NFL Rep to inspect field

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Here's what's going to be the extent of the field inspection: NFL inspector walks into Candlestick, takes a look at the field, stops for a second or two, scratches his chin and says: "Yep...uh huh...yep...I see it...there's definately a field ...

I have said this before, but I STILL think we're gonna see a situation at Candlestick with, one sloppy, muddy, re-sodded end of the field and one pristine one. And even if the Niners win the toss, I would not be surprised to see them elect to pick which direction they will defend, and set it up so that the Saints are headed into that end zone in the 2nd and 4th, rather than elect to receive the kickoff. SO watch for the Niners to win the toss and pick an end zone, rather than electing to take the ball. Then you'll know the field trickery is on.

Whatever they do, it'll make the running game difficult for both sides.

The only advantage I see in it would be perhaps SF would have a better idea as to cleat sizes. I'd think bigger cleats would be better on those surfaces. I have no doubt, extra sizes will be brought, and I suspect they've been practicing on turf, at least some, as well as outside.

It is true you've got other factors outside, like sun and shadows casting onto the fields, looking into the sun, the brightness, darkness, and of course the big one, wind. Unless the wind gets pretty ferocious, it won't affect the shorter passes. Once again, that disadvantage goes to both sides.

So I think we're going to see a very good game. It may be lower scoring than usual. I'm not sure why I feel that way, but I do. I hope I'm wrong, since I love seeing the Saints' run up the score.

Saints are doing a walk through today on the field and they will have pregame warm ups on it tomorrow. If they can't figure out the field conditions shame on them. I would think after the first game this year on a slick lambeau they would know to bring extra cleats.

I think everyone is overemphasizing this whole field conditions crap. The Saints will be ready for any of the conditions, I'm sure coach Payton has taken the proper precautions along with the equipment managers bringing a few different cleats just in case. Tired of hearing about all this all week, WE WILL BE FINE!

It reminds me of in '09 when everybody was saying that we'd be "rusty" from the time off and that we lost three games. You better believe that SP is tired of hearing how we aren't the same team on the road and can't play outside. We'll be ready

Exactly, if the field is wet, it's on purpose.

Well if it as dry as my bone, then they will not need to wet it
