Stop Holding Lamar Jackson's Heisman Against Him

Lamar Jackson GETTY

The reigning Heisman Trophy winner seems to be in a weird place in the eyes of the media this season. Louisville quarterback, Lamar Jackson, was Louisville's first ever Heisman winner, and was one of the favorites in the Heisman race coming into this year.  There has never been back to back Heisman winner's and Jackson would seem to be the easy choice to repeat, but that's not the case.

Many media members have questioned the former Heisman winner's ability to translate his quarterback play to the NFL, some have gone as far to say he'd end up being a wide receiver in the NFL, and others said they wouldn't be surprised if he didn't get drafted.  Remember, Jackson won the Heisman Trophy last season as a quarterback, he's been compared to Michael Vick, and threw for over 350 yards in the Cardinals first two games this season.  So why the change in attitude on Lamar?

Brian Noe thinks last year's Heisman season is working against Jackson, saying that people are expecting him to be better then last season, and if he isn't then he's a fluke.  Noe thinks this does a disservice to Jackson, and he explains why below.
