    I vote yes so I can actually go to the game since I will be home for Thanksgiving.

    But IMO its a sizable advantage to play at home on Thanksgiving, not only for that game, but the following week as well with ten days to prepare

    That said, whenever it comes down to what's best for me or what's best for the team I will always choose TEAM

    Cause I'm a TEAM GUY
    What happened to Denver after they crushed the Midgets last year?

    I am all for it. Could set up nice for a long weekend in NY for me and my wife.

    Yes.

    I don't like having to watch Thanksgiving Day NFL games around the 75-80% of my family who could care less about football, ESPECIALLY if the Jets are on. Watching that 2007 Dallas game was an f'ing nightmare.

    Plus, Thanksgiving is over-rated to me... don't care for it. Christmas, I like. Thanksgiving? Eh, who cares.

    Bring on the home game.

    The best thing about Thanksgiving is the football anyways...so, yes. Plus, I don't live in the NYC area, so I don't have to worry about leaving home.

    No. I wouldn't even want the late game at 4. The 12:30pm game time is great to watch with the family, and is over right before we sit down to eat our feast.

    I wouldn't be happy if I was a season ticket holder, Cause there is no way i'd be able to go.

    Since I watch football every Thanksgiving anyway I'd be happy to watch the Jets...naturally.
    Better than watching Detroit or Dallas for the sake of watching football.

    I think we're presuming that we're the night game based on little tidbits of info here and there.

    8:20pm kickoff.

    Detroit game at 12:30, Dallas game at 4, 4:30. The last two years the Thanksgiving Night Game has kicked off at 8:20, and there is no chance they would move Detroit or Dallas into the night... they aren't going to break that tradition.

    I'm guessing that most of the people who voted YES live out of town. If you don't live in the NY area, having the Jets on a prime time game is huge.

    If this poll was limited to folks in the Tri-State area, the responses would be different (another guess).

    Why can't season ticket holders, such as myself, want a primetime game? Getting out of the Meadowlands is not that bad, especially when the majority of people will have off on Black Friday. You could tailgate after the game a little bit and not fight the immediate traffic, which is something I do almost every Sunday.

    Who ever said anything about you not being allowed to want a primetime game? Where are you getting that from? I'm sure some fans wouldn't mind it - such as yourself, apparently. I said most season ticket holders (especially those with big families), would probably rather not have it. You don't agree with that?

    Also...shot in the dark - you aren't married, are you?
