I think this year is tending to remove doubt that you play to win right up to the end no matter what. That said, would the Giants be in better or worse shape if they had rested starters and played plain vanilla. I don't mean in terms of psychologically and how it enabled them to make it to the super bowl -- I mean in terms of allowing the Patriots to see their game plan. I think the Giants having shown their game plan for trying to beat the Patriots gives our coaching staff a good advantage. It works both ways too, of course, but we were going to try to win that game no matter what. If the Giants had just gone plain vanilla, we'd have less to work with. Worked out ok, I think. Same ref for this game, by the way, as in week 17.
