No rest until watching the probowl on tv due to playing in the superbowl. Take advantage of every series and gel, gel, gel until holding a trophy above the heads. We played Rice, Pierce and Allen, that's resting/sharing. McKinnie was on the field, Ray Lewis is resting right now. Coach out of these games Harbaugh, you won me back over. Caldwell, continue and explode the offense, the fuse has been lit. Pees, the intensity is unmatched of all year, keep turning the nob and shake the ground touchdowns are made on.

Most likely the Bengals will rest up, since they have nothing at all to gain by winning, other than pride and momentum. That should help us. It's a longshot for us to move up, but one never knows. Miami might come to play and also the Patsies haven't played well lately. They did get chewed out by Brady, though.

Yes. The should. Jimmy, Reed, Ed, Terrell, Yanda, Ellerbe, & Pollard. I kind of want Anquan to reach 100 yards. but he might need the rest.

I say rest,there is no way Miami will beat the Patriots in New England.Once Again the Patriots go to the Super Bowl and then get the NFL's easiest schedule.In all honesty we should have the 3 seed cause we beat the Eagles earlier in the year but the replacement refs took away a Jacoby Jones TD!! Thats 2 TD 'S that have been stolen from Jacoby and Joe this season!!Plus we beat the Pats already this year. I don't care what seed we are,If we play like we did Sunday We can beat any team in the NFL!!!!!!!!!!

I see us playing hard for 1st half, then decide to pull few starters if we are leading. Otherwise, if this game is close, This game will be no different than any other games.

@Stephenjr.....hate to burst your bubble, especially since I'm no fan of the Patsies, but we had a slightly easier schedule than they did, going by strength of schedule. Our combined opponents had a .484 winning pct., while theirs had a .502.

Give anyone with even a scratch a rest and give the healthy players and backups a chance.

Well, the Bengals said they'll be using their starters according to rotoworld. I want to say play our staters also to keep our momentum going. But if we play horrible or someone important gets injured, that can easily cost us in the long run (playoff wise).

This is the energy we been looking for all year long. They was resting on a 3 game losing streak now they are fired up. Rest comes with heavy rotation while staying use to contact. Research our rest history vs got to get it history.

look at the packers last year, i don't know if resting players is really the answer. the offense should be getting into a stide right now to hit it hard in the playoffs.

Should we rest our QB and give our backup a shot or let Flacco play a half while Tyrod takes the second half

I agree with Hugostiglitz. I think the offense needs to at least play a half to maintain some continuity and consistency. With the defense, you get what you get and the guys that rest on that side of the ball hadn't played in awhile anyway.

I digress. If the defense plays the way they did against the Giants in the playoffs and the offense displays similar play, I don't think ANYONE wants to see the Ravens, that includes the two teams who destroyed us this year (Texans and Broncos respectively). In fact, I don't see both the #1 and #2 seeds being around come AFC Championship time. One or both will be gone.

I don't know what Harbaugh will do,but I'd love to see Taylor get at least a little bit of playing time, even if it's while Flacco is playing. You have to have a backup QB get some experience some time. If Flacco ever goes down, he'd have some actual game experience. I don't care how or when he gets it, but it's invaluable. And coming in at the end of a game for a couple of kneeldowns is not experience. Like to see Allen and a few others get to play, too. But, we'll see.....

Should Resting: Pitta, Nagata, Reed, Pollard, Rice, Yanda, Suggs and Ellerbe.
Half game Rest: Joe Flacco, Vonta Leach, Arther Jones, Paul Kruger, Mcphee.
Full Game: Put Players, who did not get chance to show up in regular season. May be some of step up or shine as OMAR in last game.

@NaveSenrag.....if we rest all the players w/even a scratch, we'll not have anyone to play....just kidding, of course. I agree w/you.
