I think it is dumb if you have a bye to not start your starters but if we are up by say 24 I would start taking guys out near the end of the 3rd quarter.
You want guys to prepare and play consistently throughout the entire season and especially going into the playoffs but if I didn't have a bye and had a dinged up or older team I would consider starting the game with backups.
