The man with the golden arm

The candidates for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award were announced a few days ago. Twenty two players are on the list.

Not Johnny Unitas.

You would think that one of either Colt McCoy, Sam Bradford or Tim Tebow would win it. Well maybe not Tebow. You know, the whole graven images thing. But the award has a recent contrarian history. Out of the last seven quarterbacks to win the Heisman, Carson Palmer was the only one who also won the Unitas in the same year.

So it's conceivable that a guy like Todd Reesing or Max Hall could win it without even being invited to the Heisman ceremony.
