It’s a short week for most, and while nearly everyone dreams of turkey, tryptophan and tequila (just own up to that dysfunctional family!), it’s also the time that we give thanks to the best and brightest of the NFL. Or, in some cases, the biggest turkeys!
This year, I’m thankful for –
A Raiders Win –
It’s just gotten to the point where no one can root for this hapless team to go 0-16. Derek Carr is actually showing signs of being able to move this franchise ahead. Although it might not happen until Sebastian Janikowski (aka “Sea Bass” aka “worst nickname ever”) is about 80. Don’t worry, thought, I think he’s like 75 right now.
Insane Catches –
Odell Beckham Jr. made one of the most insane catches you’ll ever see in Sunday night’s loss against the Cowboys, celebrated with one of the best memes of the year.
This rookie is making a name for himself and his frosted hair tips make me want to be his best friend. Plus, his dad was Shaquille O’Neal’s roommate in college. He could be the most interesting man in the NFL right now.
