It’s Thanksgiving Weekend - Are You Ready for Some Football?

This has been one crazy season in the NFL with so many changes happening in rapid-fire succession. Coaches are coming and going, players are out with Covid, and at least ten teams are in the running to vie for a spot in the Super Bowl. It’s anybody’s guess who will be playing at SoFi Stadium in February.

The LA Rams vs. Green Bay Packers and San Diego Chargers vs. Denver Broncos games are both on at the same time Sunday in the 1:00 Pacific time slot. Why did the NFL decide to go with that schedule when LA is the second biggest media market in the country and fans will be trying to watch two games at once?

Art thinks Justin Herbert of the Chargers is the best QB in the NFL he’s seen in a long time. He thinks the Chargers can beat the Broncos with five or six key impact players, but several other players are out with Covid on the defensive line. Can Herbert lead them to victory?

Real Sports ran a heartbreaking story about 950 former Michigan Athletes, both male and female, who claim to have been sexually molested by the team doctor in a period spanning over 30 years, only to have the university cover it up. The doctor still currently works for the university – how can this be allowed to happen?

Fred has some great choices for the Heisman Trophy, and a player from UCLA might figure into it. Does the substantial win over rival USC (and a possible Heisman candidate) bode well for Chip Kelly and secure his job with the Bruins? And after that loss, will USC find a permanent coach to help the team?

Mark Few’s highly-ranked Gonzaga basketball team routed the UCLA Bruins, who went from being seven-point favorites to losing by 20. What happened to the winning team of the week before?

There’s a bounty of sports ahead to be enjoyed, and Fred and Al count that among the many things they are thankful for this holiday weekend.
