Re: Now the $64K question

Play the backups. Don't expose Brees to any shots. Run, run, and run Bell, Hamilton and Bush until their tongues hang out. Players that shouldn't play; Brees, PT, Colston, Shockey, W. Smith, Ellis, Vilma, Sharper, Porter and Greer. Man up the WR's all day which Jenkins and McKenzie are best at. Put 8 or 9 in the box which Harper and Reis do best to stop the run. Come back to the Big Easy and practice HARD. It's not going to happen that way and probably shouldn't. But, this may the Saints ONE shot at the Super Bowl. It's certainly the best in 40 years. I wouldn't take any chances against the physical Panthers. The biggest reason for the Saints dropoff is the injuries to the defense. With three weeks rest and a little luck, they should be at full strength for the first playoff game.

Re: Now the $64K question

Play the starters the whole first half so they can get their mojo back and let the backups finish it out

Re: Now the $64K question

Play them for the 1st half, get in some good drives and points on offence and good stops and hard tackles on defence. Pull them out for the second half!
GEAUX SAINTS!!!!

Re: Now the $64K question

They all just look worn out to me. The defense especially. They are not flying to the ball the way they did the first half of the season. The offense just looked bored the second half of Sunday's game. Maybe a rest would help them, I don't know. I agree with the "treat it like a preseason game."
