2016 Awards Watchlist: The Brodie Parker McCoker Award

12 Jul , 2016  

To kick off the 2016 season, we’re introducing a slough of awards for the year — and with them, our preseason watchlist for each.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to get the latest!  Today, we present:

The Brodie Parker McCoker Game Manager of the Year Award

Scraggly mop of frat bro hair optional.

Brandon Harris (LSU) — Leonard Fournette is going to get Derrick Henry level carries this year, which means Harris only needs to step it up when/if Fournette gets shut down (ahem, 2015 vs. Bama). His 2015 numbers look like they’re from a Doug Nussmeier led offense: 148-of-276 passes (53.6%) for 2,158 yards (7.8 YPA) with 13 touchdowns and 6 interceptions.

Some Dude (Stanford) — This offense has Christian Friggin’ McCaffrey. We didn’t even bother looking up the quarterback’s name.

Greyson Lambert (QB, UGA) — Lambert isn’t a playmaker, much less a game-changer, and yet Georgia fared well last year. That’s pretty much the epitome of a Game Manager.

(QB, Alabama) Be it Cooper Bateman or newcomer Blake Barnett, one thing is for sure…they are just the next player up in a LONG-ASS lineage of Game Managers.
