Today on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, LaVar Arrington and Jonas Knox react to the Kelce Brothers praising Thursday Night Football while also calling players who speak out against it. LaVar shares their sentiments and talks about how his killer mentality got heightened playing under the bright lights on primetime television.

LaVar Arrington: "It was a great opportunity for you to build your reputation and notoriety, go out and have a big Thursday Night game and everybody is watching... For the guys who embrace wanting to play on Thursday, you're looking at it like, I not only get one bye but I also get a mini bye-week when I get a Thursday night game. That's how I looked at it and I got an opportunity to play on primetime television."
