Best and worst jerseys for a fan
I spent most of the 2012 NFL season visiting stadiums on game day. I learned a few things: 1. Tailgating has jumped to heights unimaginable only a few years ago; 2. The sport of Cornhole now ranks somewhere between the NHL and MLB in popularity; 3. Fans who go to NFL games wear their teams' colors.
That last one was especially striking. I grew up going to games populated by rabid fans, but barely half were in team colors. It simply wasn't a consideration.

Listed in ascending order, here are 10 playmakers to watch for the 2021 Heisman. All but two -- Alabama's Bryce Young and Clemson's D.J. Uiagalelei -- will be at least three years removed from high school after the season, and thus eligible for entry into next year's NFL draft.
