    Is anyone concerned about the early bye? Looks like 7 of the last 10 SB winners had bye weeks after 1/2 way thru the season


    Giants. 2011 Bye week 7
    Ravens. 2012 Bye week 8
    Seahawks 2013 Bye week 12
    Patriots 2014 Bye week 10
    Broncos 2015 Bye week 7

    It seems like it's more likely to get a second wind the later the bye week is...but as far as I'm concerned health is the biggest factor regardless of anything else. I listed the season, SB winner and bye week for the team below. Tried a copy and paste from excel on my tablet. Didnt work out too well. For whats its worth more teams have won the SB overall that had bye weeks prior to halfway point and the Steelers won both their SBs with a bye week prior to the halfway point. Even when they lost to the Packers their bye week was week 5.

    Of the 5 you listed, three had bye weeks before the halfway mark, which would be week 9 in a 16 game schedule.

    I think its situational and depends on a teams need at the time. Looks like we needed it now to heal up and keep up with a POS division rival next on the schedule. Then again, not sure what good a bye does this team when they start back up. We'll find out soon enough for this year.

    Your really researching for nails to hang your hat on, when your looking for past Super Bowl winners and when their bye weeks occurred.
