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?

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

    • Willis - the 4th round pick they traded up to get will be lucky to make the 53?  Man that is highly questionable. I’d say he is much closer to a lock to make the roster than be cut prior to opening day. 
    • Well Im back been a long haul , my wife being blind had rotator cuff surgery and been in bad turn at same time so my cups been full.  But look lol the Central is just about where I left it. 162 games tells the story . Cards Cubs Brewers all right there together.
    • Faulk was a great player, but he was never a pure grind out yards type running back. Edge was.   James is a huge part of why the offense exploded in 1999 after we traded Faulk & drafted James. The play action to Edge/ bomb over the top to Harrison was absolutely LETHAL 
    • As you have noticed,  I have taken a long time to respond.   Apologies in advance,  my response is long....   Everything you think I "overstated" I personally think I understated.     And I think all the arguments you used to make a case that the spring is more ideal than the winter is hugely overstated.   Look at the last sentence of your post...    how you describe "looking at the bigger picture and taking your time..."        Says who?      Who says an owner didn't look at the bigger picture in December as a disappointing season was coming to an end and that a decision was rushed?    That's entirely written by you as opinion based on zero known facts.    And it's your interpretation that better decisions can be made in the spring.   Huh?    When it's too late to fire the HC and his staff that gave you the disappointing previous season that got the GM fired in the first place.    Now, your new GM has to deal with a HC and staff that he didn't hire.   Now everyone in the building is walking on pins and neeedles wondering if they'll get fired or be retained.   So,  all the advantages of doing those decisions in winter of Y1 for the new GM,  now have to be done in winter of Y2.     So, if they're going to be done,  how is it better to flush a year down the drain and do it the following year?   I see lots of opinion,  and very little fact.    You've tossed out a number of interesting names that are available now....    nice names and none were in the running for a GM job 5 months ago,  and suddenly you think the next hot GM is in the pile?    I appreciate that Nick Caserio might be the exception to the Patriots rule from the BB tree....    but BB has a poor record of turning out good HC's elsewhere.   He might someday....   but not so far.    Front office is decent I think, so maybe Caserio is good?   But Don't you want to get all of this done sooner than later?    Don't you want to rip the band-aid off ASAP?   Doesn't the new GM want to hire his own guy,  his own staff, ASAP?     And if you think the answer is no,  then why don't all GM's who get hired in January,  do it your way?    Why don't they keep the staff,  the HC,  coordinators and assistants,  all the front office types and the scouts,  and do all the changes the following winter?     Why don't they do that?   They don't,  do they?   I really wish this was just a simple thought experiment.   That you were simply making a case that making a GM change in the spring is do-able and not anythig else.    Some here don't understand when it happens at all in the spring and I've made the argument several times that the spring isn't as bad as you think.    Doable under certain circumstances is perfectly OK.   But you're not doing that.     You're not arguing for doable.   Instead you're arguing for desireable.    And you think it's an easy decision.    I confess that even as your biggest admirer,  perhaps BECAUSE I'm your biggest admirer,  I find this position more than a little head scratching.....   Just saying....
