    How many games this year do we play a team off the bye

    We just played Cin off there bye
    We play Balt off there bye
    We then play Tenn off there bye

    There is some sort of competitive advantage playing a team when you come off the bye


    Next year we need to address this and 1:00 home games in Sept and Oct. These little things might add up to a win or 2

    Yeah, but it was our own owner who complained about the 1:00pm games, leading the schedule makers to reduce the number of them that we got...

    Some were blaming the Jets looking like **** yesterday b/c of their bye. It might not always be an advantage, especially when it happens to the All-Time New York Jets.

    Cincinatti played the Falcons last week, but I almost made the exact same thread last night.

    i agree with the original post, I believe teams coming off a bye have an advantage and the league needs to address the scheduling. We play 3 games in row against rested squads coming off a bye week, I don't believe that is fair. Every team in the league should play the same number of games against teams coming off their bye, can't be that hard to even it up.

    the better teams going to win. (unless Gene Steratore is involved) Doesn't really matter when or where the game is played.

    Well when you use your bye to take a seven or eight day vacation instead of doing any kind of extra prep it's only natural your potential advantage will disappear. Great job Rex.
