Is Tajh Boyd the best of all time?
Boyd has been consistently great throughout his three seasons as Clemson’s starter and is leading the Tigers through one of the best stretches in program history.
He just set the ACC record for career TD passes — passing Philip Rivers — and became the first player in conference history with 10,000 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing in a career.
The Tigers are 30-7 with Boyd as their starter, improving every season.
Tajh Boyd on all the records he's setting: "I can't say that it's irrelevant because it's relevant. It's special."

And although he won’t leave with the Heisman Trophies that Florida State’s Charlie Ward and Chris Weinke won, or the national championship that Homer Jordan brought to Clemson, it’s possible to say that Boyd is the best QB in ACC history.
Ward, Weinke and Rivers are considered the best QBs to play in the ACC.
Ward had a great season in 1993 with 27 TDs and four INTs, and deserved the Heisman and then led the Seminoles to the national title, but started only two seasons and struggled in 1992.
Weinke had a better career than Ward and also led FSU to a national championship.
Rivers had a lot of stats — 13,484 yards and 95 TDs — and was part of a new era of pass-happy QBs and offensive systems, but couldn’t lift the Wolfpack to elite status.
Others on that list include:
So is Boyd the best QB in ACC history? If not, who is your choice?
