I don't see a major sport that is more team-oriented than football. While one player can make a significant impact, the game is devised in such a way that team performance far outweighs individual effort. A pitcher can single-handedly win (or at least force a tie) a baseball game, and one basketball player can take complete command on the court. You just don't see that in the same way with football. Granted, some players can clearly thrive in both the NFL and NCAA in multiple systems or on multiple teams, but there are much stricter limits as to what a QB can do with a horrible offensive line/bad receivers/no running or what a DB can achieve with no pass rush (which allows the QB to stand in the pocket all day). Yet, there is a strong emphasis placed on individual awards. The Heisman Trophy (possibly the most laughable award in all of sports), NFL MVP, Offensive Player of the Year, etc., all get their fair share of media coverage and players are labeled as "the best" even if they've never been tested in multiple systems. FOCUS: Are individual awards in football pointless (or at least should their significance be diluted)? Are even the most gifted players at the mercy of the 10 other guys around him? What and who are the exceptions, if any?
