They really should start resting up after the packer game imo.
Plenty of time to rest when we rap up the "Bye Week" for best record.
Not until then....Pour it ON!
Yeah, if they want to go one and done.
Every time this team has rested players, they have not sniffed the Super Bowl. Coincidence? Maybe, but I have never liked that stuff. Resting players and pulling starters is for the Colts.
The playoff bye week!
Yeah, 'cause giving player three-plus weeks off before their first playoff game has always worked so well for the Colts.
It's no coincidence the year they won the SuperBowl they were a wildcard team.
chances ARe aaron rodgers won't play next game and packers have no running game.
March 1. Ask the Colts how that works.
Yeah, resting starters before you've clinched the number one seed would be REALLY smart.
Patriots still need 2 wins to clinch the number one seed.
True, but remember what happened to welker last r year when the pats had nothing to play for.
Oh he'll play.
They NEED him too!
Our last two games are division/conference games. Any sense of what those mean?
I want to see them go full out, rest the guys who are a bit banged up though. But if you mean have Hoyer play full games then no not the way to go. It worked for the saints but, in recent years teams that go into the playoffs on a roll have done better.
the pats clinch a bye with 1 more win.
In any of the other SB runs, when have the Pats rested their starters for more than a half?
Like Indy????......not gonna happen....not under BB
New pats fan doesn't know how BB works.
He left today's game with a confirmed concussion. He has a current season history in this area of injury. I'm not sure the league will allow him to play next week. Also, the games following next week's for the Packers are far more important to them than a non-conference game like next week's against NE. I'll be surprised if he plays.
Do not take that to the bank. 2nd concussion this year. The decision won't be his, or even his coaches. This one will be made by doctors, and they ain't playing when it comes to head injuries. Either way. I don't care. I think we spank them either way.
I don't think you rest starters. I do think you manage some things:
1) Snap count for players that may be wearing down
2) Opportunities for players that could use some reps (Butler, Fletcher, Page, Chevis, Sergio, Deaderick, Edelperson, etc.)
3) Days/games off for anyone nursing an injury
I think they have been doing a good job with these areas (except with McCourty, who may get some well-deserved downtime now) all along. Apart from these, keep everyone sharp and on schedule.
