Am I falling into the "Night game" hype for players...

Postby LS2throwed » Wed Oct 11, 2006 4:16 pm

By even THINKING of starting matt leinart vs the Bears...im not expecting greatness, but its always a surprise, 200 yds, two td's, and an int is not out of the question....


I just cant help but to think since its a big stage, and leinart has good football knowledge with the chance of putting up multiple td games i was thinking of taking the risk...my other option is brees vs the eagles so its not like thats any easier

I see Leinert's #s more like 17/39, 140 yds 0Tds, 3 INTs. He will have a good 1st drive of each half and thats it. Did you see Hasselbeck on Sunday night football against the Bears. He started out good, but once the Bear rush started he looked like a lost rookie out there. If you are banking on Leinert helping you this week you are in for some trouble.

Dont even think about it. He's only a rookie and he's facing the best defense in the NFL. Expect negative points if they are allowed in your league.

I fall into that every great once in awhile. Although, in Leinhart's case, that wouldn't be one of them.

Right now, I don't think I'd start anyone against the Bears. No one has been successful against them this season. Look how Seattle got shut down.

Your prediction is actually lookin pretty darn good. 9/11, 83 yards, 2 TDs. ;-D I hope Rex can get it together and just 60 yards passing to Muhammad (58 more).
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Leinart put up more points than Brees? It seems to me that Brees would've put more points up. 3 TDs, more yards thrown. Brees had 2 interceptions but Leinart fumbled so the difference in TOs wouldn't have much of impact if you are penalized for turnovers.

Looks like Brees was the better choice. Brees had 31 points to Leinart's 25 in one of my leagues.
