    Who Should I Start?

    Who should I start? Shaun Alexander vs. the Chargers or Willie Parker vs. the Ravens?

    Also, in my league, I'm currently in the finals. My question is, who has the advantage?:

    He has:
    Steve McNair vs. Steelers
    LaDainian Tomlinson vs. Seahawks
    Reggie Brown vs. Cowboys
    Lee Evans vs. Titans
    Reggie Wayne vs. Texans
    Rams defense vs. Redskins
    Shayne Graham vs. Broncos

    I have:
    Ben Roethlisberger vs. Ravens
    Shaun Alexander vs. Chargers (or Willie Parker vs. Ravens)
    Terrell Owens vs. Eagles
    Antonio Gates vs. Seahawks
    Donald Driver vs. Vikings
    Steelers defense vs. Rams
    Jeff Reed vs. Ravens

    I'd stay away from Parker v. the Ravens "D" when you have Alexander available.

    The teams are close. The Cowboys' "D" has been allowing big plays which could allow Brown to offset Owens. If LT plays the whole game, I'd give him a very slight edge, although this apprears to be a very close matchup.

    Thank you. I might regret it, but I decided to change my defense to the Chiefs (since they're facing the Raiders), and I changed my quarterback to Cutler (but I won't be disappointed if the Bengals intercept him a few times).

    The Chiefs "D" has burned me a couple times this year, but how bad could they possibly play against the Raiders.

    I like swapping Cutler for Big Ben.

    From what I hear, LT may be sharing carries w/Turner this weekend, so you may have a good chance.

    Good luck.

    The Raiders have the worst offense in the league. I will be surprised if they get 10 points and 100 yards total offense

    I'd say he has the better team. Any team with LT on it typically gets the nod.

    Definitely go with Shaun Alexander. If I told you back in September that you'd be considering benching Alexander in championship week you would have called me crazy.

    Starting Alexander definitely paid off. As long as Reggie Brown doesn't score one more touchdown than Terrell Owens, I win the championship. My last-minute substitutions helped, too. Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. Your commission checks will be in the mail.

    Brown got 12, Owens 8. Taking for granted you squeaked this one out?

    Yeah, I won by nine points. It's a shame the Bengals had to ruin my weekend.
