The NFL had been making billions of dollars but player safety has been a big issue. Thursday night games have been good ratings for CBS and the NFL Network. However, the quality of the games have been less than outstanding because the teams are dealing with a short week. They are also dealing with injuries and trying to game plan for their opponents. Maybe by the time of the next labor agreement the NFL will do away with Thursday night games. I have no problem with the opening night and Thanksgiving games, but having Thursday night games during the season cheapens the product and goes against what they are trying to do with player safety.
