Here's the thing. I'm watching one of these shows on the Cooking Channel featuring food trucks. There's a Scottish expat making fish and chips; in a thick brogue he somewhat wearily explains his irritation with Americans who habitually order a side of tartar sauce: "tartar sauce is basically gherkins." That's this blog. I claim no particular insight, no revelation. If you enjoy the flavor, great, but this blog is basically gherkins.

Top 10 NFL Careers of Heisman Winners

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

NFL Network just did a list of the top 10 careers of former Heisman winners.  I have it, but haven't watched yet.  In anticipation, here's my ranking

1.       Barry Sanders 
2.       Roger Staubach 
3.       OJ Simpson 
4.       Tony Dorsett 
5.       Marcus Allen 
6.       Charles Woodson 
7.       Jim Plunkett 
8.       Alan Ameche 
9.       Paul Hornung 
10.   Tim Brown 

That was my list - here's the NFL Network's list.

10. Cam Newton (That's stupid.)
9. Marcus Allen
8. Earl Campbell (behind both Walkers, Herschel and Doak, of guys not making my list).
7. Tim Tebow (I assume Jason White is number 6. Plunkett's not going to make their list.)
6. Tony Dorsett
5. Charles Woodson
4. Paul Hornung
3. OJ Simpson
2. Roger Staubach
1. Barry Sanders

Both lists are missing Desmond Howard, the only man not on that list to win both the Heisman and Super Bowl MVP.
