    SoCal QBs - A steady stream of mediocrity

    Can't think of one who has been a success in the NFL. The best one to come out of there in the last 30 years is Rodney Peete. Carson Palmer had one solid season and then became a mediocre QB and then you have steaming piles of dung in Sanchez, Leinart, David Booty, Cassel, Robo QB, etc. etc.
