The Jets game is now basically meaningless - unless the Giants lose to the Redskins. Even if Dallas beats Tampa AND Philly and we drop the game against the Jets, we still control our destiny by beating the Cowboys the last week of the season. Last night's game was HUGE, next week's game is HUGE, but the Jets game isn't huge.
So: if it comes down to the Jets game being completely meaningless to our playoff run - do we rest up Boley, Bradshaw, Osi, and all the other dudes who are really toughing it out right now? I know that's not TC or the Giants way, but this year has been more brutal than usual - and after we beat the Skins on Sunday, it doesn't matter one iota what happens to us in the Jets game.
On the other hand, the Skins actually looked very sharp against the Pats (game was on TV in my part of the USA) yesterday and should have won - they definitely did enough to win (that Pats defense is awful, by the way - no way they go far in AFC playoffs).
