Super Quarterbacks

Bryce-Petty-1

A stat to remember as the 2014 season starts:

The last six Heisman-winning quarterbacks have averaged the following in these important categories (at the time of the Heisman vote):

4,292 yards of total offense, 47 combined touchdowns, 181.3 passer rating.

Compare this to the previous five quarterbacks who won the Heisman:

3,257 yards of total offense, 33 combined touchdowns, 153.8 passer rating.

That’s over 1,000 more yards of offense, 14 more touchdowns and almost 30 more passer rating points than the previous trend line.

This is the era of the Super Quarterback. If you want to find out who the next Heisman winner will be, just figure out the identity of this year’s Super Quarterbacks.
