I'll take Harvard to win (but Yale +12)

And Patriots (-7.5)

I also like Hobart over Ithica (not pictured).

My Top 5 QBs Right Now

Former Texas QB and NFL backup (CBS analyst as well) Chris Simms was on Felger & Mazz this afternoon where he discussed his Top 5 QBs.

CHRIS SIMMS' TOP 5 QBs:

1. Aaron Rodgers
2. Andrew Luck
3. Ben Roethlisberger
4. Russell Wilson
5. Peyton Manning



RICH KEEFE'S TOP 5 QBs:

1. Aaron Rodgers
2. Tom Brady
3. Peyton Manning
4. Andrew Luck
5. Philip Rivers


And who could forget...

RON JAWORSKI'S BEST QB OF ALL-TIME

1. Colin Kaepernick



But I don't get Brady not being in someone's Top 5.  He doesn't have to be 1, doesn't have to be 2.  But outside the Top 5?  Rapelisberger?  Russell Wilson?  And if you don't like old guys, Peyton Manning?  I'm lost.   Simms was spewing stuff about talent.  The most talented guys aren't always the best.  Jeff George.  Etc.  Makes for good talk though I guess.

Rookie WRs Have Been Strong, To Quite Strong This Year

We knew it was a loaded WR class in this past draft and these guys have not disappointed.

Five were drafted in the 1st round..

Sammy Watkins, 4th overall, Buffalo Bills
Mike Evans, 7th overall, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Odell Beckham Jr., 12th overall, New York Giants
Brandin Cooks, 20th overall, New Orleans Saints
Kelvin Benjamin, 28th overall, Carolina Panthers

Evans is on a streak of 3 straight games with at least 100 yards receiving and a TD... something that hasn't happened since Randy Moss back in 1998.  Evans is currently 10th in the league in rec. yards.

Benjamin is the #1 WR for Carolina, 13th in the NFL in yards to go along with 8 TDs.

Watkins, Beckham, and Cooks have all fought through some injuries (Cooks now on IR) but have all shown flashes of being just nasty.

Non 1st rounders who look good...

Jordan Matthews, 42nd overall, Philadelphia Eagles
Martavis Bryant, 118th overall, Pittsburgh Steelers
Davante Adams, 53rd overall, Green Bay Packers
John Brown, 91st overall, Arizona Cardinals
Allen Robinson, 61st overall, Jacksonville Jaguars
Allen Hurns, undrafted, Jacksonville Jaguars

Matthews is turning into a beast in Philly, Bryant got a late start but slapped together 4 straight ridiculous games, John Brown has been a slick option out in Arizona.  Robinson was the leading receiver in Jax before getting hurt, Hurns also had some monster games.  Adams is showing promise in that high scoring attack up in Green Bay.

That's 11 WRs who have been productive this year.  And here some other guys I still like (more than say an Aaron Dobson or Josh Boyce...)

Marqise Lee, 39th overall, Jacksonville Jaguars
Jarvis Landry, 63rd overall, Miami Dolphins
Donte Moncrief, 90th overall, Indianapolis Colts
Taylor Gabriel, undrafted, Cleveland Browns
