So itâ€™s coming down to the zero hour and Iâ€™m incredibly torn on who to start at quarterback. I have 3 QBâ€™s still (because I was trying to pull a trade with Carson Palmer, but itâ€™s not happening yet).
Palmer is going up against Carolina. I donâ€™t trust that matchup. The Bengals have had a terrible offensive line all year and the Panthers D is not too shabby. Phillip Rivers is playing at Arrowhead. Last year the Chiefs crushed them there. The Chargers should clean up in this gameâ€¦ but minus a freak-out against the Steelers, Kansas City has not allowed points. The Chargers have a great run defense, probably the best, but itâ€™s Larry Johnson. Even with that line the Chiefs have, he still might run for 200 yards today and keep Rivers off the field. Then there is Matt Leinart. The rookie playing for a bad team. Heâ€™s playing the Raiders, which is a sure win, but Iâ€™m afraid Edge James might be running the ball all day (Iâ€™d hope not, because heâ€™s been terrible in Arizona).
All of those matchups make me nervous. Iâ€™m still going with the guy playing the worst team theory (Leinart), but Iâ€™ll be biting my nails all day. The worst part, is that Rivers and Palmer both play noon games. So I have to sit and suffer through those games. If either one has a big day, Iâ€™ll probably be popping Tums while I wait for young Matt to take the field.
