I am, of course, an Eagles fan, and with that comes responsibilities such as believing every year that we can win the Super Bowl. This year there are more reasons than usual to think that, but sadly the Eagles are on the wrong side of some on fair scheduling.
As said on ESPN:
The Steelers have their BYE on week 4. We face them week 5.
The Lions have their BYE on week 5. We face them week 6.
The Falcons have their BYE on week 7. We face them week 8.
The Redskins have their BYE on week 10. We face them week 11.
Needless to say, this is very unfortunate, and that isn't counting the two games (1 vs the Giants and 1 vs the Cowboys) in which they are coming off extended rest due to Thursday games the week before.
It is bad enough that our strength of schedule is 7th in the league, and our division is already pretty strong.
So what do you guys think? Could this potentially be a problem? or are BYE weeks not as big of a deal as some might think?
