Thanksgiving Day Footbal Sucks...

This is going to be sacriligious, what I'm about to say. But I'm ok with saying it.

Thanksgiving Day football sucks.

There I said it. It's lame. I can't stand watching it. Always with Detroit and Dallas, two of the most boring teams in the league. I couldn't stand to watch it. So we watched poker on ESPN instead. I couldn't believe it. It had never happened to me before. Normally, I'd grunt and groan and ask to switch back to see the score so many times that we'd just end up watching football. But I've had enough. I no longer care if I watch Thanksgiving day football anymore (unless of course, the Broncos are playing). I can't see why I should waste my time on the crappy Thanksgiving day line-up we're force fed every year.

My solution, which NFL executives are too stupid to implement (I said it), is to give Thanksgiving day home games to the AFC and NFC champions from the year previous. Thanksgiving is supposed to signal the start of the playoff race, so why watch two perennial busts when we could be watching playoff important football? It makes no sense.

And why stop there? How about a Friday night prime time game? Maybe you give it to the loser of either the AFC or NFC championship game (alternate each year?). I sure as hell would watch.

And still why stop there? Give us some Saturday football. An AFC and an NFC game. Of course cap it off with Sunday games... Maybe a Monday nighter (if you're not just switching the Monday Nighter to the Friday Night game).

My idea would provide a hell of a kick-off for the last quarter of the season. The football would actually be interesting, instead of watching Indianapolis blow out Detroit in a game that doesn't matter, or Dallas and Detroit playing keystone cops football in a game that doesn't matter.

But as the status quo stands, Thanksgiving Day football sucks.

Maybe they need to start breaking tradition and stop giving the games to Dallas and Detroit every year. Ive heard this gripe before but it really is an unfair advantage, especially in a short week to Dallas and Detroit to always have the home game.

I'd have loved to have seen Indianapolis vs. NE on Thursday morning...

i think Indy will get shut down by the pats in the playoffs. In the post season the refs turn a blind eye to ty law and company clutching and grabbin

I think they might do the opposite, but we'll see... that's part of the reason I think Indy may be Super Bowl bound. How the officials call it will probably be HUGE....

the game is always supposed to be decided by the players not the refs. They will let that shit go in the playoffs.

2 things in life are certain. Pitching and Defense wins in the postseason and demon will get slapped by a girl at a bar.

We'll see. You know me, normally I'd agree but the Colts offense is the most dominant unit in the league right now, and they ran wild over NE opening week and had a great chance to win that game... we'll see.
