"Since McCarthy took over in 2006, Green Bay has a 38-20 overall record (.655) after the bye. Since 2009, the Packers are 21-7 (.750) after the bye."

How many byes are there in a season?

I imagine that you will be at the Packer - Giant game next week. Do us proud, you will representing us all.

Rich, I believe that is total games played after a bye week. Shows how the team responded to the time off to rejuvenate.

Rich Beckman's picture

That makes sense. But I am not sure much if any meaning can be given such numbers. At least give the "before bye" numbers for comparison.
