Lightbulb Dome Teams

Old article from our super bowl year, but it explains some advantages and disadvantages of teams that play in a dome.

"Saints quarterback Drew Brees. Since 2005, Brees has not won a game in which the temperature was below 45 degrees -- what's just as amazing is that he has played only five such cold weather games in those five seasons. Brees is 50-28 in games played above 45 degrees and 0-5 in the cold (postseason included)."

The Packers are 2-3 in their last five post season games at Lambeau. Their run to the Super Bowl last year was entirely done on the road. The last miserable cold weather playoff game played there at Lambeau (2007 NFC Championship game, wind chill -24 F) the Packers LOST. Their impressive home playoff record at Lambeau is mostly just hype, padded by years and years of impressive wins by their dynasties in the 1950s and 1960s, the legendary Ice Bowl, etc, and not relevant in the modern era. They are 2-3 at home at Lambeau in the playoffs in recent years. That's not invincible.

Had to laugh.
Teams without a dome are 0-3 at home.
And that is saying what exactly? A non-dome can't even win their home games??

A dome team is 15 percent more likely to win at home than a non-dome team at home -- worth an extra win over the course of a season.
Well that was true when teams like Indy and the Saints were ripping their respective conferences.
And the stats for this season are?? I reckon Indy and Vikings and dem Sheep are doing a great 3-man wrecking job on those stats.

The redskins game in 2009 was a 36 degree game and the 2010 Bengals game was 32 degrees and they won both of them.

The Titans game this year was 41 degrees.

In fact since 2009 the saints have only lost 2 cold weather games, one of which they sat there starters.

I think the saints can handle it much better then they used to.
