I think every team gets at least one prime time game, so people we'll just be complaining about that when the Lions play on Sunday or Monday night unless its against their team. In the end, we just have to become a better team and people will stop complaining. Thye already have a rotation with the NFLN game.
It's unfortunate the last 5 Thanksgiving games, were some of the worst I've seen the Lions play in the Millen era. If its a close game like we had against Carolina or Minnesota or that at Chicago game, well then thats ok. It just makes us look even crappier to the country that the Lions play their worst ball on Thanksgiving.
