General Message Board
Like everyone else, I am pushing for the playoffs and currently in second place at 8-4. I play against a 7-5 team and it'll be close. Here are my options:(pick one and why?)
QB: Matt Ryan @ Chargers(stats say worst secondary but they played good in the secondary the last three weeks and are play better overall at home)
Matt Cassel vs Steeleers(ouch!)
Big Ben @ Patriots(porous secondary and defense has lost a few big impact players-game should be competitive)
RB: played Chris Johnson but need one of:
Frank Gore @ Bills(defense has taken hits regardless of how their last game looked vs Chiefs but Gore is sometimes overrated)
Ronnie Brown @ Rams(terrible run D but split carries with Ricky but will Ronnie look like he did vs Pats because their D is so bad?)
MJDrews @ Houston(defense is okay and Drews seems to excel at run/pass vs average defenses and close game)
Warrick Dunn vs Saints(don't think I need him)
WR:Pick three and why?
Brandon Marshall @ Jets(up against another tough corner)
Andre Johnson @ Texans(see Marshall and last game he had 38 yards with Schaub)
Antonio Bryant vs Saints(consistently inconsistent and had poor 1st game vs Saints)
Santonio Holmes @ Pats(poor secondary and he is pumped to finish strong and has been performing better)
Derrick Mason @ Bengals(consistent but usually few td's and looks like rain)
Vincent Jackson vs Falcons(gets some stats but ??)
Michael Jenkins @ Chargers(will they throw alot??)
Ted Gin Jr./Bess vs Rams(do they throw enough and Ginn gets double coverage?)
Torry Holt vs Dolphins(Avery doubled, Bulger starts and Holt has gotten better stats because of Avery)
TE: Keller vs Broncos(one)
Scheffler vs Jets(not good vs TE and may get looks if Royal toe acts up or Marshall smothered)
Owen Daniels vs Jaguars(may finally get looks even w/o Schaub possibly with and Johnson may be smothered some so more looks)
Explained all hoping you can help because this is big
Thanks and Happy Holidays!
Matthew, your thoughts on starting C. Portis (vs. NYG) or Matt Forte (vs. Minn) ???
I know Portis is hurt but he is such a stud yet playing against the Giants this week ... or Forte against the Vikings ??
