    Kevin Kolb sure made it easy for Andy Reid to announce that Michael Vick would start in week 9, eh? I guess that’s what 231 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT, and 1 fumble lost will do. Kind of a crappy deal for Kolb though…

      really crapy deal for Kolb considering if they had scored and not fumbled in the red-zone before the half, they probably go on to win and Kolb may be looking at another opportunity to start, what do you think?

      Another question… i have matt ryan and roddy white going into their bye week. Any thoughts on a qb to pick up? and should i start santonio holmes or is there a sleeper to pick up at wr?

        Who knows what goes through the mind of Andy Reid when making a quarterback decision 🙂

        In terms of your quarterback situation though, you might consider Ryan Fitzpatrick. For some reason it’s hard for me to buy into the hype, but he’s now put together a string of solid outings and it seems that Lee Evans, Steve Johnson and Roscoe Parrish are giving him some targets to throw to. Matthew Stafford returns this week as well, in case he appeals to you.

        At wide receiver, go with Santonio Holmes. The Jets will have had an extra week to work on getting Holmes integrated in the offense and could have a decent game.

          Kansas City’s giving up 244 yards per game through the air, so Fitzpatrick could be a nice plug-in given that his big game last week came against the Ravens’ normally-tough D. The Bills finally seem to have found an offensive identity of sorts – far too late to save their season, of course, but enough to play spoiler a few times.

            They make me very nervous for the next Bills/Pats game, considering the New England secondary has been less-than-spectacular so far this year and it would be very fitting to see someone like Ryan Fitzpatrick go out and light them up.

    Michael Vick to start in week 3 

    While responding to some comments tonight, I take a look over at NFL.com and what do I find but a huge, red BREAKING NEWS banner saying that Michael Vick will start at quarterback for the Eagles in week 3. Apparently it doesn’t even have anything to do with Kevin Kolb’s health either. Vick just exceeded expectations and coach Andy Reid thinks he gives the team the best chance to win. So if you were considering making some kind of move regarding Vick…maybe you want to rethink it?

      Should I start Vick over Brady in week 3? I started Vick over Brady in week 2 and got a 33-15 point advantage.

        Brady is playing the 16th ranked pass defense this week and vick is playing the 28th. remember these rankings are built on just two games but it is a pretty solid indicator for who to start. It is nearly impossible to sit Brady of Vick this week making the decision difficult. I bet by the end of the week there will only be a 2 point spread from one to the other.

        I’m deferring to Matt on this one, since he’s in the same predicament, but I find it amusing that there seems to be so many questions on Brady vs Vick. Does anyone have these issues with Schaub, Peyton Manning or Brees vs Vick? Just curious.

        Brady is your go to man- yes what happened last week can happen but you’ll feel like an idiot when it doesn’t. If you drafted a good QB you start him every week but the bye. Trade Vick to strengthen the rest of your team. You’re playing with fire not starting Tom Brady, HE IS A BEAST.

      how bout vick over favre or flacco?

      • Brandon 5:00 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I think I’d start Vick over both of them until they prove themselves to be effective quarterbacks this season.

      My team (12 person $$ league) . I traded Foster/Ryan for Schaub/Davis after week 1 to get to this point. QB’s in this leauge get 6pts for TD’s and 1pt for every 20 yrds. Standard scoring other than that.
      Another team has Henne and Gerard as his QB’s.He wants to give me Bradshaw for Cutler. I told him I wanted MJD or Deangelo Williams 🙂

      Question, with QBs being so important in our format would you make the trade (even if he agreed to D Williams) or keep Cutler for in case Schaub gets injured? If KC would give Charles the ball instead of Thomas Jones this would be a mute point !!!

        How many players at each position do you start? 1 QB and 2 RB? Any flex position? Anyways, it probably makes sense to trade for one of those running backs as long as 1) you only start one QB and 2) you can find a serviceable backup for Schaub’s bye week. You don’t want to be giving up points at the RB position every week just so that you’re in good shape if your quarterback gets hurt.
