Drew Brees announces he’ll play in the NFL next year..would you rather have him, Tom Brady or Philip Rivers?

-Brady is 43 years old and a free agent; Brees just turned 41; and Rivers is 38 years old. If you’re a team looking for a QB, which one do you want most?

We’ll just call the 10-point loss to Purdue as a bad loss and the 28-20 loss to Iowa as an acceptable loss to an undefeated team. What changes if those other results go Nebraska’s way, though? They did begin the 2016 season 7-0…
