What does a weekly NFL schedule look like?

Just curious. Off the top of my head I'm guessing it's like this

Monday: Off
Tuesday: Off
Wednesday: Film, Full Pads, focus on position drills
Thursday: Full Pads, Offensive Gameplan, Defensive Gameplan
Friday: Shelves, Continue installing game plan, travel by the end of the day on away weeks
Saturday: Walkthrough
Sunday: Gameday

Again this is just speculation. I was wondering if anyone knew what a team does leading up to a game.

Smoot... Where are you I am sure you would have some insight into this.

Dirt as I am sure that most guys have Monday and Tuesday off I am sure there are players who do come in for film study and to work out. It may not be mandatory but I am sure guys get in to do some work.

There may be some team meetings or position meetings on Mondayand Tuesday as well depending on if the group want to put in any extra work.

Holy Cow is that intense! I barely can see how most competitive teams can keep that up 16 weeks (let alone 18), but how can an assistant coach on a perennial losing team even begin to stay focused in the latter half of the season. I mean, imagine being the on the Lions staff when they were 0-9 or 0-10, and knowing that the players that the FO had put together just weren't going to cut it, or that the HC had no clue. It must be a gruelling job.

Easy to see why coaches get burned out. It's a heck of a grind.

Re: What does a weekly NFL schedule look like?

One time way back I'm the day I was supposed to spend one week shadowing an NFL assistant coach. After the first day (4am-7:30pm) I was like "Uh you know what I think I've got all I need for this story" It was ridiculous...and then there was Mr. Spurrier who had a considerably more lax routine

Re: What does a weekly NFL schedule look like?

You've gotta wonder how much of those 80-100 hours could be fit into a 40-60 hour week. I think coaches go totally overboard because they're always paranoid someone else is working harder than they are, and it's just become an unwritten rule that as a coach you have to work these insane hours or you're not doing a good enough job. Unless you're Spurrier of course.

Look at what that guy is doing though. Everywhere you look he is either watching tape or in a meeting. They're doing a legit 80-100 hours of work. What do they cut? You'd hate to lose after chopping 30% of your prep time. I know I would.

20-25 hours of meetings per week, god only knows how many hours they pour over film breaking down the smallest details, 10 hours of practice, all for a 3 hour game on Sunday. You can't tell me there isn't some overkill in there somewhere.

Re: What does a weekly NFL schedule look like?

Keep in mind what I posted was just an assistant coach's week. If you're the head coach or a key player add on media and charity appearances

Re: What does a weekly NFL schedule look like?

This is one reason why players are against an 18 game season, and why players get so worn out being in the NFL. It's not Sundays, it's Monday through Saturday

I hear you. Working those hours, it just can't be all 100% focus at all times. There have to be some times where the coach is face first sleeping on his desk, or not quite there during a meeting. It's got to be brutal to have the mental acuity to be go go go from 7am-midnight 3 days in row, plus all the other work on the other days. 100 hours a week? I worked almost 70 last week (not my normal week, trust me) and come Sunday I was ready to fall over. I can't imagine tacking on another 30 on top of that.

The Jets made it look fun. For the kind of money they're getting paid it should be expected they work hard enough to beat the other guys.

Re: What does a weekly NFL schedule look like?

As with any job there's definitely some down time. But still, being at the office for 12 hours a day would drive me bonkers.
