Video: Justin Bieber Fangirls Weigh In On the Age-old Philadelphia Quarterback Debate

Longtime readers of The700Level.com are likely familiar with our 2010 blockbuster hit "Lady Gaga Fans Answer the Eagles Starting Quarterback Question," in which we questioned Gaga's Little Monsters prior to her show in Philly on the most pressing sports issue of the day on Broad and Pattison. Eye-wear made of cigarettes is hard to scrape from the memory after all.

With fellow teeny-bopper sensation Justin Bieber in Philadelphia this week to perform a sold-out show at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night, we thought it'd be fun to compare the football knowledge of Gaga and Bieber's respective lunatics fans.

Friend of the Level and CSNPhilly.com Flyers writer Sarah Baicker was kind enough to take the bullet for us this time and mingle with the Beliebers to get the hard questions answered. Baicker, being a hockey geek, had to preempt our VERY IMPORTANT EAGLES QUARTERBACK QUESTION, with a question about the mini scandal of last week when the Biebs put his dirty feet on the Chicago Blackhawks logo. That's a big faux pas in the hockey world apparently.

Then something-or-other about the QB battle in Philly is asked and only like one person seems to know what football is, but she also seems to know Mike Vick has committed a bit more than a faux pas in his past. And of course there's a Chase Utley fan.

Credit to the one young lady when asked if she was upset about Bieber stepping on the Chicago Blackhawks logo who responded with the perfect, "I'm a Flyers fan, so." So who cares. Exactly.

And you have to hand it to the fatherly/creepy looking dude at the very end of the clip who is all, "I just come to check out the moms."

No word on whether or not any Philly locals explained that buckets are not the preferred receptacle of micturition at a Philly sporting venue. There are sinks for that, kid.

[stick tap to Baicker for her mic work and a big shout out to camera bro Ben Seidman for finally getting to fulfill his lifelong dream]

Did Corey Davis reveal he wants to be drafted by Eagles?

Did Corey Davis reveal he wants to be drafted by Eagles?

We finally know who the Eagles will select this Thursday in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft.

No need to tune into the draft broadcast, or even visit the Benjamin Franklin Parkway to partake in all of the festivities. Just look at Corey Davis' Twitter feed:


Done deal. Get him a cheesesteak and a midnight green uniform.

But in all seriousness, Davis made an appearance Monday on ESPN and retweeted this tweet to Trey Wingo.

Davis would certainly make an immediate impact on the Eagles' offense. He would join a receiving corps already bolstered in free agency with the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith.

But the Western Michigan product might not be on the board at the 14th overall pick, and the Eagles could look elsewhere on Thursday night.

Place Your Bets: NFL draft first-round odds

Place Your Bets: NFL draft first-round odds

So, you think you know where every player will be selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft?

Well, here are some odds, courtesy of Bovada, to help you gauge your early predictions for the draft in Philly this week.

Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford
We start with McCaffrey, probably the most talked about prospect in Philadelphia entering the first round on Thursday.

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz compared McCaffrey to Darren Sproles. Stanford head coach David Shaw thinks not only would McCaffrey be a good fit in the Eagles' offense, but would also be a great fit in the city of Philadelphia.

Bovada has 2/3 odds of McCaffrey being selected over the 9.5 pick, and has 11/10 odds of him being selected under the 9.5 pick.

CSNPhilly.com's Dave Zangaro has McCaffrey being selected at No. 15 overall by the Indianapolis Colts -- the pick after the Eagles, who are slotted at No. 14 -- in his mock draft.

Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
Fournette has consistently been in the top 10, or sometimes even the top five, of mock drafts.

Many teams covet Fournette for his combination of strength and speed. The LSU product is 6-foot, 240 pounds and ran a 4.51 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine.

Bovada has 2/3 odds of Fournette getting selected over the fourth pick and 11/10 odds of him getting drafted after the fourth pick.

How many RBs/WRs will be selected in first round?
Since Bovada has the same odds for the number of running backs and wide receivers going in the first round, we combined the two.

If you're living under a rock and haven't been following NFL mock drafts since the season ended, there have been three running backs and wide receivers consistently selected in the first round -- WR Mike Williams, WR Corey Davis, WR John Ross, RB Dalvin Cook, RB McCaffrey and RB Fournette.

Here are the identical odds for both position groups:

Over 2.5 with 1/5 odds.
Under 2.5 with 3/1 odds.

How many defensive players will be selected in first round?
This one can get tricky, because you'll have to bank on a few teams getting desperate and drafting some quarterbacks to hit the under.

Over 18.5 with 1/1 odds.
Under 18.5 with 5/7 odds.

How many Alabama players will be selected in first round?
Alabama is the gold standard for NFL players. Every year, the university churns out first-round talent on the opening night of the draft.

In Zangaro's afformentioned mock draft, he has five Alabama players being selected.

Here are the odds:

Over 4.5 with 11/10 odds.
Under 4.5 with 2/3 odds.
