Re: Now the $64K question

Let the starters play the first series on O and D and then take everyone out. Why risk injury

Re: Now the $64K question

Play the healthy starters for a half and let the backups start the 2nd. If anyone is nicked up, sit them and allow ample time for that person to get as close as they can to 100% coming our playoff game. I don't care too much for the "rusty" aspect of it as far as the defensive players. If you can't get game ready going against our offense in practice for the next couple of weeks, then you'll never be ready.

Re: Now the $64K question

Drew Brees will be the No. 3 quarterback on Sunday, coach Sean Payton told Peter King.

If true, this is a complete turnaround from what Payton said the Saints would do all week. It sounds like Payton got scared by the Panthers' hot pass rush. Mark Brunell now appears to be in line to start, with Chase Daniel backing him up. All Saints are suddenly risky options in leagues that extend into Week 17. Jan. 1 - 10:08 pm et
