the Heisman Trophy has largely become a quarterbacking award. It will probably go to a quarterback again this year.

While I am sort of fine with that, as quarterback is the single most important position in football, it has also become a team award of late. I am less fine with that. If the most outstanding player happens to be on a bad team, why should that preclude him from winning an award?

In that vein, I am now presenting you with a table of quarterback stats for you to pick your Heisman favorite from. I tried to obfuscate things as much as possible without being overly tricky. Names and teams have been removed, of course. I also removed I-AA competition (thanks cfbstats.com!) to get rid of the most egregious of cupcake games. I also went with touchdown and interception percentage, which are fair (if uncommon) numbers to go with.

I also included how many teams in the current BCS top 25 they have faced and how many top 25 passing defenses they have faced. The top 25 defenses were based on passing efficiency defense and also did not include games against I-AA competition.

Will you favor gaudy stats against weaker competition? Will you give the edge to the guys with the tougher road but more muted stats? Do you like the happy middle instead? How about prioritizing TD percentage versus INT percentage?

Quarterback   Att   Comp   Pct   Yards   Yds/Att   TD%   Int%   Pass Eff   T25Opp   T25 PassD
Quarterback A   247   149   60.3   2,096    8.5    9.72%   5.37%   157.19      3   3
Quarterback B   281   205   73.0   2,828   10.1    9.25%   2.44%   184.46      3   1
Quarterback C   428   313   73.1   3,635    8.5    7.24%   2.88%   164.16      3   1
Quarterback D   209   133   63.6   1,807    8.6    8.13%   3.76%   158.33      3   1
