New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis joined Bobby Hebert and Kristian Garic on the Saints Radio Network on Tuesday night to discuss how he and the team spent the bye week. Former NFL general manager and 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Bill Polian also joined the show as a special guest.
"It was different," Loomis said of the bye week. "And yet, man it was fantastic. We weren't able to travel due to the protocols the league's put into place, so you couldn't leave town. Typically, a large group of us, myself included, we'd get away for a few days. But we weren't able to do that so we had a staycation. And look, we got some work in as well so I think it was a good week."
The Week 6 bye offered Saints players an opportunity to get extra treatment, rest, and allow injured players extra time to prepare to become available in the coming weeks.
"The bye week, whenever it occurs, gives your team a chance to recover, rest up and come back with some additional energy," Loomis said. "And we were certainly able to get that done this week."
