The only problem I have with this is that an athlete will lose about 30% of their fitness with a week of inactivity.
Chiefs have a bye after winning the last four out of five

Hey, you've been doing so well at work the past couple weeks, why don't you take a week off?
Ah, if only the real world worked like that.
And it does for the Chiefs after winning four of their last five games, including two road wins in the division.
Kansas City players will take a five-day mini-vacation.
And surprise, surprise, the Chiefs now enter their bye week at the top of the AFC West.
"To be 4-and-3, tTo be on the top of the food chain right now and everyone has an opportunity to look up at us and chase us. It feels real good," running back Priest Holmes said.
"We're going to have us a couple extra days off," defensive end Jared Allen said. "Otherwise we'd be working. So we all should be able to rest up. And whenever you can go in on a win it's always good, especially now that we're in first place in the division. And you can't ask for more."
The Chiefs will squeeze in a light workout Tuesday before taking some time off.
Do you have references?
I think that the bye week couldn't have come at a better time for the Chiefs.
With the schedule that the NFL has given the Chiefs this year (beginning, and end of season too many away games, but we have done well at the start, should do great with this home stretch we have coming up) the middle of the season is the perfect time to have a bye week.
Let the players heal up, and maybe Broyle will not take the week off and learn more about pass coverage, and start against Green Bay.
I smell controversy on the forum... sniff...
The 49ers own my heart, but the Chiefs will always hold a better than neutral spot for giving my favorite player a place to leave with grace...
