I'm legitimately considering it. Only reason I put FF on the main board is because it's neckbeard, feel free to move it if you'd like.

I don't know if I would against Tennessee but Schaub has been lousy as a starting QB.

i traded for orton a few weeks ago, he needs a few more TDs but hes a legit top 5-6 starting QB right now.

Not sure about him being lousy. More like average. He is the #10 ranked QB and #15 overall point scorer in the OMane league.

That said...Andre Johnson might not start this week and the top WR on the Texans will be matched up against Nnamdi.

I would still play Shaub....but it is close.

They can prevent Johnson from matching up against Nnamdi by moving him to the other side. Jones lines up against him right now as it is.

I'd go with Orton.

How much will the Texans be passing in the 2nd half with their huge lead?

Foster for a huge game.

Funny, these are my two options as well. Right now, I have Orton in.

Very tough call.

Oak has good stats against the pass, but that may be a mirage.

Tenn ranks about in the middle.

Nnamdi has done a lot more of following the #1 all over the field this year than he ever did in the past where he played on one side. Last week I believe he was on Fitz the entire game regardless of side or motion.

Yeah, with more health coming to our OLine and Johnson nursing an injury, I think I'm gonna go with Orton as well.

I traded for Orton right after our draft and man am I happy I did! I had Kolb and Rothensberger and Orton has been tearing it up!!

I went with the strategy of taking late round QB's this year and it ended up screwing me badly. I ended up with Stafford and McNabb. McNabb isn't the issue obviously, but I wasn't sure about him and still think he will miss a game or two somehow.

I ended up trading McNabb for Orton even though it breaks my rule of having Denver players on my team if I can help it. So far, so good.

I got both Schaub and Orton and these are the results:

Game 1 Lost Started Schaub
Game 2 Won Started Orton
Game 3 Lost Started Schaub



I would be 3-0 if I started Orton those losing weeks. Schaub is really pissing me off.

considering this, i'd say orton...

Titans starting CB McCourty out for Denver game

2 hours, 36 minutes ago

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Tennessee Titans starting right cornerback Jason McCourty will not play in Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos.
McCourty, listed as out on Friday, underwent surgery Tuesday morning after he broke his forearm in last Sunday’s 29-10 victory over the New York Giants.

Rookie fourth-round pick Alterraun Verner will start in McCourty’s place.

I'm legitimately considering a trade where I give Peyton and Forte for Orton and Ray Rice.

Haha I have the same combo, just traded Shaub and planning on riding Orton for the season. Homeboy is going to do A LOT of passing this year.

I grabbed orton in the last round of my draft as a joke to back up my starter Kevin Kolb. You can see how that worked out.

No, as I said he's lousy for a starting QB. As you stated he's the #10 ranked QB, that means if you're playing in a 10 player league, he's more than likely the worst out of all the starters. He's had few yards, INT's and it depends on the scoring in your league. My backup has gotten more points, Matt Ryan. I'm in 5 leagues and got him in the only auto draft. Thank God I got Foster in that one or I'd be dead.

Orton or Flacco?

Flacco had the best week he's going to have all year last week. He was just blindly heaving the ball to Boldin.

If Flacco is on your roster, I would trade him today, because he's at his high point right now.
