Weather Worries

Postby perlick29 » Wed Dec 10, 2008 9:24 am

Going into tomorrow night I'm growing concerned. Temps are supposed by freezing or below freezing by tomorrow night. Weather can be tricky to analyze so I'm wondering are there general rules for bad or cold weather?

I've been assuming that it would favor the run game to have precip. But general cold weather may not have that big an effect. What do all of you think?

I think we'll see a lot of run tomorrow... Don't forget about the wind in the windy city...

You stick with your studs unless the field conditions are horrible. I would only consider sitting studs like Brees, Warner, Manning, etc if they were playing in a blizzard or on a very sloppy field.

Any thoughts on Hartley? He's been pretty good the past few weeks and the NO offense is solid but maybe the weather puts a damper on him?

I've always heard that weather has effects on the passing game if it's really cold (think like zero or below), raining/snowing very hard (for visibility), or there are wind gusts above 20 mph (accuracy). There are other issues regarding how the field responds, but most cold weather fields are built with that in mind.

Personally, it would take quite a bit for me to sit a stud. I have Bush going tomorrow and I'm in a must start position anyway, so maybe I'm doing a little wishful thinking in that the game isn't going to be affected by weather.

Well I've got Lance Moore who is good but not a stud, and guys like Steve Breaston/Anthony Gonzalez on the bench so I guess I can't really sit Moore down. Can I?
