If the Colts have decided whether or not their starters will play the whole game on Sunday, they're not letting on.
"Right now, I could not tell you exactly what it’s going to be, whether or not a guy plays one series or the entire game, I couldn’t tell you that honestly right now," Caldwell said when asked specifically about the plan for healthy starters.
The Colts are 14-0 and have clinched home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. They could join the 2007 Patriots as the only teams to go 16-0.
The paper reports, "Caldwell emphasized the preparation would be the same and that the health of players would be the primary factor for who played."
I want their starters to play. If you win, you want it to be against the other team's best. Even if it is too late to save this season, this win would be a great way to build momentum for the offseason.
Beating a bunch of backups wouldn't really do much for this team.
