The General’s NFL Proclamations-Thanksgiving Edition

Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick are set to do battle again.

Thanksgiving brings food and fellowship. Nothing is better than hanging out with family and catching up on everything. But along with food and fellowship comes the love of football. Today the NFL will be broadcast three games and people will be glued to televisions watching the action. But unlike the expected glued eyes to the NFL television sets, there will be some unexpected performances and results. With that being said, let’s get into the General’s Proclamations for Thanksgiving Day in the NFL!

Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions

  1. Lions running back Theo Riddick will have 100 total yards and a touchdown versus the Bears. The versatile running back gives the Lions an option similar to Reggie Bush, who will be missing today’s game. And he will give the Bears fits.
  2. Matt Forte will not get 70 yards rushing versus the Lions. Forte has been pretty steady for the Bears this season. But going against one of the league’s best defenses will bring his numbers down a notch.
  3. Ndamukong Suh will have two sacks versus the Bears. Seems like Suh has been pretty quiet this season. But you better believe that he is a big reason for their defensive success. And on Thursday he will shine.

Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys

  1. Mark Sanchez will throw two interceptions. Sanchez has had some great moments as the starter for Philly. He has also had some interesting ones as well. I think we see a couple interesting ones coming Thursday afternoon.
  2. Philly’s LaSean McCoy will rush for 100 yards versus the Cowboys. Shady has gotten his groove back and despite the rank of the Cowboys defense, they can still be ran on. And the speed of the Eagles offense along with the tempo they use will allow Shady to get more creases to make things happen.
  3. Dallas tight end Jason Witten will have two touchdown catches versus the Eagles. When you look at the safeties of the Eagles, Malcolm Jenkins is solid, but Nate Allen is someone is not very reliable. With Dez Bryant at wide receiver, I can see the Eagles giving him more attention, giving Witten more favorable matchups versus potentially Allen. That is not what the Eagles and their fans will want to see.

Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers

  1. Frank Gore, not Marshawn Lynch, will rush for 100 yards. The veteran running back has been a stalwart in the 49ers backfield and the Niners, when focused, have ran the ball very well. A pattern has definitely been set over the last few weeks with teams running right at Seattle with success.
  2. Colin Kaepernick will throw one interception. The 49ers quarterback has made a pattern of making one mistake the last few games that leads to an interception. I believe he makes one mistake this game and the Seahawks make him pay.
  3. The winner of this game will not score more than 20 points. Both teams are physical and run the ball. But both teams are also inconsistent offensively. That will lead to some unfinished drives and field goals.


  The proclamations have been made. The general has spoken. Enjoy Thanksgiving and enjoy the games as well.

    Miss Cleo wants her ball back . The Bears suck and anyone who remotely believes in a Marc Trestman coached team led by Jay Cutler has to be out of whack with the universe .

    The Niners need consistency and it is something they are sorely lacking . Their 19-3 loss to the Seahawks puts them in jeopardy of quite possibly not making the postseason given the fact of the mediocrity within the NFC South .
