It's huge that Unger is back. It shows the concussion issue was only precautionary and nothing with which to be concerned.

We have the line general back!

If we win vs the Steelers, they'll have 2 weeks to rest everyone instead of just the first week of the playoffs.

3 weeks actually. With a win we could rest guys until Jan 13.

We'll have a forced week off. That's enough. Say we beat Pittsburgh I'd hope to see our starters at minimum the first half to mid 3rd quarter vs Carolina.

I'd play most of 'em through the 1st quarter - a couple drives anyway.

Win Sunday and coach should treat week 17 like a 3rd preseason game.

There's absolutely no reason to play the starters in a meaningless game. If you're on the field, you're at risk of being injured. Brees, Kamara, Thomas, Armstead, Jordan, and Lattimore have no need to see the field.
