why do the players have off anyway? rest the ones w/injury and stick them in film study. these players make millions of dollars and they are off several months out of the year. why do they need a week off? we got our butts kick and face a stretch of games we need all the work we can get. This also would have helped us figure out what we're going to do w/the OL and get Crabtree up to speed faster.
We were out played because ATL has faster players, came out hungry, and were prepared after their bye week.
Singletary's experience as a HOF play realizes the importance of a bye week: the only time in a 5 month stretch the players can see extended family and children. The team usually has extra practices early next week to make up for the time they had off.
Saying Singletary is crazy for given them a break is ignorant, he more than most coaches know the importance of 4 days off.
