I agree with you about the timing though.
Which would you do? Try to go undeafeated for the first time since the Phins or sit your RB so he is healthy. Not that they will go undefeated, the Bengals will win this week, but if they do, it is a question one might wonder.
I'd say that if they win this week, they will sit Holmes only in games where it looks out of reach for the other team. I think LJ will start to get a lot of 4th quarter play from now on unless the game is tight.
They'll sit Priest regardless of their record. I doubt they will be undefeated by Week 15 anyway but if they are, Priest will still sit. They play to win the Super Bowl, not to have a perfect record. When you have homefield advantage, 14-2 and 16-0 are the same.

yes, you play to win the superbowl, but I doubt he sits if they are still in contention to go undefeated. Let's face it the uproar would be deafening. That said I think they lose once making it moot. and if they do, priest will get shut down. Either way I persoanlly feel that a problem is brewing for the cheifs. I think if they have this thing put away, they coudl easily tank the last two games. I think they will go full tilt until detroit, a game that I think they could lose. Then they have detroit, so they will probably beat up on them, then sit priest at half-time. Play minny, then sit week seventeen. I have a feeling he will get shut down.
