Crazy to not save the Cards until week 16 given the way the rules as to a winner work.
Report Tom Petty is God October 17, 2009 9:46 PM BST
what do you mean?
Report rob999 October 18, 2009 9:47 AM BST
If you go 17-0 the way a winner is selected is on a countback from week 17 picking those whose team scored the most points in week 17 then 16 etc. So the match ups that you save for week 17, 16, 15 etc. are the most important in the whole game. Id rather save the Cards at home in week 16 to the Rams than waste them in week 11 away to the Rams.

Copied from the Eliminator site (A bit harsh on JC)


The stumbling Bears head to Minnesota for a meeting with the surging Vikings. Minnesota QB Brett Favre has dominated when protected adequately from opposing pass-rushers this season, and the Bears must get to him early in hopes of disrupting what has evolved into an elite Minnesota passing offense. The Vikings will not force Favre's hand, though, unless it means "handing" off, as the team likely will seek to gash the Bears' generous rush defense throughout, asking less of the 40-year-old quarterback than in previous outings. The Bears must do the same, although for different reasons, and put the ball in the hands of rusher Matt Forte and the emerging RB Kahlil Bell, alleviating the pressure on struggling and spastic QB Jay Cutler.
