There are several things you can do if a group is talking about quarterbacks and you want to join in the conversation.
Your first option is to look up a quarterback on a bad team, or a mediocre mid-major, which is a conference other than the SEC, ACC, Big 12, Pac-10, Big 10, and Big East.
For our setting let's choose the Troy Trojans. You can say that Troy has a top-10 quarterback but he has the misfortune of playing on a lousy team. Be sure to mention the quarterback's name. (Note: This tip can be used for talking about a player at most any position; we will go over these later in the slideshow.)
The benefit of using a smalltime player at a smalltime school is that most fans will be too lazy to bother looking up any stats you reel off.
The second technique you can use is take a quarterback of a Heisman watch list (these can be found simply by typing "Heisman Watch" into your search engine) and telling why he is the best quarterback in the nation, use general phrases such as "That Colt McCoy is scary-accurate," "He is very clutch," "He makes his team look good," or the always popular "He is simply unstoppable."
If the player you pick is not first on the watch list, you can use these points to say he is underrated and should be first.
The third and most fun technique is taking a quarterback and tearing him down saying he is overrated. Saying he is not clutch, his team makes him look better than he is, or he has just been lucky so far.
These techniques are almost guaranteed to make you look like the average intelligent college football fan when quarterbacks are in the conversation.
