Do you take weather into consideration?

Postby chronatog7 » Sat Sep 25, 2004 9:24 pm

When making decisions for your lineup, Do you take weather into consideration?

And what other non-statistics variable do you take into consideration?

I do,wind,rain,& snow can play big factors in a game.

As well as extreme temperatures whether hot or cold.

or strong winds, strong rain.

But this is only to decide between two guys you feel are even, would never bench the stud.

I don't when I'm setting my roster but it does have huge affects on players. Good example:

Ahman Green had a big problem with fumbling in the first half of the season that disappeared in the second half. Why? In the first half of the season temperatures were up and his arms got sweaty, causing the ball to slip. When it got colder, he didn't sweat as much which lead to less fumbles.

I use it as more of a tiebreaker, it doesn't play a huge part in my decision but if I'm deciding between two equal players then the weather will be a factor in my decision.

If all else remains equal- I look at weather to decide which player to take- when looking at WW or deciding between two relatively equal players- especially kickers. I do visit weather.com to check for wind conditions on game day for those non-dome games. Much bigger factor come November December.

the only difference weather could make with me would have to involve playing anyone versus New England in the snow.

He also added the armband thing, which could of been a factor as well.

Weather is not a factor, especially if it is below 40 degrees.

signed,

Tampa Bay.

Of course weather is a factor, everything is a factor. It just depends how much weight you want to give it. A Duce Staley might do well in sloppy conditions where a scatback type might struggle with footing, for example.
