Is NFL Thursday Night Football overkill?
NFL's Thursday Night Football is great in theory, but in practice, it's a nightmare. Players get less time to rest between games, forcing them to play 50 percent recovered from the last game. That means a lot of dropped balls and a more risk for injuries. It also means a product that is barely watchable and oversaturates the market with too many days of football.
More football is good football. The NFL is in possession of the best professional league for the country's most popular sport. Having Thursday Night games rewards the fans for their loyalty, and now they don't have to wait six days for more NFL football. Sure, you're going to have some bad games, but that's the case on Sundays and Mondays, too. You also get the barn burners like San Francisco-Los Angeles where 80 combined points were scored.
Thursday Night football is awesome, and everyone needs to realize that.
