Fantasy QB Team by Team Update

Dallas Cowboys QB Drew Henson may receive a chance to lead the lack luster Cowboy offense. Henson is not the only QB fans will have on the "Player to watch" list. <br> <b>Cleveland - </b>Garcia or Holcomb ?<br> <b>Chicago -</b> Krenzel or Quinn or Hutchinson ?

St. Louis Rams
QB Marc Bulger's passer rating fell to 89.5 this week after he threw three interceptions against Buffalo, but Bulger is still third in the NFL with 2,819 yards and has completed 64.6 percent of his passes.

Washington Redskins
QB Mark Brunell remains at the bottom of the NFL in rating (63.9), though he's still ahead of new starter Patrick Ramsey (50.5).

QB Patrick Ramsey managed just a 61.2 rating in the Eagles game Sunday despite what would be considered a solid performance. A late interception (off a tipped ball) and just 162 yards (thanks to a conservative game plan) tanked Ramsey's rating.

Chicago Bears
QB Jonathan Quinn remains the backup ahead of Chad Hutchinson even though the coaching staff refused to go to Quinn last week while starter Craig Krenzel was losing two fumbles and throwing two interceptions.

QB Chad Hutchinson said he has had no trouble learning the team's voluminous playbook and would do "fine" if asked to play in a game, even without the benefit of snaps with the first team. "I think once you get out there, they'd probably scale it back a little bit, and I think I'd be all right," he said. "I have a pretty good understanding of it. A lot of it is stuff that I'm used to from the past. It's just a matter of going out there and getting comfortable and playing football."

Dallas Cowboys
QB Drew Henson likely will start at quarterback against the Bears on Thursday, coach Bill Parcells said. Vinny Testaverde, 41, remains bothered by a sore shoulder and sore back, suffered Sunday against Ravens. Henson hasn't started a game at quarterback in nearly four years, since his junior season at Michigan. But he filled in in the fourth quarter against the Ravens, completing 6 of 6 passes for 47 yards and a touchdown. "I'm making the move that I'm forced to make," Parcells said. "The circumstances are dictating that right now. Retrospectively, now that it looks like he has to start, I'm glad he was in there. I don't think it hurt." Henson says he's ready for anything. "This is what I've been waiting for. It's a chance to go out there and play," said Henson, who took most of the snaps at practice Tuesday. "I'm preparing today and tomorrow as if it will happen. It will be a great opportunity and something I'll definitely remember."

Arizona Cardinals
QB Josh McCown handled his benching diplomatically, saying he was disappointed but had confidence that coach Dennis Green was doing what he thought best for the team.

QB Shaun King will remain the team's starter, but for how long? That's always a legitimate question for coach Dennis Green, who has been known to change his mind. King made some decent plays last week against Carolina but also threw three interceptions.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
QB Brad Johnson was the inactive third QB Sunday against the 49ers and is expected to have that role through the end of the season.

QB Chris Simms made his first appearance since Oct. 18 in the fourth quarter against the 49ers on Sunday. Simms did not attempt a pass but was sacked once for 10 yards. He will be the Bucs' No. 2 QB the remainder of the season.

QB Brian Griese is third in the NFC with a passer rating of 104.4. He has finished the last six games with passer ratings of 126.8, 94.4, 100.5, 111.9, 100.5 and 94.4.

Tennessee Titans
QB Billy Volek did not play in the Titans' first game against the Texans and won't play in this one unless Steve McNair winds up hurt.

QB Steve McNair played horribly in the Titans' Oct. 17 loss to the Texans and will be eager for some payback in Houston on Sunday. In the first game, a 20-10 loss, he completed only 19 of 41 pass attempts with one touchdown and four interceptions. His bruised sternum is not giving him much of a problem, though the wrong hit could restart it at virtually any time.

Minnesota Vikings
QB Gus Frerotte didn't play against the Lions. His only pass this season came off a busted place-kick.

QB Daunte Culpepper has been criticized in the past for his lack of come-from-behind victories. He had one of his best on Sunday against the Lions. The Vikings trailed 19-7 in the third quarter when Culpepper huddled the offense together on the sideline and challenged each player to act like he was part of the NFL's best offense (actually, it's No. 4 now). Culpepper then directed two fourth-quarter touchdown drives in a 22-19 victory.

Jacksonville Jaguars
QB David Garrard is likely to return to the bench after going 1-1 in his two games as a starter while Byron Leftwich was out two games with a sprained knee.

Cincinnati Bengals
QB Jon Kitna takes an active role with Carson Palmer and other offensive players during the game. Though he has not played a down this season in 10 games, Kitna serves as an unofficial assistant coach and remains a strong, positive influence in the locker room.

QB Carson Palmer continues to play well for long stretches of games but has been unable to avoid costly errors. His biggest mistake against the Steelers was throwing into triple-coverage. Linebacker James Farrior returned the interception 14 yards for a touchdown.

Green Bay Packers
QB Brett Favre looked greatly fatigued after leading a two-minute drill to the winning field goal as time expired in Houston. "He was emotionally spent," offensive coordinator Tom Rossley said. "He played great." Favre even rushed for 17 yards on a scramble in the fourth quarter, adding to his exhaustion.

Oakland Raiders
QB Marques Tuiasosopo still has not taken a regular season snap and remains Collins' lone backup.

