I guess we'd have to define "sucked". Lol. The only USC quarterback that I think has really underperformed or failed to meet expectations was/is Matt Leinart. (Although Sanchez looks to be headed there, I hold out some faint hope.) What other USC QB was supposed to be great, but sucked, instead?? Carson Palmer? I think Palmer has had a very nice career, and it would've been better had he not been injured.
The way some people talk it's as if USC has had numerous QBs taken in the 1st round only to see them quickly flame out. Like I said, other than Leinart and perhaps Sanchez, I can't think of many others. I can't think of ANY others.
Can't we say the same about Michigan QBs? Other than Brady, you've got a list that includes Harbaugh, Henne, Collins, Griese ... I don't know if these guys "sucked", but you won't find 'em on any HOF ballots. How 'bout Ohio St. QB's? Or even Miami? Kelly and Kosar, I guess, were the best. Testaverde, maybe. The others? Not so great. My point is, what I think this comes from is a lot of USC haters, not actual fact.
Pat Haden had a decent career, Rodney Peete got a lot out of marginal talent, Vince Evans played a long time ... again, HOF'ers by no means, but they didn't suck, either.
