The weather at Candlestick. Bad time for the Niners to be having the nicest January in memory. San Francisco would be better served with a slick field Saturday, to slow Sproles and Graham. But the weather's been almost summery, with consistent bright sunshine all week ... and it could be a 67 by gametime. Saints weather.

If that field is sloppy it'll be on purpose. Should the NFL realize this, both organizations should just get on BART, zip over to Oakland, and play the game there.

Our thoroughness comes from years and years and years of not having "Wins" to discuss.

I'm with Hulka...they will see that the feild is there.

Not like they aren't going to let them play or anything.
Right, plus it's a day game, so power won't be a factor. An outage might lower concession sales, but not much else

I think the wet field would be safer

After reading their boards and listening to SF fans smack talk all week, I am starting to think that the Niners might have blacked out the power at Candlestick against the Steelers on purpose, to cause a game delay so Ben's novocaine shot in his ankle would wear off! There really was never a good explanation given for what happened with the power there that night. Could be a scenario like the dude from "Airplane" pulling the plug on the runway lights.

Can we please stop worrying about the tides?

The stadium is 14 feet above sea level and is entirely unaffected by the tides or the fog or anything like that, except rain. I am here on the Peninsula right now. It is sunny and cool, not cold, and a perfect day for football, just like it will be tomorrow. There is no rain or tsunami in the forecast.

Nothing else to see here, we can move on.
