Eli Manning: Following an embarrassing showing on National television in
Philip Rivers: At 2-3, Rivers and the Bolts are not where they expected to be, five games into the season. The for-real Broncos handled the Chargers with ease in front of a stunned Monday Night crowd in
Michael Bush: According to Richard Seymour, the Raiders are playoff bound. Considering
DeAngelo Williams: The lone bright spot for the Jets against
Donald Driver: Greg Jennings may be on the shelf for this one, so Driver could slide back into his former role as the primary target for
Santonio Holmes: In a game that many see as
Tony Gonzalez: Gonzo and the Falcons head to Big D with momentum and shot at one of the weakest pass defenses in the NFL. Cowboy defenders have garnered just two picks all year, and will be facing a Falcons offense that is confident, and beginning to heat up. Gonzalez has been consistent, but has yet to post a 100 yard receiving or multi-touchdown game. This may be the week.
Greg Olsen: Few teams will be hungrier to bounce back from a defeat last week than the Chicago Bears. After a disappointing loss to the Falcons last Sunday night, where the Bears “dropped” a game they should have won, the newly extended Jay Cutler and company will be firing away at a deceptive 4-2 Bengals team that just isn’t that good. Olsen hasn’t hit his stride yet, but he’s about to, as the Bears face these Bengals, the Browns and the Cardinals the next three weeks.
Kurt Warner: Benching a QB coming off a pair of 275-plus, 2 TD performances is not a typical move. In this case however, the QB is the aging Kurt Warner, heading into a game with his former New York Giant mates at the blustery Meadowlands. The Giants D will present a much steeper challenge to Warner than the porous Texan and Seahawk defenses did the past couple of weeks. Additionally, the Giants are returning home after being smoked out on Monday night in
Carson Palmer: The first place Bengals…..that sounds strange…..host the angry Bears, who are looking for redemption after blowing multiple opportunities to put away the Falcons last Sunday night in Atlanta. Although Cinchy is standing tall at 4-2, they have likely overachieved to date, and limp into this contest after a beating by Matt Schaub and the Texans.
Tim Hightower: Tim needs to take a seat next to Kurt Warner this week, as it will not be in the ”Cards” for Arizona against the vaunted Giants D.
Braylon Edwards: The suddenly struggling Jets limp into Week 7 without All-Pro Kris Jenkins, and a just a week removed from a horrendous showing against a back-up QB led Bills team that shocked the Green and White in the “Swamps of Jersey”. Mark Sanchez will be without Jerricho Cotchery this week, and will have difficulty finding Edwards, the Jets only viable option left at WR. Sanchez may not throw another 5 INT’s, but he’ll be hard pressed to find Braylon open with Nnamdi draped all over him for 4 quarters. The Jets could be looking at yet another disappointing trip to
Santana Moss: Another Redskin makes the “Sit em” list, as it’s difficult to recommend going with any
Kellen Winslow: Despite a strong Week 1 and 2, and a monster 9 catch, 102 yard, 2 TD effort in Week 5 in Philadelphia, the exceptionally talented but enigmatic KW Jr. should be passed on this week against New England. The Pats are starting to roll, and the Bucs are….well…the Bucs.
Chris Cooley: Do you see a trend here? Have I made myself clear? DO NOT start any Redskins players this week. Just don’t do it.
