It's that time of year again - benchings after teams clinch?

Postby The Lung » Mon Nov 29, 2004 4:57 pm

With thier victory over the Giants yesterday, Philadelphia clinched their division. With victories over the Packers, Redskins, or Cowboys in the next few weeks, combined with some Atlanta Falcons losses, the Eagles might have home field advantage also wrapped up very shortly.

Could we then see some benchings of key players? Would Westbrook ride the pine in favor of Dorsey Levens? What about T.O.?

Might not be a bad idea to have backups ready for week 16 (the fantasy Superbowl for most) just in case.

I would think they'd wait until home field is wrapped up before they sit guys down. They are only one game better than ATL, so I wouldn't look for it to happen until maybe the last game of the year.

As for Pitt/NE, they are both neck-in-neck, so their players should be safe starts to the end unless one of them tails off.

Agreed, as long as homefield advantage is in play, there will be few benchings...

I'm thinking about putting together a big package for Mcnabb since he has such a juicy playoff schedule, but I'm worried he'll be pulled early in games during the FF playoffs.
