pitch work infinitely better...

You gotta move him higher. ;)

Posted: Jan 30, 2017, 1:11 PM
 

so flawlessly, threw a great ball while rolling out, and led us to a NC and then a 9-1-1 mark in 1982. Plus, Woody was the first college player ever to run for a 1,000 and pass for 2,000. Whitehurst was more of a traditional drop back passer and more of an NFL prospect for sure. I think I'd pick those two by a hair as college QBs over Charlie though.

4. Woody
5. Whitehurst
6. Tajh
7. Williams
8. Streeter
9. Greene
10. Cameron

Tajh gets bumped down for two reasons. #1 is 0-4 (yes, those USuCk teams were good...so were those Clemson teams). #2 is playing with four NFL WRs vs. one or zero for most of these guys.
