Detroit and Thanksgiving Day

The game should absolutely be kept in detroit. Detroit is not so good so we might as well leave their fans happy and yearning for a game. Also, Detroit plays inspired and i wouldnt be so surprised to see them play well today.

It's not like Detroit started playing on Thanksgiving originally because they were good, it's because they were willing to.

When the NFL first started playing on Thanksgiving, it was seen as a bad thing. Short week, work on the hollidays, etc. Detroit and Dallas were the only teams willing to do it every year, and now they are being rewarded for it.

Don't change a thing.
