Default Should we sit Foster knowing Manning is out?

Now that we know for sure Manning is out, do we sit Foster for an extra week? I vote yes, reason being is we have several other weapons to beat the Colts with without Manning.

We are like Bon Jovi fans right now. You pay to see them and if Jon Bon Jovi (aka Manning) doesn't show, you're pissed. Richie Sambora (Foster) doesn't show, ehh, still getting your moneys worth.

I wouldn't base my decision on whether or not Manning is playing.

If he is healthy enough to play and doesn't need additional rest, play him. And vice versa.

If there is any hesitation from the medical staff whether Foster is ready to go, sit him. The season is a marathon not a sprint. Do not put him back on the field until the doctors have no doubts.

Exactly. If we can't beat a Manningless Colts team with Ward at Tate at RB, and the rest of our offense intact, then we've got problems.

This should be the plan whether Peyton is healthy or not.

^^^ This.

If there's even a niggling thought in the back of ONE guy's brain that MAYBE he needs a little more rest, we should sit Arian and let him heal up a little bit more.

And Peyton has nothing to do with that decision.

If he tweaks it again he is likely out for a month or longer. He needs to get back to no doubt full status. It isn't like our second best guy is ron dayne. We have some depth and can hold down the fort till he gets back. Even if he misses Week 2 we will be fine.

It's a division game, we need to win. Our odds went up a LOT w/o #18 starting.

Default Re: Should we sit Foster knowing Manning is out?

If he's ready to go he plays, if he's not at least 95% he sits. If this game was in Indy, I'd want him to play more but this being a home game, I'd sit him if he's not ready. They'll probably need him more in the next 5 weeks than this one.

Having said that, the Colts are a veteran and playoff tested team. I don't think they're going to lay down for us by any means especially with EVERYONE writing them off. They'd like nothing more than to knock us off in week 1.

A player gets paid to play so let him play if he is ready and he wants to play.

I say sit him out at the start and see how we do. If our offense is failing and we need to establish our run game, let him have a few carries in the second quarter.

LOL.

Yeah. Anybody remember the Raider's game last year? He gets sat for most of the first half and then comes out in the second half and EXPLODES!

Default Re: Should we sit Foster knowing Manning is out?

Here's the deal: the guy didn't practice today and was still rehabbing.. the game is in four days... that's cutting it close...

BUT, I would suit him up, just not start him... if things aren't looking good come third quarter, or if things get bad/too close for comfort in the 4th, dude is getting in... As long as we do not need the guy in there, he should not be in there with this injury... But at the same time, the Texans don't have Foster on the team so he can remain healthy here, they have Foster on the team so he can help them win games, bottom line...

If his help is not needed, he doesn't touch the rock... he for sure doesn't start...
