After we beat the Falcons tomorrow night...
What do we do in Week 17???

AlaskaSaints 12-24-2011 10:37 PM

We have choices?!

I DO NOT want to hear about resting starters. We have work to do.

And we are not getting any help.

I agree - I see no help on the horizon.

However, I think I would watch the scoreboard on the Rams-49ers and pull the starters if it gets out of hand.

However, doubt that would happen because :

1) The NFL is thinking about flexing our game (after 49ers - Rams game)
2) San Fran doesn't seem to blow many people out

Saints played starters last year against Tampa in the hopes of Panthers beating Atlanta and giving the Saints the NFC South title.

As a result, Jimmy Graham and Malcolm Jenkins were injuried and unavailable for the playoff game against the seachickens.

Saints should play starters for a half and get as big a lead as they can and after halftime play the second string

Get the Brees passing record out the way.
Wrap up NFC South.

Offense: switch out the 2 starting RBs for the other 2, that sort of thing so that all players are in a competitive mood going into the playoffs.
Defense: keep them in with mixing up their 2011 GW cover the end zone defense and their how we used to play defense to clarify the respective advantages before the playoffs.

WHODAT has some really valid points. IN a meaningless game (which it may be) we need to play smart & Plan for the playoffs!!

If they flex our game that would be great, that would make Paytons decision a lot easier, I would at least start them no matter of what the outcome. If the 49ers lose it's a no brainer. We still need to take care of our buisness at hand " The Dirty Birds", then see how it goes. I want this game to clinch tht NFC South really bad, I never want the Falcons to have anything on our Saints but a loss.

You play full throttle as long as you have a chance. Unless the 49ers are ahead by a unsurmountable lead you play all your starters and play to win. If that happens then you pull all starters and put scrubs in but maybe give back up running backs some reps as well as some of our back up linebackers. I would hate for the 49ers to be ahead by 3 points and see us resting.

Play the starters and leave them in unless the Niners are blowing out the Rams.

I thought I heard that the Failcone game for week 17 has already been flexed, and that there was talk of flexing ours. I think we play the starters until we are sure the Rams are laying down for the whiners.
