The CBA mandates a 21 week season though, right? So that would be the obstacle from not having a 16 week regular season... unless they added a preseason game. That's how I remember it from the last CBA anyway.

It's important and allows everyone a chance to get healthy.

This.

Let me get this straight. Is this thread “tongue in cheek” or is everyone really upset about a bye. Because if we are seriously complaining about having a bye because weekends are boring, then that is pathetic. Seriously. Some of the posts in this thread read that way.

I wish the Steelers played every weekend. Sure. But, the bye allows the players a break, a chance to heal, a chance to get away and recharge. I think it’s a great benefit.

It’s got way more value than not having the fanbase bored for a weekend.

Not tongue in cheek at all at least from my perspective. If there were no bye weeks, the lack of a bye week would be applied evenly across the board. None of the opposing teams players would have an opportunity to heal up, recharge… For what that's worth. For years there was no bye week. And let's be clear by week exists only for another week of TV revenue for the NFL, not as a benefit to the players . Bye week belongs in the same pocket as the Thursday night games… It exists as a money maker

The NFL exists as a moneymaker.

Team no one is talking about, Buffalo.

Shit ton of high draft picks & are on the rise. Traded for B2B state all star Benjamin without giving up much.

Another team no one is talking about is the Rams. They've quietly gone 6-2. I could see them finishing with an 11-5 record.
