You're joking right? He may not even play.

Hard to be a sleeper from the bench. Actually, whoever plays between Garrard and Leftwitch are going to have a hard time against TEN next week. Their pass D is going unnoticed, but is pretty solid.

Johnson doesn't have to throw for over 300 yards to be a successful sleeper pick this week. 200 - 225 yards and 2 TD passes would be a good start IMO.

Exactly.

I hope he stinks tonight so my opponent passes on him.

Let's all revisit this one after next week! B-)

I think the yards will be there, but not the TDs. They don't really have a deep threat to get in the end zone through the air, and they don't pass very much in the red zone.

Bingo. I have a feeling that it'll be 2 TDs with 200 or so yards, with the running game making a few more TDs. Great sleeper in that he's not a marquee QB, but I think he'll miss Grossman numbers due to his and the team's style.

Exactly. He's like Roethlisberger. He doesn't make the dumb mistakes or forced passes that can lose your NFL team the game


you must have missed the raiders game yesterday.


Or every single Pittsburgh game this season besides the KC one.

marcus robinson is a pretty good red zone target and williamson can be a deep threat.

I played some pop warner QB and I think I could throw for 300 and 3 td's against this defense.
at least this is what I am hoping for because McNabb is one bye!!!


I'm not sure when the last time Brad Johnson threw for 300, but it wasn't this year and it wasn't last year.
