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.

    • I will go 4. I think it's slightly Below Average/close to Average. We did play well at times with Hasselbeck last season but having said that when it counted he even lost to the Texans in Indy. Our O.Line should improve with Kelly and having more depth but it's Average at best and has played Below Average to Poor in most of Andrew's career. Our D.Line could be Good if it can stay healthy - Mathis upcoming year is a mystery on what impact he can provide, of course when Davis is healthy he is a Top 10 corner as well but our D has been up and down from week to week history wise in the Andrew era as well. I think Jackson is Good but overall our LBacking core is suspect. One week our Defense plays Good, then the next it plays Bad! Our SPTeams with Pat and Adam are Great so that helps my rating and TY and Moncrief are Good but we still have little to no run game, Gore is Average at this point in his career. I like this question because if it was asked of Russell Wilson, this would easily be an 8 overall, a 9 when Lynch was there because of him and that Defense they have had, add Wilson to that they were a 10 back in 2013 and 2014. If Andrew gets injured this season we are in deep trouble, it wont be 8-8 Average, Hass made a lot of that happen. It will be closer to 6-10. I think our Coaching staff has a lot to prove too, I do like Chud as I think he will be good for Andrew.    -Bottomline we are a 4 without Andrew. Andrew makes us a 7. 7 is Good but not SB material.
    • What a crazy preseason it has been already with the cancelled HOF game, the impressive play of our rookies and all of the injuries we are dealing with.    Hopefully everybody gets away from this one healthy. I want to see more 3 wide sets from the offense and somebody, anybody to step up at cb on defense.
    • No that was the other Patriots RB (Vereen).  He is a between the tackles guy. 
    • Respectfully,   I think we're just going to agree to disagree on this.   There is some truth in your post,  but not enough, IMO, to draw the bigger conclusions that you have.   So,   we see the same thing differently and we'll leave it at that.....  
    • Does the supporting cast refer only to the quality of the players themselves or are coaches included in that equation too?    So this survey is just a snapshot frozen in time as it stands right now & nothing more?    It's difficult not to project forward on guys like Kelly, Anderson, & Parry though.    I went with a 7. I just wish l felt more confident of our running game right now. That's what worries me.
