No it isn't. They started the tradition.

Watch they'll get removed from their own tradition just in time for them to get good. This is a team on the rise for sure, led by Mr Suh.

Wow. If a cutting edge station like CNN says it...I gotta get worried.

Lions football on Turkey Day is a tradition whether you like it or not.

Won't happen in the next ten years.

Cowboys got beat and they really suck this year. And they were added to the Thanksgiving schedule long after the Lions were playing.

Chances are a lot of teams don't want it anyway.


It's an incredibly short week.

You got yer rotating game on Thanksgiving night anyway.

But they forgot to show up in the 2nd half......

I'll have to check, but I think our DB Alphonso Smith is gonna lose his job.

He got juked three times in one play and it cost the Lions the game, IMHO.

Then Green-Ellis railroaded him and carried him into the end zone on another play.

The Lions are 5 players away from making the playoffs.

You can almost see Sonny Jurgenson setting up in the pocket.

I was pulling for 'em YAZ!

Yea, Alphonso Smith had a pretty rough day yesterday.

Yep, Jurgensen firing that ball to Charlie Taylor. And Bobby Mitchell. And Jerry Smith, the tight end.
