Romo @ NYJ on Sunday Night Football or Kevin Kolb vs CAR in his Arizona Cardinals debut
I know the Jets have the best defense, but I don't see the Cowboys being able to move the ball on the ground, and I think the Cowboys will have to air the ball out. The only thing that scares me is that if this turns into one of those low scoring slugfests. After watching the Saints-Packers game, I think this could turn otu being a higher scoring game than normal.
And as good as Kolbs match up is, I could see the Cards running the ball a lot if they take an early lead.

Thanks for the input on mine. This week I am starting Romo AND Beanie because of what you jsut said. I think Zona will score early and get a lead, and then leave it to Wells to run it out. It is only week one, so pretty much everything is speculation, but I definitely think Romo is the safer choice. I don't think they can totally rely on that running game (O-line is fugged up...lets hope they can give Romo some protection!)
I forsee Kolb doing good and rising up as somewhat of a sleeper this year ... but for week 1 I would go with Romo as well. Not only because its the safer bet, but because going against this Jets defense he will be completing a lot of shots to J. Witten (great endzone option) and screens to Felix.
And yea, I think Wells will do great and run a lot this week as well!
I'd have to vote Romo. It's tough going against the Jets, but I see him spreading it around. I would need a little more proof from Kolb at this point, but I think he'll end up being a great QB later in the season.
Romo. He's an elite QB - and I don't overthink matchups with those guys. Let's see how Kolb works this offense in real-game situations before giving him the nod over a guy like Romo (regardless of the matchup). Besides, even though the defense Kolb is facing is far inferior to the one Romo is facing, the game situation might not be that great. It's hard to see the Cardinals needing to throw and/or take risks to win this game. A conservative offensive game plan is likely in order.
I can see your concern here. I personally don't like Romo against the Jets but Kolb in a new system if scary as well. That being said due to matchups i would go with Kolb on a coinflip. Romo does have some weapons but i like the Jets defense in that game too much. As for Kolb, I see Fitzgerald and Wells having a good fantasy game in that as well.

Credible source here.
Romo will have a decent game. Not likely to put up 30 points but maybe a solid 15 points. You could risk it and go for Kolb and you might score more but that's a new QB in a new system with lots of new players in it. Not to mention Kolb isn't that experience.
Fantasy record last 2 seasons: 18-12 (HtH) PPW: 95 (league average 90) Championships: 1
I would go with Romo. Kolb has had only 7 starts so and is still unproven. Remember last year at this time, when everyone was predicting he would be a fantasy stud? How did that work out? it might this year but I am a bit leary.
