I wouldn't mind watching Yates throw to Posey for the Colts game. Would be great to see where they're both at right now.

I'm really excited about Posey after this game.

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.
Solid post. Good, good stuff in there.

HFA. Rest your starters, no matter what history says you should or shouldn't do heading into the playoffs.
Typically I would agree. If you do that though, 3 weeks will have gone by of those guys not playing at game speed. Does playing a half in week 17 and going 2 weeks without playing any different? I don't know, but 3 weeks seems like an eternity.

With our luck on injuries to key guys? I'd take guys like Schaub and AJ and Foster and Watt (and JJO and Manning and KJ) completely out of the last game.

I'd tell everyone else that we need zero heroes out there, so keep on your feet and treat this like it's your last preseason appearance before the reg season opener. Head on a swivel, stay on your feet, don't be a hero.

No, I get it. I'm just saying, if you sit the 1's in week 17 it will be 3 weeks (Dec. 23 to Jan. 12/13) of them not playing at game speed. That's a long layoff.

He's gonna get his yards and break off some big runs, so I don't mind if he has a good day yardage wise. The key is making sure Ponder doesn't get comfortable and hurt us. We need to jump out to a big early lead, and just take AD out of the game. We really need to treat this game like a playoff game.

obvs in wk 17 i will prob let my starters play 4 1 qtr only really tho u just have to break it down player buy player if a player feels he needs to play 12 mins before the long lay off then i guess u play him

but either way the layers better know this Vikes game might be the last chance they get to play a full 4 qtrs

HFA. Rest your starters, no matter what history says you should or shouldn't do heading into the playoffs.
Even with our starters playing like they have been, offense and defense have been out of sorts the last 5 games. I think you continue to get them back on the right track. A broken fence cant get fixed if you dont get your hands dirty and work on it first hand.

To win in Indy.... wouldn't that be something to play for?

I don't know, just throwing that out there.

Another thing, one thing I think I've noticed about these guys since the Detroit game, is these guys play to win. I don't know if it's something external, like homefield & what not, it's something inside...... you can definitely see that in Jj Watt.

???? I am only stating the fact when the Texans win one more game in regular season, they will be AFC #1 seed for post season game/s. Where did you get an idea of the above highlighted sentence from my post?
