Good idea... except for the fact that there are teams that have Thursday night games reeeally early... and teams that have Thursday night games reeeally late.

As far as 7 to 9 week byes: that would only leave 16 teams, and 8 games... with Sunday night, Monday, & Thursday taking 3 games.. leaving 2 games in the morning & 3 in the afternoon. Eh...

I would propose that EVERY team in a division goes on bye in the same week. It makes it equitable for all four teams. Eight divisions... which woudl mean starting in week 6... and going through week 13... which is essentially what we currently have (except that it is a mismash of teams from different divisions).
