Welcome everyone to the week long pregame coverage of Thanksgiving football!

I am your host Cole Ryan and I will be here leading up to kickoff

Unlike the Saturday and Sunday morning pregame show, we are trying something different for the Thanksgiving football schedule!

We have threads up for all of the games on Turkey day. As the week progresses we will add all of the information that we can find from around the league. This information will help bettors try and find a winning angle to make money on Turkey day!

Feel free to chime in with who you think will win and why. The idea is to share information and picks and join together to get some winners for turkey day!

If this does well we can do it every week for the midweek games, so let us know what you think.

Thanks for your input in advance and let’s find some winners!

Cole

The Lions are having an awful season and they are starting to self destruct and it started last week with WR Titus Young and he will miss this game

The Lions have had enough of Titus Young and his temperamental ways. He was sent home from the practice facility Monday, and coach Jim Schwartz said he would not play in Thursday's Thanksgiving game against the Texans as punishment for repeated selfish behavior that culminated in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Packers.

Schwartz would not term the punishment a suspension, but he said Young probably wouldn't practice again today and his status would be re-evaluated on a week-to-week basis.

"When you play a game like football, it's a team sport and players have obligations to the team, and Titus hasn't done a very good job of fulfilling those obligations this week and recently," Schwartz said. "He'll be inactive this week, and we'll plug the other guys in and go on."

Young's poor play caused a rift between coaches last Sunday

Young lined up at least two times in the wrong position Sunday, once on a crucial fourth-quarter series when the Lions failed to gain a yard, and had a verbal confrontation with receivers coach Shawn Jefferson that precipitated a shouting match between Jefferson and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan caught by Fox cameras.

Lions have offensive line problems

Jeff Backus’ streak of 186 straight starts will be on the line Thursday.

The Detroit Lions left tackle has not missed a game or a start since he was drafted in the first round in 2001.

It’s an amazing streak, that might be broken due to a hamstring injury he suffered on Sunday. Although Backus has not been ruled out.

“If he’s not there it’s going to be different, shoot I know he wants to play, I know he’s going to try his best, so I don’t know,’’ center Dominic Raiola said. “It’s hard to think about him not being out there, we’ve got to move forward. He’ll be the first one to say we have to move forward and play without him.’’

Kubiak says he knows the players are beat up and it's a short week. The players are being fed steak and lobster tonight after practice.
