LA is saying start Ponder over Brady.

Not sure I can pull the trigger on that one.

What do you guys think?

If you are in need of a win or your team hasn't been performing to the level you expected, this is the week in which to make some changes. I have no problems starting a QB like Kolb or Ponder (who I have started all but 1 week in my 2 QB league) over someone like Brady, who has been tried and true in years past. I don't like the Pats match up vs SEA at home. I do think the Pats win, but Brady ends up being "effective" but limited in yardage.

I also look at what Alex Smith did last week vs BUF, 300-3 TDs? Really? I think Kolb will have a big game (even with that offensive line) and could equal what Smith did. It's a risk, but with risk sometimes comes big rewards.

Ponder has been hit and miss, I like how he has played overall has put together 3 multi-TD games and until last week had not tossed an INT (thew 2 last week). SF and DET produced season lows in yardage, but Ponder has been a good QB2 this season.

As for this week I have both Kolb and Ponder putting up better numbers than Brady, but are you willing to pull the trigger and take that risk? Not an easy decision.
