Let Them Play

There has been a little controversy on how the Colts handled the last game they had with the Jets. They took out Peyton Manning and several of there starters in the second half. The Jets ended up coming from behind and winning the game. This is a philosophy the Colts have done in prior years and it has backfired on them.

In regards to the Pats game on Sunday against the Texans I think the Pats should treat the game like any other game. They should not be sitting out starters just to protect them. Although, in the case of the injured like Vince Wilfork and Ty Warren I see the point in them not playing. Tom Brady though should play from the minute the game starts until the end.

The Pats should try to build on any momentum they have from the last 3 wins. Unless Tom Brady's arm is literally falling off he should play the entire game. There are only 16 games in the season and you need to take advantage of building any momentum you can. The defense especially needs to continue to improve. As the Bad New Bears said in there Breaking Training movie, "let them play".

I understand that the Patriots do not have a bye week. This team is not good enough right now to take time off. They still need to improve. As a fan of the Pats I hope we see the Pats at full strength on Sunday. I have nothing against Brian Hoyer, but I do not want to see him playing this Sunday.
