Re: Houston Texans

I think that's because his top 10 only counts seniors

Re: Houston Texans

It seems like QBs that win the Heisman tend to be a bust, whereas the RBs that win end up pretty successful in the NFL.

Since 1980 the only remotely successful QB has been Carson Palmer, and his success is very recent. Guys like Flutie and Testaverde have had long careers, but I'm not sure they're future hall of famers.

The RBs on the other hand do pretty well - Marcus Allen, Herschel Walker, Bo Jackson, Barry Sanders, Eddie George, Ricky Williams and Ron Dayne. Not all are equal, but I'd say they've all done pretty well.

Maybe the Heisman is the kiss of death for a QB, but a decent predictor of success for a RB?

You'd make a better case for Heisman running backs if you dropped Ron Dayne who has not done diddley-squat in his four or five year tenure in the league and added a gentleman named Earl Campbell.

Probably true, though I only said from 1980 on - Campbell was the 1977 winner.

Dayne definitely isn't the standout of the bunch though, I'd agree. Though I think you'd have to agree that on the whole, throughout the history of the Heisman, there are substantially more Hall of Fame or future Hall of Fame RBs than QBs.
