I'm just thinking of how much it must be unfun, week 17, after 13 weeks of football without a break.
While teams that get bye-week 8 or 9, don't have such worries.
So, start bye weeks at week 7. go to 10. 8 teams per week. week 7 only has 10 games in a row, week 10 only has 9 games in a row, 8 and 9 both have... 8 in a row. Much fairer.
I'd like to see every team have a bye week during week 9, but throw a coin in a wishing well, because it isn't going to happen.
