Thanksgiving Football Game Threads (With Bonus Picks Contest!)

| November 24th, 2011

I don’t want to do it. I doubt I’ll be able to do it vocally. I’ll probably do it with a clenched fist and a few extras beers than normal. It will make me a bit sick. Today, Thanksgiving Day 2011, I’ll be rooting for the Green Bay Packers.

On this day it is customary to give thanks and so I give thanks to each and every one of you who has spent even a second on this site. It is my passion, my first love, and I hope to keep filling space with my ramblings for years to come.

Also today…

  • I don’t consider the Dallas Cowboys a serious wildcard threat but it wouldn’t hurt having the Miami Dolphins knock them off this afternoon. A 6-5 Cowboys teams would only get into the postseason by winning the NFC East.
  • Root for the San Francisco 49ers. Why? Because aside from the quest for a perfect regular season, we’d want the Packers to have something to play for when they meet the Lions the final week of the season. Keeping the Niners close is a good thing.

We’ll be doing the Picks Contest as always this weekend but we’re giving you an opportunity to get another notch in your belt. You must get all three Thanksgiving games right to be credited with a perfect week. All picks must be in by 12:30 PM EST. Here are the lines:

Packers -6 LIONS / COWBOYS -7 Dolphins / RAVENS -3.5 49ers
