The Daily Q: Thoughts On Patrick Peterson's Heisman Pose?

One Great Season

Welcome to the newest feature on One Great Season, called The Daily Q.

Each weekday morning I'll ask a question on Twitter and re-post on Facebook, and compile the replies into one blog post here on OGS later in the day. I'll also look around for relevant quotes by columnists or from sports-minded friends via email.

If you want to join the fun, please follow me on Twitter @onegreatseason and look for a new Daily Q every weekday morning.

Today's question: What did you think of Patrick Peterson's Heisman pose during Saturday's defeat of West Virginia? Weak, funny, cool?

@TheRealPSJ: "PP needed some instruction from Desmond Howard, other than that I'm ok with him doing it."

@kevingearymts: "Heisman pose was WEAK. New Rule: in order to do the Heisman pose people must know who you are!"

@jordanpmitchell: "Patrick Peterson striking the heisman pose ... was dumb. Someone doing that 4 weeks into the season doesn't deserve it."

Randy Rosetta, LSU beat writer (via email): "How about all three: Cool because he did it well, funny because it captured the kid's gregarious personality so well and weak because it got flagged and led to WVU's only sustained touchdown drive of the night."

Bruce Sholl (via email): "If he's going to make a Heisman pose, he should do it after making a huge play against Florida or Alabama, not West Virginia. What lame grandstanding."

My Take: Nothing against Peterson as a football player. He's definitely a great talent who will make a lot of money in the NFL. And if he continues to dominate games, he'll earn a seat in New York in December. But if sports are entertainment, then copying someone else is a weak move. Desmond Howard's stunt was original and spontaneous, and though Peterson says his gag also was unplanned, that it was done before makes it at least partly manufactured, as well as entirely unoriginal. Plus he did it after dropping the ball.
