The Bye Week


Recommended Posts

I think we all realize that the 2009 schedule has the potential to be absolutely brutal, but that's life in the NFL. However, I was most disappointed to see that the NFL didn't do the Falcons any favors by scheduling them for the first week of Byes! That means that the Falcons will be playing 13 consecutive weeks of football!! Also take into consideration the well-documented Monday Night Game to Sunday turnover and that stretch is even more worrisome (at least that Sunday game, vs. the Redskins, is at home).

The Falcons will have to stay healthy and hungry for a good 2009 campaign.

Anyone else worried about the early bye?

You're telling me, man...

Players get a day or two off, but us staff go 7 days a week usually, and that's 13 straight weeks of it.

Obviously it's a lot of fun, but man, we sure do get exhausted... even having fun wears you down.

Oh well... like they say... a tough season just gets you ready for the post season.
