1st real bad weather week overall of season.

Postby Crystalstorm » Sun Nov 30, 2008 9:25 am

Alot of games will be effected by the weather this week.The game that worries me the most is the Tampa game.rain(not the problem),but the wind 20-30 mph wind gust is whats making me think about sitting Brees,for the 1st time this year.I have Cassel(tough match-up Pitt)and Thigpen(Oak)Poor week for match-ups with my QB's.I'll probably still start Brees though.
Other effected game will be in Buffalo,Greenbay,Cleveland,Cincy,and Washington.But watch out for the Tampa games weather the most.Look for Bush and Thomas to get more work(especially in the passing game).

Please don't give me any imput on my QB situation.Just about weather,and what players will be affected the most.This is an important week for most teams,in their play-off hunt.Weather can be a big factor.

Here is the Tampa weather report:


Partly cloudy early in the morning...then chance of showers and slight chance of thunderstorms late in the morning. Showers and chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Windy. Some thunderstorms may produce damaging winds in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 70s. Southwest winds 20 to 30 mph. Chance of rain 80 percent.

This might help.


There is a chance for wet and windy conditions Sunday in Green Bay, Cleveland, Tampa and Buffalo.

Games in Washington and Cincinnati also could be wet, but we're more concerned about the wind. The games listed above all could have windy conditions, especially Tampa. That will hurt the passing game. Continue to follow reports Sunday morning, but we'd still only use weather as a tiebreaker. Don't bench your best players just because of these reports; they have been wrong before.

From CBS Sportsline:

History Lessons: The not-so great outdoors

He may not be Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but there are two sides to Drew Brees. When he plays his games in the cozy confines of a domed stadium, his numbers tend to be big. Subsequently, when he plays outdoors, his touchdown production declines and his yardage sometimes follows. We highlight this because Brees and the Saints play at the Buccaneers in Week 13, their sixth such outdoor game of the year.

Of Brees' 22 touchdowns this season, six have come in outdoor venues. Of Brees' eight 300-plus-yard games, two have come outside.

Winds in GB to. Bet they keep the ball on the ground. especially GB with Rodgers who has little experience throwing in those conditions after hugging the sideline for 4 years. Expect a big day from Grant and I'm hoping the Carolina run game as well.

I like this site best to follow the weather for the games: http://www.weather.com/activities/event ... let_events. Tampa Bay indeed looks the worst. My opponent has Matt Bryant kicking. Yeah! Hopefully this will help compensate for the two points I got from Rackers....

If the weather's in gb is anything close to madison, wi... weather is coming earlier and worse than predicted.

I think the weather gives the Steelers an advantage this week. Great defense playing against a rookie QB in bad weather. Gotta like the Steelers this week.

I can't bring myself to sit Brees with Bush playing. With Bush as Moore as the primary options in the passing game, YAC may be enough to net a decent day. I know that the weather will pretty much shut down any semblance of a deep passing game which is usually Brees bread and butter though. I am hoping for a 200/2 type game from Brees. My other choice was Garrard on MNF but I just don't trust that guy.

If Chris Johnson and TO didn't have as good of games as they did on Thursday I would probably be chasing the better matchup though.
