Normally I am against the early season bye week, but with the Colts sitting at 1-2, this might be a good thing! It will give the offense a chance to gel for almost two full weeks before taking the field again. Also, the players that are injured have some extra rest this week, which will help in their recoveries. Jeff Saturday originally was supposed to be out for the first six weeks of the season and he came back in week three against the Jaguars. This bothered me at first and I didn't understand why he just didn't wait until after the bye week to come back. Well, he finished the game avoiding further injury and this week he will appreciate the extra time to heal. I'm sure the coaching staff will be watching the Houston Texans this weekend and start their game plan immediately for their week five showdown.
So, what will you be doing during the bye week? I'll be celebrating Kelper's birthday and engagement (to a woman!) this Saturday. Then on Sunday, I might just spoil myself to some extra sleep. I really don't know, the possibilities are endless! Of course, there is the obligatory marathon football watching that will take place as well. Is there any better feeling than watching the first game on Sunday and then falling asleep at the beginning of the second game and waking up in the second half to catch the rest of the action? I say that there is not!
Also, I should probably start brainstorming what I will be for Halloween. We have to dress up at work and I'm really not sure what I can do that is fun AND work appropriate. Any suggestions?
Well, have a good weekend of football watching or whatever you do that doesn't involve football watching. I'll be back in the morning for my NFL picks for the week. I'm going to take the prize Rickhouse!
