A Real Ace
I am disappointed that U.S. Open winner Rafael Nadal was not on the cover (The U.S. Open from Hell, Sept. 20). Nadal became the youngest man to win a career Grand Slam in the Open era, while the Patriots did nothing other than, as the cover says, "take care of business (as usual)."
After watching Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor's flubbed passes on YouTube, I attributed his mistakes to cockiness; but having read Austin Murphy's informative article (The Scarlet Leader, Sept. 20), I now understand that Pryor's nerves are to blame. "Paralysis by analysis" is a great way to characterize it. Still, I think Pryor needs to better analyze situations. Too often I've seen him throw into double coverage. In those situations he should paralyze his urge to pass.

So Murphy believes that Pryor is the man to beat for the Heisman? What about Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson? I thought the Heisman goes to the best player, not the player whose team is higher ranked.
