    the pats have the #3 spot wrapped up......I think the pats need to work on getting some guys some rest and some others some PT...not saying sit them, but at least reduce the snap count.

    rest:
    wilfork..... 50-60% of the plays
    welker...... workk on routes that don't get him pounded so much
    vollmer...... give cannon a strong look and prep in case vollmer's back gives problems
    jones....... avoid the rookie wall
    hightower..... avoid the rookie wall
    mccourty...... let chung get some time
    ninko

    give PT:
    cannon.....PT would be good
    bolden..... need him in case the others can't hold onto the football
    francis..... because he should be in there
    brace ..... if possible
    chung..... he could be a wildcard.....he basically has 2 games and the playoffs to prove he is worth something to anyone......could get the best football of his career

    Agree with your overall theme. But, we don't have the 3 seed locked up. We are 1gm up on Baltimore. And, they win the tie-breaker. Don't think it matters much in the overall scheme. Guessing wild-cards are Cincy and Indy. Shouldn't matter which one we get.

    They all need to play and win. Football players play football. Its the NFL, the Texans and Broncos could both lose the rest of their games. Long shot yes, but regardless of what people think, the Browns and KC are going to show up and play.

    As long as Denver is playing actual football games, we have to win (BB cannot assume as fans do, that Denver is already in) We need to do whatever that takes and it might be very little next week. The Miami game however may demand a full effort... And of course Baltimore is on our heals.

    The bye is not just a long needed break, it also means, no more occasions for injuries. This is why it can never be assumed lost or gained.

    If you are going to rest offensive linemen so their injuries can heal a bit (Vollmer, Mankins, Connolly) and also rest the top receiving target (Welker), then it becomes imperative to also put Tom Brady on the sidelines and out of harm's way. Somehow I don't see that happening.

    Best scenario is to jump out to a big lead and then take all these guys out after the first possession of the second half.

    I think players playing are better prepared for the next game than players sitting on the sidelines. I don't believe in resting players unless it is to prevent aggravating an injury.
