Default If Peyton Manning comes back into this game up 31 with eight minutes to go...

Caldwell should be fired. Really. Why Eli, Freeney, or anyone of importance has been playing for the last several minutes is beyond me.

Can you imagine if someone stepped on his Achilles right now? This is criminal.

...and Mathis sacks Eli with three minutes to go. I'm sorry, but all of this is beyond nonsensical.

I thought the Texans punting on 4th and 4 from the Washington 35 in OT was pretty incredible. I would have fired their coach on the spot if I owned the team.

For once, Jon is right on the money! :)

We see it all the time. I don't think it crosses coaches minds that much, but it should.

I don't really understand this argument really. These guys play tons of snaps over the course of a season, not to mention they can get injured in practice as well. Sure, it's increasing the likelihood of being injured overall, but it's a miniscule amount and maybe the extra work on in-game situations is worth more than the negative value of potentially being injured? I really don't know the answer to that, and I have no idea what the play-calling was like last night, but at least for Eli I'd have to think it's more beneficial for him to be in the game still getting "game practice" in.

I absolutely hate it when announcers say stuff like this towards the end of games, particularly for the teams that are losing. I guess there is a value of getting your backups some practice in, and if you want to make that argument fine it may actually be correct, but don't tell me running 5 more plays under center when they're going to run hundreds over the course of the season (not to mention pre-season and practice) has any significant effect on the chances of injury. A player can get hurt on any play and if you're constantly worried about that shit you'll never get anywhere it's just a part of the game.

Yeah I don't mind them staying in the game early in the season either. In other sports (soccer in particular), you want them to increase their stamina early in the year, but more importantly across all sports, you want your best players to get in form so to speak. As someone who bet the under, I wish they pulled the plug, but I can see a reason for leaving them in in Week 2.
