It's his team, as the coach, his choice as ubelievable as it is, regardless of what it means to Steelers.
I agree it's his decision. I just don't agree with it. I see why he did it. If he leaves important players in and one gets hurt, the same people ripping him for bailing would be ripping him for not bailing. However, this isn't 14-2 we're talking about. It's perfection - and momentum. Now as much as they say they are turning the page, in the back of players' minds is the fact they could have been undefeated.
They play part of next week, then have bye, and now it's a month since they played a whole game.
I think if players are dinged up, rest them - otherwise let them play.
