NFL Week 12: Bubbler gets his Lisch

    Be back in a moment with some games ... :D

    Turkey Day

    San Fran vs. New Orleans is the marquee matchup Sunday afternoon, and the best game of the day is likely Giants-Packers.

    There is no game Monday night.

    Looking forward to Saints-49ers. Should be a good indicator of whether Saints are really back in it. Gonna be an interesting week out here with everyone calling for Kaepernick to start and the memory of Smith playing the game of his life the last time he saw New Orleans. My gut feeling is Alex returns as the starter but with an ultra-tight leash and an expanded role for Kaepernick (who had been getting a few series per game even before this).

    Cowboys-Redskins would normally be two teams playing out the string, but in the parity-loving NFL, 5-5 and 4-6 means a huge rivalry game with playoff implications on Thanksgiving afternoon. That's America, baby!

    Also I haven't seen the line, but take the Bengals minus whatever. Three games in a row the Raiders have lost by double digits.

    The league suspended Ed Reed for his third violation of league safety rules, the helmet-to-helmet hit he put on Emmanuel Sanders Sunday night.

    No Willis McGahee for the Donkeys (out six to eight weeks, torn MCL), but they're at the Chiefs, traditionally a bad spot for them, especially in November and December. Broncos a massive 11.5-point favorite, the fattest line of the week (Bengals next at -9.5).

    It's hard to conceive of the Chiefs being a bad spot for anybody this year, history or no history.

    For a split second I thought you were serious about the MNF game.

    So if you're Harbaugh, do you start Smith or Kaepernick against the Saints?

    Lions-Texans should be a fun game to watch. It's refreshing when the Thanksgiving games are actually worth watching...

    I don't care if the Packers win by 20 on Sunday night, I would still expect the Giants to win if they play again in the playoffs.

    For selfish fantasy purposes, I hope the Giants win 56-49.

    I really hope the Skins beat the hell out for the Pokes.

    I want to live in an area that has a fan base passionate about their football team. Thursday is a big step in that direction.

    Ya, the Redskins fan base has been pretty ambivalent over the years.

    On a related note, Dallas has won all six Turkey Day meetings between the rivals.

    Having spent far more time surrounded by Redskins fans than I would ever want to, 93Devil's comment made me shake my head, too. I didn't think it would change THAT much in recent years and there is a good reason I used to hate Redskins fans almost as much as Zag hates Steelers fans.
