Link: Postseason likely would be Gates' next game

Antonio Gates at 70% is still better than most players, but the more Gates continues to play on his bad wheel, the more injured it gets. Vincent Jackson’s return to the lineup makes the idea of sitting Gates easier. Jackson is a pro-bowl level talent that can carry the passing game while Gates is sitting out.

If the Chargers were to make it into the post-season, they would need Gates as healthy as possible to play against the elite teams in the league. The Chargers only have 2 games left before a possible post-season berth and the Bolts still need a lot of help to make it into the playoff, but resting Gates now could prove to be valuable for their future.

    Resting Gates IS a great idea! Everyone knows we can’t lose and that may not be enough. The Titans have a decent chance to deliver our best Christmas Present. Antonio needs to get healthy! The organization MUST sign Vincent Jackson to a long term deal – get real or resign ‘front office’. We can make this work and ‘make the play-offs’. Rest Antonio and lets go to and win the Super Bowl! We deserve all of this! HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!!
