Accuweather now says KC could get 6 inches of snow total?  Predicted to be over before the game starts.  We'll see.

Weather channel is still saying less then a inch. It will be interesting to see what happens.

I don’t see that on accuweather. I saw less then one inch. I also saw something that it was going  to be dry for both AFC games.

Click on Saturday.  It says storm total 3 to 6 inches.  Friday night to Saturday,  I presume.

 

As long as it stops by noon, as predicted, it shouldn't matter.  Heated field - field should be covered.  You'll just have snow piled up on the sidelines, as I believe they did the last time we won in KC.

 

If it hits later or is worse than currently predicted, you have a completely different game.

 

Might alter travel plans.

#12.. are you sure that's not centimeters they are talking about ? If so that would be around 2.5 inches

I see it now. Looks like mostly Friday. Not really worried about the weather. You can’t do anything about it. If anything maybe it would slow KC down.

I'm guessing the current model shows 3-6, but they apparently haven't updated everything else, so who knows exactly when it might hit.

Hi y'all. Operational Meteorologist chiming in here.

 

Current National Weather Service forecast calls for 1-3 inches Friday night. Temperatures will be above freezing Saturday, so precipitation looks to be rain, with the chance hanging out pretty much the entire game.

 

Gameplan: Give Mack 40 carries, and Hines 15. Run, run, and run the ball some more RIGHT behind Kelly and Q.

Lets go Colts!!

3-5 inches with a chance of snow lingering throughout Saturday afternoon and through Saturday night.  Even worse in the central part of the state, which could create problems for traveling Colt fans.

This is pretty * big. Let's hope it stays that way.

Sunday will be a bad day for the guy who does the Chiefs' laundry, however. Lots of mud and grass stains on the backs of their D-Line and LB jerseys, and some nasty stains on the inside of the uniform pants.

Hopefully they will have a whole year to get those stains out! :funny:

I feel cheated with the bad weather. Cold was fine, but rain or snow and the game will be horrible to watch

I think it’s supposed to be over by gametime. I see where your coming from. I think if we lose we will feel we got cheated that conditions were not good. If we win we will laugh because the chiefs couldn’t do what they wanted.

Wouldn't bad weather conditions benefit the team that runs the ball and stops the run better than the other team?  (The Colts)  And be a hindrance to the team more reliant on the deep passing game?  (The Chiefs)

My point was not knowing the result we can’t reallt predict how we will feel with the weather.

I'm still not sure I follow.

 

Of course I want a Colts win, no matter what the weather is like.

 

But if I had a choice, I'd love a snow-game.  That's real playoff football!  (Plus, it would be to the Colts advantage, or more precisely to the Chiefs disadvantage)  :thmup:

If we lose a snow and cold game we will feel cheated because we might not of been able to give our best effort.

 

If we win  cold snow game we will be jumping for joy because it probably effected the chiefs high flying offense. 

 

A cold snow game doesn’t necessarily mean the colts will have the advantage. We can think that but until the game is played we don’t know.

I guess I can see that.

 

The Colts might have won the Bills game last year if it hadn't been in a blizzard with a foot of snow on the ground.  And a Colts win is more important than enjoying a good snow-game.

 

But I love snow-games.  There's something magical about football in the snow.  :scoregood:

Ebron has played in some cold and snow games when he was with the lions. He said he loves them. Leonard was dancing in the cold and snow yesterday. So seeing those two guys it doesn’t seem that it will effect them to much. But I still don’t completly trust this team in the cold and snow.

 

Everyone wants to play NE if we win this game. I would rather play the chargers where the weather will be gorgeous and the stadium might be half colt fans.

I seem to remember a BIG rain storm was expected for our "playoff" game in Tennessee.  It never materialized until ,arguably, it benefitted us (late).

  If things turn out well this time weather-wise,  then i'm convinced this team is on a "higher" purposed quest.

 

My vote is to run the ball down their throat in the snow and our guys can get a tan next week in LA (hopefully).

I'm hoping for a clean field.  But who does some snow benefit most?  Some could argue us.

I am over-thinking everything lately.

With Mahomes arm, I dont know that it matters that much. 

No, but with 0 degrees and 100% chance of snow, it hinders the Chiefs primary weapon, which is passing. With us having the better run game, no offense to Damien Williams, and the lack of the Chiefs run D, it will significantly help us.

Looks like it's still snowing at 4:00 PM to me.  If this is right, it will be snowing right up through kickoff.

from what I am seeing it looks to be snowing before anyone even wakes up in the morning on through to the end of the game. Now how much sticks is another story, but it could mean a lot of snow.

Most of it would be cleared off.  They'll have the field covered, but they have to take the tarp off for a few hours before the game for warmups, so whatever hits in that time period would be on the field.  They do have a heated field, but I'm not sure how much effect that will have.

I'm not sure poor field conditions would benefit the Colts.  

On a good field, I think the Colts running game is easily going to do well against the Chiefs.  I'm afraid poor conditions may level the playing field a bit.  

