Should the Falcons sit all the starters for the last game? 

Post#1 » by atlantabbq99 » Sun Dec 25, 2016 7:10 am

Birds have already clinched a playoff birth with the win over Carolina. It would be catastrophic if some freak injury happen to Ryan, Julio, Beas, Deion Jones, any of the offensive line, or any cornerback, on the last game of the season against the Saints.

Should the Falcons sit all the starters for the last game?

I hope Ryan and the other starters don't take one snap, but I think coach will let them play one quarter and then pull them for the rest of the game.

I believe they must play.
Seeking a first round bye which would be huge for us.

Absolutely not, it's the Saints. Even if we were 14-1 and clinched the top seed, every game against the Saints is a must win.

Also winning it clinches us a bye week and the 2-seed, which is even more incentive to give it our all. Losing means we have to play on Wildcard weekend (against possibly the Giants or maybe Packers) and then possibly travel to Seattle for the divisional round. I'd rather just take the week off and have Seattle come to the dome.

I'm more in favor of sitting the starters now, after watching this.....

This would be devastating if something like this happen to the Falcons before the playoffs started.
