    Plunkett had more yards, touchdowns than Joe, and his team was less talented.

    Plunkett lost 4 freaking games in 1970 for chrissakes incl to San Jose St.

    Make no mistake - I admire the guy - overachieved in the NFL.

    Joe lost one game in 1970 to USC - and passed for 526 yards.

    After that - led the Irish to victory over Texas as 14 pt dogs - snapped the Longhorns 30 game win streak.

    It wasn't just between Jim and Joe.

    Are you forgetting Archie Mannings year at Ole Miss?

    And Notre Dame had a better supporting cast than Plunkett had.

    Plunkett had more touchdowns and more total yards.

    Most Heismann QB winners dont lose 4 freaking games.

    Manning should have been the runner-up
