screw tradition it is time for random teams to play on thanksgiving.today you have 3 nfc teams playing and one afc team bunch of bullcrap
At least now there's a third game on Thanksgiving that has differing teams each year. Problem is it's at 8:15pm and I have to get up early for work tomorrow.
This (Cards-Eagles) should be the best game of the three. Unless the Eagles stink up the field really bad again like the past 2 games. Which would be fine with me! I personally think the Cardinals are the better team anyway, even if the Eagles do decide to show up this time.
I hear ya about the Lionesses and Cowgirls. But the tradionalist in me still doesn't mind it continuing. Heh, used to almost always be the Lions by Thanksgiving were about 4-7. Meaning they were still technically alive for a playoff spot, but a big long shot. Today though was really something. An 0-11 team on national tv. And they sure did play up to their record!
I remember a Thanksgiving game many, many moons ago when we played Dallas.
Yes the excellent 1995 Chiefs went into Dallas at 10-1. Dallas was 9-2. Great Thanksgiving game. We lost though.
We've gone to Detroit on Thanksgiving quite a handful of times, but not since 1996. We did have a Thanksgiving game a couple of years ago at Arrowhead on that new NFL network system.
Wow this Seattle-Dallas game is just as awful as the Titans-Lions. Are the Seahags that bad? Or is Dallas just too good? I think a combination. Seattle is playing hideously. Can't stop simple runs down the middle. Dallas has 7 sacks now (1 more than the Chiefs all season) and Seattle has zero sacks.
Man I can't wait for the day we put all of this nonsense behind us, begin a new era, and start playing real football again!
