I'm of the belief that the building momentum the Chiefs are creating is not helped by such an early bye week. Especially for a winning and relatively healthy team.

Thoughts?

Imo it should be a benefit to have an extra week to gameplan against Peyton Manning.

I think it is a neg for the players, but a pos for the coaches.

Net result = neutral.

I would think it was a negative under most circumstances. One could argue that it does give an extra week to prepare against a tough opponent on the road....but I tend to think it is a momentum killer.

Hopefully we make use of the extra week...

Exactly. When your bye comes the week before the toughest matchup of the year, you've got to be happy.

I think the game planning aspect is more important than any killed momentum... OTOH, I guess a slow start could be partly blamed on the bye, and that would be very bad.

I think it's good. We re 3-0 after some ugly games and I don't think anyone saw us here. Now we have a chance to absorb it, look at what we are doing and get re-focused. TJ gets time to heal and so does Arenas.

I think with all the rookies we are playing it is good because it gives them a chance to do a "week in review" to get ready for the stretch.

It doesn't really matter. You just play the way it is scheduled. Non issue if you ask me.

Can't do anything about it, so there's no sense in wasting time complaining about it.

Time to coach 'em up to get ready to upset them Colts!

Shock the world!

Momentum killer!? We're 3-0 heading into the bye week. If we were 0-3 heading into the bye week, it'd be a frustrating two weeks. Fortunately, that isn't the case.

This is by far a useful pause, especially as a couple mentioned, it gives them time to prepare for week five against one of the best NFL teams we've seen the past few years.

I think it's a good break for the growth of the younger players, but I would imagine the older vets on the roster wouldn't mind if it was a few weeks down the line. I don't think it makes any difference as far as momentum goes, because the next game is on the road in one of the league's toughest venues, and not Arrowhead.
