No More Extra Days Off

I'm sure that days off are well deserved, but this team hasn't proven that it can maintain focus outside of Airline Highway. This is the second pitiful performance after extra days off.

If they win three in a row, give'm an extra day. Otherwise don't let them out of the coaching staff's sight.

RE: No More Extra Days Off

If I work hard, I mean really hard , my boss tells me the coffee is on him the next morning but refuses to give me a day off, so today for some reason I felt sick so I had to take a day off, I hate being sick but nice to play on the computer for 8 hours straight...
I think giving the players off a day is fine, I think being off on Monday's is good for players, rest up, being with their families, etc.

RE: No More Extra Days Off

It's the extra days off that is causing the lack of focus and complacency. These guys only work 7 months out of the year, at most, so let them have as much free time in the offseason as they can handle. This is winning time and they don't seem to be getting it done taking play breaks in midseason.

RE: No More Extra Days Off

Well if its 7 months to a player then he won't be in the NFL very long... Its a year round job, these players at the very least work out year round especially the ones who actually want to win.
