Do you let your injured players rest up and heal, or do you try and win a very difficult cross country road game?
Id rest up all my injured players and have them ready for the 2 weaker opponnents we face in weeks 16 and 17.
No need to force Ben,Pouncey,Woodley etc. back when they can hopefully come back healthier.
Dont want to lose these guys for the playoff run.
Also by the chatter around the media, James will be getting 1 game.
If we concede this game,we may not get a shot for the division.
What yinz think?

Since the Ravens and Texans own the tiebreakers over the Steelers, the Steelers need to win every game and hope the others lose. Until you know you can afford a loss, you hope all your starters are ready to go.

Of course, no one should be brought back until they are ready, but you don't rest players until you can afford to do so.

Everyone who is told they can play, will play.

There it is...The Texans may lose this week and that would leave only the Ravens having to lose a game for the Steelers to get the #1 seed provided they win out of course).

Concede a game? hehe No Way.

They all want to play and win. Lets not forget these athletes are competitors and would not allow themselves to be held out unecessarily when there is so much on the line.
