Sorry, but it's indefensible. Are you telling me Peyton Manning needs to work on his hand offs? They treat these guys like China Dolls in the preseason. One series, two series and then to the sidelines in some of those games. They give Peyton much of the game off once they wrap up the division. It makes no sense.

Peyton handing off maybe doesn't make sense. Eli could use the work imo.

But also, how often does a QB get injured while handing the ball off?

How about tripping over your own feet and having massive OL and DL fall on you. There you go...broken foot. Sure, it doesn't happen very often, but why risk it when there's no reward? What else are you paying Jim Sorgi for? (Yes I know IND has a new backup, I don't know who he is though).

Again how often does this happen on a running play?

Actually, I would guess this happens more on running plays than passing plays. QBs' feet tend to get tangled after a bad snap or during bad exchanges on the handoff.

the question isn't how often it happens. the question is what is the reward versus the risk? there is no reward, thus the risk must be higher than the reward.

I disagree about there being no reward in week 2 of the season. I would agree with you if it were week 15 or something. There are all sorts of reasons the coaching staff might think it's appropriate to leave the starters in at this point in the season. Getting in a better rhythm in terms of timing the snap and movement off the snap is just one example.

I don't even know what to say. You guys know what's sharp when it comes to betting but I can't believe it's sharp to have Eli Manning (with no reliable backup), still playing, losing by 31, with three minutes to go, getting his chest planted to the ground by Robert Mathis, all in the name of "getting in a better rhythm." Not to mention that it's also idiotic to have Mathis in the game (from a Colt's perspective).

If they rest starters in the preseason when the games are meaningless, why don't they rest them in the regular season when the rest of whatever blowout they are in is meaningless?
