Default Parker going to play with a brace

Well, what do we think of this? I personaly don't understand, why not rest him for these next to easier games along with ben. If we are losing then put him in! I just dont get the fact that we are riddled with injury's and dont seem to be trying to perserve what we have left. Whats next ....charlie batch on the field playing with a halo and neck brace??

I think he needs to be on the field in order to win now and secure a place for us in the Playoffs.

You can rest now and be in great shape to play Golf in January, or you can suck it up, play hard now and get us to the dance. Bottom line. Shut Up and Play through it.

There wont be anything to "suck up" if bens arm falls off. We don't need ben or willie to win the next 2 games, period. The whole suck it up testosterone bullshit is just plain DUMB stradegy.

Are his legs okay? Yes? Then play him...RBs don't need shoulders. Just velcro the ball to his hands and off he goes!

I would think willie needs his shoulder to break through defenders don't ya think ? They also already mentioned for ben not to throw the ball too high to him and i just hope the don't do what they did the last game he came back and pretty much completely take Moore out of the game.

We need these guys to start winning consistently, and while Moore has been doing a sufficient job, Parker needs to bring us back up to par.

Bring Parker in.

I'd be more worried about him fumbling than anything. One good hit on that shoulder.

the chargers are no walk in the park.. they always play us tough, their receivers always do good against us, and jamal williams will eat up our oline.. how is that an easy win? i can see resting someone for the cincy game since its a very short week and you should be able to win that game with a high school quarterback.. for the chargers game, you play the best players available.

We're talking about a team that is currently 4-5 and barely squeaked out a home win against a 1-8 Chiefs team that was playing with 1/2 a defense. If we blow this one, we don't deserve to go to the playoffs. I agree that we should let Parker have some more time off and that Ben should probably sit the next two games out.

Winning now is the strategy. Willie helps us win now.

If you can practice, you can play. No one is 100% at this point in the season. You do what you got to do and get your professional butt out on the field and get the team wins. bottom line.
