Roethlisberger @ HOU or Hasselbeck @ Clvlnd WHIR!

Postby eriesteeler » Fri Sep 30, 2011 7:35 am

Need some insight on this one...

Roethlisberger has been getting hammered with that terrible o-line and the Houston d will be coming for him all day long. Hasselbeck just lost Britt for season, but has been off to a good start and plays an average Clevelend D. If CJ gets going for them, it might open up more passing opportunities. I'm leaning toward Hasselbeck, but would like to hear your arguments, Thanks!

Big Ben showed against Indy that he can get away from incoming Ds and still throw the rock. With players like Freeney and Mathis, he was facing a nasty defensive line in Indy and still had a good game. Smith and Watt simply are not the same level. I would still give Big Ben the start here.

I'd roll with Big Ben
He'll likely have to throw, and has weapons to make plays.

Id wait to see if hass can keep his perf up without Britt

Thanks for the insight guys. Anyone else have any thoughts or feel Hasselbeck is the better play>? I will immediately help in return.
