We NEED a bye. Im sorry, this season WILL NOT end with a Lombardi if we have to play through 4 postseason games. As good as this team is, we are simply not healthy/young enough to last that long. This is not 2006 when we had a healthy Oline and all of our key players were MUCH younger...

You may get more games sooner that way, but you will not get more games overall and I can promise you that.

I get your point about being healthy. I'm just saying all things being equal, I'd like an extra game. I'm in favor of an 18 game season.

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

What Killer said. The extra weeks rest will do this team good.

Roger Goodell also wants 18 games - be careful of guilt by association

You will get more games with an 18 game season but less quality - IMO playing 16 games + 4 potential playoff games for a wild card team already puts players over the edge in terms of breaking down

A longer season means less seasons in most players' careers and more games with backups on the field as starters

I prefer quality over quantity but to each his own

A bye would be extremely beneficial. We've got a seriously banged up team.

If we don't get it, then I still see us kicking ass though.

we need troy back healthy, the bye will make that possible. without him we're done.

sure we most likely can beat the likes of carolina and cleveland without him, but the playoff teams are a much different story.

Our team is arguably the oldest in the league and a bye is crucial for us to continue.
