In my little heart, I had hope that Ndamukong Suh would wrap up his trophy-filled week by hoisting the Heisman up on the stage tonight. But in my brain, I was pretty sure it wouldn’t happen. Defensive players just don’t win the Heisman; it’s a “best at scoring touchdowns” type of award. (Woodson excepted, obviously.)
But hey, there Suh was, in his suit, next to QBs and RBs in their suits. He had invaded their world already – and the announcers were not shy about mentioning how Suh had utterly annihilated fellow candidate Colt McCoy a week ago. You’ve seen this, I’m sure, but it’s worth watching again.
In this 13-second clip, you can clearly see who is the better football player. And that whole game was like that – Suh owning McCoy at every turn. And it’s how Suh played all season, breaking through double- and even triple-teams to sack QBs, blocking opposing kicks, or even dropping into pass coverage to knock down passes.
Colt Effing McCoy finished ahead of Ndamukong Suh in the Heisman voting. Colt McCoy was Suh’s…erm….I can’t say the word I want on this family-friendly blog. Prison-buddy, wink wink? ANYWAY. In no way are any voters justified in placing McCoy ahead of Suh.
That Suh didn’t win is sort of expected, but that he finished only fourth is a farce.
