For me, i agree with you, i'd much ratrher he be fit and healthy for next week and beyond.
But i am not one to second guess Zimmer. The man is the best head coach i've seen in the 20 years of following this bunch of heartbreakers.
I understand where you're coming from. I was just giving you a hard time because "it would of been in the interests of the team if he'd of been pulled" is basically the opposite of what Zimmer actually decided to do.
However, I get it. You trust his judgment.

No offense intended but that seems like a stretch to me. One or two extra series against the Eagles weren't likely to make a difference in the big picture... unless, of course, they had resulted in an injury. Bradford can more safely get the reps in practice and/or in post-practice work with his receivers.
I think Zimmer stubbornly made a bad call. It's a "tough guy" choice that's in his DNA and the football neanderthal in me loves that mentality but they obviously gave up a 1st round pick (and more) for Bradford because they felt they needed someone better than Hill to get them where they wanted to go this season. Consequently, it makes little sense to risk his health needlessly late in an inevitable loss.
