1. Top 5 QB's in Passing Yards

Southern Mississippi - Brett Favre

Pitt - Dan Marino

Tennessee - Peyton Manning

Georgia - don't know

Stanford - don't know

 

I thought one of the top 5 was Warren Moon, but I didn't think he went to Georgia or Stanford

 

 

None of the other lists jumped out at me

This one bothered me because I couldn't remember who #1 was....and I knew it couldn't be Josh McDaniels.

 

10. Winningest NFL coaches

 

Don Shula- John Carroll

George Halas - Illinois

Tom Landry - Texas

?????- Notre Dame

Chuck Noll - Pitt

 

Check. Notre Dame is Curly Lambeau. Chuck Noll didn't go to Pitt, he went to Dayton. It is Marty Schottenheimer that went to Pitt. Yes, Marty is one of the top 5 winningest coaches in NFL history.
