Could this hurt Wentz & the high-flying Eagles?

I'd have to say no. I think it gives Wentz and Doug P. even more time to get their game plan together. One of the things the Eagles have shown so far is that they have been completely prepared for each individual opponent.

Remember before 02 when the Texans came into the league and there were odd numbered teams, 1 team was unlucky enough to have their bye in week 1 or week 17?? Talk about an early bye week! I think the best time to have a bye week would be week 8 or week, but I'd rather have a late bye week (week 10 on) than an early bye week (week 4 to week 6).

I don't know why they just don't have a week off for everyone the same week. For instance, mid season. After week 8, everybody gets the next week off and then resume back in week 10.

It would makes sense but the NFL would lose LOTS of TV revenue.

Since 2002, the bye weeks have been the same weeks. Your title makes it seem as if the NFL changed the bye weeks to start earlier. That's not the case, they have spanned weeks 4-12 since 2002. It's just that the Eagles got week 4 this year that the article is making a case about it.

Interesting idea, skinsguy, I like it, league probably wouldn't though??? Packers have the early bye with the Eagles and Packers weren't thrilled when the schedule came out. Of course, all teams want a bye in the middle of the schedule so a Sunday off for everyone not a bad idea!

Packers have injuries on defense, so early bye became better. Hopefully some players will be back before they face the Giants.

Yep. Seems to me that Wentz will be even more prepared - if that's possible? He's still a "rookie", after all - whatever THAT's supposed to mean.

You're right, Skeet. It's mostly about the Wentzylvania Eagles and their current run. However... C-D encourages us to be creative with our thread titles.

Sounds like it could sometimes be good news when it's a team's turn for the early bye week?

The NFL could do some sort of all-star week that bye week. Maybe have some sort of competition like they used to have with the quarterbacks when they did the accuracy drills. They could do that, maybe some speed drills and competition with some of the top players in the league. I don't think the NFL would lose a lot of money. They're big enough that it wouldn't hurt them that much. Then all the teams are equally refreshed.

This is a bad idea What happens if your top player injures himself. Then people would complain to change it back with the bye week the way it is now. Losing a player during a game that means something is one thing, losing one during a drill-that doesnt mean squat, is another.
