You know the NFL slate on Thanksgiving. Packers at Lions. Raiders at Cowboys. Giants at Broncos. Obviously, the perfect time to bring the bird to the table Thursday will be right when Oakland-Dallas kicks off. This leads to the question that comes up every year: Should the NFL continue the tradition of having the Lions and Cowboys play on Thanksgiving. Vote in the poll below to let us know what you think. On a side note, three of the six teams (Detroit, Green Bay and New York) playing on Thanksgiving don't have cheerleaders. Dallas' cheerleader Web site is a trainwreck and the Raiders, well, they're the Raiders. So I'm thankful today for the Broncos cheerleaders.
