NGT: Cotton Bowl QB history

dpinzow : 12/5/2017 2:59 pm
Lots of quarterbacks who played in the Cotton Bowl have gone on to NFL greatness. More than any other, this bowl is historically a quarterback's game

Sammy Baugh
YA Tittle
Norm Van Brocklin
Babe Parilli (AFL)
Bart Starr
Roger Staubach
Joe Theismann
Joe Montana
Dan Marino
Doug Flutie
Troy Aikman
Eli Manning

Possible future greatness for Darnold? He's got some attributes of those guys, even though he's a little less polished as a pro prospect.

There have also been a few Cotton Bowl QBs who became NFL busts

Johnny Manziel
Bryce Petty
Cade McNown
Rick Mirer
Craig Erickson

Not sure Flutie belongs in the first list , but I guess not in the "busts" either

That's alright. Bobby Layne probably forgot too.

Even though he passed, I find this funny.

I am sure you could put up a comprable list using the Rose Bowl as well.

Bobby probably would have thought it was funny as well. No disrespect intended.
