With all due respect sir, that was almost a month ago. That's an eternity in the ever changing world of the NFL (not to mention fantasy football). Hell, things can change on a dime in a day! The mere fact that they were unbeaten at that time might have had a bearing on the way Fisher was thinking (i.e., that he would've played all his guys to remain unbeaten if the opportunity was still there).

That was my point entirely.
Looking at the two upcoming games for both Tennessee (vs. Cleveland and at Houston) and Pittsburgh (vs. Dallas and at Baltimore), and it's not hard to see a scenario in which Tennessee wins both, while Pitt could lose one, or both games. If that happens, you better believe CJ gets rested to some extent.
Bottom line...why would Fisher take a chance on letting arguably his best offensive player get hurt if the games don't matter?
