Yeah same here, I actually benched him for Delhomme who netted me a whopping -5.5 points. I should still cruise to a win but I could have used the points.
Look at their schedule from here on out, its rough but manageable.
Sun 11/5 at Tampa Bay 1:00 pm - Decent but not the Tampa D of old
Sun 11/12 at Pittsburgh 4:15 pm - tough game, but Vick had is way two weeks ago so manageable
Sun 11/19 Cincinnati 1:00 pm - just plain lousy on defense
Sun 11/26 at Atlanta 1:00 pm - avg 237 yards allowed through the air, 3 TDs in last 3.
Sun 12/3 San Francisco 1:00 pm - allowing something rediculous like avg of 41 points in last 3 losses
Sun 12/10 at Dallas 1:00 pm - tough game but challengable secondary
Sun 12/17 Washington 1:00 pm - playing poorly
Sun 12/24 at NY Giants 1:00 pm - will depend on weather, beatable secondary.
