    Could be seen as a 2-edged sword. It brings up legitimate questions, especially for teams that are "not there" yet.

    This article was directed towards the Cowboys, but it brings the question "home."

    Tuesdays are mandatory days off. I only remember Kubiak giving the team a couple of Mondays last season.

    I don't mind a "day off" to be given if it is a body rest day. I would do it as policy though, not reward. I think if it is your job, getting a day off here and there is good but it also isn't bad for them to make it to the complex and at least do some team film session, etc.

    From players twitters it sounds like the Monday after a victory, they come in for a workout and film. Then have the rest of the day off.

    A day after their 28-17 victory at Cincinnati, the Texans' players had Monday off. Head coach Gary Kubiak answered [/URL]questions from the media during his weekly press conference.

    I'm cool with that. They just won on the road and won as if they were prepared to win. After last week's win, I would have them in there on Monday though.

    I think most teams give their players Monday off (or partially off) after a win. I think this is kinda a long standing tradition.
