The Dominance of the Quarterback

The trend of quarterbacks winning the Heisman lately (four in a row) reflects the dominance of the position in the last 20 years, writes MSNBC’s Mike Celizic.

Money quote: Those days (the days of the runnning back) are gone, and it’s unlikely we’ll see them again. The game’s changed, just as the pro game has changed. The most important person on the field, pro or college, is the quarterback. It’s not even a trend. It’s a fact.
