Will Niners Rest Their Starters?

Recommended Posts

The niners won today. And have clinched a first-round bye, dont know which seed though. there is a chance they could play the last game if they dont already have the #1 seed. Do you think they will rest their starters against the rams? If the rams win we get the first pick, which alot of people on this forum want.

I guess they did then. Well then Maybe midway though the 3rd quarter with a big lead they'll rest the starters. I don't think Jim would like to lose, even if it's meaningless. He is just that kind of guy.

They'll probably rest Willis, Gore and Justin Smith to start the game. Then at halftime Alex and Vernon may come out. The Rams have a very good chance, especially since the game is in St Louis.

They haven't clinched yet they need the Saints to lose

also if the packers lose their next 2 games (highly unlikely I know) and the Niners win next week the Niners get the #1 seed

They have already clinched a first-round bye. Not sure which seed though. First or second...

The Packers are going number 1, they're going to kill the Bears. I'm pretty sure they clinched it too. Anyways, it's a battle between NO and SF for #2 and if the Saints win tonight they get it.

The Niners win the tie-break over the Saints therefore, the Niners win a first round bye if the Saints lose to the Falcons on Monday.

If the Saints win Monday, both the Saints and Niners will be going all-out next week trying to get the bye.

We can just hope the Colts & Rams win. Wonder if Bradford will start next week guess only time will tell if the sprain will heal up?? With him & Jackson in the lineup @ home it wouldn't surprise me if they won. They are pretty terrible though.

If the Saints win Monday, I doubt the Niners will rest anyone and risk losing to the Rams and missing-out on a first round bye.

Wow...some people really want the Rams to win. I hope they get crushed, and we smoke the Jaguars, just to see how half of this board will react. I couldn't care either way, but I will be viewing for that, should it come to pass.

Doogan, I have been siding with you alot but I dont think you should be saying the " I hope we beat jax, No Luck" stuff anymore. I still agree with you, but the posters get your point, and they seem to be getting ticked off at every post you make now.

And that is supposed to concern me?

Besides, that is the first time I said I hope we beat Jacksonville, and hope St. Louis loses. Go ahead, search my post history. That's the only time I've ever said it. I also haven't said, "No Luck." I just want to see how THE PEOPLE react if we end up drafting #2. It has nothing to do with Luck, just the people who think the Colts are doomed forever and ever, even with Peyton, if we don't draft him.

If you look again, they took that down. They did have it up as a headline earlier, but there was no article supporting the statement.

Here is their playoff scenario page:

If you click on the niners:

CLINCHED: The 49ers clinched the NFC West. San Francisco clinches a first-round bye with a New Orleans loss.

REMAINING OPPONENTS: at Rams (2-13)

COMMENT: If both the 49ers and Saints win out, San Francisco would get the No. 2 seed.

Its crazy to not want the first pick.

just crazy thinking.

Luck, Suck, or *... the value is in the first pick. 2nd pick is worth MUCH less.

I think he just likes to stir up trouble and hear himself speak.

niners are (12-3-0) , saints (11-3-0) if Saints win Mond & next week SainTs are 13 & 3

while if niners lose next week they are 12 & 4, so seems Saints would take it

Find one post of people saying we're doomed forever if we don't draft Luck.

We won't even get into you wanting to hurt the team to see people's reaction on the internet.

I think rams win this game. Last home game of the season people fighting for jobs 49ers looked average against the Seahawks with all their starters. Rams win a close game.

Hope you are right but the Rams sure didn't look like much against Pittsburgh.

On another note, I predicted the Vikes would upset the Jeckyl & Hyde Skins though. Seen too much Redskins football to not see that one coming. lol

One #1 pick obstacle down...one more to worry about.

The only way the Rams beat the 49ers is if the 49ers rest their starters considerably after the Falcons beat the Saints on MNF. That would mean that the 49ers have clinched the bye and a #2 seed in the NFC.

I am sure a lot of us are going to be Falcons fans tonight :).