QB Kerry Collins' 105.8 pass rating for the San Diego game was by far his highest of the year. His previous best: 88.2 vs. New Orleans.

Philadelphia Eagles
QB Koy Detmer saw his first action of the season Sunday aside from holding for kicker David Akers when he finished up for Donovan McNabb in the Eagles' 28-6 win over the Redskins. He threw just one pass.

QB Donovan McNabb has had a passer rating of 100 or better in six of the Eagles' 10 games this season.

New Orleans Saints
QB Todd Bouman has not seen action at quarterback in the first 10 games. In addition to backing up Aaron Brooks, he is the holder for kicker John Carney.

QB Aaron Brooks had a game Sunday that will go down in the record books; the problem is, it's one he would rather forget. Brooks established club records in attempts (60) and completions (34) in throwing for 377 yards (tying for the second-highest total in franchise history) and one TD. What he would like to forget is the three interceptions he threw, including one that was returned 7 yards for a score by middle linebacker Al Wilson.

Carolina Panthers
QB Rodney Peete saw his first action on Sunday since the first game of the 2003 season. Peete worked in a mop-up role.

QB Jake Delhomme continues to play solid football; he has thrown eight touchdown passes and only one interception in his last three games. Despite a broken right thumb, Delhomme didn't fumble any snaps Sunday and played well enough to lift Carolina to its second consecutive win.

Denver Broncos
QB Jake Plummer has been pretty good against the rival Oakland Raiders in his Broncos career. He completed 25-of-41 passes for 302 yards and three touchdowns and had a rushing touchdown against Oakland last year. He had three touchdowns in the first half at Oakland this year, and has won all three games against the Raiders since signing with Denver.

Cleveland Browns
QB Kelly Holcomb has not had a normal amount of reps a typical backup would because JEff Garcia is in his first year in the offense. Holcomb could see more action starting Wednesday when the Browns resume practice for the game against the Bengals.

Baltimore Ravens
QB Kordell Stewart is scheduled to remain the No. 2 quarterback for the next couple of weeks as Anthony Wright works out soreness in his shoulder. QB Kyle Boller has averaged 34 throws over the past four games and the Ravens have called passing plays on 60 percent of their snaps. During that span, Boller has completed 61 percent of his passes, averaged 202 yards passing and thrown five touchdowns.

New York Jets
QB Quincy Carter was ineffective against the Browns and is 1-1 as a starter this year, but coach Herman Edwards believes he has played well enough for the Jets to have won both games and maybe he has. Carter was skittish under pressure against the Browns and didn't look ready to run when the pocket collapsed, which is what the Jets want him to do. The hope is that Carter will start relaxing soon.

Miami Dolphins
QB A.J. Feeley showed improvement as last Sunday's 24-17 loss to Seattle progressed. Even though he committed four turnovers - including the interception that was returned 63 yards for the game winning score by Seahawks safety Michael Boulware - Feeley completed 21 of his final 37 passes after a two-of-eight start.

San Francisco 49ers
QB Ken Dorsey has an 0-3 record as a starting quarterback. He has completed 62 of 115 passes this season for 591 yards with no touchdowns and four interceptions. He has not played since a 23-13 loss to the Chicago Bears on Oct. 31.

QB Tim Rattay has experienced the two worst games of his career in back-to-back games, but a good deal of the blame has to fall on an offensive line that has not supplied any kind of protection. Rattay was sacked five times Sunday against Tampa Bay. He has been sacked 25 times in seven starts and rarely has enough time to get the ball down the field. He has also thrown nine interceptions. He either throws an interception or is sacked once every 8.7 times he drops back to throw.

Buffalo Bills
QB J.P. Losman, the team's first-round pick from Tulane who broke his leg in training camp, will see his repetitions increase in practice for this week's game against Seattle. He could be elevated to No. 2 at any time.

QB Drew Bledsoe threw three TD passes to TE Mark Campbell against the Rams. The last time he tossed three TDs to the same receiver was on Nov. 26, 1995 against the Bills to TE Ben Coates of New England.

New York Giants
QB Kurt Warner was praised by head coach Tom Coughlin for his behavior on the bench last Sunday after losing the job he held for the first nine games of the season. "He was outstanding," Coughlin said. "He was yelling and screaming and congratulating guys as they came off the field. He is a consummate professional."

QB Eli Manning continues to take full blame for the five dropped passes in the first half of last Sunday's game vs. Atlanta (three by TE Jeremy Shockey, two by WR Amani Toomer). But the fault wasn't his; he's just being diplomatic. "I have to throw better passes," he said humbly.

Kansas City Chiefs
QB Trent Green had his fourth straight 300-yard passing game against New England, but the Chiefs have lost three of them.

New England Patriots
QB Tom Brady completed 65 percent of his passes for 315 yards and averaged 11.4 yards per pass play while posting a 119.9 passer rating. He welcomed back Deion Branch by hitting the diminutive wideout six times for 105 yards and a touchdown, but he also spread the ball out, throwing to eight different receivers in the game. He once again utilized his wideouts, tight ends and backs, throwing at the soft spots in the coverage and he looked sharp doing so in a tough environment at Arrowhead Stadium. The Patriots converted 8-of-12 third downs, beat man coverage to make a couple of big plays down the field and beat the blitz on several occasions. Brady was sacked just once, on his first snap.
