Mariota Wins Heisman; One Heisman winning QB Starting Today

All of you know Marcus Mariota won the Heisman Trophy, awarded to college football’s most outstanding player. I think that’s terrific. Mariota deserved it, his numbers are terrific and he’s contributed to the Ducks success.
A couple of sports talk shows acknowledged his success while pointing out this does not necessarily translate to NFL success. In fact several former Heisman winners have failed in the NFL. Being sports talk douches, they made some weird crap up on behalf of Johnny Manziel, stating only one former Heisman winner is starting at QB in week 15. Like that’s some big deal. Cam Newton, a better QB than JFF will ever be, would have started if he hadn’t been in an auto accident.
Cleveland thought JFF would make a difference. Not quite, unless getting shut out 0-30 is that kind of difference. Good call Jimmy Haslem, er, Coach Pettine.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
