depends on your matchup.

i'll go Henne if you have a hard matchup
go Cutler if you have a easy matchup

seems Henne had great potential by seeing how he played in week1, but you never know if he can keep it up, and he do have bigger chance to bust than cutler
Cutler is good QB, despite he might not get you 30+ points, but at least you know he will provide you with the basic points so you don't get Big Ben week1 kinda score.

I'm leaning Cutler. I think Orton can have a fair game against the Bengals, but not as good as Cutler against the Saints. Henne is going up against a stronger D in Houston, so I wouldn't expect anything significant from him this week.

Hope I'm not too late to help.

Ok guys ... Im gonna throw a wrench into this one ... I just saw that someone in my league dropped Sam Bradford, so he's available on the waiver wire. What do you guys think of picking him up and dropping either Orton or Henne, and how do you like his match up against the Giants in week 2?

Go with Cutler, win or not, the game will be a shootout and New Orlean's pass defense looked awful. He is generally good for a couple TD passes.

Chad Henne had one good game, wasn't even enough for me to consider adding him. Houston's D also looks good, might even be better than New Englands. As good as Orton's matchup might look, Denver always seems to look to run first and Lloyd got injured in that Raiders game, that whole Qb situation in my opinion is affecting the entire team.

I'd lean towards Cutler here. I don't trust Henne yet and I'm not sure how Denver is going to really have to throw against the Bengals. They are a run first team to begin with and it's not like the Bengals offense is a juggernaut.

Go with Cutler or Henne. Orton sucks.

Personally, I would go with Cutler.

I would put my decision between Henne or Orton.

Orton has a lot to prove to the fans so there is a lot of pressure on him (as previously stated). But he also has the ability to show that he is here to stay and should not be second guessed.

I think my pick would end up being Henne to start. I live in Houston and have been watching the Texans for 4 years now. The major problem with the Texans is that they play at their opponents level. **Insert your own thought on the team names so I do not sound biased or showing favor to only one team** Opponent 1 is the BEST TEAM IN THE NFL: The Texans have the ability to let it all out on the field. The put on a marvelous show and made it a very close game and either won or lost. Opponent 2 is the WORST TEAM IN THE NFL: The Texans fans all think this should be a No Brainer Win. But the Texans choose to play at their opponents skill level (probably the wrong phrasing but it's all I can think of right now). They end up playing sloppy and lose by more than a touchdown.

I agree the Texans have a good looking defense this year. Don't forget the Manning was out and so there was a lot more confusion with the Colts Offense. The major problem with the Texans is they don't show the Consistency that the Patriots or Jets or Colts (with Manning) have.
