  • should CP play next week?

    If Clinton Portis is well enough, should he play against Green Bay?

    Last week alot of people wanted to Shanny's head for not kicking the field goal sooner and letting CP get injured. Is it possible that this was a blessing in disguise? CP gets some much deserved rest going into the playoffs, and now we know what Q is capable of.

    Where are the Shanny haters this week?

    Once again, gotta give it up for the O-line. Spectacular!

    Bring on the POSTSEASON!!!

    I don't think Portis among most of the other starters should play much if at all. We really need to keep players healthy now that we know we have a spot in the playoffs.

      You get hurt when you are not in rhythme!

      It's not time to mess with the chemistry. Play it and get better! Substitutions through out to make it more like a practice workout and hopefully we are still blowing them out.

      CP's yardage is also important! He needs his rhythme to return after a week off.

      I do not know what the NFC playoff senerios are but GB W or L may affect it. We need to respect the other teams!!!

        I say rest him and some of the other starters. This would be a great time for us to rest Dan Neil and let his ankle get better as well as Portis. Plus, we could get some of our young guys some playing time to sharpen up for the "big dance".

          He's going to get a rest...sorry...but let's make him fresh for the playoffs because for the last 3 weeks (before the Colts game) he has been running mad!

            I'd have to agree about resting Portis. If he weren't hurt currently, I'd have to say play him, but giving him an extra week to heal up seems like a sound idea.

            And....its not like we don't have a running game without him!

            As far as the other starters, I'd say play the game like theres no tomorrow. Losing begets losing and vice versa...we don't want to even let up when it doesn't "mean anything".

            We need to bring "The Big Mo" with us, into the postseason. Having Big Mo with ya as your 12th man, is what can push you over the hump when you're on the road (in my ever-so-humble opinion).

              dumb question, but what is "The Big Mo"? Pardon the newbness.

              P.S. Rest CP and Neil, and let Mike grind that GB defense. Throw in the QG for some added flava and we got this. Praying Jake stays healthy, tho.

                The Big Mo = momentum. As for the "newbness, no worries!

                  Shannahan is the man. I honestly believed he would have something up his sleeves. At least I would have. Can you imagine if they had lost tonight? Shannahan would have joined Fassle and Reeves. I say mix Portis in, especially on the run defense the Packers have. Resting him might be a bad things come playoffs. He's hot right now and they should keep him that way.

                    If we were lucky enough to get him some good yards and touches early and get a lead going, we could always pull him later and use either MA or QG as closers. Maybe keep him sharp, but do it conservatively.

                        Thanks for the heads up, Trench. Momentum is huge.

                          I think it depends on the other games. If we have a chance of being the fifth seed (and playing cincy?), then play him. If the game becomes irrelevant, then give him about 10 carries (practice) and rest him.

                            Other teams have to be freakin if they face a healthy CP. Nice to have that weapon at 100% come the first round.

                            Just a thought, but how well could we have done if we could have eliminated some of those penalties...

                              Cincy above all others.

                              But a tougher game may keep us honest?
