WHIR Drew Brees vs. Mathew Stafford

Postby Jeff Kearns » Mon Sep 12, 2011 10:24 pm

Ok, I know this may sound like a no brainer, but hear me out.

I got Drew Brees coming off a 400 yard game going against a tough Bears D that shut Matt Ryan down.

And I got Mathew Stafford, who has tremendous upside, coming off a 300 yard game, goin' against a Chiefs secondary that will be without Eric Berry.

What ya'll think?

Stafford has a better matchup, but Brees is Brees, and he dismantled a better defense in the Packers. Toss up, but I say Stafford.

This is tougher than it appears.

IMO, the only reason Drew Brees threw for that much is because he was playing catch-up with Rodgers. I have a feeling that if the Saints are playing with a lead, they will go to the running game more for clock management. There's a good chance that may happen against the Bears.

The Lions, on the other hand, will be one of the more pass-happy offenses in the league this season and facing the Chiefs that got obliterated by Ryan Fitzpatrick is just a tasty matchup written all over it.

The safe pick is definitely Brees, but I think this is a great week to play Stafford.

I'll say Brees, and I'm a Lions fan too. The man's a stud. Look at the bright side though, that's a nice problem to have choosing between the two. :)

Normally Brees is a no brainer, but he is going up against a chicago defense that stifled a supposedly solid atlanta offense by not allowing a single offensive touchdown.

However, the Saints offense is obviously much different than the falcons and Brees tends to get his points no matter what.

Go with Brees, but it's a close one.

Thanks guys.

Yeah this is definitely a tough one.

I'm kinda of leaning to Stafford since Brees' receivers are hurt, but I feel like if I bench Brees he is gonna make me pay for it.
