This thread is for discussion of action on the field before, during, and after the three Thanksgiving games of the 2006 NFL season: Miami at Detroit, Tampa Bay at Dallas, and Denver at Kansas City. You can talk about who you think will win or lose before the games start and last-minute news on Thursday morning. Then during the games, discuss strange plays, great performances, and stupid announcers (of which there are plenty).
A separate thread will go up Friday morning for discussion of Sunday games, and then a third thread Sunday night for discussion during the Sunday and Monday night games.
Please ask your fantasy football start/bench and waiver wire questions in the discussion thread for Scramble for the Ball.
In an opening week where even the elite teams in college football looked mortal, the SEC had two big surprises in Texas A&M and Georgia defeating their South Carolinian opponents by big scores.
