Newton, Henne or Grossman

Postby rcibera » Mon Sep 12, 2011 11:29 pm

I'm going to drop Matt Cassel (my other QB is Peyton Manning) and pick up Newton, Henne or Grossman... My gut says Newton but my head says Henne... any suggestions? Thanks... Ralph

I think I would hold on to Cassel in this situation. But if you really want to make a move I would go with Henne.


Help with mine please:

I got on the boards to ask this same question haha. Newton was friggin impressive and should be added on potential alone... My head says go with Henne tho... Or Grossman.... maybe both??? If you go by SOS Miami has the easiest QB schedule for the year with Washington at 4. Carolina is 25th, still don't believe in Newton despite the great QB play.
Eastmont League 10-3 (2nd Seed)
Wenatchee League 9-4 (2nd Seed)
Urine Trouble League 6-7 (6th seed boooya!!!)

If you can pick up 2 out of 3 of those QBs, then I think you can have an effective QB1-by-committee going throughout the season.
Right now, I'd rank them as:
Henne
Grossman
Newton

This ranking is assuming that bye weeks and schedule are not factors.

Well everyone says to stay away from Henne and with good reason. This week will be tough for Newton against G. Bay. Grossman is just too inconsistent.

What is your complete roster please?

I'd keep Cassel, but drop Peyton for one of the three. I myself am in a similar situation in one league where I have both Mannings, but I'm going to hold onto Eli to see what happens and pick up someone else. Also, personally, I'd have Fitzpatrick > Grossman, but I'm not sure where I'd rank him amongst Newton or Henne right now.

since you already have Smith AND DeAngelo I'd stay away from Newton for that reason. Go with blah Henne I guess and I'm not really signing off on that.

Package some players to get some youth.

Offer DeAngelo+LT for a top 5 back if you can.

I was also offered Flacco for Fitz, Vjax or Steve Smith (car)... I'm having a hard time giving up any of those, though I drafted Smith late and was initially planning to use him bye weeks...

Flacco for Steve Smith seems kinda like a no-brainer, considering what an upgrade that is to your starting QB slot.
