View Full Version : I have never been a fan of the bye in playoffs...

I have always believed going into the playoffs hot and on fire is much better then resting and having a bye week and losing maybe a hot streak your team could be on...we'll see if it makes a difference this weekend.

Also key thing to realize for next week

1) packers online is VERY banged up
2) Aaron Rodgers on Sunday will be 3 full weeks since the last time he played...possibly some rust

Indeed, look what it did for this team in 2008.

Yep. And Tennessee the same year. And the Patriots last year.

historically it has been a massive advantage. the home team in divisional weekend has a much higher winning percentage then at any other stage through out the playoffs i believe. however the last few years that hasn't been the case. lets hope it continues
