We May Play The Lions On Thanksgiving Day


Recommended Posts

It's been said that every team will get at least one prime time game in 2012. I would bank on us getting a Thursday nighter

I will just be happy if we have any prime time games next season. Living out of market and not having DirecTV it is hard to see a Colts game unless they play the Redskins, Ravens, Eagles or Steelers.

That's not American. Please don't tell me she has a say during the OSU Michigatz game or your man card will be revoked.

That TV should not be turned off a game the entire day. Okay, maybe turn the volume down during dinner.

What? volume down during dinner? the prayer and family speech must be scheduled during half time.. then grab a plate and turn the volume up, the GAMES ON!

I've been doing a little research about Thanksgiving days and about the possibility of the Colts coming to Detroit for the big day

I think in this regard I've got some bad news...general concensus seems to say that the league is looking to put all teams that have never been to a thanksgiving day game or had a very long drought into the Thanksgiving day games

apparently there was an anomoly in the scheduling formula since 2002 that effectively "locked out" NFC north teams from the thanksgiving games ..this was revised in the '10 season when the Bengals played the Jets...next year the Ravens played the 49ers...who had the longest drought of playing in the Thanksgiving day game...(after the Chargers who have never played)

I wouldn't be surprised if the 3rd game this year consisted of the Steelers and someone else....who knows maybe against the Chargers?

the other thing is that the Colts have played in two Thanksgiving day games in "recent" memory..in Detroit in '04 and against the Falcons in '07

the Texans have never appeared in a thanksgiving game in their current form and the next time the Texans play IN Dallas (the other thanksgiving team) would be 2014 ..unless of course they are added in as the third game either this season or the next

Bad news I know =( all signs point to the Texans..and believe me I hope I'm wrong as it looks like I'll be able to get tickets for the game

    • I don’t know if he could ever be good or not, but he isn’t good enough right now.  Same with Campbell.  I watched most of his reps.  He stumbled on his first get off v a defender and struggled after that.  I didn’t see the other practices and it wouldn’t be surprising for a recovering ACL guy to have a bad day on the 4th consecutive camp day.  They weren’t running a lot of crossers and those type of routes which is where he’s good either.  And I said it was a heavy RZ GL session which won’t necessarily be his strong suit.  I mentioned the nice come back catch in the OP   nuance people.
    • From the college games I watched, I would take Ehlinger over Eason. He doesn't have the fantastic upside of Eason but I saw him trade blows with Murray and best him. I saw him go toe to toe with Burrow in the season when Burrow was a god. When it comes to the tape, I don't think Eason can match Ehlinger, when it comes to big game performance, performances against quality D1 schools, will to win, those intangibles (and heck even the tangibles), I think Ehlinger was the better guy in college. It's all subjective of course but that first OU/Texas game in 2018, Ehlinger wasn't losing that game. When Ballard said the things he said about Ehlinger post-draft, I knew instantly what he meant, whatever 'it' is, the kid has it.    Now, sure Eason has the upside, and maybe he has a Josh Allen transformation (though Allen always had that FACT that he could scramble as a fallback and Eason isnt really a scrambler) but right now, the only thing Eason has over Ehlinger is the eye test. He looks the part (whatever the heck that means) and carries a rocket for an arm, and people have been tantalized by him since high school though not a single coach has been able to unlock that magic apple in the kid, we will see.
