Never. Absolutely never. You play to win every game you compete in. If we are 5-10 then you fight your ass off to be 6-10. This is not a development league. The coaches know exactly what they have in every guy on the roster. Playing kids before they are ready does not develop talent. What it does do is enable young players to develop bad habits and confidence issues very early in their careers. If you what to see this type of thing watch the Browns. This play the young guys as soon as the season is in doubt strategy has done wonders for them over the years.
