Resting starters only prevents an on the field injury not players from actually getting injured somewhere else or even in practice so not I would not rest them unless a score got out of hand one way or the other. For me it comes down to not taking your foot of the gas

As for Luck, every second he's spending on the turf, every snap he is receiving, every yard he passes/rushes is experience for him. This is his rookie season, that is about gaining as much experience he just can... So, no, I wouldn't rest him...only if we are in Q4 and have 4 TDs lead ahead of Texans.

You ALWAYS shutdown Any player who needs it in that situation. A simple decision.

And in our case, it would be silly to Risk losing Reggie, pass rushers, CB`s in a meaningless game.

Good point but since when did we start playing with Corners? :funny:O.o

Lord.

Please let us not continue with the nearly-annual "resting the starters for the playoffs" discussion. 1) Football players are payed to play football, not stand - healthy, on the sidelines wearing a ball cap. 2) Fans (the reason the players are able to make the money they do) pay a lot of money to see players on the field, not standing - healthy, on the sidelines wearing a ball cap. 3) Anyone even talking pre-playoff strategy is just a wee ahead o' themselves.

I don't understand the mindset of not sitting your key players to avoid injury going into the playoffs and then saying its ok to take them out if your winning by 4 td's. If experiance of playing every possible snap is so important why take away the experiance in the 4th qtr in a blowout?

Just think how much the Patriots and TE Gronkowski are so much better off now playing those last few plays vs Colts in the blowout.

I don't believe this topic will ever be agreed on by any fan of any team."What if" plays a major part in all sports. If there is a mid point philosophy it would be to get an early lead then rest some of them, which can also backfire so who is to say.

because they have been clicking well for most of the game and have the game in hand and are not needed. The playing one series and then leaving the game is completely different. I have always thought that the times we would have Peyton and the

starters playing one series, go 3 and out, sit the rest of the game, do that same thing the next

2 weeks contributed greatly to all the one and dones in the playoffs. So to answer the op.......

Absolutely NOT!!!!!!!!!!!

If they are healthy then they play no matter what. As Jules said this is no well oiled machine so they need as much time out there and taking time off will not help things. We need all the experience we can get. Also, I just hate the mentality of just rolling over and not going for 16-0 left a horrible taste in my mouth that I will never let go.

No Andrew Luck is still a rookie and needs every snap he can get. This isn't like resting a Peyton Manning in the prime of his career.

    • Draftbreakdown.com adds NoHuddle App support
      http://draftbreakdown.com/draft-breakdown-adds-nohuddle-remote-to-users-viewing-experience/   Basically allows you to use your smartphone as a remote to control the video you're viewing. Rewind, fast forward, slow motion, etc., with a tap of your phone's screen. It's a lot better than using the Youtube controls. I just started using it, so I don't know if it's glitchy yet, but I like it so far.

      I can be selective like that? But Manning would have another ring had the drunken Canadian hit a very makeable field goal. You seem to be selective in your comment? You see Brady as the best of the salary cap era? How selective is that? I would put any QB and their numbers up against Sammy Baugh. But dismiss him because of era? You speak of me being selective but yet you are doing it yourself. Then there is Marino. No rings? So because of that he is not in the conversation? The GOAT is all opinion and there will never be an answer.

      That's pretty much what Jason Cole is about.
    • 2015 draft class
      All of Dorsett, Anderson, Smith, Geathers, and Parry. Anderson was a stud before he went down. We found a gem with Henry. He should be back week 1 IMO, and he should pick right up where he left off. He was a beast against the run last year, and I think his pass rush will get better and better. I look for him to have a breakout year next season. Parry started off really well, then went downhill. I think part of that was just being a rookie, and part of it was playing without Anderson. He may not ever be a superstar or anything, but I think he should be much improved next season and I think he can be a really good starting NT.  Especially with Anderson and Langford on each side of him. Clayton Geathers should, IMO be starting next season next to Adams. Geathers can be the enforcer our D's been missing since my man Bob Sanders. I think he may have limitations in coverage, but he should be a force against the run and rack up a bunch of tackles. D'Joun Smith I honestly have no idea what to think. I mean none of us know what he'll be. I'll just say that hopefully he ends up beating out Butler and becomes a really good nickel corner. Then we have Phillip Dorsett. I think Dorsett will be one of the big breakout players in the league next season. This is a great class from what we've seen early on. Hopefully Grigson will repeat his success in this years draft.
