No.. there should be some type of rotating schedule for the holiday games.. great national exposure chance for clubs..

That Lions pact from years ago.. it should be scrapped.

I seem to be one of just two people that voted yes.

I love tradition and history, that's one of the things that makes the NFL so great. Soccer is one mess if you look at things like that.

And what's more fun that laughing at the Lions while having a stuffed turkey(?). Titans - Spartans, I'd almost feel bad for them. I actually hope Culpepper has a huge game, he deserves it.

They deserve it when they earn it.

And judging by their play the past, oh.. FOREVER, they don't deserve/earn it.

Give it to another team. Just not the Raiders, Cardinals, or any other consistent failure teams.

I vote no, they are hardly an NFL caliber team anymore.
I would like to see a rotating schedule between AFC and NFC teams.

I would like a consistent schedule of the Packers playing on Thanksgiving :)

I was going to vote yes, but I realised that I personally don't give a damn about tradition generally, and having two playoff calibre teams play will generate greater interest in the NFL. So I voted no.

I voted yes, because they come out with some surprises like a win,ya never know they could win .After all their only on their 3rd q.b and they do have talent they jsut keep leaving it in the locker room.

i'm not sure i'd say they "deserve" it but it's a tradition.

Here is a good article discussing this subject. And i couldn't agree more. Get this crap off my tv.

Lions on Thanksgiving is one turkey too many

Money that's flooded into sports has usually overwhelmed traditions.

So it's doubly amazing that the sports world's Daddy Warbucks the NFL clings to a Depression Era invention that makes no 21st-century sense: playing Thanksgiving Day games in Detroit and, later, in Dallas leaving fans with the less-than-festive Tennessee (10-1) vs. Detroit (0-11) on Thursday.

The Lions, despite not having a winning season since 2000, actually draw pretty well. In this century, the team's Thanksgiving games have averaged 11.9% of U.S. households. The Cowboys, despite being America's Soap Opera and getting a later (and thus better) time slot, aren't doing much better averaging 12.1%. That suggests fans are hungry for any Thanksgiving Day NFL action imagine if the NFL rotated game sites to schedule something tasty.

Howard Katz, NFL senior vice president/broadcasting, suggests "one thing people have forgotten is how we got this. Lots of clubs felt it was hard to sell a game on Thanksgiving, that it might conflict with other local traditions or it would be hard to get municipal services. But more clubs have expressed interest and there may be a reason to re-examine it."

Well, yes, given that this quaint anomaly has somehow survived in a media-savvy machine whose annual TV revenues $3.7 billion are about the size of Fiji's GDP. The NFL manages to give NBC prime-time flex-scheduling despite a complicated formula mandated that neither Fox nor CBS will give up more than 23 Sunday games each season for the NFL's 42 prime-time slots. And next week, the league tests 3-D TV game coverage "a glimpse into our future," says Katz in hopes of making a 3-D theatrical movie of the 2010 Super Bowl.

So why the stale Turkey Day menu?

No way. I'd rather see a competitive game on Thanksgiving. If it involves the Lions, it's not really going to be competitive. As I write this, Lions are losing 35-3 at the 2 minute warning in the 2nd quarter. lmao.
