Default QB Change? Its Your Pick.

What are your thoughts on the potential QB change up's in the league this week?

Oakland

Is it time to give Andrew Walter at starting in place of unpredictable Aaron Brooks?

Personally I think pretty much any QB is going to get killed behind that line, but if you let Brooks continue you could be out of playoff contention by week 6.

Dallas

Will Bledsoe finally make his exit from the NFL or will he hang on until the dying embers of his talent fizzle out a la Favre?

Drew's decision making under pressure has never been great, and his atheltic ability has faded to the point that is does not compensate adequately anymore.

How good is this Tony Romo supposed to be anyway?

Tennessee

Collins or Young?

The Titans arent playoff bound this year, so maybe it would be a good idea to give Young some experience, but if they put him in too early and too raw maybe they will do him some lasting damage.

Ask me again in Week #3 or 4. I think its a bit too early in the season to be changing up on teams' starting QBs after only one week of regular season play.

As far as Tennessee goes...what the hell happened to Billy Volek????

I know Young is the future...but why bring in Collins and have him start right away???

Yeah, his going to Dallas was a deal with the devil. You knew the ending of the book as soon as you saw the title.

billy volek is being traded to the chargers. theyre just waiting until after this weeks match-up so volek dont give away any of the gameplan.

Exactly...all those teams mentioned cant give up their best chance to win games at THIS point in the season. If the trend continues...by all means, start giving the rookies some snaps to help them with the learning curve. (But I would throw Plummer/Cutler into that same group...take in mind I admittingly hate Plummer)

I gotta go with Oakland or Tennessee. McNair wasted two years on the bench, they shouldn't do the same with Vince Young. Brooks is just horrible. Nuff said.

The Raiders already showed the have very little confidence in Brooks by showing a strong interest in trading for Billy Volek.

So my guess is Brooks will be the first benched.
