Your body just starts to feel better. Players who would be held out of practice that day are forced to play. Its was a stupid idea by the NFL to market their network and make more money. When college teams play a Thursday night game they have at least one more day of rest and often the team has a bye the week before.
The defense, AJ Green, BJGE
Andy Dalton, the OLine
Ben Tate, the other WR's.
Oh my goodness, Mayock was unbearable. His defense of his draft guru miss on Burfict--"no one drafted him, therefore my 'he's undraftable' was correct." Or, all the teams AND you were incorrect. He would have been a good draft pick and the team that picked him would have looked like geniuses if they had done so.
He made me miss Dan Dierdorf---well almost.
With that said, the last two games have shown that a smart betting man wouldn't bet on the NFL. The Bengals play decent against the Cowboys, lose on two 4th qtr drives. They stink up the joint for half the game last night, win by 21.
