    It makes sense to invite these six…although after watching Jordan Lynch’s last game, I’m not sure I would have included him…stats or not…he obviously played against sub-par competition all season long and pretty much stunk with a BCS bowl bid on the line vs Bowling Green…pretty much his only “big” game of the season. I’d go:

    1. Winston
    2. McCarron
    3. Manziel
    4. Williams
    5. Mason
    6. Lynch

      CM, I don’t think that’s fair. There are other guys invited to NY that had 1 bad game. The Bowling Green game was not very good, but the biggest issue of the game was the defense. Lynch was down and was forced to drop back without his top receiver in the lineup against a team allowing only 13 PPG. It was his worst game of the year and he still had 345 total yards and 3 TD. He’s an average statistical performance in the bowl game away from being the only ever 2,000-2,000 game. Lynch gets bashed so much because of his competition, but he also doesn’t have the supporting cast that other players have. He was dominant for his entire career and is finally getting recognition. You don’t go from being the sure #2 to not being invited because of a 345 yard 3 TD game.
