This week saw some heated competition for the CNQBW honors.
Previous winner Dennis Dixon of Oregon lead the Ducks in turning a close game into a second half romp against up and coming Stanford.
Dixon threw for 367 yards and four TD's to bolster his claim as top QB in the PAC-10.
Statistically, that is tough to compete with. But our winner this week gets the nod based on his leadership in the face of adversity and his team's second straight impressive comeback victory.
At this point, Andre' Woodson HAS to be the Heisman front runner. HAS to be!
Woodson's numbers don't tell the full story; 265 yds and 2 TD's. The full story is one of superior field generalship and complete control of every situation.
Ater 1/3 of the season, it's become clear:
The battle for top QB in the nation is really only a two man race. There are a few QB's out west putting up big numbers. But they are system QB's. And the young man at USC is surrounded by so much talent that the notion of him being the top QB in the country can't even legitimately be considered.
We suspect, that at the end of the year, if you tally up who took home the CNQBW honor the most times...you will have your Heisman winner.
