Fitzgerald won't get the Heisman. He lost the little chance he had when Miami shut him down 2 weeks ago. He will be a force next year no doubt. Jason White is still very much in the race, and I bet he still wins it. I would give it to Eli Manning though. Perry won't get it because of his and Michigans early season troubles.

I'll stick with my very early-season comments on Perry. Actually, ALL these kids are great, but maybe because of a little Michigan prejudice, I'd still vote for Perry, with long second-looks at Manning. Regards...Jack

Fitzgerald should get it, period, but I agree that the Miami game might have killed his chances. Truth is, "he" wasn't shut down by Miami. He could have been 12 feet tall and had the same numbers; Rutherford had no time to even throw the ball in his direction. Pitt's pathetic line cost him the Heisman that game.
OU's loss, however, has made it interesting. White is definitely a 21st century Gino.

Well, since everyone is flawed: Fitzgerald had a terrible game against the 'Canes, White had a terrible game against K-State, and Perry against Oregon, give it to the guy who has had 12 unreal games in a row-Ben Roethlesberger!
: Phillip Rivers, but otherwise absolutely anyone but Manning (even though I will agree that Peyton should've gotten it back in his day).
: Didn't Big Ben have a terrible opening game...while White had a an unreal 12 game run as well? NEXT!

: Big Ben had 3 picks, but threw a TD, I believe, and threw for about 300 yards. Big Ben is a better QB than Jason White, hands down. NEXT!
: White threw 2 pics against K-State. Over all he had 40, thats FORTY TD passes and only 8 pics, while playing a tougher schedule. Just cause I shot dow

: White played for a better TEAM, which is why his numbers are so great. Not that he's a bad QB, but I think Big Ben is a better one. Here's Bens states
