Bad weather question

Postby JohnnyQB » Sun Sep 25, 2005 8:52 am

Ok, we all know that teams run more in rainy weather, but does a wet field benefit the running back, or defense. Greenbay and Chicago are looking like rain today.

Well, your running back will probably get more carries.....but it will of course be tougher for him to run.

It benefits the offense more because they know where they are going but they need to make smart cuts and breaks on the field so they don't go down.

It's true! The offense knows where the play is going and the defense is forced to react. In sloppy conditions, more often then not, the defender is the one who slips while tryingto cover a WR.

If I had to pick between my D playing in bad weather or my D playing in normal weather, I'd take bad weather 10 times out of 10.
Anyone remember New England versus Baltimore last year, in heavy rain? NE allowed 3 points, had four sacks, an INT, and a FR for a TD ;-D
