I don't know if I can trust McNabb against the Giants. I'll go with him if Westbrook is healthy.

What other WR should I start besides Johnson and Bowe?

I have three kickers because we are no longer allowed to do waiver wire transactions as of last week. I had Prater but there was a rumor that the Broncos might bring in FA kickers because of how many FGs he's missed. So I picked up Carney....but Tynes is always waiting in the wings for the Giants. I thought I had dropped Prater for Nedney....but I forgot I had an empty spot on my team. So I ended up with three kickers.

Prater

That's exactly who I was thinking. I'm just hoping that Flacco doesn't fuck me like Quinn did. I started Quinn and ended up losing the game that would have got me a 1st round bye.

Oh yeah....just in case anyone cares....this is a paid league and 1st place is $1500.

I had a first round bye last week. I do play this week. Who do you think? Ryan against NO, or Favre against Pittsburg? Ryan has been consistent, and Favre has highs and lows. I'm also hoping Barber plays. Other than that, I'm set.

I feel ya man,all my leagues are cash leagues and this time of year with money on the line gets real interesting.I don't envy your picks at QB whatsoever but still after Donovan getting benched I think he has a major chip on his shoulder and you have to consider he's had 10 days rest.That said,I say good luck and hope to hell a rookie can you lead you to a nice Christmas bonus.

Normally it would be McNabb no question.....but he's playing the Giants. I think if Westbrook is healthy then I'll go with McNabb. He seemed to do great against the Cardinals....and all I really need from him is 250 yards and 2-3 touchdowns.

I have a theory about division games that for the last few years has been fairly consistent.If the first game is lower scoring the 2nd game is usually shoot-out or vice-versa.The first game between these 2 was in the 60's and McNabb had 3 td's but less than 200 yds and Westbrook was held to under 70 total yds.

Just food for thought.

This shit is killing me. The last time I won the championship in my league...it was with McNabb at QB. The Giants are damn good though and your theory is usually correct. It's tough starting a rookie in the playoffs with money on the line though. Stupid fucking Quinn!

I still don't know whether to go with McNabb or Flacco.

And do you guys feel more confident with Colston against the Falcons or Royal against the Chiefs?

If it was me, I would go with McNabb no doubt.

I would also go with Colston, Royal is so hit and miss. Colston has been fairly constant since coming back. He is due for a BIG game

Forte
Bowe
Royal
Johnson

huh? Colston puts up 140 and then puts up an 30 the following week. then puts up 70, and last week 106. one TD in that span. one.

and i don't know where you get this "due for a big game" thing. maybe if he wasn't such a disappointment this season, he'd have had some big games. but instead, he's just a dude i should have dropped to my WW weeks and weeks ago.

The only problem that I have with Royal is that Hillis is probably going to run all over us....so they won't need to pass.

He was hurt..... He is getting targeted more and more, he is due for a big game.

I'm going to go with this lineup.

McNabb
Forte
Lynch
A.Johnson
Bowe
Colston
Carney
Ravens D

There's just something about starting a rookie QB in the playoffs....I can't do it. If McNabb screws me over...then I have to hope that the rest of my team can pick up the slack. I like Royal but I think that the Broncos are going to be too busy running all over us to throw the ball to Royal. I could be wrong though.....oh well. If I win...I win. Hopefully AD and Fitz don't fuck me over too bad.

Thank you Marshawn Lynch and Marques Colston....you just cost me $1500.
