Play the O for 3 quarters, rest the banged up players on Defense.

Give Greer enough snaps to knock the rust off.

Re: Now the $64K question

I can see it both ways.

If you rest them, we have the lingering taste of the loss to the Bucs and will not play a meaningful game until the weekend of Jan. 17th. Could get rusty in that time.

If you play them and win convincingly, that's great. But if we get beaten badly or even worse - have serious injuries - then we've really screwed up.


It will be interesting to see what SP decides...

Re: Now the $64K question

I don't care what anyone says.
After 2005, there was a time when I didn't know if my favortie team was going to be around anymore.
I'll back in... button hook, side swipe, limp... whatever to get the no. 1 seed.
No matter what we were the best team in the NFC this season.
That's right the Aints!!!!

Re: Now the $64K question

I would rest them ..not worth the injury risk..its a meaningless game..Remember Brees got hurt in that last game in San Diego and the pro bowl..But i want them to stay focused..practice and more practice
