    The NFL has postponed Steelers-Ravens. Ed's got more clout than we thought.
    He did not know that the sword he'd hold, would turn his priceless empire into fool's gold...

    It shouldn't even be played this week because of Covid.

    Dude.....in Detroit it is all we've got. Under normal circumstances the Lions Thanksgiving game is a life long tradition. The first time I ever had a deep fried turkey was in the parking lot of the old Silverdome. In Michigan, you always delay your thanksgiving dinner until after the game is over. I understand for the rest of the country it is a chore to sit through every year, but since we ain't ever going to a Superbowl it is all we have.....

    I have no problem with the traditional Thanksgiving day games in Detroit and Dallas, especially since the NFL introduced a third game in a rotating location several years ago. The games will never be more meaningful in other cities anyway so I think allowing those two franchises to continue hosting the Thanksgiving games is fine.

    What I wish the NFL would change is the rotation of teams playing against either the Lions or Cowboys every year. I know that this, in it's own way, has also become 'tradition' and is driven by TV contracts--but those contractual practices have become much more lenient in recent years. In fact, I think the Thanksgiving games in those two cities should always be divisional matchups. Let's face it--nobody is particularly excited to Detroit play a team like Houston on Thanksgiving...but a game against Minnesota, Chicago, or Green Bay will always have at least some appeal. This year is a great example...sure, the NFC East sucks, but the Cowboys-Foreskins matchup will typically be a better draw than, for example, Cowboys-Jets or Cowboys-Chargers. Especially since the third game normally scheduled is in prime time and could feature a key AFC matchup, or at least one of the predicted AFC powers, I see no reason to continue rolling the Houstons, Baltimores, and Denvers of the world out to play a game that likely irritates the players and fanbases of those organizations more than anything else.

    Can't give it up. It is an 84 year tradition. It is probably hard to understand unless you live here.

    I would all for the Thankgiving Day game to be within the division. Many years it is, that way.

    Forgot to pick today's games. I wish they would send emails like they are supposed to.

    As a child of the Detroit area &
    Long time fan who lives in the west, Iím so disappointed at the folly of turnovers & dropped passes in the only nationally televised appearance I could watch. Pathetic & sloppy. It hurts, but then again, Iíve always known I should never expect too much.

    There is a football Jesus! And fired his buddy Quinn as well! The Quintricia era was a debacle, and thankfully Sheila Ford isn't like her parents, in that she mandated improvement and competing for the playoffs in December or else. Watching her at the game Thursday covering her face with her hands was all I needed to see.
