Default What do Players do during the bye Week?

I know they do not spend 2 weeks preparing for the next opponent. Do they go on vacation for 3-4 days to relax and heal up? Seems like I had heard that somewhere. I know the coaches really do not take a break, they may take a day or two off to catch up on their sleep but after that its right back to the film room.

I'm pretty sure coaches take some time as well. I know Zimmer went to see his kids last season. As far as the players, rest is the key. Relax is another key.

pretty sure the new CBA says they have to get at least 4 consecutive days off...

Dalton said he's spending some time here in Cinci, then he's goin home to see his family.

Never saw Brat call a play where the QB runs backwards 30 yards from the 30 yard line and then throws a 70 yard pass for TD...

Per the new CBA, they have to have 4 consecutive days off.

Hopefully the offense puts their nose in the playbook for their "4 days off." Who wouldn't want to see this team come out after the bye and start racking up points?

Get healthy and get an extra week of prep for the west coast game (they should probly go there next wednesday till the game like the 49ers stayed here in ohio instead of traveling back to sanfran then back to the east coast....


Plus it gives us time to see were Adam Jones and Keith Rivers are who to cut (A Jones Takes M Trent) but is rivers ready if so who do we cut... if not we place him on IR?

Here's what John Thornton has to say about the bye week...

http://www.allproblogger.com/2011/10...fore-bye-week/

"I was listening to the Marvin Lewis weekly radio spot on SiriusXM NFL Radio early Thursday morning and coach was asked about getting his young Bengals motivated to play the Peyton Manning-less Colts. Marvin then mentioned that “Manning doesn’t rush the passer”, meaning that his team still has to face Colts DEs Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis. He also mentioned the Colts WRs as being tough to cover. The one thing that stood out was coach talking about how his team has a lot to play for with the bye week coming up. The host then jokingly asked if the Bengals players will get more time off if they win, Marvin gave his signature giggle.

That got me to thinking about how these type of games can affect a team. Players start thinking about the bye week long before that week actually comes. With the old CBA, coaches could keep the team in town during the bye week by staggering the off days, give them the weekend off, or he could give them the entire week off. Starting this year, players have to get 4-5 days off. Some head coaches will let their players know their days off ahead of time so that they aren’t asking the assistant coaches/secretaries/equipment managers if they’ve heard anything yet. Guys also have to book flights and plan their getaways.

Players do many things during the bye week. Most of the rookie players will go back to their colleges to attend games. Its a lot of fun going back to school when everyone knows you are in the NFL and now you have a little bit of money in your pocket. Veteran players will either take a short family trip, or a quick trip to Vegas(my trip of choice), or some guys just go hunting or something like that. Everyone just gets away for bit. Injured guys usually have to stay to get treatment.

So the game before the bye week becomes very important. Marvin has tossed out the extra days off nugget before, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. It all depends on the opponent. I remember we got the whole bye week off back in 2005 after beating the Ravens in Baltimore, and in 2006 we had to stay until Thursday after losing at home to the Patriots. You never know how it will shake out. But with the Bengals being favored at home against the win-less Colts, you just hope that they are focused on this Sunday and not the week after. It’s human nature to overlook teams, but the good, veteran led teams will find a way to get it done."
