    I don't disagree about our offense, but Manziel made plays the whole game including the 3rd and 4th quarters. We contained him much better after the first quarter, but we didn't shut him down. Two of the most critical plays were dimes he tossed to his guys that were very well defended. Just perfect throws. The evidence is in the video.

    Trevor Lawrence - The most one sided performance in Nick Saban history.

    In deciding my vote I somewhat went outside the scope of the question. I voted Garcia because all the other quarterbacks were the type of players who commonly put up big numbers in games. Look at Garcia's career, even operating within a Spurrier style offense. He simply wasn't the type of quarterback who commonly put up big game numbers. The other ones did. So for him to do what he did against us, is a lot more impressive and shocking as well. It was like Dan Marino's spirit descending upon Garcia's body for that game. His stats for that game compared to the others on the list aren't eye popping. But taking into consideration the caliber of quarterback he was, compared to the rest. His was the most impressive. Oh, and almost forgot this about Garcia. He was also a head case to deal with.
