How about these as well???

They\'re - translates to they are, as in they\'re terrible.
Their - as in something they possess - like their coaching staff blows.
There - describing a place, as in over there is where he made the cutback that sprung him for 80 against the Saints\' D.

Likewise you\'re and your follow the same rules as above.

Bye - is a week in which there are no games, whereas by can have a variety of meanings like until, originated from, in that general area, etc.

Where - sort of like there - a place. The Dome is where the saints play.
Were - past tense of are. The Saints were terrible last year and are just as bad this year.

It\'s = it is. It\'s a damn shame we suck again.
Its - something possessed by it.

Shall I continue?
