Retweet of the Day - September 27, 2013

NFL Network's Thursday Night Football evokes the expression, "Oatmeal is better than no meal." Three TNF contests...three clunkers for entertainment value. So far Thursday Night Football has been NFL football for junkies: fans who will take anything they can get.

In three TNF games, we've had a Jets at Patriots contest that looked close on paper but never really was and was riddled with penalties and sloppy play. We also had an Andy Reid homecoming in which Philadelphia Eagles fans wanted to run Reid out of town again because Reid's Kansas City Chiefs ran the Eagles out of Lincoln Financial Field. Last night, the San Francisco 49ers destroyed the St. Louis Rams in a lackluster Rams effort on national television.

Today's retweet, from NOTSportsCenter (@NOTSportsCenter), expresses confidence that the NFL Network will live up to low expectations next week, invoking the mediocrity of a mid-major college conference:

"Next week #TNF goes back to college with the Conference USA Game of the Week between the Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns" 

Not everyone shares that opinion.
