Peyton vs. The Cafe: Week 3

Postby Matthias » Sun Sep 17, 2006 5:08 pm

A week or two ago me and DGroundhog were saying that the problem with comparing the VBD # for Manning was that he was so consistent and the players who came close to him varied. So sure there will be one or two QBs close to him (or even better) but the tough part of it is picking them pre-season or even week to week. So I have a friendly tracking going on with this with someone else here and I thought I'd open it up to the Cafe and the rest of the field.

So each week I'll post a thread letting people vote for a QB to start that week that can be anybody except Peyton and I'll track the Cafe's choice vs. Peyton's production. Standard scoring (using fractional scoring):

1 pt - 10 yards rushing
1 pt - 25 yards passing
6 pts - rushing TD
4 pts - passing TD (although I'm tempted to say 6 since I do play in leagues where all TD's are 6 pts but we'll err on the side of being against Peyton).
2 pts - passing or rushing 2-pt conversion
-2 pts - INTs
-4 pts - FUMs lost

If you think this is a stupid idea, great. Ignore the thread. If you want to prove that Manning has, at best, 3rd round value, this is your chance to do it.

As far as the first two weeks, I'll just average Manning's production over the other 12 for the rest of a normal 14-week FF regular season. And do the same for the Cafe's choices.

I'm honestly curious to see how this turns out.

McNabb

I have him on my team, and he has done great.

It also helps that even with the lead, phily seems to continue to pass so even against a team like SF, there shouldnt be worries that they will be running alot.

Alright. Barring a last-minute rush to the polls, it looks like this week The Cafe's representative is Donovan @ the 49ers.

I hope that I don't get laughed off the board, but I kind of like Favre at Detriot.

I voted for McNabb, but I am a little concerned that SF's offense won't be able to keep it close enough to make Philly throw it. I know SF has put up some big numbers so far, but they have played two very mediocre defenses.
