Doug Baldwin says Thursday Night Football should be illegal

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin is not a fan of Thursday night football games, Gregg Bell of the Tacoma Tribune reports.

"This s*** should be illegal,” Baldwin said of Thursday-after-Sunday games. “It is not OK. It’s not OK. You can quote me on that," Baldwin said of Thursday-after-Sunday games.

“This is not OK. ... Absolutely, guys do not have enough time to recover. You can’t recover in four days.”

So many Seahawks couldn't walk without significant pain after this Thursday night "showcase," about 10 piled onto an equipment cart from all angles outside locker room so they could avoid having to walk to the team bus. Richard Sherman and his crutches plus Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett with his plantar-fascia injury on top of wrecked toe were among them.

When Pete Carroll was asked if the NFL needs to end these Thursday games for teams that just played four days earlier, the coach said he didn’t want to answer that.

“I don’t want to pay anything so I’m not going to comment about that,” Carroll said.
