That's a pretty smelly bunch of Thanksgiving games. And honestly, Chicago vs. Green Bay isn't a very attractive opening week primetime matchup for NBC. I'd suspect that the somewhat weak Week 1 game means that NBC won the bidding for the rights to the first game at new Texas Stadium in the second week.

Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

I know Oakland vs. Dallas would have been big in the 70's, but if it is between the Raiders on Thanksgiving and the Chargers vs. Cowboys on Thanksgiving, I'd go with the latter at this point in the 21st century. The NFL Network game seems to be the best of the 3 games on Thanksgiving, as even if the Broncos controversy puts their season on the skids, there always is the possibility of bad weather. And you don't even get a 1 year banishment for 0-16?
I guess they hope by putting Buffalo in prime time in Week 1 that Owens might still be with the team by then.

Man, screw you Detroit! The f'ing Lions want to play the Packers on Thanksgiving every year, and the Packers opinion is "We would rather not". Traditionally, Thanksgiving was always the Green Bay @ Detroit game (every year from 1951 to 1963), and Detroit is anxious to keep that history. But just because Detroit wants to play on every Thanksgiving doesn't mean the Packers want to.

And then another nationally televised game against the Bears? I don't know how good the Pack is going to be this year, and Chicago always plays them tough. They lose that game and it'll take them all year to recover.

Als quarterback Anthony Calvillo may have played that game with a cancerous lesion on his thyroid. (
