I was almost certain that on Thanksgiving, there were two games: one with DAL, and one with DET...not three games.

Used to be two but due to popular demand there are now three. I'll be thankful if New England loses

There should only be one game on Thanksgiving and it should have the Lions in it. Stop fucking with tradition.

I've never figured Tebow out. If he is that good of an athlete put him at TE or maybe LB, but not QB. He's probably a great guy, just not a QB.

Oh, and GO PATS!

Yes, on the punt unit.

Sanchez is a better QB and I don't think he's very good.

Dallas and Detroit always play traditional Thanksgiving day games. A few years ago, they started having a game every week on Thursday night. The Pats/Jets game tonight is just the standard Thursday night game this week.

Tebow was really just brought in to sell PSLs, jerseys, and tickets, though Woody Johnson will deny it constantly. There are rumors that Ryan didn't want Tebow but had no choice in the matter. Ryan wanted to promote Bill Callahan to offensive coordinator, but they hired Sparano instead. I think he's having this Tebow wildcat nonsense forced on him by either Tannenbaum or Johnson or both.

In case you're interested, there's 2 Mexican soccer games on tonight too.

As painful as it is for me to admit this, I think Tebow's best days are behind him at the quarterback position. The type of offense he can really run is not what all the other teams are running in the NFL. You put him in at QB, you are changing your entire offense around.

I think he's a great person and role model, but I don't see him as a NFL quarterback.

And he looks and runs like a damn tackle now. He's put so much extra muscle and mass on he looks slow running now........he seemed much quicker last year.

Everyone got sick of watching two bottom feeder teams get beat on at home so they wanted to give the fans at least one good game with playoff implications at night.

This is why there is Thursday NFL football at all. $$$$$$$

Each game brings in more TV revenue when the they don't have to be played simultaneously on Sundays.

The NFL doesn't like competition, even against itself.

yeah it was NFL network that started showing the Thursday Nighter's and continued on Turkey Day
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 5:36:30 AM EST
Because the NFL network came into existence and realized what a good deal the other two had.

Because the NFL network wants to televise a game.It has been happening for a few years now.
Is more football a ad thing for you?

Go Pats. Tebow would make a good Patriot receiver. He fits the mold.
