Heisman college championship and Super B

Joe Burrow is on the precipice of history.The second-year quarterback has the Bengals playing Jason Terry Jersey in their first Super Bowl since the 1988 season, with a chance to give Cincinnati its first title in franchise history. A win in Super Bowl 56 over the Rams would also make Burrow one of the most accomplished players in college football and NFL history in just his second season in the league.If Burrow is able to lead the Bengals to the NFL’s ultimate prize, he would achieve a tremendous quarterback triple crown: national champion, Heisman Trophy and Super Bowl champion. And he would achieve all of that in a two-year span.Burrow achieved the first two of those accomplishments in 2019, a season in which he not only won the Heisman Trophy but also led LSU to a 15-0 record and a win in the 2020 College Football Playoff championship game. It’s on the short list of greatest college football seasons of all time.Now, Burrow has a chance to expand on that legacy with an even more impre sive indeed, unprecedented achievement. With that, The Sporting News breaks down the extremely short list of players who have won the national championship, Heisman Trophy and Super Bowl in their playing careers:Joe Burrow could be first QB to win national championship, Heisman Trophy and Super BowlNo quarterback has ever earned that distinctive trifecta of national championship, Heisman Trophy and Super Bowl.Its worth noting one quarterback who came agonizingly close to becoming the first quarterback to earn that distinctive triple crown: Cam Newton.The former Auburn quarterback led the Tigers to the 2010 BCS championship, a season in which he also won the Heisman Trophy. He went No. 1 in the 2011 NFL Draft and, five years later, led the Panthers to Super Bowl 50, a year in which he was also named NFL MVP. But a lackluster performance against Von Miller and the Broncos kept Newton out of that impre sive fraternity.That said, there have been three non-quarterback players who achieved that elusive achievement: running backs Tony Dorsett John Henson Jersey (Pitt, Cowboys) and Marcus Allen (USC, Raiders), and defensive back Charles Woodson (Michigan, Packers).HeismanNational championshipSuper BowlTony Dorsett1976197612Marcus Allen1981197828Charles Woodson1997199745Dorsett and Allen’s respective achievements are also notable, even among that exclusive list.Dorsett in 1977 became the first player to win the college football national championship, then win the Super Bowl the next year (with the Cowboys). Allen, meanwhile, is the only player in football history to claim a national championship, Heisman Trophy, Super Bowl championship, NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP.However, none of those players was the No. 1 overall pick, as was Burrow: They went No. 2, No. 10 and No. 4 in the 1977, 1982 and 1998 NFL drafts, respectively. Should Burrow lead the Bengals to a win in Super Bowl 56, it would be one small tick he could claim over his fellow first-rounders who otherwise achieved the same feat.How many QBs won a national championship and Super Bowl?To date, only Joe Namath of Alabama and Joe Montana of Notre Dame have won a national championship in college and gone on to quarterback a Super Bowl-winning team. Neither won the Heisman Trophy.Namath led the Crimson Tide to a 10-1 season in 1964 and a championship by both the AP and UPI polls before a 21-17 lo s to Texas in the Orange Bowl. He later led the upstart AFL Jets to a win over the