Default Re: Will the Texans rest starters?

You rest starters when you're 13-2, not when you're 2-13.

Even if we win we would have the #2 pick at worst so I could care less about losing to protect the #1 pick. It would be pretty funny if we finished 3-13 and 2 of those wins were against Tennessee.

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.

I thought we locked the #1 pick losing against the broncos.

Why does everybody seems to think we need another loss to secure it?

I actually didn't know that. When I multi-quote I usually copy & paste and then refresh the page to copy the 2nd person, so thanks.

The Redskins only have 3 wins and would give the #1 to the Rams if Houston wins and Washington loses to the Giants. The worse the Texans can get is the #2 pick behind St. Louis.

I thought that the tiebreaker was the strength of schedule

with the same number of wins, the team with the easiest schedule wins the first pick

http://www.theredzone.org/Features/N...fSchedule.aspx

here it says that we have an easiest schedule than the redskins, so they should get #2 pick overall (rams will get it in the end, but you get the point)

PS: sorry for the two similar posts in 2 different threads

Half our starters are already on IR, the other half isn't worth a crap anyway. There's no difference between them and whatever is left of the backups.

This season is finally over after this Sunday. My gawd it's been horrible.

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.
It's "Brooks Reed" genius. If you're going to mouth off, at least know how to spell the players' names.

I'm rooting for a loss and I am not ashamed. I won't be upset ether way it turns out though. A win does nothing but give the Rams an opportunity at the #1 pick and give Phillips a glimmer of hope for the hc vacancy. I don't like losing but after 13 losses in a row what is the point. I see more negatives than positives from a win. Either way the offseason is going to start when the clock hits 0:00 at the end of the 4th quarter. I just can't seem to get worked up for the last game of an awful season. I'm already in draft/head coach searching mode.

I apologize. I really don't respond to threads like i should, but to individual posts as if I were having a conversation. Perhaps because I'm an old fogy and set in my ways. I even use gen one phone because the smart phones are too smart for me.

If Washington loses and we win our records are identical and we lose the tiebreaker due to strength of schedule. A Texan tie or loss or a Washington tie or win clinches the number one seed. But we do have a top 2 pick locked up.

Yes I noticed, the problem was the site I was looking had the Texans with the easiest schedule between the 2 teams.

anyway I think the question should be "Will the Texans BENCH the starters?"

Rest implies they will be used later, and to me "next year" doesn't count as "later"
