CINCINNATI -- When the NFL schedule was released in April, the Green Bay Packers were surprised to see that their bye came in Week 4 -- the earliest possible date. It meant a long, 13-game run without much of a break to finish the season. That bye week doesn't look so bad now. The Packers might need it in order to get some of their injured players back on the field before their next game on Oct. 6 against the Detroit Lions. The Packers lost three starters -- tight end Jermichael Finley (concussion), running back James Starks (knee) and linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring) -- in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

This BYE week stuff is like tragedies. We always find a numerical coincidence or something that correlates to something that should have indicated to us what was going to happen. Every year we hear the BYE came just at the right time. Same concept. We find reasons/excuses to make it 'fit' in.

You never want your BYE after just three games. You want your BYE after week 6 and before week 14. If your team can't stay healthy after three games, how the hell they gonna stay healthy for the next 13 for the playoffs?>

I think every year you’re always happy with the timing of the bye. If something happens, whether it’s injuries or the game you just played, you get there and you’re excited about the opportunity to recharge and step away
