Bye Week Isn’t All Fun And Games

Last week, we learned that lots of players had relaxing bye weeks planned, from head coach Mike Shanahan’s family-first focus, to receiver Anthony Armstrong’s tropical stay-cation.

But not everyone kicked back and relaxed over the bye week.

For players that joined the team this offseason as free agents, this was the first down time since the end of July for them to get organized. Punter Sav Rocca was a free agent, and makes his offseason home down under in his native Australia.  After living in New Jersey during his time with the Eagles, it was time for a little bit of reorganizing this past week.

“I got away and went back up to Jersey, seeing if we can sell our house up there” he said of his bye week.  “We’ve still got a little bit of furniture up there, so we moved that back down.”

Fortunately, Rocca didn’t lift too many couches with his legs, and saved a three day weekend to relax and “chill out with the family a bit.”

Players are back at the facilities preparing for practice, and they seem to be emotionally recharged as they prepare for the Eagles:!/doughty37/status/123410968079372288!/AdamCarriker/status/123405730375143424!/HankTime85/status/123419057360875520!/Em_Whyte55/status/123427880951750656
