I love the article. You couldn't see JT O' Sullivan throwing for big yards against the weak Detriot defense? I'm trying to figure out if I should start him over Cassel.

Shine -- I definitely see J.T. having a nice game against Detroit. He's 12th in my dirty dozen QBs. Go for him even though Cassel should do OK against pathetic Miami.

Jerry, did you really leave Matt Forte off of the running backs list but put LaDainian Tomlinson and Joseph Addai on it? You have to let go of the past.

Matt Cassel, Eli Manning, or Tony Romo this week? We get 1 pt. for 25 yards passing, 1 pt for 10 yards rushing, 5 points for every touchdown, and -1 for an interception/fumble lost. What would you do?
Also, is Maroney worth keeping?

Bro -- Forte certainly could be among the top 12 RBs this week, so your point is valid. When I wrote that, L.T. seemed in better shape than later reports so he is looking shaky. I still think the Colts offense overall will perform better.

Cocoa -- Good question. Most folks would automatically say Romo -- and there's the added attraction of watching him sunday night against the Pack.-- But if Cassel is going to have a good day, shouldn't it be at home against the Fish?(Of course you can make that argument for Eli, too, at home against the Bengals.)
OK -- I hate this question. And, finally, my answer is that I am going against the earlier dirty dozen rankings by telling you go Romo - Cassel -- Manning in that order.

As for Maroney -- I've dropped him to 29th in my overall RB rankings, so he's worth keeping as a No. 3 RB but not more than that.
good luck.
