Ryan just had a bad week1, and that shouldn't make him any less than Kolb (Kolb was just okay on week 1 anyway)
some bust of the week, Mendenhall, Gore, Roddy, Blount, but i doubt anyone will trade Mendenhall for M.Tolbert or C Benson. i had Roddy that only get 6.1 point, and D.Bess with 9.2,but that doesn't change Roddy's WR1 position.
week 1 is just 1 week, sit tight, and watch how it goes, it's more important to get potential waiver than doubt your starter ability
however, if you are only talking about week2, and you have very strong feeling about Kolb, then go for it.
I have both Kolb and Ryan along with Eli Manning, but I think I'm going to put Kolb in. Not because I think Kolb is better, but because of the matchup. Ryan has a tough secondary to go against. Philadelphia's run defense couldn't even stop Cadillac Williams, so I figure Atlanta is going to give it Turner more.
Funny that this is a week 1 thread but is already being recycled for week 2.
I also have these exact 2 QBs. I have a feeling that Matt Ryan has a huge game at home after being embarrassed in week 1, but at the same time, I acknowledge that Kevin Kolb is the safer play against a Redskins D that did hold Eli in check, but always does. Matt Ryan had severe home/road splits last year and I think that may continue this year, so Kolb will likely get thrown in there when he has road matchups that don't otherwise appear favorable, but for the most part I like Ryan between these two.

I think this is a rare week where Kolb is safer, but Ryan has more upside. I assume most of us dual Ryan/Kolb owners started Ryan in week 1 and are likely 0-1 as a result (like me). This gives this decision a lot of gravity. I'm sure I won't make my decision until I absolutely have to and will listen to the arguments for the other guy the whole time. For now I'm leaning Ryan, but yeah, it's a coin flip.
