FBS MVP Candidates-QB

Here are the top 5 candidates for our QB of the Year Award. These players have great stats to back them up, but also meant the most to their team in piling up these numbers. Expect fluxuations as the season progresses. These players are not numbered in any order, and you will have a chance to vote in polls that we will place here on the blog next week.

1. Denard Robinson-Michigan
Shoelace has been carrying the Wolverines on his back all season long. His average of 182 yards per game through the air don't mean much, but when you add his rushing totals of 172 per game and 6 scores, to go with his 4 passing TDs, you have to realize what Robinson means to the Wolverines right now. Definite Heisman front runner at this point, but here comes Big 10 play, and remember, we thought that Tate Forcier would be beating the world this time last season.

2. Cameron Newton-Auburn
And to think that Florida could still have this guy. Damn that Tim Tebow...
Newton is ruhing for 125 yards a game with 5 scores, and is averaging 170 through the air. He has scored a total of 14 TDs in 4 games, and he has saved Auburn's ass big time with his drives from behind. Auburn would not be 4-0 with any other QB taking the snaps right now.

3. Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State
Zac who? That has to be what people in Stillwater are thinking with Weeden taking the snaps. He has been amazing this season in Dana Holgerson's offense, averaging 325 yards per game with 11 TDs against just 2 picks. This guy has serious moxey, and The Cowboys are going places with him, and his partner in crime, Kendell Hunter.

4. Brian Moniz-Hawaii
Moniz has been stellar in keeping Hawaii afloat in 2010. He was having a monster of a game against USC before going down to injury, but he has been incredible ever since, averaging 334 yard per game with 11 TDs. He is the key to keeping Hawaii relevant in 2010, and his output could earn Hawaii a bowl birth.

5. Russell Wilson-NC State
Wilson has been a beast in 2010, and has completely taken the reins of this offense. His TD/INT ratio is 11/1 and he ran for a score against Georgia Tech last weekend to put the game away. He may wind up being one of the first QBs to go in the NFL draft next spring.

6. Colin Kaepernick-Nevada
I had to break my own rule of 5 to add Kaepernick on. He is a treat to watch as he runs the pistol to perfection, and his passing game is coming along in leaps and bounds, as his rushing game was always stellar. He has scored 15 TDs in just 4 games, and is becoming one of my favorite players in the game.

Honorable Mention
Terrence Cain-Utah...Has kept the Utes together during Jordan Wynn's injury related absence from the lineup...will give up the job when Wynn's thumb is better.

Dan Persa-Northwestern...Persa has the Wildcats at 4-0 and climbing in the PRS. He is very productive in the spread read option offense and his TD/Pick ratio is 8/1.

Ricky Stanzi-Iowa...Stanzi is having a solid season, but the loss at Arizona has hurt him slightly. He is working with a banged up RB corps, so people are more likely to key in on the pass.

Ryan Colburn-Fresno State...Colburn has kept the Bulldogs from diving into an offensive black hole after the loss of Ryan Matthews after last season. Colburn could be the most productive Fresno QB in some time, and there have been some good ones that have come through there.

Andrew Luck-Stanford...Luck has been a stud for Jim Harbaugh. He is stamping his star status every weekend, and is only going to get better. He is living proof that Jake Locker is not the best QB in the conference.
