Matt Ryan vs Matthew Stafford vs Josh Freeman - WHIR

Postby -Heat- » Fri Sep 09, 2011 10:56 am

Matt Ryan vs Chicago
Matthew Stafford vs Tampa Bay
Josh Freeman vs Detroit

I'm leaning towards either Matt Ryan or Matthew Stafford. Stafford has looked amazing this preseason. Ryan has a new weapon in Julio Jones to play with. What do you guys think?

i'd go with stafford
Ryan has the toughest defense matchup, and even though they threw a lot in the preseason they still have turner, i think their pass heavy preseason was to get a good look at julio and to save turner's legs.
Freeman doesn't have the weapons (Megatron/best/bettigrew) stafford has, yet williams and winslow should be a good tandem eventually.

help me?

matt stafford has the easist matchup agaisnt tampa and looked good in preseason

matt ryan might hae to throw more because of teh run defense chicaog has but even then the bears secondary is stingy

freeman is facing a good lions line, but they dont have the secondary either. freeman has targets but is going to be scrambling against that defensive line

i think stafford is safest pick
please help with my team, WHIR

I think all three have equal match ups. Detroit has a stud DL and will be all over Freeman but detroit has a weak secondary. Bears are tough against the run but Melton suchs and the other DT is already dinged up. TB has a solid, but not flashy, all around defnse.

The difference in matchups isn't enough to override starting the best player, and that is Matt Ryan. I just think Ryan has more weapons.

your pretty deep at QBs but i think stafford is the best bet but ryan isnt a bad choice look for jones to have a huge game chi has noone to cover him if they put 2 on white...the guy covering him would be there nickel corner who is listed at 5'9 jones is 6'3. no mater who you play your gonna get a good game with both.

Those are some mighty good QBs to have...

They are all very very close but I think Ryan has the edge over the others.
