    I like Palmer’s position here. I was afraid everyone would be drinking his cool-aide after last week but I dont see a repeat against Miami.

    Oh also just noticed no Aaron Rodgers :-( Interested to see where you think he fits in against them Jets.

    @Sam:

    Wow… i dont know how that happen i must be missing another quarterback as well since i have 24 up there and there will be 25 after the addition of Rodgers…

    I’ll try and figure it out, but i would put him at 10 and move Henne and company down a spot.

    Hey guys, sorry… I haven’t had much time lately as the wife is looking like she could drop the baby any moment.

    Consig.. Brady below VY? Really? In his career vs. SD he has a rating just below 50. You saw the job the SD defense did on Brady and co. last week, how does VY outperform Brady, Bradford, and Freeman?

    NE will have to go to the air to move the ball and Brady will have a big game vs. that secondary on his quick reads to Hernandez.

    @Brohamma:

    I see your concern there, It is being reported now that VY might not play.

    When i ranked this i was under the belief that VY would be 100%, i made this on Wednesday.

    My thought process was that Britt would still be dominate and you add in the running ability of VY he was looking at a top 10 day. Although as i look now it seems more likely he will be held out or be limited.

    I would downgrade him a bit to about 15 or so even if he plays.

    Well rodgers shoulda been put dead last. It actually made sense to exclude him this week :-)
