What I would say is that if he does that again than I would call for an immediate dismissal of coach Marty. I know he's a football coach and not a mathmatician, but it doesn't take a beautiful mind to figure that if you stud RB wants more rest and you lose a game becuase he isn't there at the end, you must find a way to rest him in the 2nd or 3rd quarter. You must play your studs in crunch time. Big mistake by Marty much more so than a softness by LT. IMO.
Marty needs to be fired anyway. he's a good coach, but he's always been waaaaaay too conservative. the only way he's gonna get the load off LT is if he lets rivers air it out a little bit. running the ball on 3rd and long doesn't get the job done. if he would put more trust in phillip rivers, LT wouldnt have to run as much and the chargers would likely move the ball even more effectively than they already do. rivers has looked good when given the chance to throw. marty has to give him those chances and take some of the load off of LT.
