Happy Week 13 and Thanksgiving week. Last week was all about giving…yep this is directed at you Green Bay Packers and Los Angles Rams. And since these teams were so thoughtful to give early, I though it would be nice to also give THANKS.
So here are the three things most thankful for during the 12 weeks of the good, bad and the fugly!
The trading of Minka Fitzpatrick, Marcus Peters and Jalen Ramsey are the good I am thankful.

Minka Fitzpatrick, last game: 6 total tackles and one fumble recovery. For the season so far, 53 total tackles, five interceptions, eight passes defended, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. Oh and two defensive touchdowns.
Marcus Peters, Baltimore Ravens, last game against the team who traded him: eight total tackles and one interception.
Jalen Ramsey, wanted out of Duval and he got his wish. Now a Los Angeles Ram, he finished last night’s game with six total tackles. Granted, the entire Rams team pretty much looked overmatched on Monday Night Football. But it is hard to argue that the move hasn’t been good for both Ramsey and the Rams. His stats so far this year include 41 total tackles, three passes defended and two forced fumbles.
Hmm can one be thankful for bad? Yes…yes one can, especially when the bad translates to, “Mama that is a bad man,” and of course we have that.
Hello Nick Bosa. Week Five (has it been that long ago?), the Cleveland Browns faced the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. The Browns lost 3-31. But that isn’t what you remember about the game. You remember two things: 1) a proper introduction and removal of doubt about how really…really good the 49ers defense is; and 2) Bosa holds a grudge.
Bosa finished the game with four total tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. What we are most thankful for is he recreation of Baker Mayfield’s flag plant when the Oklahoma Sooners beat the Ohio State Buckeyes at Ohio Stadium two years ago.
So bad, it’s good.

Okay, so actually there is nothing about fugly that makes me thankful. It is by definition fucking ugly.
So forget that. Let me say, if you are reading this…I am thankful for you. Happy Thanksgiving and hopefully good luck in the last push towards your fantasy playoffs!
