Andy Reid has a tendency of resting starters

In a comment gofins4sb asked if Andy Reid usually sat out his players in meaningless games, I thought it was a good point and decided to make a post about it so more people can see. When he was in Philly he sat his starters out for the 2001, 2004, 2006, and 2010 season (He went 3-1 in the playoff games those seasons after resting starters). When asked if he will sit out his starters this year Reid said this: 
"I haven't made up my mind on how we're going to play it, I've done it a couple different ways, so we'll see how we do that. I'll evaluate all the different situations. I have sat people before, quite a few times actually and benefited from that so we'll look at everything and make sure I have that part evaluated. The obvious benefit is that you rest your guys, you get back feeling fresher than what you were in the end of the season." 
This of course benefits the Dolphins if the Ravens and Dolphins both win and they need the Chargers to beat the Chiefs to get in.

  1. CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD?

    On the Day of Pentecost Peter quoted the prophet Joel (Acts 2:21'And it shall be that everyone who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.')

    To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge the authority and power of the Lord, and follow in obedience by meeting the terms of pardon.

    The apostle Peter did not tell those on the Day of Pentecost to say the "sinner's prayer." Saying the "sinner's prayer" is not calling on the name of the Lord.

    Peter preached the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Peter declared the Jesus was Lord and Christ. (Acts 2: 22-26) They obviously believed Peter's preaching because they asked the question(Acts 2:37 ....."Brethren what shall we do?")
    Peter did not tell them to say the "sinner's prayer." What was Peter's response to their question? (Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.)


    THE NARRATIVE OF CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD.
    1. FAITH: Believe in the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.
    2. CONFESSION: Acknowledge Jesus as the Christ and the Son of God.
    3. REPENTANCE: Make the commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God.
    4. WATER BAPTISM: Be immersed into Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.


    HOW DID THE ETHIOPIAN EUNUCH CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD? (Acts 8:25-40


    1. Philip preached Jesus to him. (Acts 8:35)
    2. He confessed Jesus as The Christ the Son of God. (Acts 8:37)
    3. He was baptized in water. Immersed by Philip. (Acts 8:38-39)
    The Ethiopian eunuch did not say the sinner's pray nor was he asked to do so by Philip.


    Romans 10:13 for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."


    Romans 10:9-10 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.


    To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge His power and authority and confess Him as Lord and Christ . (Acts 2:26,Acts 8:37, Romans 10:9-10) To call on the Name of the Lord is to repent and be baptized. (Acts 2:38)


    WE ARE TOLD TO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD TO BE SAVED.


    We are never told we are saved by "faith only." We are never told that saying the "sinner's prayer" is calling on the name of the Lord.

    1. Can the Lord play any O line position?
      We'd call upon that!

  2. Thanks Dave! The Chiefs are in a unique position as a wild card with no way to change their seed. They can basically get a bye in terms of getting healthy. I would think they would be crazy to risk players health at all. You also would not want to show anything special in terms of game plans. Despite getting over run by Buffalos D-Line. I feel like we match up well with the Jets. I think we have a very good chance to make the playoffs yet.

    1. lol im not dave but you are welcome lol. The Chiefs do no have anything to play for so this could be their first round bye. One thing that people questioned was having a team with the number 1 or 2 seed take the last week off but that means two weeks of no football games.

  3. I am sure you guys heard about Jake Long. Torn ACL and MCL. I know our line has had a rough year with all the drama and loss of players. But this is the 3rd straight year he did not finish the season and that injury this late in the year will most likely limit him for awhile into next season, maybe for the rest of his playing days. That is a lot of dead money against the cap to cut him or a lot of money to wait while he trys to get back. Good luck to the Rams to try to get him to take a pay cut. Ireland may have not been able to replace him but he made the right call not giving up a chunk of cap space to keep a injury prone player.
