    Are thursday night games really a good idea?

    These Thursday night games sometimes concern me because the amount of time that a team has to prepare and heal up from injury is only a few days. This year we are seeing more players hurt when they play games so close together and personally I don't really think it's worth it to play on thursday nights...especially with the playoffs so much giving teams less time to get ready can have an adverse affect down the road for the rest of their games.

    The next thing you know they'll start having teams play on a Sunday, then Thursday night game and then the following Monday...you laugh but at the rate the NFL is going and talking about overseas super bowls, more overseas regular season games and God knows what else I wouldn't put it past them.

    I personally love Thursday night games...I know it has to suck for the players to have a short week....But the more NFL the better.....I would even watch the Texans/Broncos game tonight but I have a Pokerstars tourney tonight and I can win some nice cash....So I'm doing that instead...lol

    I'm watchin the game right now but what sucks is you have to have NFL Network to watch it. Its not on ESPN or any regular channels, so most fans are probably screwed outta gettin their NFL fix.

    Fortunately Bryant Gumble isn't commentating tonight because he's sick...but they said he'll be back next week That man has to be the worst I think I've ever heard. How many times can you possibly mispronounce a players name or get your facts wrong about a team in a single broadcast !

    To hard on the players if they want thursday nite games do it in begining of season when teams still have their byes so they can go bye week thursday game then back to regular schedule. While on subject should get rid of it on NFL network. Not many people have it.Stupid how the nefl continues to take stuff away from the working class. Odds are a working class family can't go to superbowl. Never going to go to Hawaii for the ProBowl. Regular season games are starting to get a little crazy.

    I don't like the Thursday games due to the hardship it puts on the players, the game is grueling enough without getting that extra day or two of rest. I have DirectTV w/ the TICKET so I have access to all the STEELER games when they are on regular tv. Also have the NFL Network, which I love....... espically the injury report at 1145 on sundays so I can make any last minute changes to my line-ups there's my

    One good thing about it if you come out of a Thursday night game banged up you got a few extra days to heal up
