i just dont see the benefit of resting. This team is full of rookies and young guys. They need all the meaningful experience they can get.

Flip a coin.

When Luck is getting dumped by Watt all day, they'll be running a risk, for no tangible gain.

The Texans are going to play because of today, so maybe the Colts swing back?

Take your pick.

I'm pretty sure the Colts play to win. I'm not sure it's a great idea though.

I think you play to win. With that said, when you have nothing to play for you play smart. Luck needs to get rid of the ball quickly and avoid getting hit and needs to only throw to receivers when they are not in danger of getting decapitated. Defensively they need to play disciplined and not play with reckless abandon.

If they can win playing good fundamental ball that's great. If they have to lay it all on the line to get the win, then it's not worth it at this point in the season. This is dress rehearsal for the playoffs.

I honestly don't think resting players helps.

I don't think it hurts either. If resting players hurts a team, then how come people aren't complaining about bye weeks?

I think if someone isn't 100% healthy or the team has a substantial lead in the game, players should be rested.

Well yes I agree with that, but people are talking about going into the game and resting main starters like Luck or Wayne.

 

I think we had plenty of bad karma the last decade of resting starters in the last couple weeks. I feel that was why he didn't go past the Divisional round in 2005, that team should have won the Super Bowl.

It would be so fun to knock Houston from #1 to #3!!!!!!!!!

Wouldn't  it be MORE FUN to knock the Ravens out in the playoffs?

I might be wrong but Pagano never struck me as "a resting healthy starters" type of guy. From the moment he walked in here he seemed to want us to go all out in everything.

 

 

PLEASE destroy the Texans.   I hate them.

    • I disagree. Erik Walden is weak at the POA, can get washed by TEs, and doesnt set an edge very well at all. He does things at an average NFL level, he does nothing at a high level. Plenty of teams have difference makers at Sam OLB....Ingram, Perry, Houston, extc. No they're not easy to find, but settling for a 32 year old and not even trying to upgrade is not the answer. I dont blame any local media they got over there in Indy for calling him that. Call it like you see it. The fact that he was our best edge rush last year is pretty disturbing, and if we go into next season the same way  we'll have a total under 20 sacks again. I hate that excuse of what else are we ganna do? Who else could play better? How does any other team upgrade any position, through draft and FA. Its time, the re build has started and if Erik doesn't take a compromisable contract let him walk. No more then 5 mil/yr
