Default Do we play dalton and Green next week?

If the Ravens beat the Giants, which it appears they will, do we play our stars next week, or save them for the playoffs? Obviously the game will not help or hurt our playoff position.

Yes you do imo, because we have momentum and we dont wanna take a week off and break that momentum. We want to go in as hot as possible. But we have to shut them down for the 4th quarter imo, make sure you balance momentum and saving injuries. But the worst thing we could do now is kill all of our momentum.

Yes, gotta stay hot and keep the momentum. Can't let players take a week off and be rusty.

I think it gets played like a pre-season game.

I think that they might be rested but I do not agree with resting starters and if we went into the preseason beating both Pits and Balt that would give us a lot of momentum.

Sit the whole D as well. We will not beat the Pats without them playing at 100%.

I'd like to to the answer to this question before I shell out $$$$ to go to the game. Of course I'd love to be there, but if my fave players are sitting this one out, I'll stay home and watch it here, for free.

Nope, they have us on common wins apparently. Just tried it on the playoff calculator. We're a lock for 6th.

New England could change I guess, could they jump Houston? Denver have the Chiefs so forget about them being the 3rd seed.

Agree, with the other guys, gotta play them. Besides, the offense needs the work...

Hmmm

I'd like to say partially. Let them play, but pull them out like a pre-season game.

Let Gradkowski play a bit and give some other guys reps.

As much as you want momentum... you also want your back-ups to knock off the rust.

That way if they are called upon they mighr be able to rise to the occasion.

Please don't slam me for saying "Give Grad some play time". You just never know what can happen in the playoffs.

Chances are they may sit some players as well. So it wouldn't hurt.

Don't rest anyone on offense. They need to get it together for the playoffs.

The momentum I'd like to see broken is the less than stellar play our offense has put out the last month. Sitting them next week might just help get their sights back on the prize.
As for the defense, give the backups all of the snaps possible - injuries to any of our starters will definitely hurt us in the long run.

Rest only the players that are questionable and doubtful.

Wow on a side note...

Didn't Allen look completely horrible.

Someone posted a thread about DreK being a bust.

THIS GUY LOOKS LIKE A BUST FOR US if anyone does... and he's getting paid.

Get Boom some touches next week. The run offense was so one dimensional reminded me of the losing streak in Oct.

This would be a good week for Still, Thompson, and Iloka to play against the Ravens.

He did for sure, which makes me think all of the guys who plays as little as he's had need to play next week. If nothing else, refresh their memory of the speed of a real game while the consequences matter little.

Bingo

Boom and Peerman. Whalen/Hawkins/Jones/Charles/Tate

Sit our D players and let them rest while our Rooks get game time.

So we play a meaningless game for momentum? And if a key player goes down? Its totally illogical. We could also play horribly and go in with a worse attitude.

Rest your guys, gameplan for the Patriots for 2 weeks. Patriots week starts right now!

Sit our defense, sit AJ, sit Dalton, sit Gresham, sit Hawkins.

Don't even gameplan for the Ravens. Use it as a bye week to prepare for the Patriots - we will need every single day.