 

I had myself convinced that the Colts could take KC down.   Now we may have to deal with a bit of an X factor.

 

But I have always loved weather games.

From what I'm reading, very good chance it's played in the snow, with possibly more than an inch on the field - snowing, snow on the field.  

 

Frank played in Buffalo.  He'll know what to do.

I just checked, it looks like snow throughout the night and day. 

 

A lot of our guys played in the Buffalo game last year. This won't be that, of course, but if we're the more physical team -- and I think we are -- the weather is to our advantage.

Yep, field will definitely be covered, & I just found out about the heated field today. The Chiefs are basically a dome team, who knew?

I think that Buffalo game might serve as advantage for those that played in it last year tomorrow.  

 

I remember Saturday talking about doing cold ball drills before the Ravens game in 06 because there was a chance of rain in that game and how he hated it but also saying how it paid off for them in the Super Bowl when it did rain.

 

If you recall the Bears struggled with the elements early putting the ball on the ground twice.  The Colts had some issues with it but not as many and looked like they were more prepared for the weather, which according to Saturday they were.  

 

We might see something like that tomorrow.  I honestly don’t know KC’s history of snow games but snow games are hard to prepare for unless you have played in them.  Clearly the Colts played in the mother of all snow game last year and while this won’t be like that guys can probably draw on that experience.  

 

Still, if weather is a fact this game will come down to protecting the ball and establishing control up front.  On paper the Colts should be able to do that but  KC’s lines aren’t bad.  I think bigger question will be how can Patrick handle the nerves of his first playoff game and can he protect the ball in less than idle conditions.  He’s had issues with fumbles this year.  If the Colts can make him put the ball on the ground or pick it off and turn it into points that will really help their chances.

    • Based on his game by game stats here are my impressions.     He folded against some of the better teams.  I understand he doesn't have the talent around him to pull out a win in these games, but I expect a good future NFL QB to have a decent game where he would at least post a stat line that would show that they are alone willing the offense to moving.   Just doesn't happen.     Against LSU - 15/30 for 130 yards 0 TD's 3 INT's   Again I get that he probably had to play hero ball here but I would like to see some hero ball that is actually successful   Against BYU   29/49 394 yds 1 TD 3 INT   His team was down only by 7 at the half.   So you can't excuse his 3 picks on him having to force things.  He chose to force things.    On top of that in games that are competitive.   Against Wake forest.  A game that I will note Utah State was leading at the half  (No excuses)   33/48 416 yds, 3 TD's and 3 Int's.  Given that this was a 3 point game his int's probably cost his team the game here.     On top of that he had an RB that had 141 yards on 19 attempts for 7.1 yds/carry.     Against Nevada which they won handily.     13/31 169 yards 1 TD 1 Int.  In this game he had 2 RB's over 8 yards per carry, another at 6.2 yards per carry, Defense chipped in 2 Int's and he had a kick return for a TD.   Who the heck throws 31 times with your run game and defense destroying them like this?     To be fair towards the end of the season and the bowl game he had some pretty strong games.   But I don't think I can look at this and say "he was on a bad team".  To me the best construction I can put on this is a guy who started believing his own hype, called his own number far more often than he should and endangered the ball far more than he should have in order to impress the scouts.   To be fair if that is the case it can be corrected and it does seem like he might have done that late in the season, in fact he has some statistically solid to good games towards the end of the season after his team was destroyed by BYU.   But at the same time at the beginning of the season he never seemed to lift his team to victory and based on the stats it seems like he might have called his own number or forced some things that actually cost his team the victory.   This does raise questions about his maturity which I think he has to answer.        
    • I 100% agree, and I see the Chargers being the winners if they want him.  Makes sense, his family is there, they already have a home in LA I believe, and he get to prove he was great even without BB.. (the last part be harder to prove at his age.. now 5 years ago yes.. lol)
    • I heard Colin Cowherd say he thinks we are the best fit for him next year if he doesn’t re-sign with NE. Creative coach, great organisation, excellent young O-line.  Personally, I think he’ll re-sign with NE, just putting that out there.   Thinking objectively about this here. Brady is at least top 2 in GOAT status. His football IQ is off the charts and his drive and leadership is close to being unrivalled. Seeing that we have his former understudy and good friend JB in the QB room currently, would he want to sign here?   At #13 I think we miss out on Burrow, Tua & Herbert. If we were to not pickup a QB early, would you support signing Brady to start/mentor JB for another year and try again next year at a QB of the future?    
    • I wouldn't say this upcoming draft or even possibly the 2021 NFL draft will define Ballard as a GM, but this will be his toughest draft yet in my opinion. I realize that you have to draft best player available, but yet QB is always in the back of your mind. Whether he decides to pull the trigger on a QB, that could possibly define him. Hopefully the scouts and Ballard do the best possible job with the QB scenario because it's going to be super tough to pick in my opinion.
    • I would never do it today unless it was my girlfriend. Different times now. I think people overeact too much, but it is what it is.
