  1. Guessed right and went Brady last week. I'm going Bradford this week. Not crazy about Brady on the road in Buffalo. No brainer. Brady might get killed this week. Not sure if a no brainer but I am starting Bradford over Brady in W2. For Brady, I can see Buffalo (Rex) grinding the game out and limiting NE's offensive plays as to not expose the young QB (Taylor) to try to win it for them; also, I can see Belichick being Belichick and pulling the ol' reverse-a-roo from W1 and pound the ball with Blount (back) / Lewis and not expose his ancient QB to too many hits. As for Bradford, I can see Philly (Chip) wanting to try to see if he can run 100 plays in their home opener against a hated rival. Bradford's line will be about the same as last week's with a couple more TDs: 35/50/340/3/-1. Brady's line will be: 20/27/260/2/-1. That being said, maybe I am just trying to talk myself into this.
  2. I'm facing the same dilemma and am going with Stafford at home. I went with Rivers over Stafford a few times during the season and am still regretting those decisions. On paper, tonight's game has all the makings of a high scoring game with Rivers chucking the ball all over the field trying to keep up with the Broncos. It's that whole fool me once, fool me twice saying though and I just can't pull the trigger. Funny you say this about the Rivers because I feel the same way regarding general uneasiness with him verses Stafford. That being said, in my league, Rivers has more overall points than Stafford (20% more! -- huge performance league) and if you look at the week by week comparisons between the two, the difference in each week's points is actually pretty small for the weeks in which Stafford outscores Rivers; while on the weeks Rivers outscores Stafford, Rivers WAY outscores him. (Hope that made sense!) Net-net: it seems like Rivers has more upside. That all being said, I am scared spitless that SD uses the same "stall" strategy as they did in SD in week 10. To go big or go safe, that is the question. Ugh. To give full disclosure on my part, I also had Rivers last year as my main QB and he torpedoed my season. That creeps into my over thinking as well...subconsciously I believe. Probably can flip a coin and either will be great. My rationale is Stafford has a higher floor, is playing at home and Detroit won't stall to keep the opponent off the field. Rivers has a short week, playing away, team may try to slow things down (maybe not though). What does that all mean? Probably zip. Thanks, Nasty, Herb, and Junkie, for the banter. Agree with the consensus: Stafford is the safer choice but it wouldn't surprise anyone if Rivers has one of those crazy pinball games that doubles up Stafford's points.
