Question, If, and that is a big if, but if we beat NY Sunday.

I have heard several say we can then rest our starters against N.O. and then have a bye in 1st week of playoffs. So if you do rest the starters do they lose a sh1tload of momentum since they would be on a roll? I mean would Smitty, Pep, Jake and company come back rusty as hell if they were off that long?

At the same time, I know you hate to lose one to a senseless injury in a meaningless game too.

So where do you draw the line?

Yeah play them about half the downs. Keep DWill fresh, let Stewart run a lot to get more experience, get Jarrett out there. It's also a good time to try some new plays and things like that.

No apparently you think is the a$$hole-fan-holier-than-thou-board. :puke:

Why do some insist on commenting that others' posts are not justified? He did preface it with "a big if" and has a legit question about resting players. If you can't contribute to the discussion then stay out of it.

IMO it is a bad thing to rest players and has been proven many times in recent years. While the threat of injury is significant, it is important to keep players in the winning mindset and in game shape. I agree with the others that said to play them but not for the whole game...especially if we get out to a nice lead.

Someone has to be the a-hole that keeps Panthers fans from looking past the biggest regular season game in Panthers history.

I agree that we should play the starter at least half of the game and pray for no injuries.

Play them 1st half. Then get Jarrett and Hackett out there, get Moore some snaps.

I would never ever rest starters, when the team has a bye week particularly. At most, they get most of the third Q and the whole 4th off. Kind of like the third preseason game.

i think we can rest guys like dangelo, smitty, hoover, peppers, beason and some of the linemen, but some of them need to play. especially jake. he looked like ass for 3 weeks after our bye. i dont even feel comfortable with the bye week for jake,

jake, the cornerbacks, godfrey, stewart, jarret and hackett all need to play a full game.
