HEISMAN PROMOTIONAL MAILERS 2011

New, 194 comments

Robert Griffin the 3rd is both a legitimate Heisman contender for 2011 and a gentleman so classy you must, by contract, include the "3rd" when discussing him on any occasion. You never know. You might say, "Robert Griffin had a great game," and someone will say, "Oh, did you mean my cat Robert Griffin, Jr," and you'd say "No, I mean Robert Griffin the 3rd, not your cat," and then you'd have a nice laugh because your friend had a cat named Robert Griffin, Jr, and because you'd made friends with a real live insane person. 

Baylor is stumping for Griffin, and sending out these cards in the mail to prospective Heisman voters.

(Via.) It's not bad, but we would question the wisdom of automatically planting the notion of Griffin placing third in Heisman voters heads. "Oh, they're not that dumb or pliant," you say. We point you in the direction of the long list of Heisman winners throughout history, and then ask you to reconsider your statement HAHAHA GINO TORETTA. 

On that note, we decided to offer up our own suggestions for Heisman mailers for possible 2011 quarterback candidates. Feel free to download the images and use them yourselves, interested schools. We offer this artwork for free, and consider it a public service.
