It would be pretty crazy to keep your best players on the bench (or practice squad). The situation is bad enough as it is with the existing starters. I'd hate to just throw in the towel for the season and play bad players, just to get them "development" time. Heck, some of those guys may not even be in the NFL a year from now anyway.