NFLs Colts in Super Bowl 3.Montana did the same for the Fighting Irish, leading them to an 11-1 record and consensus national title in 1977, their lone blemish a 20-13 lo s to Ole Mi s. Montana would go on to set the standard for Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks, leading the 49ers to a 4-0 record with wins in Super Bowls 16, 19, 23 and 24.Could Burrow become the third Joe to win the ultimate prize in college football and the NFL? If he did, he would replicate the feat faster than either of his two predece sors: Namath and Montana had five and four years between their national championships and Super Bowls, respectively. For Burrow, it would be only two.How many QBs have won a Heisman Trophy and Super Bowl?Navy’s Roger Staubach and Stanford’s Jim Plunkett are other quarterbacks who claim two thirds of the championship Vin Baker Jersey /Heisman/Super Bowl triple crown. Unlike Namath and Montana, they dont have national championships. But they do have the greatest individual award in all of sports: The Heisman Trophy.Staubach won the 1963 Heisman Trophy off a campaign in which he led the Midshipmen to a 9-1 season and No. 2 overall ranking. Staubach that season completed 128 of 192 pa ses (66.7 percent) for 1,702 yards and seven touchdowns to seven interceptions. He also rushed 158 times for 371 yards and nine touchdowns. He would later go on to lead Dallas to victories in Super Bowls 6 and 8; he was Super Bowl MVP in the latter, becoming the first of four players to win a Heisman Trophy and Super Bowl MVP (the other three being Plunkett, Allen and Desmond Howard).Plunkett led the Cardinal to a 9-3 record in 1970, a season in which he completed 211 of 388 pa ses for 2,980 yards and 19 touchdowns to 19 interceptions. He had 87 rushes for 209 yards and three more scores. Following stints with the Patriots and 49ers, Plunkett led the Raiders to victories in Super Bowl 15 and 18, earning MVP in the former.Other players to have won a Heisman Trophy and a Super Bowl include:Paul Hornung (1956 Heisman, Super Bowl 1)John Huarte (1964 Heisman, Super Bowl 4)Mike Garrett (1965 Heisman, Super Bowl 4)Tony Dorsett (1976 Heisman, Super Bowl 12)Marcus Allen (1991 Heisman, Super Bowl 18)George Rogers (1980 Heisman, Super Bowl 22)Desmond Howard (1993 Heisman, Super Bowl 31)Charles Woodson (1996 Heisman, Super Bowl 45)NFL QBs drafted No. 1 overall to win a Super BowlUnsurprisingly, several top NFL draft picks have enjoyed Super Bowl succe s. A total of nine quarterbacks drafted No. 1 overall have gone onto earn a Lombardi Trophy:Joe Namath (1965)*: Super Bowl 3Terry Bradshaw (1970): Super Bowls 9, 10, 13, 14Jim Plunkett (1971): Super Bowl 15, 18John Elway (1983): Super Bowls 32, 33Troy Aikman (1989): Super Bowl 27, 28, 30Drew Bledsoe (1993): Super Bowl 36Peyton Manning (1998): Super Bowl 41, 50David Carr (2002): Super Bowl 46Eli Manning (2004): Super Bowl 42, 46*Namath was the 12th overall pick of the 1965 NFL Draft, and the first overall selection by the Spencer Hawes Jersey Jets of the AFL Draft. New Yorks win over the Colts in Super Bowl 3 was the penultimate AFL-NFL World Championship before the leagues merger.Jared Goff, who went No. 1 in the 2016 NFL Draft, led the Rams to Super Bowl 53, where they lost 13-3 to the Patriots. Curiously, quarterback Matthew Stafford the top overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft is likewise making his debut in Super Bowl 56.Still more non-quarterback players have gone No. 1 overall and won a Super Bowl:Paul Hornu

