    It's mostly just about whatever NFL news is out there; games or otherwise. You're welcome to chime in. I guess it would be easier to just have a running NFL regular season thread but I kind of like doing the weekly one just out of habit. Part of my Thursday routine.

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE if the NFL got rid of the Thursday games.

    The players hate it, the play is inferior due to the lack of rest and prep time. The matchups are usually poor, and I cannot get into watching a football game on a thursday night.

    Thanksgiving makes total sense. The rest of the Thursdays.... nope!

    I hear you. I think we're seeing teams and players at far less than their best on Thursdays. I don't know if there's anything to the idea that players are more prone to injury in those games but I am certain that three days between games is not enough time for them to be sufficiently recovered from a Sunday game. But I've also heard that some players and coaches actually like the Thursday games because if they can get through it then they have what's essentially a second bye week on the other side.

    At any rate I don't think the Thursday games are going away. There's too much money in them and I don't think the NFL and players would add a seventeenth regular season game and postseason game just so they could replace the revenue generated from Thursday. They're looking to grow the pie, not just maintain it.

    0% chance the NFL would give up a prime time TV slot on a Thursday night. The viewership and sponsorship are too good.

    Anybody have insight on the Browns/Steelers tonight from a betting standpoint? Thursday nights seem tough to bet, but I have heard to take the under, which I think William Hill has at 41.5. Mason Rudolph the dink n dunker, vs turnover prone Cleveland and a Pittsburgh defense that hasn't been bending or breaking a whole lot lately

    It's all about the benjamins.... ugh. Well, they don't get my viewership in Thursdays.
    Some of the Thursday matchups are unwatchable. Simply an inferior product on the field. Oh well....

    Wasn't it not that long ago the Seahawks had to to travel for a playoff game vs a divisional champion with a losing record? I may not be remembering that correctly.

    Could be. I remember the Saints had to go to Seattle once (the Beastquake run IIRC) when Seattle had a losing record.

    The Steelers are running out of bodies at the skill positions. Smith Schuster, Diontae Johnson and James Conner all out.

    Serious question: has anything like that ever happened in an NFL game before? That was crazy dirty by Garrett

    Wasn’t watching the game but there have to be multiple suspensions with that. Lots of poor decisions.

    Garrett should be suspended the rest of the season. That's straight up assault.

    Garrett is in deep ****. Probably won't see him playing for a while. If ever.

    I just thought of Happy Gilmore when this happened;

    “During high school, I played junior hockey and still hold two league records: most time spent in the penalty box; and I was the only guy to ever take off his skate and try to stab somebody.”

    Lyle Alzado did something similar and think all he got was a 15 yard penalty. Not kicked out of that game or suspended.
