    Those were probably the worst set of Thanksgiving Day games in recent memory. All four teams with terrible records. Coal black rosters. Both games ended in a blowout. It was like Black Friday came early...

    Hopefully the ratings were in the toilet.

    1st Thanksgiving I didn't watch any of the games. Tuned in late to see Dallas getting destroyed by Washington lol. Agreed @Freethinker

    The Washington-Dallas game was actually above average as far as demographics. Two White QBs starting, majority White o-lines (in Dallas' case because of injuries), Schulz at TE for the Cowboys, Vander Esch and Lee playing defense, and Apke, Holcomb and Kerrigan on defense for Washington. Holcomb had a very good game, though Kerrigan is no longer a starter even though he's still quite effective.

    All of the Broncos were sent home because of covid. I wonder if the NFL will give them the luxury of pushing there game out a few days like they did for Eraserhead and the Ravens.

    Chinese Flu hysteria is quickly turning the rest of the NFL season into a farce. Check out this lol:

    NBC Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos may start RB Royce Freeman or practice squad WR Kendall Hinton at quarterback against the Saints after Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles were forced to quarantine following Jeff Driskel's positive COVID-19 test.

    I still find it curious why the NFL won't push the game back a few days. They are extending that courtesy to the Ravens. At least the Taysom Hill led Saints should pretty much be guaranteed a victory.

    In the past the NFL was always leery of extreme disadvantages like this because of the image of a fixed game. If you allow a qb that will be running a rusty version of the Baltimore offense to be fielded by Denver from the outset you might as well have a forfeit as there is no way Denver has any shot of winning this game with a stacked box that will force a former high school and failed college quarterback to throw on 3rd and long.

    PS years ago the Baltimore Colts played 3 games where Tom Matte used a taped wristband with plays attached when Johnny U and I'm assuming Earl Morrall were out. The offense was similar to what Denver I assume will be doing. Matte's arm wasn't in throwing shape and he allegedly had tennis elbow too from too much throwing in a short period of time.

    Larry Fitzgerald is on the Covid list, meaning the Cardinals are down to four healthy receivers -- Hopkins, Christian Kirk, the legendary KeeSean [sic] Johnson, and Andy Isabella. If Isabella isn't utilized as at least the third receiver tomorrow, we can safely place Kucksbury at the top of our list of despicable Caste clowns next to The Rodent, if he wasn't there already.

    Especially if he follows the policy of signing some homeless black guy off the street rather than giving a white man a chance.

    Years ago the Vikings were down to Joe Webb as a QB, what a joke especially since I realized that it is mainly a media product when they had some poor shlep on the talking head show saying Joe Webb gave them the best chance of winning.

    Which means that idiot Nagy will confine him to the pocket Dan Marino 2.0. I'm breaking the embargo and will watch some of this game tonight, but if the commercials are all black black black it will be done in mute for most of the broadcast. I used to be able to watch 2 games a day before I ODed on football but the commercials make TV nearly unwatchable for me outside of recording it and fast forwarding thru that crap.

    I agree. It is absurd that the NFL is making Denver play this game with both hands tied behind their back.

    The Covid hysteria in this country seems to be increasing, when it should be decreasing. The 3 Denver quarterbacks, who are all young and healthy, cannot play even though they never produced a positive test?!? Do people ever question this extreme over-protection and cowardice? Talking with extended family on my wife’s side this holiday weekend, sadly they do not. Its actually shocking to me the amount of freedom they have willingly given up. They’re young, yet adopted a lifestyle of a shut-in and aren’t angry about it. They believe a lot of BS from the legacy media and will gladly lineup for the vaccine when it becomes available.

    It's a lot easier to con people than it is to convince them they have been conned. None of the COVID-19 response makes any sense. The sports response is utterly foolish. How many college or pro athletes have even gotten sick from all of these "positive" tests?

    Jags signed Nathan Cottrell from the practice squad this week. I have a little glimmer of hope that he will see his first offensive touches today. This is important because the last couple times he was elevated from the practice squad and moved back after the game. But now he is actually a member of the 53.

    Yea victim of the Scamdemic protocols.

    Maybe Beebe will get a look, perhaps Chisena can run a few fly patterns.

    Let's hope Trey Quinn gets a few catches and Cotrell gets some touches. It's too bad Burrow is out as I would of enjoyed seeing the Daniel Jones vs Burrow duel.

    Early window QB matchup to watch is Herbert vs. Allen.

    LOL that was the message I sent out on twitter a few minutes ago:

    #CLEvsJAX Will the speedy change of pace back Nate Cotrell get some touches? Jax starting RB is an UDFA so is Cotrell. Cotrell may offer a new dimension to the backfield if he is utilized as something more than a white special teams demon.

    Nice run in the reverse by Isabella!

    "Moose" called him one of the faster guys on AZs roster.

    Jones threw a perfect deep ball and Engram actually caught it.
