Eli or Matty Ryan? Defense Q? WHIR

Postby NateDogg2525 » Sun Dec 16, 2012 11:23 am

6pt Tds, 1pt per 50yds

Eli Manning @ Atl
or
Matt Ryan vs Giants

I am leaning towards Eli on this one. Matt Ryan has played better on the road latley and the Giants have more to play for.

Also do I start the bears vs GB at home or the Lions @ Arizona?

I actually think the lions are a safer play? Help please playing for the big bucks...WHIR

I would go with Eli here, he does very well when Nicks is healthy, and Ryan could be without White, or at least not a 100% white.

Lions Defense, imo

Call this a gut feeling more than anything but I'd give the edge to Matt Ryan over Eli this week. I see Atlanta struggling to run the ball against the Giants so he'll be forced to throw, especially if the Giants jump ahead early. I'd expect the Giants to be running a more balanced attack. It doesn't necessarily mean Eli won't have a good line but I see Matt Ryan throwing for over 300 yards as a pretty safe assumption (and he'd still have Tony Gonzalez and Julio Jones in the passing game even if Roddy White isn't at 100%).

I agree with your assumption that the Lions are your safer defensive play. Arizona's QB play has been terrible and I don't think Ryan Lindley suddenly became competent in practice this week. I'd be shocked if Arizona's offense scored more than half the points GB puts up today against the Bears.

I am going absolutely nuts over this one. My gut really says Eli since the Giants need to win. The falcons have clinched, but are playing for the number 1 seed. Giants pass D is not good. I have started Ryan every game this year. Giants will be able to run the ball....AAAHHHHH. This is to make it to the championship game. Anyone else please?
