The kid has a great arm, he’s smart and has excellent character. He’s also a dual threat and came out of nowhere to win the Heisman this year. Now he’s rocketing up draft boards.

Idle chatter: Bengals lossHolmgren's meltdown

Did Houston cook the Bengals golden goose last weekend? Zac Jackson: Yes and no. Is it cooked? It sure seems that way.
