Manning or Freeman [WHIR] Playoff help!

Postby dmurn02 » Sun Dec 09, 2012 9:50 am

Need a big day from one of them.

Manning against the Saints, Saints D has been better recently, but they're on the road against the Giants. Manning has been mediorcare at best lately, and I'm just worried that he can throw a 2 TD 3 INT performance. Plus the Giants have been running it more.

On the other hand I have Josh Freeman against the Eagles terrible defense. I'm afraid that Doug Martin is going to go off and Freeman will have 1 TD and 215 yards.

Which would you go with? Leaning towards Freeman right now, but I think I may go with Eli? WHIR.

I prefer Freeman, he has played well recently and he has a good match-up.

Look at mine?

i'm afraid Manning might go off for 3-4 TDs, long shot though?

I think Eli will be forced to throw more than Josh. TB can win with the run today. Eli will have to throw to keep pace with the Saints. Go with Eli.

good luck

Hey - as an Eagles fan I would say Freeman - while your concern about Doug Martin limiting Freeman's need to have a big day is valid - I know that the Eagles D is weakest in the secondary. Safety Coleman is a big hitter in run defense but an idiot in coverage - he alone will be the reason someone gets wide open for a 40 yard + TD score. Also Manning has seemed to be making more mistakes recently and I think they will run all day on the saints.

Thats my 2 cents - help me out... viewtopic.php?t=531785

I'd probably go Freeman over Manning in this one. Eagles D is too tasty and I see him destroying them.

Would anyone go Freeman over Romo? I'm debating that right now.
