    Question If Luck Wins the Heisman?

    Do you think Andrew Luck will have a better NFL career if he wins or loses the Heisman this year?

    Think about all the Heisman runner-ups that have excelled in the NFL possibly b/c of a proverbial chip on their shoulder before you answer:

    John Elway 2nd 1982 (Herschel Walker 1st)
    Steve Young 2nd 1983 (Mike Rozier 1st)
    Troy Aikman 3rd 1988 (Barry Sanders 1st)
    Payton Manning 2nd 1997 (Charles Woodson 1st)
    Michael Vick 3rd 1999 (Ron Dayne 1st)
    Drew Brees 3rd 2000 (Chris Weinke 1st)
    Eli Manning 3rd 2003 (Jason White 1st)

    Now look at some of the Heisman winners that have been NFL busts:

    Gino Torretta (1992; Marshall Faulk 2nd)
    Danny Wuerffel (1996)
    Chris Weinke (2000; Drew Brees 3rd)
    Eric Crouch (2001; Rex Grossman 2nd)=both busts!
    Carson Palmer (2002; Larry Johnson 3rd)
    Jason White (2003; Larry Fitzgerald 2nd and Eli Manning 3rd)
    Matt Leinart (2004; Adrian Peterson 2nd)
    Troy Smith (2006; Darren McFadden 2nd)
    Tim Tebow (2007; Darren McFadden 2nd)

    Although it is still too early to tell, Cam Newton has seemingly handled the pressures of being both a Heisman winner and #1 overall pick. Can Luck do the same? Or, would you prefer that he come to Miami with that "chip" on his shoulder?

    Winning the Heisman Trophy or finishing second in the voting doesn't make him a different player.
    I'm here to tell the truth about top secret Air Force project BAR STOOL. Gamma ray radiation from the particle accelerator under Joe Robbie Stadium is real! Get out while you can! This bad football team is just a front for something far more sinister!

    Heisman doesn't have much to do with best football player ... especially NFL. I don't even follow it.

    Its a publicity gimmick to make the NY Downtown Athletic Club look important. Usually goes to someone on a top team that receives the most publicity ... so the publicity rubs off on the NY Downtown Athletic Club.

    That's why so many winners aren't big stars in the NFL. Tebow's a bonafide/certified poop flinger & he won it!! What a joke!!

    The "purported" BEST COLLEGE PLAYER in College Football ... is the Top Draft Pick(s) ... often #2 or #3; as good QBs go first irregardless.

    This.

    Winning the Heisman has no direct bearing on a player's career in the NFL.

    It will have no effect on his NFL career.

    Can you say ?
    "Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."

    "We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."


    "Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."

    "I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."

    -- Joe Philbin 01/12

    Don't forget Ron Dayne. He was the best college player during his career at Wisconsin and totally busted with the Broncos. Jason White didn't even enter the draft and he won it twice.
