Excerpt from a note on the Colts title chances....

what happens if they're 34-0 and have home-field clinched heading into that Week 15 game against the Chargers? Isn't Tony Dungy screwed either way? If he keeps playing his starters and one of them gets hurt, he's an idiot. If he rests guys and they're rusty in their Round 2 game, he's an idiot. (Personally, I think Ozzie Guillen showed how to handle this situation -- just keep kicking butt and don't worry about anything else.)

It's a funny line, but he's actually wrong. Ozzie didn't keep "playing his starters" after the Sox locked up the division. He actually rested guys for the playoffs (and took a lot of heat from NY and Boston writers). The Sox just continued to kick ass anyway, quieting the critics.
