That's one positive I will take out of this game. Each year is different for all teams, but after this season we will either win the SB and it won't matter, Polian will be the genius he was unquestionably thought to be by most of us previously.........
.....or the alternative, a very harsh, and humbling one *after the jump*
Fair or not, if the Colts do not atleast reach the SB there is no question that this resting the starters strategy has failed to reap enough benefits and should never be considered in the future if the Colts (somehow, but unlikely) find themselves in 13-0/14-0 territory
I mean if we lose in the Playoffs before the SB no matter what the outcome, no matter who gets injured, who muffs a play, drops a catch, blows a coverage, It will be blamed on this one game, the criticism will reach new levels. There will be no question in the future what the Colts should do
After this season we will be able to atleast breathe a little easier in the future knowing what our Team will do in these situations, because if it doesn't work this year it's time for a change in that philosophy
