    Is it ok to do this in Sports

    If you have a spot locked (playoffs) up should you be benched so you wont get hurt?? Even if you can possibly go undefeated?

    I am glad they did this, there is only room for 1 undefeated team (The Dolphins) and Shula said it best after the colts lost.

    He was saying Peyton was one of the greatest quarterbacks to play the game. He wanted to congratulate them on their "run". He also talked about how hard it is to go undefeated.

    Re: Is it ok to do this in Sports

    I'm fairly confident the Colts were trying to prevent injury today and didn't care about the Undefeated season for some reason. They had the game won today before they pulled Manning an all the other starters. They would probably have beaten the Bills next week, but that is a road game in a cold weather situation, so who knows.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    The goal is to win the Super Bowl, if you happen to go undefeated it's just a bonus.

    Re: Is it ok to do this in Sports

    In the article on Sportsline, it sounds like some Colts fans were booing the loss.

    This one is a tough call for me. You want to win them all, but what if that win takes out Peyton Manning? I guess that I'd rather err on the cautious side in a game with so much injury potential.

    imo...It's makes the NFL look like the WWE......

    Every team should be required to play to WIN the game...

    Do you feel the same way about resting pitchers in baseball to "set" your playoff rotation?

    I have never seen resting players yet, that have helped Win a championship, and I am over 50+. This always seems to backfire.....

    I also can not remember a key player getting injured just by playing out the season after a team has clinched, but again I'm old......

    I hope to see the Cubbies do that in the fall.

    At some point, a team has to start preparing for that next step. If they've done the work to earn their playoff spot early, then I'm all for them putting themselves in position to excel in the playoffs.

    yep, I think they lose their edge....1 or 2 extra days fine, but to miss a start or 2....?

    I guess I woud like to see some examples in any Sport when guys took time off and came back better.....?

    Look, while I don't necessarily agree with what the Colts did today - when you have a chance for immortality you take your best shot at it - considering the Colts have everything locked up and the road to the Super Bowl already goes thru Indy, unless it begins manipulating with Vegas lines, the Colts shouldn't be required or forced to do anything. Especially up until today when they owned the AFC, and considering the Jets didn't even stand a chance today until the starters got benched today. Look, I agree with the play to win the game sentiment, but ask the 2007 Patties - would any of them trade in that undefeated regular season for another ring on their finger? Because when it comes right down to it, you don't just play to win the game, you play to win the Lombardi Trophy.

    So is it fair competition for all the other AFC teams in playoff contention or otherwise to play the Peyton, Clark, Addai, Wayne lead Colts and the the Jets get a pass......

    Because if you watched that game, there was a definite difference in level of play in the 2nd half.....?
