I can't believe that someone with Manning would still have Grossman as a backup. He could easily be traded to improve somewhere else on the team.

Easier said than done my friend. If Peyton is playing well, no defense in the NFL can stop that Indy offense. As teams saw last year, the only possible chance you have at beating Indy is to go after Manning all game long. It's the way both the Chargers and the Steelers beat them last year, but if you can't generate a good enough pass rush to get after Manning, you're going to struggle big time to slow him down.


Pats laid the blueprint for rushing Manning some years ago - come straight up the middle. It'll be interesting to see if Peyton can win there next week. He always scares the crud out of me but then the Pats D does what it does.
Personally, I'm hoping for a snowstorm!

I don't think the NE defense is as good as it has been in years past when they beat the Colts. I don't think they are going to be able to generate enough pressure on Manning to get him out of sync. If you go after Manning and can't get to him, it is worse than not even trying at all. Manning played well last year against the Pats in NE going 28-37 for 321 yds, 3 TDs and 1 INT and they won 40-21. I think it'll be more of the same this year.

I can probably help answer the question as I am in the same situation in one of my leagues. I have Manning in my big $150 league (with $2 for every transaction move). This is our 3rd year and we also play baseball and basketball together. Since the buy in is high and there is money at stake, we decided to have a league with no trades. In the past some questionable trades have gone through and lots of argument has occurred whether a trade was fair or not. It got to the point were every trade was gettting rejected and it would cause eveyone involved to get mad. So, we just decided to not have any trades. Also, the team in 2nd place has basically begged me to drop my backup as he doesn't have a good QB. Further reeason not to drop him.
