Elsworth Turner Alan Hooker Connell Maynor/AFL/Body Double for Jamie Fox in Any Given Sunday
When you look at the greatest QB in Aggie history for me you have to also look a the rules and the changes to the rules as to what a DB could and could not do to an receivers , Elsworth , Connell and Hooker had a tighter window to work against coverage wise. DB's could press cover all over the field. Reynard and Carter had the benefit of the changes in the coverage rules where the QB before them did not . That is why I try to stay out of the argument or comparison of who is the best quarterback .

Raynard Hooker Turner/Manor/Carter
Hooker hands down when it comes individual talent and athleticism as a before his time true dual threat. Raynard is number one in my book because when it comes to winning it’s hard to compare him. All these guys are great!!!

You guys forgot Paul Swan, Donald Boone, as well as others. You fellas are period selectors. You know who was good during your period and going forward.
*Turner was an excellent passer. Don't forget that. Smart player too. *Maynor was an excellent field General, could pass and was smart too. *Hooker was a very good passer and field general. *All were adequate runners *Folks have spent too much time questioning whether Raynard should have been the starter. Grudgingly giving him credit for all the games he won.
A lot of our qbs were shackled by the offenses the coaches ran at the time. From what I've seen Hooker thankfully had an offense that catered to his strengths and players that he gelled with that helped him, at least in 86. Raynard had a ridiculous abundance of riches his senior year.
I can't call it if you made everything else equal. It's not like we had any Steve McNair level cats running through here (or at least any that were allowed to be Steve McNair by the coaches.