Mel Kiper Goes on the Defense for Giants

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper has gone on the defense for the New York Giants in his latest mock draft, which dropped just before the start of the combine, selecting Oregon edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux at No. 5 and Utah linebacker Devin Lloyd for Big Blue.These choices appear to have been made after Kiper had the top two offensive tackles, North Carolinas Ikem Ekwonu and Alabamas Evan Neal, going off the board before the Giants first pick. Kipers thinking would appear to align with that of NFL.com draft analyst Daniel Jeremiahs when he said that if those two tackles were off the board, he wouldnt want to see the Giants force an offensive lineman at No. 5.Of Thibodeaux, :If the draft plays out like this and both of the top offensive tackles are off the board before the Giants pick, taking a defender makes the most sense. And if Thibodeaux is available Terry Steinbach Jersey , he’d be a perfect fit for a New York defense that needs to pair a true edge rusher with rookie Azeez Ojulari, who led the team with eight sacks last season. Thibodeaux has to improve his all-around game, but he has outstanding physical tools as a pa s-rusher. He had seven sacks last season and put up the second-best pre sure rate in the country (17.8%). If he comes close to his ceiling, he’ll make multiple All-Pro teams.The Giants have some nice pieces to build around for new general manager Joe Schoen and coach Brian Daboll, but they’re not going to be able to acquire an edge rusher like Thibodeaux anywhere other than the draft. We could look back at this pick in five years and consider it a steal.Although the defensive edge rusher cla s is deep with talent this year, if the Giants have a chance at taking the top member of that particular cla s, theyd be foolish not to considering how stagnant their pa s rush has been. New defensive coordinator Don Wink Martindale is reportedly looking to deploy an aggre sive, attacking style of defense, and would no doubt welcome a stud pa s rusher to the lineup.The Giants have been looking to beef up their pa s rush with homegrown talent ever since trading away Jason Pierre-Paul, their first-round pick in 2010, to the Bucs in 2018.New Rollie Fingers Jersey York tried with Lorenzo Carter and Oshane Ximines, both third-round draft picks, but didn’t exactly have enough succe s.Carter hasnt quite developed into the Batman pa s rusher the team has been mi sing since Pierre-Paul patrolled the trenches while Ximines has gone from being a promising prospect to a guy who likely wont even make the roster this year.Scroll to ContinueThe Giants did add Ojulari last year, and he turned in a promising rookie campaign. But one season does not make an NFL star, so while there is optimism Ojulari can be a fixture on the Giants’ pa s rush unit, hell need to continue rising in his career.The Giants also added Elerson Smith in the fourth round of last years draft and Quincy Roche, whom they acquired off waivers from Pittsburgh. Smiths rookie season yielded a minimal sample size leaving the jury Rickey Henderson Jersey still out on whether hell be a fit for what Martindale wants to do. Roche, meanwhile, flashed signs of promise, though again, like Ojulari, hes going to need to continue showing growth.Of Lloyd, : I’m going all-in on improving the front seven of the defense. Lloyd is a middle linebacker, yes, but he does so much more. He had 111 total tackles, eight sacks, 20 tackles for lo s, four interceptions, and a forced fumble last season. He had 16.5 total sacks over the past three seasons. Lloyd (and No. 5 pick Kayvon Thibodeaux) can add some pa s-rush upside to a team that desperately needs it. If New York does take Lloyd here, that probably means Blake Martinez, who tore his left ACL in September, will be a salary-cap casualty.Isnt it interesting how pundits have agreed over the last few years that the Giants need to upgrade their offense, yet when it comes to the draft, we often seem more of a heavy defensive flavor in the early picks? Sure enough, thats the case here, though its hard to find fault with Kipers reasoning on the surface.Blake Martinez is not only coming Andrew Triggs Jersey off a torn ACL, but he currently has the fifth-highest cap number on the team, a number that the Giants probably wont be able to carry this year if theyre to reach their goal of clearing $40 million in cap space.Hence the projection of Lloyd. That said, the question is whether the Giants value an inside linebacker ahead of, say, a cover cornerback, who would allow for the Giants to beef up the coverage in the back end to let the pa s rush to get home.Kiper also acknowledged that The Giants will have to addre s their offensive line at some point this offseason, adding that he considered center Tyler Linderbaum for the second of New Yorks two first-round picks. However, he apparently felt No. 7 was too high to draft a center.

Texans Beat Saints Did Rookie RB Dameon

welcomed the New Orleans Saints to NRG Stadium on Saturday night, kicking off the . It was also the debut of new Texans head coach Teemu Selanne Jersey Lovie Smith, who took over for David Culley following last season.And luckily for Smith, things went according to plan, with the Texans taking down the Saints 17-13 with a late touchdown to move to 1-0 in the preseason.Anytime you keep score,” Smith said afterward, “you wanna win.”Oh, and with the debut of a new running back who might just deserve to be a rookie starter. … maybe Houston can win some more.Texans quarterback Davis Mills looked solid in his limited action in the preseason opener, finishing the game 3-3 for 14 yards and an 86.1 quarterback rating.After Mills checked out Winnipeg Jets Jersey of the game, it was backup quarterback Jeff Driskel who got the majority of snaps for the rest of the game.Driskel largely struggled throughout the night but showed up when it counted, leading the offense down and hitting Jaleel Johnson for a touchdown to give the Texans the winning score with 25 seconds to go. Michael Hutchinson Jersey Scroll to ContinueHowever, may have stolen the show for Houston, stealing the show with five rushesfor 49 yards, with a long of 20, and averaging 9.8 yards per carry.And coming off of back-to-back seasons in which they had arguably the worst rushing attack in the NFL, it was exactly the type of rushing performance that Texans fans everywhere had been desperate to see.Now, they will Drew Stafford Jersey hope to carry Pierce’s momentum on the ground over to preseason Game 2 – and hopefully into the regular season.Following the lo s, the Texans will head to the West Coast, where they will take on the defending Super Bowl Champion Los Angeles Rams at So-Fi Stadium.

When is the Heisman Trophy ceremony Star

The 2019 Heisman race took multiple turns throughout the season, but it resolved with a clear frontrunner.LSU quarterback Joe Burrow wasn’ Roy Halladay Jersey t on most people’s preseason Heisman radars, but he ended as the clear favorite.Ohio State defensive end Chase Young, one of four finalists along with Burrow, may have become the first defensive player to win the award since Charles Woodson in 1997. but a two-game suspension for accepting a loan derailed his candidacy.Buckeyes quarterback Justin Fields will join his teammate, Young, at the ceremony.

