Big Ben or Kolb?

A beat up Big Ben with a lousy OL at home against the tough Titan defense or Kolb with a lousy OL in the Viking's Metrodome? The Vikings are giving up alot of passing yards, but they get alot of sacks too. Ugh, I need help...

I feel your pain. I have the same dilemma. I'm rolling with Kolb this week. Winfield is out and this might the week that Kolb is safer. The Ten D has been stout. Big Ben's schedule gets easier after this week but this is not the week I expect him to do anything but survive,hopefully.

Yep, I agree, Kolb it is. May the OL gods be kind to us!

The way this season's going, I should pick the better player and then play the other one...

If it helps, I too benched Roethlisberger for Kolb. No-brainer decision: Ben was ranked in the bottom of starting QBs over the first four weeks behind an O-line made of traffic cones, badly limping on a sprained ankle half an hour before the game.

Yep, Kolb killed me last week. He's going to the trash this week. Hoping to get Tebow on the WW.
