Winston vs Williams for Heisman

Inside the numbers

Jameis Winston has the highest total QBR in the last 10 years (since QBR became a relevant stat). That's higher than previous heisman winners Manziel, RG3, Bradford, Newton, Tebow, Leinert, and Palmer. Also higher than Andrew Luck best season and Russell Wilson's best season. Against the 3 ranked teams he has faced he's put up huge numbers 66-95 (69%) for 1162 yards (387 ypg) and 9-3 TD/INT. He's #1 in the nation in total QBR and adjusted QBR.

Andre Williams has faced 3 really good teams all season (FSU, Clemson, and USC). In those games he has 69 carries for 257 yards (3.7 ypc) and ZERO TD's. That's not heisman like! You can't penilize a QB for struggling against top competition and not a RB. Not to mention his team isn't even ranked.

Williams is a good player on an average team but Winston is a great player on the #2 team in the country. Hell, Freeman could probably put up similar numbers as Williams if he was the starting RB at BC, but I seriously doubt Chase Rettig would have us sitting at #2 and be the heisman front runner if he were our starting QB. There really shouldn't be any argument if and when Winston is cleared. He's been the front runner ever since Oregon got folded up by Stanford and he should stay at the top as long as he is playing.

Bottom line is, if Winston isn't charged then he should walk away with the Heisman. He should not be penalized if he has been cleared by the time the ballots are cast.
