That was "beautiful."

See, it works because it's subtle. You think it's going to break one way (Husky Honk revisionist "awesomism") and then the Duck alum plays the INT and 9-0 cards.

I imagine some skinny little shit sporting a purple t-shirt is working his fingers right now to change that "history." Probably replace it with some newly issued Mutt national championship, ca 1860.

Agree'd. College rivalries are so much more fun then NFL rivalries. Especially when its kept fun and light hearted.

Remember when T-Man was on KJR? He had a show on there and I was a frequent caller. So frequent, he'd replay the play-by-play of this specific Huard moment, if I was "failing" him. I had to be 15 or 16.

I was always amazed Damon made it to the NFL. He's the worst Husky QB, IMO, since I've been alive.

Huard wasn't the worst, that is reserved for Carl Bonnell or Casey Paus.

What about that Jake Locker dude? He was a pretty awful QB.

Pretty good athlete though.

And, I don't really appreciate Stupid passing off his antics as light-hearted. They most certainly are not. Jsea, you do realize losing to the Ducks then is the equivalent of losing to the Colorado Buffalo's now, right? It hurt.

Correction: Worst REAL QB, or, I don't know. Worst Husky QB when they we're decent.

Paus reference...nice!

You'll never hear CFB fans crying about crowd noise, that's for sure.

Best: Mariota. Some would say Dan Fouts or Norm Van Brocklin, but they were both before I was even born. Dennis Dixon had the best individual season (before injury).

Personal fav: Mariota. Dennis Dixon. Bill Musgrave (he was the QB when I first started to get into football).

Worst: Can't think of any regular starters that were really horrible. A few backups who had to start some games that were pretty bad though.

When you speak of Tony Grazziani you need to refer to him as Arena League Legend Tony Grazziani.

All things being equal...I'd actually put Price over Moon. In fact, Moon, as much as I loved the guy, wouldn't be in my top 5.

That's not to diminish Moon, it just says what a QB factory we've been. I believe 18 of our last 19 (excluding Montana) played in the NFL. Next year it'll be 19 of 20...and so it goes.

Would you call Mariota better than Tui? I ask in all seriousness.

Mehhhh Locker is severely over rated by UW fans.

Price > Locker

I know Tui was a stud but I don't remember him all that well so I cant answer the question.

In the current system that both UO and UW play Marcus Mariota is the perfect QB.

I'm not over-rating Jake. He wasn't very good. But I think in the UO offense, he woulda killed. I'd more compare Mariota to Tui...was just having fun with JSea.

Tui would be as well. He was something else man... If you can bring yourself to do it, check out some of his highlights on YouTube.

Agreed. Mariota is the man. Too early to call him better than Tui, IMO. Tui was unbelievable, but sometimes, not overly bright. Heart breaker.

If I could take one Husky and put him in the current Ducks offense it would be Napolean Kaufmann. I think that dude would kill it in this spread offense.

Corey Dillon would as well.

My fav Dawg from those days is Steve Emtman.

With all respect, you're VERY wrong and it's not even close. Moon was very good at U-dub, but more myth than legend. Moons best year was probably not as good as Price's worst year. And Moon was on a better team. If Moon squeeks into our top 5, it's hype that gets him there. Research bro.

Moon had a lot of adversity to fight through, especially given that he was a QB in a time where Black QB's weren't something people really looked at positively. At least not as much as they do today. I give Warren a lot of credit for that. Not many people can say they are in the NCAA Hall of Fame, NFL Hall of Fame, and the CFL Hall of Fame. He was an incredible QB, that does not get the respect he deserves.

My #2 favorite Dawg. Yeah, he was something. I think he was benching 400 at 185 lbs. Deceptively strong, quick and awesome vision.

Like Dawg suggested, JSEA, try to find some tape on Tui. He woulda' been an absolute monster in your O....you'd give 2 Kaufman's for him (in your offense). Seriously.

That's a lot of respect right there broham. Too much. I hope you don't take offense in me correcting you on a few things. You're my Dawg brother in here. ; ) The race card actually worked to Moons favor. As you suggested, there wasn't as many black QBs then. The few that were, were typically running QBs. So along comes this very well spoken, polite, handsome young black QB that could win within the pocket. That was all he needed to get him the accolades you mention above.

Please do go look at his numbers while at U-Dub. I am certain you will ask...HTF did Moon get into the college football HOF? It's because of what I just told you. keep in mind...I LOVED the guy. Probably watched him live half a dozen times and I doubt I missed a game on TV. There's a certain romance that goes with Warren Moon. Over time, people started believing he actually was our best. He wasn't.

Good stuff bro...very generous of you. They sure left a lot out, though. In fact, one of his greatest plays ever... ended with a fumble. But that was Tui. I thought I heard Manti Teo's girlfriend singing background on that cut. ; )

I watched it, but its hard to get the feel for a player just based off of highlight tapes.

I didn't pay a ton of attention to UW back in those days, but when I think of Tui I think of a guy who was a great QB and great leader but he did it more on guts, instinct and toughness rather then with perfect QB skills and techniques. Sort of a Russell Wilson to Andrew Luck type comparision. With Tui being the RW type.

Kind of like Scott Frost, whos now the Ducks offensive coordinator, and was the same kind of QB back at Nebraska.

At least that's my memory of him, whether or not its accurate.

Nah, Tui would've been a great NFL QB. Just bad luck...with the Raiders at the worst time. I always figured the hatred ran so deep, that Gruden never attempted to get Tui to TB. Tui was to be Gruden's Golden Boy Heir Apparent to Gannon. Then, Al traded Gruden.

He was a sure thing, IMO.

That clip almost brought a tear to my eye. I realized 3 things I really miss:

1) Don James
2) Smacking the duck shit out of Oregon
3) The horse collar tackle.

Amen dude. More importantly - hot talking teams that think they are above UW, getting beat.

From an athletic stand point for sure, but not so sure Tui was cerebral enough to excel as a top notch NFL QB for any extended period of time. Absolutely loved the guy, though. If you could marry the talents of Price and Locker, you'd get Tui.

Well said dude. :th2thumbs:

The QB of the future... Cyler Miles, is going to make Seattle a happy football town.

Didn't Tui throw a pic to end the game against UO in 2000?

No, Tui was nothing like Scott Frost who didn't throw for more than 100 yards a game in college. Tui was a much better passer and didn't have near the production running Frost did (he prob went for 1k or more rushing his SR season when he scored a million TD's and Nebraska split the National Championship).

The closest comparison you'd get to someone around the Oregon program would be Jeremiah Masoli minus the felonies. Tui was light years ahead as a passer, but they had similar skills when running the ball and while Tui probably has a couple of inches on him, they were built similarly.
