I'm thinking he's saying with our Oline, we can run the ball against the Chiefs better than they can run it against us.  And longer passes sail more in a strong breeze.

I mean...all he's saying is that, the worse the weather conditions are the better it is for the Colts.  Which is true.

I get the feeling that he's trying on T.Y.'s clown mask.

He’s just saying the Colts will be ready tomorrow regardless of the weather, how many here have said the samething this week?

He's right. The conditions being less than ideal helps the team who can control the trenches (that's the Colts, I know, it's weird).

Well..not really.  He's saying that they feel poor weather is better for the Colts than it is for the Chiefs.

In the wintery tundra of Kansas City, I’m picking whichever team has more Estonian giants on their defensive line.  Not sure which team that might be but it seems like a smart bet.

Let me be clear. He's right and I see now problem saying so. With all the chirping KC is doing nothing wrong with being confident

I'm not saying he isn't correct. I'm just not sure why he needed to tweet it.

Because he is Jim Irsay and just can’t help himself.

He's just responding to a lot of talk that the Colts are an indoor team.

It's some things that you think in your head but don't say out loud.

Ya think? 

Jim's just excited for his team. He should be, they been playing very good. He does have a point with our running game and the Chiefs poor run defense. Why someone would have an issue with Jim is beyond me. :dunno:

The tweet puts unnecessary pressure on the team to win and it's a brutally tough game already. I get being excited, but this game is far from a given. I was confident in the Texans game, I'm about 55/45 Chiefs here. We have to play perfect.

The thought of him wearing a cheerleader outfit and holding those pompoms while throwing one leg up in the air made me throw up in my mouth, lol.

I like it. I hope we buck this whole notion that an indoor team can't play outside... 

 

How many college teams have indoor stadiums again?

I hope it is a cold-run the ball-stop the run kind of game.  I would lose all of my anxiety if that were the case

I don't think Jim tweet effects the team at all. 

They are playing with house money now and having fun.

The tweet puts zero pressure on the Colts to win.  The only thing it might do is cause some amount of embarrassment for Irsay if the conditions are poor and the Colts lose, and even that is questionable.

I see nothing wrong with the tweet. I don't even see how this could be seen as something that could fire up the Chiefs. It's not like he said we were going to go out there and stomp them into the mud. I would love to work for a man like Jim Irsay. I think all he was saying was that he believes in his team.

With us being an indoor team, it's counterintuitive, but yes, it should favor us.  This isn't the 2004 Colts.  In fact, you could argue we're playing the 2018 version of the 2004 Colts.

 

Frank played in Buffalo.  He knows what to do.

Something to think about is we have some players on this team that are used to cold outdoor games. Inman played for the bears and Ebron played in a division with some cold outdoor games.

No people are taking it to mean that.  He doesn’t say one word about the Chiefs, he just says the Colts will fired up and happy with the weather if it’s sloppy.  It just means he feels his team is ready for the conditions, again how many here have said the exact samething this week?  The being fired and up and ready for the wether has nothing to do with the Chiefs.  They could also be ready for it and tomorrow could be a great game.

You really think a tweet and will create more pressure than knowing if they lose their season is over and if they win they are one game away from going to the Super Bowl?

I think it's a form of trash talking that will fire up the Chiefs some. I trash-talk myself, but if I lose, I'm the only one that looks bad. If we lose, then not only does Irsay look bad, but it paints the team in a poor light because Irsay was talking trash for them and they didn't back it up. Not in favor of it really. Irsay is starting to get cocky, and that's when you lose.

Ya... I'm sure players will be dropping passes and missing blocks because they just can't stop thinking about this tweet...

I'm not sure how I feel about this tweet, Jim. I'm confident too but... 

It means they, kc, will have to run more and we can stop that better than we can their pass. Plus we have a great run game  matchup, which is perfect for cold, snowy, windy weather.

I disagree.  He specifically says the team will be "happier" with poorer conditions. Why would the team actually be "happier" about poor conditions unless they feel that poor weather conditions give them an edge in the game?  And when you compare the Chiefs offense vs the Colts it's very clear that poor weather conditions favor the Colts.  The Chiefs are a pass-happy offense driven on big plays in the passing game.  The Colts are one of the most balanced teams in the playfoffs and they've shown a far superior ability to run the ball compared to KC.  That means that poor weather conditions favors the Colts.
