I'm waffling between starting CHI or STL in Week 1 of my $$$ league. I don't really think either is a bad pick, but I just cannot decide which is the better 1. (leanin towards STL. I don't necessarily think they'll be as good as they were in '03, but I also don't think they'll be as bad as they were last year.)

Homer though I am, I would go with STL over CHI. SF seems to be in for a tough year unless Ratay pulls a rabbit out of his hat.

great take on Rattay from the SF Chronicle this morning...

"Bill Walsh once said of Steve DeBerg, "He's just good enough to get you beat." DeBerg was a better quarterback than Rattay."

I'm now leaning STL given the way this thread has gone... deliberation is the best thing we've got in the absense of high quality stats...

How many TDs did Miami QBs throw to the opposition last year? 8? 12?

Den @ MIA is a better option than Was @ CHI IMO - rookie QB or not.

STL @ SF is still the money pick though...

I'm inclined to agree...My only misgivings being:

1.) When Rattay was healthy last year (which admittedly was like a game and a half), he really wasn't that bad.
2.) If things get too out of hand too early I fear "garbage time" may hurt the Rams #s.

That bein' said, I'm pretty sure I'm goin the Rams Route Also. (Their D actually looked pretty good vs. Detroit) <INSERT JOEY HARRINGTON DISCLAIMER HERE>

Didn't realize the Rams were in the equasion, Duder. I like them better in week one. If the Rams start to roll they won't stop. And the 9ers are suseptible to being rolled on.

The Dude also did not realize they were in the equation until he realized they were on the wire... like I said - no fantasy prep at all this year.

Its a good thing that I at least knew my stuff enough to get Terrell Davis and Jerry Rice with my top 2 picks. My team pwns! B-)

Miami did throw several INT's for TD's...I believe it was 8 last year. They were the ones to play against. I don't think Frerotte is as bad as Fiedler or Feeley, though. Denver will still do well in week 1.

I am sticking with STL. I could see them running up the score like Indy did on Houston last year and then just blitzing like crazy.

True.

In addition Bears DEF, is a great pick in same game.

They are going to completely dominate WASH's inept offense.

Book it.
