Has to be a smokescreen. Considering a loss is meaningless relative to our current position, and a win has maybe a 25% chance of helping, you have to rest your players. That week off is worth more than risking further injury in the hopes of maybe getting a bye. with help.
ANd it's not like we lit them up last time WITH Ben - at home.
I'd do just what we did last week. Take care of the ball, put 17-20 points on the board, let the D close it out.
The worst part about a matchup with the Broncos, in Denver, is the fact that we will be without Ryan Clark, ya know, so he doesn't die or what not. Got to imagine that he would be pretty effective against the option too.
Totally forgot about that issue. But hey, how many internal organs do you really need? We're talking playoffs after all.
J/K, would not expect him to go. Maybe it will be Carson Palmer 2.0 and the Raiders and it's a nonissue.
