In college football, there is only one focus for every football team: win.
But, every year, one player is recognized as the best of everyone in the nation, and receives the biggest college football award given: the Heisman Trophy, named after legendary coach John Heisman, is a high honor in college football.
But while Heisman winners may have made names for themselves in college, the NFL is a different playground. The players are bigger, faster, and stronger, the offenses more complex, the defenses forever evolving.
Plus, in the NFL, everyone's on a level playing field; there's no Division II or three teams where you can score 70 points and be done playing by halftime. There are just thirty-two teams, all looking for the main prize: the Super Bowl.
So, what Heisman Trophy winners were not able to establish and make good names for themselves with the big boys on Sundays?
