I'm in championship game. Which qb would you go with? Stafford sucked last week, but I got a hunch that Atlanta/Detroit game could be a shootout.

Stafford vs Falcons D... #1 ranked passing O vs 17th ranked passing D.
Roethlisberger vs Bengals D... 10th ranked passing O vs 12th ranked passing D.

Thanks to last week's debacle, I was eliminated from the playoffs in all 3 leagues I own Stafford. Judging by how this season has gone, there is absolutely no way he doesn't go off for 400 yards and 5 tds just to taunt me.
Stafford single handily lost my game for me last week, so I'm playing for 3rd or 4th instead of 1st or 2nd. But I would still go with Stafford.

Stafford is terrible. As an angry owner, I'd go with just about any other option, including
Ben. I was fortunate enough to get Andy Dalton who has helped a ton.
Bench Stafford. Go with Ben.

Stafford has been a disappointment this year primarily because his O-line pass blocking has been bad and Stafford has been sacked and hurried a lot this year more than normal. The Lions are in skid mode right now and it is very tempting to look towards Ben because at least he will get you ok numbers but not great because they run first. But you are in the championship and you need all players on board to produce so since Stafford is at home it will be a high risk/high reward going against the Falcons if you go with him. I've never been a Stafford fan but he can blow it out at times and maybe you will be right in that this will be a shootout. BUT for that to happen his O-line has to keep his ass upright and that is what you have to look at is do the Falcons have a serious pass rush or not so that a shootout may or may not happen. They are not as bad as the Bears O-line pass blocking but they aren't far behind either.
