Back home for their traditional Thanksgiving contest, the reeling Detroit Lions are bruised but not necessarily battered.

Though the underachieving Chicago Bears have won two straight over weak competition, they’ve been embarrassed in their last two road games against teams with winning records.

Hoping to ignite a sagging offense and avoid a third consecutive defeat, the Lions try to extend the Bears’ struggles against the NFL’s better teams Thursday. (Read more.)

With sole possession of first place in the NFC East on the line, the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys haven’t had much time to prepare for a Thanksgiving showdown.

In the first of two meetings across 18 days, the Eagles look to remain unbeaten in the division and improve to 6-0 on the holiday when they try to deny the Cowboys a third consecutive victory.

“It’s going to be a great game,” Philadelphia defensive end Fletcher Cox said of the matchup between 8-3 teams. “I’m really excited, man. I’m looking forward to it. We’re ready to roll. We’re ready for Thursday.” (Read more.)

In the midst of a playoff push and faced with a quick turnaround, the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers can’t afford to dwell on past meetings when there’s so much riding on this present matchup.

The NFC West rivals square off Thursday night – the first of two meetings in 18 days – with the surging 49ers trying for a sixth consecutive home victory over the Seahawks.

“A Thanksgiving game where everybody will be watching,” Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson said. “Do you hype that up? Do you downgrade it? I don’t know. (Read more.)

Happy Thanksgiving 2014…


happy

The B.S. Report sincerely wishes you and yours a happy and meaningful Thanksgiving holiday. Thanksgiving is unique among American holidays for it’s a day set aside for “gratitude,” possibly the greatest of all human virtues.

Today, we Americans thank God for the multitude of blessings we’ve been given and for allowing us to live in this great country. Unfortunately, Thanksgiving, like many of our holidays and traditions, is under attack from some quarters.

Whiners, complainers, professional agitators and those in the “grievance” business spend their time pointing out America’s flaws while, rather conveniently, ignoring her greatness. Instead of comparing America with other “actual” nations, these detractors prefer to compare America with their vision of Utopia.

America is not Utopia–but it is the greatest society ever devised by human beings. And America didn’t happen by accident; it came about as the result of a defined set of philosophical, political, and religious ideas and principles–all of which are presently under assault. It is precisely our founding traditions that have enabled us Americans to live lives of unparalleled comfort and freedom–freedom which we now take for granted.

But no society can last forever–especially when the principles that brought about its success are being dismantled and undermined. We must defend and honor our traditions if America is to retain its identity. We must take to heart the words of President Reagan who warned us that “freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

Below is a bit of Americana that is gone forever from the airwaves–a family Thanksgiving Day prayer, courtesy of Jim Anderson (Robert Young) on the ’50s show “Father Knows Best.”

Today, we are also proud to salute those men and women who are unable to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with their families, because they are busy protecting our freedom to spend the day with our families.

We urge you to set aside a moment today to remember the folks who make America possible–those men and women at home and abroad serving us honorably in our armed forces. We thank you.
