Sing should have cancelled the entire bye week

The bye week is for players to heal up and clear their heads. The coaching staff is still hard at work and they are the ones who failed against the Falcons.

Yeah, there sure are a lot of "experts" on the Internet that think they know how to run a NFL team, right down to the practice schedule.

But unlike Madden video games, real people do need to take advantage of a break in the schedule in a very intense job. Real people have lives & make plans for the work break that is already planned out months in advance. Real people also know that you don't always get better at something by grinding at it until you are burnt out.

And overall this is thread is drama about nothing. Time has not been wasted with the coaching staff having a lot of decisions & planning during the bye week. The players basically got a few days off, and are right back at it again. No big deal.
I think if the league thought they could do it, we'd have an 18 game regular season schedule, two bye weeks, and playoff match ups that put 16 teams into the playoffs.

That way they would have a season that is 24 weeks long. They'd take a 2 months alf off, and then the combine stretched to 2 weeks. Take another month and a half and the draft (make it a whole week) could be done. Take another month and a half and start the camps/pre-season and you can almost go year around.

Just think of the revenue potential with all the "talking head experts" that could be on NFL network during the "between times" and man would they have it made.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Save the drama for Sopoaga.
But Jimmy Raye was in North Carolina during the bye week.
The purpose for the bye week is to give teams a breather. Losing big to Atlanta wasn't the preferred method to go into it, but it gave our guys a chance to lick their wounds, heal up and get ready for the rest of the season. There's no sense in pushing your players in the bye...it's a looong season.

Seems like he has been there all season with the way his offense is running.
