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.

They don't deserve it but at least the fans will have something to enjoy their season for lol ... give it to them let the fans enjoy something.

Cheesey (21h) : Go get him Uncle Ted!!
Zero2Cool (21h) : Former Packers pass-rusher Datone Jones is back on the market.
Zero2Cool (23h) : Good news for #Packers secondary: rookie CB Kevin King and vet CB Davon House (quad) both practiced. King has cleared concussion protocol.
Zero2Cool (23h) : Vince Biegel back on practice field!!
Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : Maybe this little shout has no value if people gonna use it instead of the forum.
Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : He's not writing. He's shouting, and its making the shout kind of without point with the clutter.
buckeyepackfan (18-Oct) : Just like last year at 4-6. The guy is just too funny!
buckeyepackfan (18-Oct) : GOOD news Uffda is already all but writing The Packers off for 2017!
uffda udfa (18-Oct) : Masturbation talk from Barfan? Nothing could make me COME back, quicker.
wpr (18-Oct) : Maybe the shout box needs to take a timeout. People keep using it. ;)
Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : Why do this is in shout? So frustrating. Post in forums. Thanks
Barfarn (18-Oct) : Masterbation will relieve some of that nervous tension!
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : Now, a guy they really liked and have groomed for 3 years is the guy. Tons of toys on O. Let's see how it runs with a great coach, now.
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : The Flynn Patriots game has been used to say that he is. Seneca and Scott showed otherwise.
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : Hundley is going to settle the debate once and for all in whether Mike McCarthy is a great coach, or not.
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : Doesn't speak well to the talent acquired by the org, does it? Easy to say talent is great until Rodgers is gone and you have to see it wit
Porforis (17-Oct) : Could Sam Bradford come into the Packers and post a winning record from here on out? Are there any non-starters in the NFL that could?
Zero2Cool (17-Oct) : Teddy is replaceable. Aaron is not. Vikings have a really good defense. We do not. Understand??
Zero2Cool (17-Oct) : You are wise enough to know the difference. Right?
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : Here's one for you, Z. Vikes lose Teddy B. and go out and aggressively get Bradford. Packers lose 12 and go out and get a UDFA.
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : :) Evans had a pre-draft visit with Packers.
Zero2Cool (17-Oct) : Put it in a topic. My lord why so difficult lol

uffda udfa (17-Oct) : Was previously on Eagles PS
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : Tweeted the below due to huge chip on his shoulder for going undrafted after leaving early.
uffda udfa (17-Oct) : Packers add Jerod Evans to PS. He went undrafted: https://twitter.com/rodfor6_/status/858382534274682884
