SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

A fun mental exercise for the aging brain (at least my aging brain): glance at a listing for the week's upcoming NFL games and figure out which teams are on a bye week.

Of course, you have to pull up a game schedule that doesn't identify the bye week teams. But there are several such listings.

My strong preference is to be able to figure out the bye week teams just by looking at the overall schedule, not by methodically going through the divisions team by team.

Some teams are more "invisible" than others. They're harder to notice if they're missing from the schedule. Example: the Titans.

Other teams become more invisible when they do dumb things like relocate and become second class citizens. Example: the Chargers.

Sometimes entire divisions become less visible because they just lack buzz. Both the NFC and AFC South divisions.

Some teams are currently way too visible for all the wrong reasons and should become more invisible. Like the Raiders and Broncos.
