How do you feel about SP giving the team most of this week off?
 
Some guys even went on trips. SP is really riding the rest philosophy. Really hope I'm wrong but it concerns me. What say you, B&G? Was this week spent wisely??

For those that were unaware, the rest and trips were mentioned here and here.

They are going to have fresh legs against a team that just went through a heavyweight slug fest that went the distance. The end wasn't even settled in 15 rounds. It had to be decided with a street fight in the parking lot.

The Saints have one of the oldest squads in the league. Rest and relaxation is a must at this point. Also, only the healthy would have traveled. Anyone receiving treated were required to stay at home and get daily treatment. Many of the healthy ones stayed at home and did honey-dos and such. Besides, giving the week off is standard for teams getting the bye. Nothing new here.

They looked tired and slow the last 4 weeks. They need to get their legs back. I'm OK with it.

Other than Sharper, Fujita and Shanle, our starters are all young players.

Yeah we discussed that earlier this season.

Brunnel (39), Carney (45), Kyle (38) and Sharper (34) skew that average way upward.

And there's only 2 years difference between the oldest and youngest team.

Our starters are among the youngest in the league.
