Week 7 – QB – Ben Roethlisberger or Eli Manning?

Posted by in NFL Week 7 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 18th, 2010 | Comment »

Question: I need some QB advice for week 7. Who should I start?

Ben Roethlisberger vs MIN
Eli Manning vs ARI

Answer:

I would start Eli Manning. Jared Allen is one of the best pash rushers in the league (7.5 sacks so far this season which is 3rd overall).  MIN is ranked No. 1 in sacks (21.0 tied with Denver) and knowing that Big Ben likes to hold onto the ball in order to extend plays, there’s a good chance he might get the balled stripped or be forced into throwing interceptions. I also think that Pittsburgh will try to slow the pace of this game by relying on their running game.

Eli Manning is going to be gun-slinging with Kurt Warner this week. I expect this game to end up in a shootout. Plus, Eli has a full healthy receiving corp to work with in Manningham, Smith, Nicks. Eli has definitely shown signs of taking his game to the next level so I would go with him this week.

Ben hasn’t played Minnesota in his career yet, but last year Eli played at Arizona and he played very well against them. 26/33, 240 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INT. Giants won 37-29. That was also without Manningham and Nicks who have stepped it up this season. Go with Eli Manning all the way.
