Would you be resting players or would you go for 16-0?

I would go straight for 0-16. I know there is always a risk of injuries, but resting players is sometimes what kills us in the playoffs since everyone is rusty and it ends up a 2 week break when we have the first round bye. I would only rest players in the 2nd half of the Buffallo game in Week 17 if it is a blowout. Playing in the snow would be great anyway to build on our running game.

go for 16-0. if you rest players when they return to playing there is a higher risk of injury.

Just go for it. We need to keep he momentum going with the starters. If the last 3 games become blowouts into the 3rd and 4th quarters then yea maybe start bringing the starters off but keep them there most of the time.
