Would sitting out key players like Willis, Gore etc benefit us more than "aiming" for a 1st round bye when players all over the NFL are dropping like flies?
The Saints have a cup cake schedule and the NFL loved Steelers were handed down the longest rest possible for a west coast trip.
Let players like Kaep, Hunter, Kyle Williams, Aldon Smith get some reps and lets plan a 3 game playoffs.
Because if we are the #4 seed we likely play two games on the road and a wild card....
We need all the advantages we can get. Most of our games have been extremely close, even the wins.
If we get the two seed we don't play a wild card, get a home game, then one game on the road if GB advances. If they don't we host another game.
