The season is five months away, but Denver already got plowed
The NFL has seen fit to make the Donks-Giants tilt the third Thanksgiving game next year. In the four years since they added the third T-giving game, the NFL has made the Donks play in it twice. What the hell?
Playing on Thanksgiving is not an honor. Maybe for Jaksonville or Cincy or some other squad that nobody gives a rat fuck about and doesn't get any attention, but not Denver. We've had something like fifteen prime-time/nationally televised games over the last three years. We don't need a time slot all to ourselves. But hey, Denver's in the news! Maybe Cutler and McDaniels will get into a fistfight on the sidelines!
The only good thing about being "gifted" a two-day prep week in the middle of the season is the fact that it's a home game. Great...like that's mattered since '05.
