You play for the seeding and bye, without question....it may not work out that way, but that's the only way to approach it imo...this reporter just needs to write about something to full space...
And btw, the Green Bay game ALWAYS matters....
And that is probably "good" that we will need the last game for seeding so that question is not even an issue, hated that in 2006, we rested many and the one's that did play, weren't really there( yeah rex took the heat for admitting it- but you could tell the rest of them didn't care or show either and I hated it!)... So really want to Sweep them out!..and "if" they win sunday, a "W" by us eliminates them from the playoff's which is just the perfect icing on the Cake!
I'll admit that having a bye in the playoffs kind of makes me nervous (then again so does everything, lol). I almost think continuing play may be more beneficial, though I readily admit that the opportunity to "heal up" is needed. I just worry about coming out flat and then ending up in a hole score wise.
We have been incredibly fortunate on the injury front. I don't like seeing Major Wright go down, and so don't want him to try to come back too soon. I'd rather have him for the playoffs.
I understand what Mully is saying, I just tend to think more along the lines of "if it ain't broke....".
Had a bye in 2006 playoffs...look how that turned out.
No, the NFC is not where the problems will be...its the AFC.
