I saw some tweets tonight about Christian Ponder being hot garbage.
He may not be a very good quarterback, but the real hot garbage is this Thursday night football. Yet another event gone horribly wrong during the Goodell Era. Owners, anxious to suck down more TV money went along with Goodell’s plan to enhance revenue streams. The owners, most of them clueless about how football works, didn’t realize the least viewable, most unwatchable of their games would be placed on Thursday night.
Now it’s readily apparent Thursday night is going to be the least competitive of the weekend. Tonight’s game started 42-0, Green Bay; it’s now 42-7 in the early 4th. Last week, the Giants beat Washington, 45-14. Two weeks ago, Atlanta led Tampa Bay, 56-0 at the end of the third quarter. Not one of the games have been closer than 20 points!
Thursday Night football is an embarrassment to the teams and to the league.
