How much of his success was Johnny Football?

By: scwolf



It's no coincidence that all his success was during Johnny Manzel's time at QB; what happened after? 

PC was able to sustain a high level of talent/recruiting at most positions, and especially, QB despite the loss of Palmer and Leinart; even though Sanchez, Booty and Barkely didnt' end up being Heisman caliber, they were definitely highly rated prospects out of high school, and PC did his job bringing them in. 

Urban Meyer similarly had a line of QBs that were game changers ready to step up year after year.

Sumlin appeared to be a one hit wonder who was elevated because of one player, nothing more. Similarly, the true test of Helton as coach is whether he can continue replacing Darnold with effective QBs moving forward.
