He played really well tonight and hit every throw he needed to....but Ive seen better hands on people without arms. His team and his WR's really let him down tonight

Good game USC and ND

He probably has, but he still played well enough to win....his WR's need to learn to catch a football in big games. How many drops did they have tonight? Id be willing to bet its more than 7

it seemed like his Wide recivers were scared to take a hit on a couple of those plays

Notre Dame's receivers reminded me a lot of CC, McMike and Hagan....dropping a lot of easy catches. :rolleyes:

I thought the WR let Quinn down, but he has definitely had better games. He played pretty well though, and his long run was nice lol

Well you also gotta take into account that this was probally the best or second best defense he faced all year, so of course he has had better games against the smaller schools he played.

His stats should look a lot nicer than they do though I'll tell you that.

i think he forced a lot of passes and really didn't look that great overall. his deep passes especially...

I agree. He definitely didnt do anything to cost us this game and he played his heart out. He could have played better but that's life. With out Quinn we're a 7 or 8 win team at best and arent even considered for a BCS bid. He was a great player for ND and I'll miss watching him on Saturdays that's for sure.

i am not 100 percent sold on quinn being a franchise qb in the NFL yet, but i think with time learning like palmer did he could be a good qb

Quinn honestly is too hyped up. When he plays against good defense he loses composure. I saw about 8 balls overthrown badly against USC. He threw for alot of yards is because ND didnt run the ball. What I do like is Quinn pocket presence.

He wasn't awful but he wasn't good enough to win. The 60 yard run was impressive but I was more impressed with the USC defense. Weis got alot of love last year and has done a great job this year but IMO Pete Carroll has not gotten the respect he deserves for being a great coach.

He was 9-27 at the end of the half. Rough start thats for sure.

It doesn't matter how Quinn played tonight, Notre Dame's defense gave them no shot to win. Notre Dame's D has been suspect all season and a lot of teams exposed it this year. It's just they were good enough to out-score a lot of opponents so no one really brought light to the issue!

Its not like Quinn played fantastic.. to bad they played so-so teams. You put them in a big game and they will stuggle its fact.

I don't know where you got that I said he played fantastic. My point was that it didn't matter how he played, their D gave them no chance to win. When you score 24 points and lose by 20, there's a problem with your defense!

This game may very well have dropped Quinn down in contention for the Heisman. I hope not. The kid is champion and played tough against a very good USC defense.

Troy Smith already etched his name on the heisman. John David Booty deserves the heisman more then Quinn.

Quinn's supremely overrated. If he played for anyone but Notre Dame, he wouldn't even be in the conversation.

I love it that Notre Dame is always overrated. Every year they get exposed in their bowl game. I think they've lost their last 6 or 7 in a row. All because they are overrated during the season, and they match up against a quality team and get SMOKED!

They haven't won a bowl game since 1993!!! http://www.uhnd.com/history/bowl-history.php

You think he played consistently all game? Are you kidding me? He was 9-27 at the end of the first half. Man to many people are blinded by the hype.

You're so right. 37 Tds total, 5 ints almost 3300 passing yards with a 65% completion percentage is all hype. He'd never be talked about if he put those numbers up at USC or OSU or a Florida school :shakeno:

Where did he say that in the post you quoted? Some people are just so blinded by hate :shakeno:

I thought he said that my mistake. Quinn can pass on decent teams but when it comes to the big game he folds. I guess I'm wrong on that huh?

Yes you are, completely wrong...again in fact. He didnt fold last night he fought hard against a better team with his WR dropping 5+ passes. He had 3 TDs and no turnovers. Man he is horrible :rolleyes: He didnt fold last time we played USC and put us in a position to win, defense cost us the game again. That isnt his fault. You have a HUGE problem with realizing that football isnt about 1 person, the team has an affect on the game. The only big game he played poorly in over the last two years was the UM game.

John David @$$ benifits from great recievers, great O-line and an outstanding defense to bale him outa stupid mistakes.

Brady Quinn does have good receivers but other than Jeff S.(I dont even wanna try) his recievers are nothing special but can still get the job done, Quinn also does not have a defense at ALL to help him when he makes mistakes.

Quinn > J.D Booty

He got off a slow start. I'll bring up the 9-27 in the first half stat one more time. Couldnt do anything when USC turned the ball over. Until then until the Irish win a big game Quinn will only be remembered as the pretty boy.

No, he'll be remembered as the player who set almost every passing record at ND and has led his team to two of the best back-to-back season in over a decade.

You can use that 9-27 stat all you'd like. But it's hard to get an offense in rythm and move the ball when everytime you have a 3rd or 4th down Rhema drops the pass to keep the chains moving or your RB who hasnt done anything all day fumbles in the redzone. I'm not sure how him getting off to a slow start means he folded though.

You just can't be a top team w/o a good defense.
