Brown Convention Center prior to Super Bowl LI between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots. Like millions of other Americans, Joe Thomas spent his early Thanksgiving afternoon watching football. Like a lot of those Americans, he was taken aback by Fox analyst Troy Aikman's clueless commentary.

Unlike most of those viewers, Joe Thomas is a future Pro Football Hall of Fame left tackle for the Cleveland Browns. So when Thomas barks at Aikman for his awful analysis, it matters a little more.

Aikman had expressed surprise and disgust that freshly acquired defensive end Dwight Freeney - also a future Hall of Famer - was not in uniform for the Detroit Lions as they took on the Minnesota Vikings. The Lions claimed Freeney off waivers less than 18 hours before the game.

Aikman repeatedly screwed up player names, failed to see obvious penalties and even forgot which team was on defense at one point in the first half. Football-watching America thanks you, Joe Thomas!
