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.
do you guys get bye week's at your job? you probably have a little vacation but you don't make millions and have off 5 months out of the year either. why can't players families come visit them? it's not like they can't afford to fly them in and put them up.
Why are you comparing pro football players jobs with the common people's jobs? If you want to compare, compare them to other NFL teams. Do other NFL teams give their players time off during the bye (regardless of a win or loss), the answer is YES.
fact is it's how they make their money so i'm comparing it to how we all make our money. so maybe their body's do need a rest what is wrong with light walk throughs and film study?
So this is your rebuke??
Anyways, a bye is not just a chance to rest the body, it's also to refresh the mind. Sometimes, it's good to get away mentally. You come back better and stronger this way.
PS: How old are you?
