Anybody else tired of seeing Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving

WTF why do Detroit Lions always play on Thanksgiving day? Detroit has not had a winning team in 40 years Time to put some good NFL games on for Thanksgiving

I have to say, that this is the first year the guys have NOT watched football. This year they were too enthralled in my Xbox. ONe game was James Bond and the other was Need For Speed: Underground 2...Guess the games weren't that important to them year...WTF

No. Detroit Lions on T-day is a tradition whether they win or lose. (Mostly they win on t-day, but oh well its still passes the time) Besides, I think You are only saying this to try to piss off twisty, so back off my Lions pal.

detroit and dallas will always play on thanksgiving..its tradition, and the NFL is huge on keeping its tradition going year in and year out..

but they do suck, no doubt..manning and co. made them look like high school kids..

Well, that's what I'm sayin!! I heard something about it last year but the NFL and Detroit squashed the idea! It is a great tradition!!

the colts are all kinds of beastly this year..but their defense may just be their downfall in the playoffs,..its good, but not that good. poor lions didnt stand a chance with manning,harrison, james & co rollin into town..

yeah..now whether or not he'd actually do it, i think would largely depend on if the lions would give up thier rights to him..so we'll see..

Well Damn. That would certainly be interesting. Just to see if if could break that record. But with him coming out of retirement, that's not always a good thing. But each player is different.
