Re: Kubiaks top Priority Sunday: Beat Titans or rest Starters for W-C Playoff game ?
IMO if you are going to play Yates for the playoffs (obvious we are) you leave him out there the entire game.
Other key starters I say a 2Q game at most to keep the dust off them, other than that. you let the game play out as it will.
Nothing guarenties a W by playing all our guys risking injury as if the game was vital, just as nothing guarenties a L by playing our backups.
Sure, going into POs with 3Ls isn't ideal, but neither is going in with a rookie QB. I would rather risk the 3L streak going in than injuries to anyone else.
As I said before I could see Bud telling the Titans if they don't beat us, hurt us just to kill that much more hope, they are dirty enough.
