Input welcomed. Please save the "omg Rivers is playing us this week!!!1" That does not factor into this decision.

Normally I play Rivers every week. But this week Favre is playing the Ravens, who are 26th against the pass. Still, it's the Ravens, which makes me iffy.

Thoughts?

I'm playing Rivers. With our run defense I think we'll force Rivers to beat us and he'll keep throwing. Doesn't mean they will win but he may rack up the yards. Regardless of who Brett is playing they rely on Peterson. And when they have to rely on Favre, he usually gets INT's unless he gets lucky.

Interesting. I don't think I can bring myself to sit Rivers, the guy is just so good. It's looking like I will go with him. Still 10 minutes left, if anybody has any other input.

This is false!

Favre has been pretty damn good this year, I have him and Peterson, I start both.

Not to mention Childress sucks off favre and gives him the first two shots on 1st and goal every time anyway.

You know what? I'm going Favre. Rolling the dice a bit. Ravens aren't going to let AP run wild, I think Favre scores a few points for me.

LOL you may be right about Favre, I'm biased against him. But I do believe that Rivers will have to beat us.

Another thing too, Peterson owns good defenses, it's the ****ty teams he can't run against. This should force them to keep more guys in the box and force favre to beat them.

I started both Fayver and Peterson this week.

Two TD's for Favre in first quarter, you're welcome :)

Bad ass. This is good.

Now I just need Baltimore to keep this close, I don't want the Vikes to run run run because it gets out of hand.

i go with Rivers. we will stop the running game and force him to throw all day. he will probably rack up a good amount of yards.

Shoulda gotten a 3rd Brett Favre TD but Sidney Rice ran out of gas at like the 5 yard line and got ran down.

I ****ed myself this week, I wanted to Play Hakeem Nicks so bad, but just couldn't start him over Mario Manningham or Braylon Edwards, I literally pulled Nicks for Edwards at the last second :(
