I actually have the same dilemma. Right now, I have Alex in there because McNabb has put up 11 against the Raiders and Redskins in consecutive weeks, which doesn't give me any confidence in his current abilities...and the fact that he's going up against the Giants and he's still somewhat injured.
We keep hearing about how good the Colts pass defense is, but we don't even know what our own QB is capable of at this point. We saw a glimpse of what he could do against a relaxed team in the lead who hadn't scouted him in a single half. Now, he's going up against a well-coached, very talented team that is considered one of the two best teams in the NFL right now. Undefeated...
Frankly, I need a lot more than 11 points this week to beat my opponent. So I'm rolling the dice. I'm hoping Alex can do over 300 yards passing and 3 TD's. I know it's wishful thinking, but if he has enough time to pass, he's not going to be just dumping off screens all day like Hill.
