Heisman Scenarios

We here at HeismanWatch.com came up with two brilliant scenarios we forecast on the Heisman horizon.  Both with similar logic but contrasting conclusions.  Let’s begin with a rather obvious observation that’s relevant in both scenarios: there’s no clear #2 contender.  There hasn’t been for some time.  Lamar Jackson has been everyone’s ‘front-runner’ for at least[…]

Opportunity Lost

Last Thursday, Heisman front-runner Lamar Jackson had his worst game of the season.  That’s truly saying something because his ‘worst’ game of 211 passing yards was still better than 70 other starting FBS QB’s.  Still, Louisville lost their playoff luster getting stampeded by the Houston Cougars, 36-10.  So for the first time since mid-September, the[…]

Overreaction Friday

“Down goes Jackson!  Down goes Jackson!” Not just a popular catch-phrase referencing an upset in the sports world but ESPN play-by-play announcer Dave Flemming was literally saying that over and over again.  Eleven, count ’em, eleven sacks on the night for the ‘unranked’ Houston Cougars as they manhandled ‘Heisman front-runner’ Lamar Jackson, 36-10 on Thursday[…]

The Browning Effect

Unlike any Heisman candidate on our radar, Washington QB Jake Browning’s ordinary quarterback play makes him the most unique Heisman candidate. Take the other candidates for example; Deshaun Watson, Greg Ward Jr., Jalen Hurts, J.T. Barrett and (to a much higher degree) Lamar Jackson can change the game with their legs as  much as they[…]

Deshaun Watson’s Heisman Forecast

It’s easy to get distracted by what #8 in Cardinal red is doing over in Louisville, KY.  But what Lamar Jackson has showcased is not guaranteed to be the standard by which the Heisman shall be won.  Heisman voters made need more criteria that accompany the stats. That’s where Deshaun Watson’s candidacy will stand out.[…]
