Come on man...

Injuries happen... with that said. We need to play to win the first half, and stay sharp. Although I don't see a need to "rest" the second half I mean what is that... nothing. That isn't a rest. So I can see them going 3 quarters at least and the game in hand then you can set a few players.

The 9ers have no healthy receivers execpt for Crabtree. This plays right into the Rams weakness which is no CB's. I think this game will be a lot closer than people think. Unless of course the Rams decide to just show up which is looking like more of what will go down.

Here are my mixed bag of thoughts on sitting starters to save for post season.

1. If they are due a roster bonus they lose that. Hurts player.
2. I agree you want all of your players healthy and rested for the post Season.
3. If you are not going to play a game to win why play it at all. Forfeit and get even more players rested and healed. FWIW I think the Pro Bowl is a waste and should never happen again.
4. Lack of regular play can lead to some rust and timing issues.
5. This is one of my pet peeves... Not starting starters and losing a game that doesn't effect you, but does effect another teams playoff status..



**** Finally and most importantly... SCREW Tom Brady. I have had enough of his name along with a few others that are being talked about by the pundits just for sake of name.... If I have to hear just once "Tom Brady, holder of the single season passing record" I am going to vomit my self inside out.*******


Start MF-n Brees..... Never pull him, and make him throw no less than 48 passes. Take this record, brand it with Drew Brees's and the New Orleans Saints name and seal this deal once and for all (or at least a few years). Do not just break this record, SHATTER it!
skymike and jlouhill like this.

So you want 5500 yards!

Sad thing is that it may get broken in a few years, anyway, when the NFL goes to an 18 game schedule (as someone here already pointed out).

5500 yards in an 18 game season is only 306 yards per game. Drew will just have to throw for 6000 that year!

YES I do! Actually, since the game will not effect our season.. Throw every play, Dink... Dunk... Bomb.. Laser.. what ever!

When they go from 16-18 games THEN you put an (*) by the new record.

If I'm the coach (and clearly I am not) I have decided that we don't sit anybody. Period.

The already injured or nicked up, like Lance, can have a seat and enjoy the view and the extra week off. Otherwise get your jocks on and get on the field.
