    Toughest choice of season for me, so far....

    I've had a number of tough calls to make this season so far, but this one is by far the toughest.

    Do I start Favre on the road VS the Panthers?

    Or do I start Orton, at home, VS the Raiders?

    I keep bouncing back and forth with the choice, I believe it is really going to be that close.

    One thing I don't like is, if we have a safe lead going into the 4th Q VS the Panthers, I believe Chilly will pull Favre and plug in TJ....This alone could bit me.

    Denver is playing a big rival, at home, and each win is very important for them right now. Plus, BM has been on fire at the WR position, and I can see Two TD passes alone to BM from Orton this week..

    Right now I have Orton plugged in to start, but that has changed a couple of times this week already...LOL

    Help sell me on your thoughts..

    Ned

    tough one. I personally don't really think Orton is a sure thing for anything. He'll have some good games, he doesn't really have bad games, but he's not the kind of guy to put up 3+ td's or 300 yards on a semi-consistent basis. That, and the Broncos have really started slipping over the past two months.

    in y/g, Favre is 10th, Orton is 18th
    in t'ds, Favre is 3rd, Orton is 16th
    in int's, Favre is 1st, Orton is 8th (not counting VY and Quinn, who are 1st and 2nd, but haven't played nearly as much)

    I don't see this game as the type of game where Favre will be pulled at half. Maybe late in the fourth, but I'm betting he'll play the full game, but thats just me.

    Favre-27TD's QB Rating 2nd

    Orton-16TD's QB Rating 15th

    Denvers top three receivers in TD's 9,3,2
    Minnesotas top three receivers in TD's 9,6,5,

    Denver=Marshall, Stokely, Royal
    Minnesota=Rice, Berrian, Shiancoe, Harvin-if he plays

    Panthers give up 30pts a game
    Raiders 28pts

    Panthers 192yds given up in passing per game
    Raiders 218yds

    Sure TJ might get some garbage time, AFTER we're up by 28-so thats a good thing, Favre will get 3 TD's this game is my prediction, Marshall has got to be getting doubled from now on.
    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.

    Start Favre. He is 3 tds away from breaking another record, so he will get that this week.
    That Raiders D is actually pretty good and might cause some turnovers or hold the broncos to only 24 points.

    Thats it, I went with the Silver Fox himself...LOL To be honest, I didn't even give Young much of a thought ( Titans ), but he had a hell of a game and I would have been happy with his points, if I did consider and play him. One never knows.

    Good thing you did that.. Cutler already started his INT passing

    Re:Toughest choice of season for me, so far....

    I got a tough choice this week in two leagues.
    One I have boldin, s smith car, sims walker, r white, thinking of sitting sims walker, this past week I sat r white and that worked out well.

    In another league I have reggie wayne, s smith car, h nicks. I have to start 2 since we can start 3 rbs. I have peterson, c johnson, j charles, c benson, j harrison. I start the first 3 rbs, thinking of sitting wayne and playing smith,nicks, since they host the jets, shutdown corner revis, and really dont have a ton to play for.

    Ned... good luck tonight... comes down to the Monday nighter again... either way.. it was a fun season.

    BTW.. power outage for either of your choices.. Packers defense and Welker are killing me.. live by the sword or fall upon it.

    Favre sucked too. Who ended up with more points?
