Can you imagine how Thanksgiving Day would have been this year with no football? No 10-0 Packers at 7-3 Lions? No 9-1 San Francisco taking on 7-3 Baltimore in the Harbaugh Bowl? No shots of a pained and grimacing Jerry Jones in the owners box in Dallas, occasionally missing as he attempts to high-five anyone around him when the Cowboys do make a play?
We shudder at the thought. But football isn't only back, it's about to get really, really good. Turkey Day has never been so rich on the pigskin front. We are indeed a blessed football nation.
