Farve is playing against washington in washington. And if you don't know where Trent is playing and who against then you need to crawl out from underneth the rock you been in.

So Farve or Green?

Personally I'd go with Favre. The Green Bay offense has Ahman Green, but it's still about what Favre can do. Washington has a solid D, but with Sherman calling the plays in teh last 2 games Green Bay has played phenomenally on O.

As for Trent, yeah he's going against a terrible D, but assuming AS has figured out that running the ball works best, Green won't be picking up huge numbers. At least I don't think you'll see him throwing for a lot of TD's. Anyway, once we get inside the 20 and 10 the first option is give it to Priest, where as I think with Green Bay they'd rather Favre make a play for fear of Green fumbling the ball.

On a side note, I think if Green does have a huge day, we will lose this game. If we abandon the running game because of what can be had through the air (which I won't be at all surprised if Saunders decides to do), it will be a track meet, and we'll lose it. We need ball control, ball control, ball control. Rest the D and keep Manning on the sideline.

I should also add that Favre has a good tandem at wideout in Walker and Driver, plus a decent pass catching tight end in Franks. Green really only has Gonzo who catches TD passes.

Both should do fine today... Favre has more weapons.

I would probably go with Green. The Chiefs know that the Colts secondary is awful, and instead of running it down their throat, like we think they should, they are going to try prove they can pass wildly.

Just a guess though.

If you do not start Green today, when would you? You have to figure this would be one of his biggest days.

I would go with Green. Morton, Kennison, and Gonz are due for some TDS, and we are playing the worse pass D in the league.

Trent 27/24 for 389 yards, 3 TDs and no INTs

Favre 20/33 for 289 yards 1 TD and 3 INTs

You had to figure Trent was going to have a game.
