Some NFL players say Thursday night games are a threat to their health and the League should stop scheduling them.
"I don't think it gives players any chance to recover. I think it makes a better opportunity for them to get hurt. I know the game is popular and you want to see as many games as you can but I would do away with Thursday night games."
Koch's broadcast partner, former Texan N.D. Kalu agrees and says there are just a couple of benefits.
"After that Thursday night game, especially if you're having a successful season a lot of the coaches will treat that like a bye week and just give you a couple of days off."
Both say the quality of the games suffers because the players are sore.
"Just think how many Thursday night games have been any good; not many of 'em. And that could wind up hurting the NFL more than helping it because the product's just been so bad."
