Thank you San Fran!

Beat the Vikings and the Indy game means nothing.

Dont think i want to rest our starters regardless, especially as bad as they have looked. Want them to get in sync before the play-offs.

Agree, I am not a believer in resting starters. Historically that has never been a good strategy.

Trap game? Are you serious? Trap games are when one team is looking ahead. We're playing for 2 weeks rest for our starters, HFA, and an easier road to the Super Bowl. There's nothing about this game that indicates its a trap in any way. Plus, we're playing against one of the best running backs to ever play the game.

Default Re: One more win = AFC #1 Seed

I really hope New England doesn't lose out and take the 4th seed (provided Baltimore wins one).

If I'm them I'd rather come here than go to Denver in the Divisional round.

Still, we can only control our own fate. Let's clinch on Sunday!

If we wrapped up HFA heading into the final game, guess what I would do?

Start Case Keenum at QB, Grimes at RB, Harris and Routt at CB, Keo at Safety, and basically let Andrew Luck have 7,000 yards and 12 TDs.

HFA. Rest your starters, no matter what history says you should or shouldn't do heading into the playoffs.

Beat the Vikings. Rest them for the 2nd half of the colts game. Then let TJ go in vs AL and the colts.

Default Re: One more win = AFC #1 Seed

I hope that we win out. We need to play starters in the last week just to get them reps for the bye week. 2 weeks off is a little too much.

Good thing is that we will play #4-6 seed in our first game if we remain the #1 seed. So that's Baltimore, Indy, Cincy. We have a good shot against any of those opponents.

I think you may see some guys play in the final week, but guys like Arian, Andre, and JJo NEED the extra rest. We've been fortunate to have our big 3 healthy all year, but those guys don't even need to stretch for that game.

I would play Schaub for a series or 2 with the starting O-Line, but that's it.

Texans have to win here vs MIN. Our history @IND is you know scary bad.
MIN on road are 2-5 with wins
WK4 MIN20@DET13
WK15 MIN36@STL22
Big problem is Peterson is a mad man right now, he can not be stopped so our O needs to show up big. J.Allen very scary too.

Would've kept Wes Welker from wiping out his knee prior to the '09 playoffs.

If there is nothing to play for in week 17, the players will know it. And play like it. There's nothing to gain in terms of momentum. There's everything to lose in terms of a possible injury. The only move is to sit your key players.

Interestingly, the Colts may very well be playing for nothing in week 17. Should they win in KC next week, the Colts will have a wildcard spot sewn up. Very likely that Luck, Wayne, Freeney, and other key Colts would be wearing caps on the sideline. It would basically be a preseason game for both sides.

I think that's where the term "key" players comes into play. I said that I would play Schaub and our starting O-line, but only for a series or 2. Arian sits, OD probably sits, AJ sit on the offensive side. On defense, I would probably only sit JJo, Antonio, and JJ and play the rest of the starters for about 2 series as well. Certain guys need rest like Arian who has carried the ball way too much this year. It would be nice to see Tate get 20 carries and get into a rhythm heading into the playoffs.
