    If we do get the #1 AFC seed and HFA in a week or two earlier than week 16 I can almost guarantee you that BB will NOT pull the starters for the playoffs - If he keeps Brady in with a 30 point lead in games I see him not putting in scrubs for the last few games,even if they are irrelevant to positioning.

    The only week Brady and the starters will have off is the bye week

    If it also includes a chance to go 16-0 then its even more probable

    This of course only comes into focus if/when we wrap up the definite #1 or #2 spot early

    I agree. The goal each week is to win and get better in order to win the next week. You can't get better if you don't play. Obviously, the chance to get better outweighs the chance of getting injured, otherwise they wouldn't practice, therefore, the starters play.

    Although, I almost hope they play second stringers for the Jets game and demolish them just to embarass the Mangina.

    Why should the Patriots pull their starters or change to stop scoring?

    Anyone who thinks so should be strong advocates of a mercy rule.


    When any time a team goes up by 4 , 5 or 6 TD the game ends!


    That way no one gets hurt.

    Tell that to Frank and the Bills when they played Houston in the 80s playoff game - Remember 35-3 halftime with Oilers leading?
    Game ended 38-35 Bills
