Quarterback help. (I'm a Manning victim)

Postby Vincent Gabriele » Thu Sep 15, 2011 12:43 am

Ok after starting Sam Bradford week one and getting nothing from him, I picked up Cam Newton and Rex Grossman for insurance.

This week I'm not sure who to go with. Newton plays Green Bay. Grossman plays Arizona. Bradford plays New York Giants.

Who would you go with?

Id go with Grossman. Cam did well because AZ dared him to throw with an 8 man front. Wash is more balanced because they can run and pass the ball. Carolina was know as more of a running team with a rookie QB. AZ tested that and lost the passing defensive battle but won the game. I feel AZ tries to even it out more which may bee good for hightower but will leave plenty of openings for the passing game at the same time.

GB is a much better D than AZ and Newton will see that Sunday. Bradford with his injury worries me. If he is good to go I would would rank them like this. Bradford, Grossman, Newton.

From what I've read Bradford is throwing at full strength. With that being said I would take Bradford with Grossman as a close 2nd.

I'd give Grossman the shot vs. a horribly weak defense, and let Bradford have a week to show his finger isn't bothering him. There's a nonzero chance that Grossman comes in, re-injures his hand and leaves in the 1st quarter.

You think that's a bad QB situation, try to answer my question: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=496705
