Sean Peyton has announced that he will be resting starters today against  Carolina Panthers.

Should New Orleans be resting? Or should New Orleans be going for Carolinas' neck in today's game?

Normally a team would want to rest their starters if given the chance befor the playoffs. In 2006 New Orleans did so and made it to the NFC Championship game.

With today's decision to go ahead and rest certain starters for the Saints, could this spell doom this year as they have lost there last two games.

Should New Orleans be pushing for win 14 and get some momentum going into the playoffs this year. No team has lost there last three games and have made it to the Superbowl.

New Orleans has nothing at steak in this game being that the vikings went ahead and decided that they would let Jay Cutler and the Bears destroy them in the first half of last weeks game and couldn't come back even tho scoring 30 points in the second half of that game. Saints fans can be happy about that.

Mark Brunell is starting his first game since November 12, 2006. He has always thrown the ball well for all of his career but being that he is older things might be different.

New Orleans will see in weeks to come if this was a bad decision or not.
