    I'm hoping so.. all were playing for is the #1 pick, and I would Hate to see Andre or JJ get injured in a meaningless game.. I also believe Matt should be benched since he won't be here next year and let Yates (if healthy) get a start in.. I kno it's early, but I'm hoping we rest our starters for the last game and lock up this #1 pick!!

    I think that would be considered poor form since resting starters at the end of the season is usually reserved for playoff teams. But, sure, why not?

    Playing the starters seems to be a good recipe for losses . :pinned:

    If they rest their starting QB, who will be resting?

    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.

    LOl @ Brooks Reed, yea everyone make's for some good points, I guess my main concern would be Andre and JJ.. seeing as how Joseph left with a injury this week so I doubt he plays

    Not sure why we would rest them...they will have plenty of time to rest up afterwards but on the other hand, why play them in a meaningless game?

    Meh, doesn't matter either way. I am rooting for a win as I desperately need one. Even if it costs us the #1 pick.

    I hope we win. Anyone rooting for a loss to the Titans should be ****ing ashamed of themselves.

    But there's 2 silver linings to losing this game:
    1) seal the #1 pick
    2) help Munchak keep his job

    That'll mire the Titans in mediocrity for a few more years.

    I don't care. I watch for wins. And beating our most hated rival is extremely important to me.

    By win do you mean lose? I'm getting confused.

    Plus Bud will be pissed as he looks up watching his team lose twice in the same season against the worst Texan team ever.

    Me too but I've been apathetic for about 7 weeks. Losses no longer hurt. Since we've been pretty much out of the playoffs, I've been in preseason mode.

    I hate my rivals no matter how bad the team I root for is.

    I hope we beat them by 40.

    This. Play the starters guaranteeing the loss plus keeping Colts and their fans from thinking we tanked a page...I mean took a page from their book.

    Not unless Hell relocated. :D

    In my perfect world the Texans do all they can to win, get the win, and have the Redskins win vs Giants too. That would do it, right?
