2008 Heisman Race

Sam Bradford took home the hardware in NYC this weekend. There is very little to argue with on this one. Bradford put up 48 touchdowns through the air and another five on the ground. He has nearly 4500-yards passing and an astronomical 186 QB rating. Sam certainly deserved the award statistically. McCoy and Tebow rounded out the top 3, in that order.

But as avid CFBN readers know, this site declares its own winner after the bowl games. I firmly believe that you evaluate players on more than stats though; you must evaluate them according to their impact on their team. This is why I still believe Tebow is the leading candidate for this site's award. However, Bradford and Tebow will have the perfect opportunity to prove who means more to their team in the National Championship game on Jan. 8.

At this point, CFBN has trimmed the list to three: Bradford, McCoy and Tebow.

Heading into bowl season, the trimmed Heisman list remains the same:

No. Po. Name Team
1 QB Tim Tebow
Florida
2 QB Sam Bradford
Oklahoma
3 QB Colt McCoy
Texas

What about Armanti Edwards of Appalachian State? If he has a game aganist LSU like he had aganist Michigan, he will be all the buzz again. Division 1A is not the only place where the best football player in the nation can reside!

I completely agree. Armanti Edwards is explosive and will dominate again. Watch for his name after those Tigers go down on Aug 30. GO APP!!!!

41-13, LSU. Sorry guys ... Armanti Edwards was 13-of-31 for 155 yards and a touchdown, but lost badly in this one. This is a clear example of the gap in talent between 1-A and 1-AA, as the defending national champs for each faced off.

What about Javon Ringer? If he has another 200yd game he should be one of the top heiseman contenders.With 9 tochdowns already through three games. That is amazing

If he and Michigan State get a big win over the Irish, he will certainly garner some attention.

Where is Terrence Cody in this? He is the leader of the Alabama (2) defense! He is the anchor, and no one has stopped him. At least in the top 10
