What should the Colts do if they have everything locked up yet are still undefeated?

I'm torn on this issue.

I just want to get this out there. Winning the Superbowl is the only thing that matters. Period. That's all this team cares about and they've all been saying that since Training Camp and I for one agree with them. Yet, if the Colts are 13-0 and have home-field advantage locked up, what do you guys think the Colts should do: rest their starters for the last three games (a plan when implemented has resulted in a one and done showing in the playoffs in 2005, 2007, and 2008 with the lone exception being 2004 where the Colts won in the Wildcard Round.) or go for 16-0 and have everyone battle-tested for the Post-Season. (Also assuming you go 16-0, you would then be playing for a perfect season.) The two times the Colts have played the starters for all 16 games (since our first Division Title in 2003), in 2003 and 2006, our record in the Playoffs is 6-1 with a Superbowl Title and an appearance in the AFC Championship Game. This decade when we haven't played the starters in all 16 games our playoff record is 1-6 with 5 one and dones. I know I sound like the media and in no way does that fact take away form the Colts' success. Yet it is a telling trend. However, we could end up resting our starters like the Broncos did in '98 and go onto win it all. Plz post your thoughts and remember that this is all hypothetical.
