The NFL Schedulers Apparently Should be Incarcerated in this Thursday Night Football Recap

Yep, that was a long title, but that was the main takeaway in this Thursday night matchup between the capable Seattle Seahawks, and the sad, desperate, and beaten Arizona Cardinals. Ending=No Shocker. The only thing that makes us even remotely care about this game was that CB Richard Sherman is out for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. Ouch, at least its not as bad as this:

Carpenter

Seriously that’s a castration device, which was tweeted by Dan Carpenter’s wife when the newly injured CB made a clearly dirty hit on the kicker just before halftime on Monday Night Football. No response has been made from Kaela yet, but I don’t think she will be crying an ocean in this recent development.¬†This injury is going to hurt the Seattle defense, but this team is still on track for a postseason birth, although the division window might’ve gotten wider for the LA Rams.

Anyways, there was a comment that keeps repeating a similar theme in recent weeks. Doug Baldwin made a comment on how Thursday Night Football should be illegal.

Smart Business Decision: Questionable

Entertaining Most of the Time: Oh God No!

Entertaining Some of the Time: Nope

Entertaining on Rare Occasions:…I’ll Give You That One.

To say TNF is illegal though, definitely not. The NFL has TNF to create more nationally televised games beyond SNF and MNF. This scheduling decision allows the NFL to put every team in primetime at some point in the season. Yes, even the Browns deserve a chance to be in the national spotlight. These games allow all the lower caliber teams to have public exposure, which doesn’t lead to the same few teams getting all of the national attention and glory. It highlights good players on bad teams, and puts teams who’d have a playoff caliber record (Bills) to play once in front of national audience so they aren’t confused when you see them in January (Trust me, one of these days I’ll be right on this).

Doug, I’m sorry your friend and teammate is hurt right now, but you also won the game this week. Seriously, Richie Incognito complained, but that was clearly trying to rationalize losing to the Josh McCown led J-E-T-S, JETS, JETS, JETS (I’m Dead Inside). Please just take the win, calm down, drink a warm glass of milk, get through the rest of the season, make the playoffs, lose to in the Wild Card round because your team isn’t talented enough to beat the Vikings, make it to the offseason, and if you still have TNF complaints we can address them for the 2018-2019 season.
