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

    • Sigh...........   This is beyond really frustrating.    You're accusing me of things I literally haven't done.     That's very Irish of you.    Really annoying.      You ask for benefit of the doubt while never giving it out yourself.   I've put certain things into bold.   I'll try taking them one at a time.   Your first bold...   that this is not me saying that teams that aren't doing this are stupid.    I'm sorry, but when you declare that you've come up that you think is clearly and obvously better,  that you think you've re-invented the wheel and sliced bread,  it certainly feels like you're casting a disapporving eye toward any team that's not doing things your preferred way as a matter of course.   Then you claim,  that I want Ballard in the building ASAP,  but not before January.    Let me see if you understand this word.....   NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!   Was that clear enough for you?       If Irsay had decided in the spring of 16 to fire Grigson and hire Ballard in the spring, I would've been ok with it.   It's not desirable,  but if Irsay made that call THEN,  I'd be ok with it.     Where YOU mis-read me,  is that roughly 95 of owners make this decision during the season.    They see things they don't like and they decide during the season to make a change -- typically when the season ends.    Sometimes, an exec will be fired during the season and someone like Dorsey comes in during the season to oversee things and learn about the organization.    I'm fine with that.  There's no record of me opposing that.   I start with January,  because that's when the business season starts for front office and coaches.   Period.   The NFL views it as preferrable.    But making the switch in the spring is doable, as I've said in every post, and which you have ignored or confused badly.    But if Ballard had been hired in the spring of 16,  I'd have been fine with it.   This isn't the first time I've said some version of this.    This is not some ah-ha moment.   As to the bold declaring that there are tons of qualified guys and that CHOOSING the best guy is another story.   Here's my reponse to that.   No.   nonsense.     They are the same story.    They are connected.    Because you play down the fact that most GM's and most HC's fail.   They get fired before their 4 or 5 year contracts expire.   The owner has seen enough and makes a change.   Saying there are always qualified guys is meaningless.    Because FINDING the best guy who will succeed, isn't just important,  it's EVERYTHING.   All 32 teams can announce they hired a qualified guy.    That isn't hard.    But the vast majority of teams are introducing his successor in a few years.    That's why a franchise like Pittsburgh has very little turnover either in HC or the front office.   While franchises like the Jets or Buffalo or Miami are introducing someone new so often, you can practically set your watch to it.     Generally speaking,  the new GM has a long history of scouting and evaluating talent.   The new HC has a history of success, both as a position coach and a coordinator.   They can easily be called qualified,  (though new guys like Kliff Kingsbury and Zack Taylor do NOT have a long track record of success)  But the vast majority of hires...   are soon enough fired.   That doesn't speak well to their qualifications.      As to you meaning what you're saying...   Of course you mean what you say and I stated that clearly.  I don't know why this should rub you the wrong way.  I literally wrote that I know you mean what you say.    I said what I said as a rhetorical point,  not an attacking point.    My ultimate point was made at the end of my first post to you.   You typically write persuasive arguments.    You're able to frequently made me see your viewpoint.    But not here.    You accuse me of not considering your argument.    I'm sorry,  I am considering what you write.   But I don't see the typical high quality Superman argument.   I don't see points that connect.    Your argument feels like the one you'd make for doable.   It doesn't convince me at all that it's preferable.  
    • Yeah, Ballard said he's a patient guy, and he doesn't mind waiting to pick. We almost traded back from 34 as well if Rock wasn't there. I personally love the "trade back" strategy at the end of round 1, and wouldn't mind doing it in most every draft. A late 1st for a mid-second and early/mid second (from the Redskins) over two drafts is fine with me!
    • Haven't done research on the 2020 draft yet, but if it ends up having an elite WR or OT, I wouldn't mind trading up this year. We'll have to see where we finish (hopefully 32 ), and make a decision from there. Ballard landing the Redskins 2nd rounder may be a brilliant move.
    • I had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change.
