What he did to Maryland's defense was ridiculous and it should be noted that Maryland's defense typically is not a bad defense. They run a solid 3-4 and do a really good job typically of stopping the opponent.
Johnny Manziel - Bye
Marcus Mariota - Mariota's drop in my ranking is a result of him not rushing as much as he used to and his passing being less efficient than the other QB's in my rankings. He's got a big opportunity to put on a show this Saturday against Washington. Boyd has been a more efficient passer than Mariota but Mariota has accounted for more points, 21 touchdowns to 18. Also Mariota has not thrown an interception where as Boyd has thrown two.
Tajh Boyd - Boyd had his best game of the season on Saturday against Syracuse. Since the NC State game his games performances have gotten better and better. Right now I'm in wait and see mode with him. In two weeks after he plays FSU we'll know whether he is a legit contender or not.
Lache Seastrunk - In his first game against a BCS opponent Seastrunk had his best game of the season. The numbers he is putting up are absolutely ridiculous. But like Boyd I'm in wait and see mode with Seastrunk. We will not know if he is a legit Heisman candidate until later in the season when Baylor gets into the meat of its schedule. November is the month that is make or break for Heisman candidates and Seastrunk will have several games in November to make his case for the award.
Derek Carr - If any of the guys who I have listed above get injured, begin to perform poorly, or if their team begins to lose Carr will be able to jump into the Heisman conversation. In the meantime he's going to have to continue to put up 300-400 yards a game and throw 4-5 touchdowns a game and hope that somebody from the list above falls out of the race.
Bishop Sankey - I'm not giving up on Sankey yet. He had a solid game in a loss to Stanford and was key in Washington's come back effort. He's got another shot against Oregon this weekend to make a name for himself on the national stage.
You would have Lache Seastrunk in the mix and not Bryce Petty, seriously?
