T.J. Fournier, Susansville, CA: Who is a better start in week 16? Daunte Culpepper or Drew Brees?

Engel: At first glance, it might seem that Brees has a very nice matchup with the Colts, in which it is conceivable that he would have to throw a lot. Not so. The Chargers will likely rely heavily on their running game, and the Colts' defense has been playing much better recently. And you can't ever bench Culpepper, even if Brees is a nice alternative.
