As much I hated the idea, I thought McCarron had it wrapped up after the touchdown pass to Amari Cooper.
I really don't think Winston will get it this year with the sexual assault case looming over him, but the other candidates are all falling at the end.
Mariota had his 2 worst game...

OBJ3, Hill, and Landry, I understand. No one else is close to being ready (if anyone else is close, I guess it is Ego), but last year there were multiple inexplicable decisions.
Who else is expected to declare? And is there any chance for either of the receivers to come back? I'm guessing not...

Well, we are past the halfway point of the season so we should get a decent read on the candidates.
I'd say Mariotta, Winston, and Manziel are the three top candidates.
Bridgewater's numbers are fine, but I don't think they are Heisman worthy. Aaron Murray, Tajh Boyd, and Mett are all out of ...
