Will a long lagering primary time hurt?

If my lager is ready now to start dropping in temp will it hurt to let it wait long enough to brew another lager this weekend then ferment it at the 54F then drop both down at the same time?

I just bottled a beer I brewed almost two months ago. I took a shot taste of it and wow. Even flat it would be fine to drink. I musta been halfway sober or totally soused when I brewed this one.
