Just heard a KC guy on WNDE say the city is pretty much shutdown right but the worst should be over by early afternoon.  He said that the heated field has kept the field in great shape and he thinks at most it will just be wet.  He doesn’t think weather will be a big factor.

 

he did point out mahomes in bad weather is unknown as he didn’t play in poor weather in college either.

I think it’s crazy to think the chiefs won’t be able to pass in the snow. Like that article says there is lots of evidence it helps the pass because offensive players know where they are going.

Now estimating 6-10 inches.  It will take an army just to get it cleared and get the game on.  

 

The heated field.  If it snows a good amount during pregame and during the game, then melts, it's gonna be wet and muddy - a snow/mud game.

In 5 days, it went from 50 and calm(throw a football in the back yard on Thanksgiving) to nearly a foot of snow - get on a dog sled to get another beer from the Arrowhead concession stand.

That’s Arrowhead lit up begins the Royals’ stadium.   The snow is light. The city is definitely NOT shut down. It would have to get a lot worse than it currently is to cause a problem. 

 

About to to head out to Q39 for some BBQ. I’ll update how the weather is when I return in a few hours.

So my question is......

 

What the # are these people on the KC radio talking about? 

 

Can we actually get a definitive weather forecast?

https://www.kshb.com/news/local-news/kansas-city-schools-organizations-canceling-events-due-to-snow

 

that.  

 

With that said I think he was stretching the truth a little bit when he said the city is shutdown.  I think his bigger point was yeah there is going to be a lot of snow but most of it will be done before the game and that between the tarp and heated field the field should be in good shape.  Maybe some of that is wishful thinking on his part.  

 

Even if its a wet field given mahomes fumble issues and lack of bad weather experience plus playing in his first playoff game that could still work to the Colts advantage.

It just started.  It's not even 6:00 PM in KC.  I believe the winter storm warning starts at 6:00 PM.  It goes from 6:00 PM to 6:00 PM.  

 

Edit: 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

I thought I read somewhere that they're going to put a tarp on the field for the snow?

Yeah, but it comes off for warmups.

 

If you've ever seen the footage, it takes a lot of work, an army of people, to get what they're predicting out of a stadium in just a few hours and get a game on.

From NFL.com:

Indianapolis Colts @ Kansas City Chiefs

4:35 p.m. ET Saturday, NBC

I’ve had my eye on this game for the past couple of days. The forecast hasn’t changed much, but now that we’re a day away, we know with good certainty that THERE COULD BE SOME SNOW SHOWERS.

Beginning on Friday afternoon, snow will hit the Kansas City, Mo. area. The storm has been coined Winter Storm Gia, which will hit through the night and into Saturday morning, at which point her wrath will begin tapering off.

They should get about five inches of snow in total, but less than an inch during the game and potentially none at all. Once the trail end of Gia is on the way out, it’ll begin to disband and leave some scattered flurries and squalls in the vicinity.

Do not expect steady, heavy snowfall during the game.

The field will definitely be sloppy and winds could be a factor, which is probably something to consider more than the snow. Average winds of 11 mph and gusts to 20 mph are expected throughout the game. Since it’s snowing, you can imagine it’ll be cold — right around freezing at 32 degrees, in fact.

The wind could  be a factor more then the cold or snow.

 

Just because we can run  better doesn’t mean we will. If all you can do is run it’s easy to stop. We still have to be able to pass.

If the field is sloppy if could slow KC down.

Back from Q39. Was YUM!

 

Still just light wet snow with no speakable accumulation.  If it drops below freezing, it might accumulate, but as long as it’s above freezing, it’s pretty much just melting when it hits the ground.  We’ll see what over night brings. 

 

Bevies for pregaming acquired!

I have the same size issue when trying to post.  To solve, I email the photo to myself and when I press send, it asks me what size to send the photo in (large, medium, or small).  I choose medium.  Then I go to my received email, save the image, and then use that new resized saved image to post. It now fits the forum size parameters. :)

 

What hotel are are you at?  We’re at the Drury Inn. Colts look to be well represented here.

Well, the Uber drivers were talking about how bad the weather is.  Understand, I’m from Canada and the weather I am currently seeing here in KC makes me go pffft, no big thang.  It’s warm and the snow is comparatively light.

Oh man Uber going to make some money. After titans game everyone was trying to Uber during a down pour of rain. My dad doesn’t get around very well at his age. Ended up paying a 5.6 surge rate to go 4miles which cost me $56. But all worth it with that colts win.

Woodspring Suites is where we’re at, or were, just got done eating at jack stax bbq, heading to Westport for a bit. 

 

Yeah so so far this snow isn’t bad, a little hairy on the way here, got near wideout for a bit, but nothing we’re not used to in Indiana!!!

 

Thanks for for the picture advice, worked like a charm!!!

Wet conditions are going to make it tough for TY Hilton..who's not 100% anyway.

Of course, the same is true for Eric Berry...

 

Looks more wet than snowy

Could slow our defense down, too

But I dont know if Pat Mahomes has played in conditions like this.

 

Ebron has played in cold weather and I'm guessing our CFL wide receiver has also caught some in the rain

    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....  
    • I missed the first couple innings, was keeping track on phone, didn’t realize things got chippy with the benches clearing after the Contreras HR! Seems the Cubs were playing with a little extra edge tonight, I love it!!! 
    • and then NE goes into KC and throws for 350 and Sony runs for 100+ on them. our O, and O game plan just sucked.   i get KC was good, but our O just sucked.