The Athens, Ohio, native had a solid junior year but broke out in 2019 to become the likely Heisman winner. Leading the Tigers to an undefeated season, Burrow J.A. Happ Jersey completed 77.9 percent of his pa ses, earned 4,715 pa sing yards and paired 48 touchdowns with six interceptions.No college quarterback since 2000 has had as many yards as Burrow with a completion percentage of 72 or higher.

Fields was a backup at Georgia as a freshman in 2018, joined the Buckeyes in January and received a waiver for immediate eligibility. He took advantage, putting up a 40-1 touchdown-interception ratio, accumulating 2,953 pa sing yards on a 67.5 completion percentage and scoring 10 more touchdowns with his legs.Chase Young, DE, Ohio StateWhen he was on the field, Young tormented opposing offenses.

He completed 71.8 percent of his pa ses, throwing for 3,634 yards, 32 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Three takeaways from No. 1 Alabamas win

Alabama improved to 6-0 Saturday after topping Texas A&M (3-3) 47-28 at Kyle Field, solidifying its placement at the top Joe Colborne Jersey of the college football rankings.Although the Crimson Tide only led by seven after the first quarter, they continued to build on their lead as the contest progre sed, scoring in various ways.It’ll certainly be difficult to take down No. 1 Alabama this year, especially when it has so many ways to win.Here are three takeaways from the Crimson Tide’s win:Alabama’s special teams can make a differenceThe Crimson Tide have had one of the most dynamic offenses in college football over the last two years, and it’s even easier for them when they have a short field to work with. Their special teams Rob Ramage Jersey reduced the workload of their offense Saturday, and it made a huge difference in the end result.Alabama’s kick and punt returning were on another level against Texas A&M. They averaged a staggering 31.2yards on kickoff returns and 30.4yards on punt returns. Henry Ruggs totaled 134kickoff return yardswhile sophomore return specialist Jaylen Waddle accumulated 128. Waddle also notched threereceptions for 48yards and a score.Waddle can weave his way through defenders. TOUCHDOWN Bama. CBS Sports (@CBSSports) But it doesn’t end here for the Crimson Tide, as they also blocked a punt in the fourth quarter, which they scooped up and returned for a score. Who can stop Alabama if its special teams can perform like this? The answer: probably no one.The Crimson Tide have continued to rack up penaltiesAlabama may have beaten Texas A&M handily, but Lanny McDonald Jersey penalties allowed the Aggies to stay in the hunt early on. The Crimson Tide were flagged 11times for a total of 91yards, allowing the Aggies to extend drives several times in the contest. Wideout DeVonta Smith was even ejected in the fourth quarter for throwing a punch. This is already the third time this season Alabama has totaled at least 10 penalties in a game. No team in the Nick Saban era has reached this mark so many times in one year, and it’s still early.Tougher competition is on the way, as Alabama still hasNo. 5 LSU and No. 12 Auburn on its docket. The Crimson Tide willhave to avoid costly violations moving forward.Kellen Mond was under serious pre sureMuch has been made of Alabama’s stagnant pa s rush this year, but it responded to speculation against Texas A&M. The Crimson Matt Duchene Jersey Tide entered Saturday with 10 sacks this season but totaled five against Mond and forced him to scramble quite a bit.Mond was an effective runner when he did take off though, rushing for 90 yards and a score while also throwing two touchdown pa ses. However, he was uncomfortable throughout the game and was rarely able to set his feet.The resurgence of Alabama’s defensive line will only make its team more complete. But consistency is key.

Source All-Pro Jason Peters Eagles Ex Vi

FRISCO – The Dallas Cowboys are trying to stay ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles in their competition for supremacy in the NFC East and might rely on a long-time Eagles standout to help Jordan Eberle Jersey them do so.An NFL source tells CowboysSI.com that Dallas is working to recruit Jason Peters, the formerPhiladelphia left tackle, an effort that we believe will begin with a visit from Peters to The Star in Frisco.The Cowboys of course are trying to fortify their offensive line, at least with a mindset of adding depth at offensive tackle due to the fact that .Smith sustained an avulsion fracture in his left knee – “hamstring Nail Yakupov Jersey tearing from the bone” – and the Cowboys are optimistically suggesting he might return sometime in December after having surgery.Peters, who turned 40 last January, is on the record as saying he would like to play again in 2022 – especially if he can do so with what he considers to be a playoff-contending team.I dont have a time frame,” he said recently. “Whenever the Mark Letestu Jersey opportunity comes, I am going to give it one more run at it.