I added him to my ignore list WEEKS ago. After I got booted for a "discussion" with him.

In his mind, his opinion is law. No one else's opinion matters.

Kinda like the old guy who yells at all the kids in the neighborhood for having fun. Unhappy, miserable person.

Yep, they did not have Patrick Willis for the Seahawks game. If they have the bye and Patrick Willis healthy, watch out, the 49ers' D is for real. The 49ers' issue is they cannot let the scoring get out of hand because Alex Smith cannot keep up. But they are the true team that is under the radar, not the Packers or Saints.

I love how every time people start responding to that Doogan guy he runs away with his tail between his legs and refuses to try to make a comeback. I prefer it this way, it means I don't have to read more of his anti-Luck rubbish.

    • IMO there is no way in hell JB shouldn't have played vs Miami. We win that we are 6-3, that alone changes the season up to this point even. I think Reich thought Miami was so bad that he could gamble and play Hoyer and still win. That was a mistake.
    • That's actually not true. The Pacers have proven they can win without him. They are 33 and 20 without him since he's been a Pacer. Sabonis even has a better defensive rating than Myles does this year AND can actually score and rebound as well. I don't think it's much of coincidence that with Sabonis getting starter minutes he's EASILY shown he's the all around much better player.    The comparison? 4 years in the league(s) and still pretty much the same players they were in college, probably wouldn't get much in a trade for either one, and both are making ~18M this year. It doesn't get any more comparable than that... Myles' and Jacoby's ships have sailed. It's time to move on.
    • I don't know if this topic should be merged with another but it's something I need to get off my chest.  I've been contemplating where everything went off track for us.  And I keep coming back to the Steelers game & JB's injury.  But the more and more I think about it, I think Frank's actions in that game & the following week have cost us this season.   I came to this conclusion when I saw Justin Fields take a very similar shot to his knee in the OSU vs UM game.  OSU's coach put Fields back into the game.  The Buckeyes stabilized & Fields led them to victory that day & since to the playoffs.  I bring this up because it got me thinking about how our coach handled a similar situation.  JB came out & Hoyer threw a TD to Doyle (who was so wide open that JB could have made that throw but Hoyer did make some other good throws so I'm not disparaging his play that day) and Frank never looked back.   They showed him on the sideline and he could truly care less how his starting QB was doing...  It was as if he had been waiting for the moment where he could yank JB & put in a QB that he preferred.  How he handled the next week was more proof.  JB apparently took all the reps because he was healthy enough to play and as the starter wanted to.  But Frank didn't truly want him as the QB. So what does he do? He starts Hoyer, supposedly with minimal practice reps, because he felt that even with minimal reps, Hoyer was better than JB.   Unfortunately, it blew up in his and all Colts fans' faces when Hoyer laid an egg.  When Frank pulled JB for BH our season spiraled down the drain.  I believe that JB beats Pittsburgh and Miami and our season is looking very different despite the kicking woes & injuries & JB's limitations.  We were 5-2 at the time.  You don't make a boneheaded change like that.  You dance with the one that you brought...  The guy that lead us to 5-2 & 2nd in the AFC...   So I've reached the conclusion that Frank doesn't truly want JB as his QB.  And in that case we must move on to another QB next season.  I defended JB because the guy won and his teammates loved him.  But his limitations have worn on me as things have spiraled down the drain.  But he isn't alone in getting the blame.  I'm putting a lot of it on Frank & his decision to not trust his QB that got him to 5-2.     So we'll get a QB in here that he prefers next year but he won't be getting any more free passes from me.  He better win with whomever it is because I just watched him sabotage this season when the AFC was open for the taking.  If Luck said he wanted to come back in the Steelers game would Frank have ignored him & kept JB or whomever was the backup in the game?  Not a chance.  Would he have let Luck take all the reps the following week and then went with the backup?  Not a chance.  He wanted JB out and leapt at the opportunity when it was there.  Unfortunately, all he did was sink our season...
