FSU Legend Charlie Ward Gives DB Jalen Ramsey Permission To Wear His Retired No. 17 Jersey During Kickoffs

It caused quite the stir when Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey put a No. 17 jersey over his normal No. 8 to return a kick against Texas State Saturday night in Tallahassee.  Why? Because the No. 17 belonged to former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Charlie Ward and has been retired at FSU for 20 years now. But FSU fans – especially the older ones who had the pleasure...

Readers also gave Lee in the nod with 68 percent of the vote...

All of last year, I had an ideal to write about the curse of the Heisman for quarterbacks once they turn pro. For the most part of my life I remember if a quarterback won the award there was an 80-90 percent chance that they weren’t going to be very good in the NFL. So, I decided to do some research from 1980 forward to see if my theory was true. See below will be all of the Quarterbacks...
