Default Please No Bye

A bye means one less game for the Steelers. If the Steelers don't get a bye, that means they'll play 4 games instead of 3. That is assuming the Steelers go to the Superbowl. Yeah, its a harder road, but so what. I'd like to watch them play.

I still want them to win out for the season. Am I wrong?

Our 2 best players on defense can come back healthy to play with an extra weeks rest.

I'll take Aaron Smith and Troy's coming back healthy over your selfish wants.

You're out of your mind dude. Go try saying that to an actual player and they'll slap you upside your head. We need that BYE more than ANY of the AFC teams in playoff contention right now.

Teams that have the bye win there divisional playoff game like 74% of the time. Partly because they're probably the better team and partly because they're well rested, well prepared, and healthy.

I'll take the bye.
Plus having the bye means your divisional game will be at home and you have a fair chance at the AFC championship game at home. Not having the bye means we're on the road the whole playoffs.

You also must like to watch them lose

The best player on the team is nursing a leg injury, the team is one of the oldest in the league, and only 2 teams (2005 Steelers/2007 Giants) have won the SB as a wild card

If this team does not get a bye IMO they go out the first weeknd of the playoffs. They really need time off.

You're completely wrong and since you like to watch them play, get TIVO and watch one of their games a second time.

This team is being held together with duct tape and paper clips, and
you want to see them have to play an additional game without a bye week?
Beyond retarded.
