How does Dallas get a Week 10 bye?

Recommended Posts

I don't get it. They go 13-3 and get a coveted bye week in the second half of the season.

Week 10 is pretty late in the season. Bet they're not too thrilled with having to wait that long

Giants got week 4, which is completely stupid and absurd for any team. The perfect spot is week 7 or 8, right in the middle, because normally by that time, they're ready for a break.

Sometimes those early byes work out in your favor, though.

Exhibit A: 2003 Eagles.

For a playoff bound team, the later the bye the better. Gives the team the chance to rest those sore bodies. That's why Dallas always had an advantage all these years with the long layoff following the Thanksgiving Day game.

yeah but having to play 3 games in a 11 day period can also be seen as a disadvantage

Must be a slow day....we're whining about other teams' bye weeks and saying they've had an advantage since the inception of Thanksgiving Day games?

If you're good...you're good.

If you suck...you suck.

Bye weeks and Thursday games won't make or break a season.

How do the Patriots go 16-0 and get caught cheating and have the easiest schedule in the NFL?? That is the real question!

Thanksgiving Day game advantages have really helped out those Detroit Lions, huh? :lol:

Whenever you play the Bills, Jets and Dolphins twice a year, you're going to have one of the easiest schedules.

Agreed, the best week to have it 6 or 7. When you have it in week 10 that means your playing a whole month against teams that have prolly already played their bye and are fresher than you.

Dallas will most likely be out of playoff contention by then anyway.

who cares.

lol! did you just cut and paste that from your prediction last year?

you might as well throw out a "TO will blow up on Romo by week 8" too

how did your predictions turn out last year?
