Is Collins worth a second shot

Moderator: Football Moderators

I'm going with him again, albeit over Brunell, despite getting burned last week. Well, I guess I really didn't get burned too bad 'cause I still won my game by 24 points, but even a sub-par day from Collins would have made it an embarrasing blowout. I guess less than 5 turnovers was too much to ask...

All that aside, I like the matchup a lot this week against Indy anyway. I expect Collins to bounce back, and bounce back surprisingly well.

He should be pretty good versus the Colts. Everyone is good against the Colts, so I'd start him.

Would you start him this week over someone like, say, Brooks? ;)

Is Collins worth a second shot?



If you shoot him in the head, there's no need to waste the bullet, so I vote no....

I am going to give the drunk another shot. Whenever expectations are high, he folds like a house of cards. When nothing is expected of him, he usually does well. I don't think much is expected of him after last weeks debacle, so he may actually do well. Playing the Colts doesn't hurt either. I am predicting 200-250 yards, 2 TDs, 2 picks.
Vengeance is mine.

I didn't give him a shot to begin with...

...but if I were in a QB "bye week and injury" mess, yes, I'd give him a shot. It took more than a day to build Rome...

Then again, it probably takes more than a day to build a giant pile of crap, too...

Which will it be? We'll find out soon enough...

I'm starting him. I like this match up versus Indy's secondary. ;-D


Perhaps....but...I still find it funny....so start him and watch your team go up in smoke... ;-D

You people never learn. I would take the safe route and someone more established in their team. I understand that the indy D is bad but texas' D isn't particularly good either.
