    Is the Heisman a QB award now?

    With Marcus Mariota winning the Heisman, that makes five straight quarterbacks winning the Heisman, and 13 times going back to 2000. Passing numbers are at an all-time high, and it seems that every season a major record in each conference is broken.

    Heisman runner-up Melvin Gordon had some support from a former Wisconsin player, Montee Ball, who simply tweeted "qb award" after Mariota won.

    So what do you guys think? Has the Heisman developed into a QB only award, or have we just not seen a dominating season from another position, or is it something else entirely?

    This isn't the year to have that argument. Marcus Mariota won this award. It wasn't given to just the best quarterback this year.

    But yes just like in the NFL its pretty much a Quarterback award.

    I think it's become a QB award becasue of the circumstances of the sport. Spread offenses have inflated passing numbers to video game like proportions, then couple that with the read option and running QBs and you have QBs that are putting up stats virtually unheard of.

    College qb's are expected to do so much more today than they were in the past it's hard to compare any other position. Unless a RB/WR breaks every record like Ricky Williams or Ron Dayne it really comes down to there not being any real great qb's up for the award.

    Its just like the MVP for the NFL. I honestly thing QB's should win it unless another skilled position player just goes nuts and has unbelievable numbers. I feel the same way about the MVP award. I think it should go to a QB just cause they are asked to do so much more and the team is more reliant on them vs any other position on the team.




    There you go thumper

    I think they should give it to the best QB whose line stinks.
    I'm not crazy, just a bit deranged is all.

    Off the top of my head I felt that Ndamukong Suh deserved it his last season. He was a one-man wrecking crew on defense and put up monster stats even though he was double-teamed on nearly every play.

    On the flipside I also think that Peyton Manning should have won it over Charles Woodson. That Charles Woodson only won the award because he made flashy plays and got the Heisman hype from the media in big games whereas Peyton Manning was solid the entire season.

    Woodson even said that he thought Manning should have won it and that he was shocked when he won.

    If he still does, somebody should swipe it, sell it in on Amazon and give the money to victims of family violence.
