Covitz: History says Reid will rest Chiefs players

History says coach Andy Reid will rest Chiefs players now that playoff position is assured
By RANDY COVITZ
The Kansas City Star

With the Chiefs locked into the fifth seed in the AFC playoffs, coach Andy Reid said he has not determined whether hell sit some of his starting players in next Sundays regular-season finale at San Diego.

History suggests Reid will rest key players such as quarterback Alex Smith and running back Jamaal Charles and keep them out of harms way before the first round of the playoffs on Jan. 4-5.

The Chiefs, 11-4, cannot improve their position in the playoffs after losing 23-7 Sunday to Indianapolis. San Diego, 8-7, has a chance at a wild card spot by beating the Chiefs, coupled with losses by Miami and Baltimore in earlier games that day.

Ill evaluate all the different situations, Reid said on Monday. I have sat people before quite a few times, actually, and benefited from that. But Ill look at everything and make sure I have that part evaluated.

Reid faced this situation four times in Philadelphia in 2001, 2004, 2006 and 2010 and each time he either limited his starters to a handful of snaps or sat them altogether. The Eagles won their first playoff game in three of those seasons.

In 2004, the Eagles, 13-1, had the NFC East and homefield advantage throughout the playoffs clinched with two games remaining. Reid pulled his starters after one series in a 20-7 loss to St. Louis in the penultimate game and sat quarterback Donovan McNabb, running back Brian Westbrook, wide receiver Terrell Owens, safety Brian Dawkins and defensive end Jevon Kearse in the season-ending 38-10 loss to Cincinnati.

Those players also had an extra week off when the Eagles had a bye in the playoffs before beating Minnesota and Atlanta en route to the Super Bowl.

The one thing I did then, and Im going to do now is take the time I have to evaluate it and make sure I do what I think is right, Reid said. Its a bit of a gut feeling you go with. Ill go off of that.

One factor in deciding whether to rest players or play them in these situations is whether the week off will affect their timing.

In 2011, Green Bay, assured of the No. 1 seed, rested quarterback Aaron Rodgers, among others, for a regular-season finale against Detroit, and Packers backup Matt Flynn threw for a franchise-record 480 yards against Detroit, capping a 15-1 season. The Packers, whose only regular-season loss that year was to the Chiefs, would be upset in playoffs by the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants.

In Reids last trip the playoffs, in 2010, he sat quarterback Michael Vick, running back LeSean McCoy and wide receiver DeSean Jackson in a season-ending 14-13 loss to Dallas. Philadelphia lost its wild-card game 21-16 to eventual Super Bowl champion Green Bay.

If you look at the history of it, its been a 50-50 shot over the last three or four years by people who have done it, said Reid. Its what you feel most comfortable with as a coach. The obvious benefit is to rest your guys and get them back to feeling a little bit fresher than what they are at the end of the season.

You take the risk of the timing part of it. Sometimes thats there, sometimes its not. Those are things you evaluate.

In the cases of outside linebacker Justin Houston, who may be ready after missing the last four games with an elbow injury, and offensive tackle Branden Albert, who has missed the last three with a knee injury, they may need to play on Sunday in order to get their timing back.

Ill look at that, too, Reid said. Ill take that into consideration as I go through the process.

Charles may be the one player who could use a week off to rest from the pounding against a physical team like the Chargers. Charles has carried 259 times 26 short of his career most and caught a career-most 70 passes this season.

Hes touched the ball on 36 percent of the Chiefs offensive plays, and that doesnt count shots he has taken while pass-protecting, carrying out fakes, and even delivering a big hit in tackling Colts linebacker Jerrell Freeman after an interception on Sunday.

If Reid decides to rest Charles, he said he is comfortable with rookie Knile Davis, despite Davis critical lost fumble against the Colts and another fumble he recovered while returning a kickoff.

We have to feel that way because until this point, thats what we have done, Reid said. If Jamaal ever went down, hes the guy who steps in and goes.

You cant touch the ball four times in a game and have two of them on the ground. He knows that. Hell be the first to tell you. Hes a smart kid, a conscientious kid, I trust hell get that taken care of.

Outside linebacker Tamba Hali could be another candidate to sit out this week. Reid said Hali had some swelling in his knee, but he should be OK down the road.

That was an indication that Halis next action will be in the playoffs.

What about teams that are 3-3 in their division? I mean, one could make the argument that the Chiefs could go 3-3 if they don't rest some starters.

None of this matters since the NFL is rigged anyway.

Charles has fumbled 4 times this year. Well, at least the ones that have been lost. He has carried/received the ball 329 times.

So you're saying once every 82 touches is chronic?

No, he is saying Charles fumbles chronic. That is how it ended up in Bowes car.

Only 1 RB in the league has more fumbles than Charles.

If Davis gets the start this week he might not end up with the most on the team, though.

I like the idea of resting key players, but even more the idea of getting key backups and other players meaningful playing time.

Knile Davis/Cyrus Gray
