Best weather possible, but will it matter?

High of 18 Friday, nighttime low of 2! Lots of wind.
High of 30 Saturday, nightime low of 23, light breeze
35 and rain all Sunday, 10-20 winds.

When temperature is under 40, dome teams are 3-25 in the playoffs.

Are we up for this?

Re: Best weather possible, but will it matter?

It will be tough for us as we are a dome team but the thing to remember is that this is now a one lose and season over scenario. So we should be pulling out all the stops and playing our best and giving 100% all of the time, which will hopefully get us the win!

GEAUX SAINTS!!!!

Play the way we are capable of playing and the super bowl is within sight. Play sloppy, get down early and we are in for a long offseason.

Re: Best weather possible, but will it matter?

I love it

What better way to silence the critics

Win this one, green bay wins
You play in Carolina Weather can be quite nice

Win this one San Fran wins
We play in Seattle. Weather iffy

So this is our worst weather game unless Green Bay runs the table
Beats San Fran and Seattle (highly unlikely)
Which would mean we would play Eagles, Carolina, Green Bay
Cold, warm, deep freeze

What's the Feagles record with temps in the 20s? Yes, they have to play under the same conditions, last time I checked.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but we play Seattle no matter what... #1 seed plays the lowest remaining seed which would be us if we beat the Iggles.

They had a bounty bowl game in 1989... Will they attempt this twenty something years later?

I think we are. I just can't imagine that makes the difference. Once you start running around you're warm. I imagine that if there is no wind then it all comes down to protecting Drew. I just think if given time he can get after their backend.

Drew has played in colder weather in college and in the nfl (nfcc in Chicago) I'm sure we will be prepared and our kicker is also familiar with cold. Long as we try and contain Shady + limit turnovers/ 3 and outs we can squeek by.
