    Another boring game with them on. The league need to rotate this and get some better matchup's for us fans.
    Its not a Law that these sorry Lions have to be on every year.
    gee They have been so bad for so long, its depressing.
    YeahI know; Detroit needs the money.

    They're the ones who started the tradition of playing in Thanksgiving in the first place! Give em a break!

    Heard Chris Mortensen on ESPN Radio this week and he said the NFL is seriously going to look into moving Detroit off Thanksgiving for a while. Kind of like, once you get your sh*t together, we'll let you back on!

    They'll keep it competitive well in to the 1st quarter today.

    They added the 3rd night game that will rotate correct? But I would be for spreading the wealth around the league. Why should Dallas and Detroit have the games every year?

    I agree.

    Turkey Day (and having games on other than Sunday afternoon) is a gift from the Detroit Lions. We now have THREE game on Thanksgiving. If you must, ignore the Lions and watch the two other games.

    It is Dallas that shouldn't get an automatic berth. Like Monday and Sunday nights, the five non-Lion spots should be based on projected audience appeal.

    I'm with the "get rid of the Lions" club. They almost always suck - although they do play above their level on Thanksgiving a lot. Enough, get rid of them.

    I'm watching this game and my GOD, I didn't realize exactly how wretched the Lions are capable of being. Don't get them off turkey day, get them out of the league.

    2003: vs Packers [W] (22-14)
    2004: vs Colts [L] (41-9)

    However, also since 2000, the Cowboys are only 4-5 on Thanksgiving.

    Keep it like it is...Thanksgiving games need not be the best one...Detroit and Dallas have had them for years..the 3rd one is the one that they can rotate. I don't mind having a game that I can watch a bit that is a blow out...the games get better as teh day goes on Dallas/Seat...Ariz/Phila...

    No Jersey Selected

    Except that Philly will likely also get blown out if they play the way they did last week.

    That was a good game today...........right?

    The NFL doesn't owe the Lions anything. They owe the fans a good game.

    Personally I would rather the Patriots NOT play on Thanksgiving. The TV is order off in my family when we eat, and eating is not scheduled around football.

    Disable Jersey

    2000: vs Patriots [W] (34-9)

    No wonder BB jumped at the chance to rid himself of over rated Drew Bledsoe, coach killer.

    No Pats on T Day please.
