Default Will the starters play?

I've never been to a Steelers game before but I got tickets to the brownies game at the end of the year. Assuming that the Steelers would win this Sunday and clinch the division and the 2nd seed do you think the Steelers would play any of the starters for a drive or so at that game??? this is all based on assumption that the Steelers win this Sunday. I mean I would like to see Roethlisberger and Woodley.

I would imagine that if we win the next two . . . Most of the starters would play the 1st half only

hard to say. last year most played, ben was one of the few who didn't since I think he had a minor injury

with this only being tomlin's 2nd year its hard to predict what he does at times

You may see lots of gary russell though

Once they clinched last year, they coasted a bit. That wasn't the wrong thing to do, I don't think, but Tomlin showed me that he places in a lot of importance in resting his A guys as much as possible at this point in the year.

Got a lot of work left, though. I don't like thinking about life after the 15th, yet.

I never liked the idea of benching the starters. I would rather let them keep doing what they have been, we are potentially getting a 1st round bye. I don't want the guys to go into the playoffs without playing for a while and be rusty.

Just the way I look at it.

No, the starters won't play... so you need to sell your tickets to me... I'll buy them for $40 each (just kidding!)

I would imagine they will play, but if we have it clinched, it will only be for the 1st half as someone mentioned. The other year (2004-2005 season)... we had everything clinched & went & played Buffalo & pretty much had our "scrubs" (as Myron called them) in and we still pummelled them.. lol... I drove up for that game, it was a sea of terrible towels @ Ralph Wilson stadium....ahhhh... good times.. good times...

the way the offense is playing, the starters should play the entire game bc they are just not ready yet (offensively that is)

If we get the 1st round bye, I can see our starters playing because you dont want them to get rusty at all going about 3 weeks without playing a game

they will start the game, and then the browns will be fed to the hungry second stringers trying to make names for themselves.
