I think the only way Indy doesn't have it's full complement of starters on the field against the Seahawks is if they lose in week 15 and their streak is over.

BUT, I think the Colts are going to win out, so I wouldn't hold your breath if you're waiting for Dungy to sit his players. My impression is that they are going to play for the perfect season.

I hope Indy is still undefeated for it, Seattle will really get up for that game to end it, so it'll be a shootout, and that's a good thing for me! ;-D

There is a possibility that Seattle will rest their players if they gain home field advantage this weekend which will come if Seattle wins against Tennessee and Tampa Bay and Chicago both lose their games. At that point only the Giants could tie us and we own the tiebreaker.

Since I don't believe that will happen, I suspect both Seattle and Indy to play their full teams until the game is primarily over one way or the other.

I believe that Seattle could pull it off. Indianapolis hasn't shown me anything to make me think their defense can really hold down a high-powered offense. I expect them to have trouble with San Diego and isn't of trying to beat them with defense they'll just outscore them. The same will have to happen to Seattle.

I think it would be a real dumb move for the Colts to sit players and coast into the playoffs, that game may be a preview of the Superbowl. It would be a great time to send a message.

I think it will be collective, if one team doesnt put their starters in the other team probably wont either. Both teams would want to sit their players, but they arnt going to if the other has all their starters in.

If one team is starting everyone expect the other to too.

I think of it like back in high school football, where one team would be up 50-0 and once one side puts the reserves in, the other side would as well.

But i really expect both teams to play this as a pre prep playoff game, get ready for it as if it was a playoff game and prepare for it as if it was, both teams play crap ass teams the following week afterwards so i bet they can rest the starters somewhat then and still have their secondary win it.

From what I have heard, the Colts will be playing to win the game, meaning they will be playing all starters, unless they are blowing a team out, in which case I would assume they would take out Manning, James, Harrison, etc towards the end of the game.

Personally, I think that Seattle wants to make a statement against the Colts. They still really haven't beaten anyone legit (unless you count their "victory" over the giants), and I think they will get up for the game, and they too will play to win.

The Falcons and Cowboys aren't legit? Both were considered a top 3 team in the NFC when Seattle beat them.

what everyone is forgetting is that this is a super-bowl preview. Therefore, neither team is going to want to show the other anything. Expect all vanilla all game. THis is what give the Seahawks a chance; not that they are the better team, but that both teams will play it like a preseason game as far as play-calling goes.
