Default How badly do the Pats want the 3rd seed?

Do you think they'd be willing to play key players the whole game to beat us and clinch the 3 seed? If this were to happen they'd have a better chance at hosting the AFC championship and ensure they get to play the 6th seed in the first round.

From what I read of Marvin Lewis transcript, it seems like if the 3 seed is on the line at night they just might play their starters for a win on Sunday night:

http://www.bengals.com/news/article-...3-18aa0c0635f2

Q: Will you err on the side of caution this weekend against the Jets by resting some players, or will you just continue playing the way you’ve been playing?
ML: “It will be another Sunday for us. I’ll make those adjustments later in the week, and as we go. We’re going to approach it as a game we need to win.”

Q: Could you adjust that plan even on Sunday after the early games?
ML: “It could.”

Thoughts?

Default Re: How badly do the Pats want the 3rd seed?

I think they'll play their starters...at least I hope they do. I really think we're going to win this one, and if we get in it will be a good precursor to the playoffs, in which either way we'll be playing a team we've already beaten once (Cincy/Pats). I think if we get in and the Bengals lose, we might actually have momentum against the Patriots again, regardless of whether they play their starters or not.

I think Texans have shown they can keep up with any team in the NFL and the Pats aren't looking superhuman this year. So if the Texans are really desperate to show they want their coach and WANT to show the fans that they are capable of having a winning season, we will win!

Exactly. The Colts are clearly better than the Pats this year and we took them to the wire twice. I don't understand the throw in the towel attitude of some.

Good. If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. And I think it cheapens and disrespects the game to turn it into a glorified exhibition game. And a pox on the Colts house.

Sure we would! We only need one to succeed to keep our hopes alive. We'll even be watching if both of our four o'clock games win. I'd love me a number five seeding.

I hope the Pats play their best. If we somehow make the playoffs all signs point to an immediate rematch the very next weekend. What better way to get a mental edge over them than beating them at their best the week earlier?

Belichick: ‘Whoever plays, plays’
Posted: December 29th, 2009 | NFL.com Staff | Tags: Bill Belichick, New England Patriots

Around the league, a handful of coaches are dealing with the same end-of-season dilemma — and the questions that accompany it — of how much to play their starters, or at least players who are less than 100 percent, in Week 17 games where playoff seeding has been decided. You can make an argument the scenario is playing out in San Diego, New Orleans and Cincinnati. And we already know about Indianapolis.

True to form, Patriots coach Bill Belichick isn’t revealing anything about how much his key players will play against the Texans. The Patriots — like the Bengals — aren’t locked into a playoff seed, but will either be the No. 3 or 4 seed, and will have a road playoff game in the divisional round.

Belichick said in a conference call with reporters Tuesday he hasn’t had that discussion with his staff.

“I wouldn’t even anticipate doing it, having that discussion right now,” Belichick said. “What’s going to happen now is we’re going to go through the game plan, players will come in tomorrow, and everyone is going to get ready to play. And that’s how we’re going to approach it. Whoever plays, plays. Whoever doesn’t play, doesn’t play. But it’s like that every week. We could go out there and on the first play of th game something could happen and somebody else could be in there.

“Everyone needs to be ready to go all of the time.”
Linky: Belichick: ‘Whoever plays, plays’


I'm not sure what to make of his comments.

My feelings as well. I see no reason why we can't beat the Pats.

Can the Texans play with NE? Certainly. Are the Pats more beatable this year? Certainly. However, the team is still more then capable of coming out and putting a beat down on any team.

My big concern is that the past few weeks we've slipped by some not so great teams and went into run out the clock mode in the second half. This team cannot do that against the Pats. If they want to win this game they better show up to play 60 minutes and be prepared to go against a team that will be prepared to play. 3-4 defenses also concern me with this team.

That said, I'd be happy if the team manages to squeak out a win!

Keeping up with good teams and beating good teams are two different subjects.

That being said, I think the Texans have a shot of beating the Patriots this weekend, but it will depend on how many quarters they come to play.
