Heisman Watch 2009: Colt McCoy Needs Huge Big 12 Championship

They don’t like rewarding the Heisman Trophy to people who do what they were expected to do. It doesn’t go to solid, consistent performers. It goes to flashy superstars. It goes to the guys who shock the world with almost above-human performances time and time again. It goes to guys that everybody has been amazed by and enamored with. It goes to legendary performers who leave lasting memories for decades to come. I dare say that this is the problem for both Ingram and McCoy – this year there just isn’t enough of a national love affair with these guys. So who are we in love with? Who shocked and amazed us? Who overachieved? He’s a running back who wears red, but he’s not from

Terrelle Pryor: In Like A Lion, Playing Like A Lamb

Terrelle Pryor was the nation’s top quarterback recruit but is struggling at quarterback in his second season for Ohio State. After a horrible loss to the 1-5 Purdue Boilermakers, changes will be needed to the offense and to Terrelle’s attitude if the Buckeyes hope to salvage what’s left of their

Mark Sanchez: His Early Season Swagger Is Fading

Mark Sanchez seems to be well-liked by teammates, and has shown throughout the beginning of his rookie year that he is willing to do whatever it takes to be the leader of the New York Jets and become a great NFL quarterback.

Tate Forcier: The Young Gunner Is The Real Deal

Tate Forcier, after just a few starts as a true freshmen quarterback for the Michigan Wolverines, has shown the Wolverine faithful that he is indeed the real deal. And after four nice wins for the program and a top 25 ranking, coach Rich Rodriguez may have done the same for himself.

Matt Stafford: Leadership Abilities Questioned By Several Georgia Bulldogs

Quarterback Matt Stafford was recently referred to directly, and indirectly, by a number of current Georgia Bulldog players when it came to the idea of team leadership, unity, drive, and determination. Matt Stafford’s quarterbacking skills were never called into question, but last year’s Georgia Bulldogs were a big disappointment and it seems a lot of fingers are being pointed at last year’s seniors, and the fact that there was too much focus on superstars going to the NFL rather than bringing a team together to win an SEC championship, and possibly a national championship. Matt Stafford says he’s ready to take on a leadership role in rebuilding the Detroit Lions, but we better just wait one minute before we delegate the task of Lion Savior to

Terrelle Pryor: The Only Quarterback The Buckeyes Really Have

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor Ohio State rolling out

Well Ohio State Buckeye fans, you better hope Terrelle Pryor really is going to be your savior, because as Brian Cook’s article recently noted, Terrelle Pryor is the only quarterback Ohio State really has so he better stay healthy, and he better be great!

“You see, Ohio State backup quarterbacks Rob Schoenhoft and Antonio Henton transferred last year, leaving Pryor, senior Todd Boeckman, and 26-year-old ex-minor-league-baseball-player and walk-on Joe Bauserman the only quarterbacks on the roster. Boeckman is now out of eligibility….So, yeah, next year Ohio State’s quarterback depth chart will be Terrelle Pryor, Walk-on baseball guy, and basically Nick Sheridan.”

Terrifying!

Now there’s no question that Terrelle Pryor showed he can be the man at Ohio State. And there’s no question that he’s sure he’s the man everywhere he goes. Yeah, he’s immensely talented, a huge guy at 6′6″, and unfortunately the only hope The Buckeyes have.

Will Pryor Have The Leadership Skills?
