I decided to take a quick break from my finals preparation and look up some statistics. What I found was kind of interesting. You be the judge:
|Charles Woodson 1997||vs.||Eric Berry 2008|
|7||INT Return Yards||265|
|5||Tackles for Loss||8.5|
I realize that Berry is a Safety and Woodson is a Cornerback, but they’re in the same category for the Thorpe Award so I feel they’re comparable enough.
Also, Woodson did return punts and averaged about 8 yards per return and had a TD. He also had 12 receptions and 3 TDs on offense. Both had a negligible number of rushing yards.
I hate the Heisman.
