Turkey Day players?!?

I have to think the Colts should still produce pretty well. The Lions defense has been very underrated this year. They are the leading D/ST in our league. Even over the Ravens.

I can't BELIEVE I forgot he was playing his brother! Argh... that will be one awesome, emotional game. And on Thanksgiving, no less! I can't believe I have to miss it... :-# :-# :-#

As for Dallas prospects, I think Witten and Jones are solid starters. I know, Jones, a solid starter? He didn't even get 3 ypc. ButChicago was averaging 118 against the rush, and Baltimore was averaging 105 (before this week totals). The Cowboys usually light it up on Turkey Day, and Jones should get a lot more practice in this week. Not to mention, that was his first game in a while. He should preform much better against Chicago... how would you like your first game to be against the Baltimore Ravens? I'd say Jones will be a good #3 RB, maybe reaching #2 RB status. At least I hope.

No one is mentioning the Bears D being a good start after one bad week? Come on people, no one stops the Colts. The Bears D should tear the Cowboys a new one turnover wise.

I know, I actually thought it was a pretty questionable call to bring Jones back for the Ravens game. However, 80 yards against that D his first week back is very reassuring.

Notice the use of the word usually... :-° The Fins was an exception to the Cowboys usually good Thanksgiving Day preformance. I can't find a site that has their record...

I hope you are right, with both Brown and Green possibly out I might have to use him behind Droughs (other option being Wheatley). Damn this sucks, and I thought I had some decent depth in RBs.

I am starting Edge, Manning, the Bears D, and possibly J Jones. It's a tough call starting wither Jones or Moss in his first week back.
