It’s that time of year, ladies and gents. It’s Turkey Day. The day where we all show our appreciation for the little things and relish all of our friends and family (just hours before we all go out and maul each other for gaming consoles and Elmo dolls).

The Philadelphia Eagles take on the Detroit Lions tomorrow in the Motor City and, to be quite frank with you, there may not be a whole lot to be thankful for if the Eagles play like they have been in recent weeks. But, hey, it’s Thanksgiving. Turkey for everyone!

In light of such a splendidly ironic holiday, I’ve decided to compile a list of things that Eagles fans should be proud of.

Obviously, there aren’t nearly as many things to be thankful for as most were expecting back in the preseason, but there are definitely a few nice things to ponder as your Eagles Thanksgiving Gameday unfolds.
