Is it absolutely crazy to bench Tom Brady for Eli Manning?!

Postby e5volcano » Wed Sep 19, 2012 8:14 pm

I have been fortunate in getting both Eli Manning and Tom Brady in a 8 man league. Standard scoring
Would it be crazy crazy nuts to sit Tom Brady for Eli Manning this week?

Tom Brady is facing against the Ravens and he is missing Hernandez + the offense does not seem that well oiled.
Eli Manning is facing the Panthers who are not that good against the pass and he is missing Bradshaw, so I bet Eli will pass alot. However, Eli will be missing Nicks who is out with an injury.

I wouldn't say crazy....I have romo and have been pondering it as well.

Manning doesn't have nicks or Bradshaw.

Brady is facing a decent ravens D, and historically hasn't produced monster numbers against them. But there coming off a loss and the pats generally don't lose multiple games in a row.


Id go with your gut.


help me?

I think I would go with eli in this situation, and i know it is still very early but i think the pats offence is on the decline
