Rest game? We're in the middle of a BATTLE for a first round bye into the playoffs with the Saints and this is a huge game for us, what if we have to face them again in Indy? Rest will slow this team, we need to keep fighting coming down the final stretch or we'll be one and done in the playoffs.
I don't know where you guys keep getting this "we should rest some players" because it's just not going to happen until we have nothing else to play for, plain and simple.
