Online sports betting fans should be looking at an interesting game on Thanksgiving between Green Bay Packers guard Josh Sitton and the Detroit Lions when they meet at Ford Field.
The offensive guard ripped their defensive line, coach Jim Schwartz and members of the Lions’ defensive coaching staff.
Sitton had the following to say: “They go after quarterbacks. Their entire defense takes cheap shots all the time. That’s what they do. That’s who they are. They’re a bunch of dirtbags or scumbags. That’s how they play, and that’s how they’re coached. It starts with their frickin’ coach.”
Two days before the Thanksgiving NFL game, Sitton went ahead and criticized his NFC North rivals.
During Sitton’s regular radio appearance on WSSP 1250 AM in Milwaukee, he was asked whether Detroit would try to knock out Green Bay’s quarterback Aaron Rodgers if he were to return Thursday from the broken collarbone that has kept him out since Nov. 4.
“Absolutely; I don’t think there’s any question about that,” Sitton said Tuesday. He went on to add further comments.
Rodgers is not expected to play versus Detroit even though he returned to practice on Tuesday.
YouWager experts point out that there’s been bad blood between the two teams recently. Two years ago on Thanksgiving, Detroit’s defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was ejected after stomping on the arm of Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith.
When asked how Green Bay can keep the Lions from playing dirty, Sitton added, “It’s all about attitude, man, you take it to them before they can take it to you. We have to set the tone of the game as the offensive line. We’ve got to establish the line of scrimmage and establish that tempo and the attitude early in the game. We have to be the ones that are in charge and not let them take charge.”
