Roethlisberger gets Heisman support



Cincinnati Enquirer

USA Today sports analyst Danny Sheridan came out with his odds for the Heisman Trophy on Monday, and lo and behold, favored at even money were Miami quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Mississippi's Eli Manning.

"I'm saying in a fair world, taking out politics, these are the odds that should be," Sheridan told the Enquirer. "That's a realistic Heisman picture, and no one has the (guts) to say it. The best two quarterbacks out there, who embody all the things I think a Heisman Trophy winner should be, are Ben and Eli Manning."

The Heisman will be announced Saturday. Ballots are due Wednesday.

Sheridan called Roethlisberger the best quarterback as a junior he's seen in 25 or 30 years.
