I doubt any ROOKIE QB is worth starting, unless you are desperate or in a very large league.

Realy, what was his highest point total. Did he outscore the kicker?

Not ideal, but I'm ecstatic about him going to Cincinnati the following week.

Hasn't Warner been sacked like 13 times in the last two games? Putting Eli behind that offensive line is one of the poorest decisions I've seen them make. I *still* think Warner is the better QB here. A rookie in this situation is just going to get flustered more easily whereas a veteran would have been in this situation before. Atlanta is going to feast on him. The rest of their schedule is no picnic either.

Warner is not exactly among the most reliable QBs in the league in avoiding sacks. Not to mention that Warner hangs onto the ball about as well as a greased pig. Manning may turn the ball over some because of rookie mistakes, but I doubt he will be much worse than Kurt at hanging onto possession of the football.
