The Heisman Trophy is more prestigious than the Maxwell Award, but the Maxwell has been a far better predictor of future success. In 1997, the Heisman winner was Charles Woodson, while the Maxwell went to Peyton Manning. The 2000 Heisman went to Chris Weinke, while the Maxwell went to Drew Brees. In 2003, Heisman snubbed Eli Manning (the Maxwell Award winner) in favor of Jason White.
