Come on people, if you can't answer his question don't. If you're in a two QB league, there simply aren't any starters on the WW.
I don't buy the McMahon thing- grab Detmer. There are two possibilities I see.
The most likely- the Eagles are struggling to make the playoffs with the Giants, Cowgirls, and newly emerged Redskins in what's turning out to be a very tough division. McNabb plays even if he's in a wheelchair, and if he's flat out, the Eagles need someone who has proven he can play- that's Detmer.
The other option is they've clinched the division early and give McNabb some much-needed time off to rest up for the playoffs. They STILL want to win, with a bye and homefield on the line. Again, go with the proven guy, Detmer.
Really, I don't see much chance of the 2nd possibility, and unless McNabb is literally declared medically unfit to play, he'll be starting, meaning you'll be playing him, even if for only half a game. But if you're looking to grab the guy who plays if McNabb is declared out, I think that's Detmer.
