Heisman-Destination 2006

Yikes.

Resource favorite Heisman Pundit is back, and has a new entry about the potential field for... 2006!  We'd make fun of him for this, but 1)it's slow season and 2)after following that site we understand the rationale behind the choices and actually find little to disagree with.

One emergent theme is that the traditional Heisman powers (USC, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame) earn mention.  Another is that the "USC QB" is now generic enough to be projected into the next season.  Wasn't USC tailback-U and isn't Reggie Bush arguably the leading Heisman candidate this season?  I can't wait to see the next two Heisman seasons play out to test these models.  Hopefully nobody gets injured along the way.

My thoughts on each listed figure-

Adrian Peterson-Greatest pure runner in the game.  Not as exciting as Reggie Bush.  Has that Hershel Walker feel.

Chris Leak-About to become a superstar.  Lacks personality, but a dynamic thrower who has his explosive moments on the field.

Brady Quinn-Notre Dame.

Chad Henne-Mr. Vanilla.

Kyle Wright-I felt during his recruitment he was the closest thing to Carson Palmer I had seen.  Time for him to live up to that burden (read---greatness interspersed with inconsistency).

Ted Ginn-Incredible hype and excitement, great great great athlete, doing it so well at such an early stage.  On a declining team, perhaps.

John David Booty-Unknown, but coming out of high school was renowned for his accuracy and touch.  Must shake that shotgun quarterback rep.  Playing at USC helps.

Drew Tate-Piss and vinegar.  We love the energy of this guy, really caught fire at the end of last season.

Wow, those were generic.  Had to type something, though.  Enjoy your weekend.

What about Marshawn Lynch?

Looks like HP has now included Marshawn Lynch on his list. Good, I don't know how he got overlooked. I think Lynch may go down as one of this era's great backs. Obviously it's premature to say that, but he's a very legit back, with size, speed, power, vision, running and receiving ability, he can return kicks, block, he's everything you want and more. I disagree with HeismanPundit in that I think Lynch, if healthy, will far exceed 1,500 yards this year. Too bad Cal has such little Heisman pull.

Thanks for the heads up.

He also threw for a TD or two last year :)
