This is going to be a really crappy game and boring.

If we win then it will be the game of the week as far as I’m concerned. I just care about advancing.

How many times have we witnessed our Manning era Colts crumble under similar conditions in the playoffs?  Now we have a team that is better equipped to deal with these conditions and some fans are worried about it affecting both offenses and the quality of the game.  You guys can miss me with all that.  I’m looking for the Colts to take this stage and show the world that this is a new era of Colts football...one where we can play and win in any style necessary.  In these Chiefs...we are playing a virtual replica of our past playoff selves. Colts...Let’s show the world just how far you have come. Pumped for this.

I'm kinda new on here. But i'm not too nervous at all. I think the weather and conditions favor us. I'm not concerned about our running game at all. I think Mack may reach 200 rushing yards today.

Definitely snow accumulation over night.  Currently a gentle whiteout!  Perfect conditions for the Colts in their all-white uniforms.  Go Colts!

We haven’t proved we will play well in the snow or cold. It’s just guessing and until they show they can I will be skeptical.

Fair enough.  Our players wanted this judging from some of their enthusiastic responses on social media.  I think they are looking forward to the opportunity to convince their doubters. They believe they are prepared for this.  I think this Colts team is cut different from what we are used to.  We will find out soon.

for now.....  hell, it's even heated, so doubt it gets much actual coverage..... but the 2-3 hours it's uncovered for warmups, it COULD get pretty wet.....  any wind could also be a factor added to wet surface, mud, wet balls, etc.....

We have Hewitt, but he would probably be considered more of a receiving-FB than a running-FB.  Decent blocker though.

 

I can see Wilkins using his vision to have a decent day running the ball.

 

Just no fumbles!

It's not like they are going to be playing in a foot of snow.

 

Bob Sacamano told me there probably won't be much, if any accumulated snow on the field when they are playing.

They’re taking it off kind of early. That field is going to be white by game time.

I was thinking the same thing. Still 3 hours until kickoff.

I'd think some player's pregame routines start before too long. Need to get things setup before that.

You mean versatile?

 

Lucks' arm is just as strong, he just doesn't throw all those crazy side-arm, left-handed, and no-look passes.

 

Either way, the weather affects the passing game for both teams.  There won't be as much snow, but remember the snow-game in Buffalo last year?

Guys calm down. According to the chiefs fans the field is heated and weather won't be an issue.  I guess matter changing states is an anomaly at arrowhead stadium and melting snow acts differently there.  Where normally it goes snow -> water -> water vapor, at arrowhead it must go snow -> butterfly kisses -> chiefs easy victory.  I appeatly should just watch reruns of murder she wrote on the hallmark channel instead.

Doesn't matter if the field is heated

Its going to snow throughout the game, according to the forecast.

 

That's going to limit what both offenses can do.

Says who?

 

There was no forward pass when the game was invented.

 

It was basically rugby-scrums.

But then what?

I know the throwers can throw..

..but its the receivers catching the ball and holding it in the snow that's the problem

If it is that slick I think that does slow Hill down. Probably slows TY down also. This very well may come down to a pound it out short passing game.

Limits the Chiefs passing game? That'd give the Colts a pretty obvious path to victory- in my opinion. This doesn't bother me so much.

Football was orginally played in the fall.....Nobody played after the first week of November

I know you know that.

It worries me. It limits our passing game, too..

Both sides can bring 7 or 8 men into the box because nobody's throwing long

I start liking our chances if that’s the case.

I think you may see a few designed runs by Andrew.  

safest play is a QB run…..and they wont expect it because we haven't don't it all year

 

Could be a lot of running and sliding:banana:

 I also like our placekicker kicker in bad conditions

Ok, so the people that invented football in the 1800s told you the game was "never meant to be played in a snowstorm"...

 

Because it never snowed in November in New Jersey?

 

Got it.  haha

    • With AD, LeBron and keeping Kuzma it is a good start. I have to see what they put around that. Kuzma is a good player. Ingram has health problems and without Ball the Lakers have no outside nonsense with daddy Ball. He was an outside soap opera distraction. Lakers still need shooting and a PG, so we will see.  
    • - Again, you're still in the minute few (and LA fans) that believe those players were equal to AD. I commend Demps for not bending to LA/Lebrons nonsense. NO literally got 1 mid-level starter, and 2 average bench players for a top-5 player. Sorry, but you're lying to yourself if you think NO benefited any from this trade. However, yes, you were right about the trade.    - What good is Kuzma when he's watching Zion eat up his minutes? There is at least some flexibility with the #4 pick that could be traded for another veteran. They could use an upgrade at SG.   - With the way LA is being built, I'd be surprised if they even make it past the Conference Finals, let alone make it to the Finals. 
    • Even though I am excited about the young WRs and even though I didn't like Grigs...I am going to have to defend him here a bit.   With Grigs there is 5 seasons of data points...Ballard only has two (because we haven't yet see how this one plays out from the WR standpoint)...so there are going to be more of these on-year WR "misses." I don't expect Ballard will continue to sign these stopgap WR types...but like Grigs...he was definitely not immune to paying money to crappy WRs.   So I don't think it's totally fair to discredit Grigs for having a "problem" with one-year WR busts...and then toss out the two that Ballard has had in his first seasons. It's been an issue for a long time.   Also...if we judge Ballard on the whole picture...we should Grigs as well. Grigs re-signed Reggie...when many thought they should move on. He signed Avery...the last good one-year WR deal (until this year hopefully). He drafted Hilton. He drafted Moncrief...who people were just as high on as they are Campbell or Cain. He brought in Chester Rogers. He made some pretty great moves...and some pretty bad ones as well.   And while we can be confident about Ballard...when it comes to WR...it's still  wait and see.     
    • Dickerson all-time is a top 5 RB ever. I have:   Jim Brown Emmitt Smith Walter Payton Barry Sanders Eric is #5.  I would take Tony Dorsett over Faulk. 1995 turned me off from Faulk. We would've won the SB had he played in 95 and he quit - BOOO. 
    • I am not a huge LeBron fan but LA is in great shape with AD and plenty of cap space. We will know more once Free Agency is over. I told you LA would get AD, I knew I would be right on that one. I thought Kuzma would be a part of it though. LA even kept Kuzma lol. When Magic offered the deal Kuzma was a part of it but Demps was dumb and didn't do the trade. Kuzma is by far better than any 4th pick they will get. There are only 3 sure picks = Zion, Ja, and RJ.
