Default Will the Texans rest starters?

I'm hoping so.. all were playing for is the #1 pick, and I would Hate to see Andre or JJ get injured in a meaningless game.. I also believe Matt should be benched since he won't be here next year and let Yates (if healthy) get a start in.. I kno it's early, but I'm hoping we rest our starters for the last game and lock up this #1 pick!!

I think that would be considered poor form since resting starters at the end of the season is usually reserved for playoff teams. But, sure, why not?

Playing the starters seems to be a good recipe for losses .

Default Re: Will the Texans rest starters?

If they rest their starting QB, who will be resting?

I guess Grimes needs to rest if every other RB is injured?

Ryan Griffin, our only TE can rest, I like that Smelly guy because of his name so I guess he can play TE?

Please let Brooke Reed rest, he has been busy doing absolutely nothing all season.

But there's 2 silver linings to losing this game:
1) seal the #1 pick
2) help Munchak keep his job

That'll mire the Titans in mediocrity for a few more years.

This. Play the starters guaranteeing the loss plus keeping Colts and their fans from thinking we tanked a page...I mean took a page from their book.

In my perfect world the Texans do all they can to win, get the win, and have the Redskins win vs Giants too. That would do it, right?

OK! Now you've done it. Now I want to win, badly. Of course from the descriptions I've read, he can't see anything or hear anything in total darkness and alone for all eternity in torment because it didn't have to be that way.

Me too but I've been apathetic for about 7 weeks. Losses no longer hurt. Since we've been pretty much out of the playoffs, I've been in preseason mode.
