LOS competitive disadvantage

I'm not sure if you saw Pagano on the McAfee podcast talking about how the Colts have a disadvantage in a one o'clock game when the roof is open and it's sunny.     How in the world was that not discussed when determining the home and away sidelines?   I'll post the segment.   They talk about it early in the video.    There is some salty language.    Watch at your own discretion.

Many fields are this way.  Growing up, most high school fields were set up that way. My HS, the town i now live in switched to the “shady side” maybe 5 years ago after decades and decades looking into the sun.  
But i’m referring to a setting sun not  a1pm overhead sun.

not sure if was for warmth (sun) or what (for HS fields) , but i also often wondered about orientation.

I am not sure but it wouldn’t shock me if the NFL has a rule saying which side of the stadium is the home side and which side is the road side because some teams (cough) Pats (cough) would switch sides every week if they thought it gave them a better chance to win.  I think the better question is how do the people who designed the thing didn’t see this as a problem.

I'm not suggesting they switch it week to week.    The sun during August to November doesn't drastically change.   How did no one even think about it is my question?

I know you aren’t.  I was just saying why I wouldn’t be surprised if the NFL doesn’t have a rule for it.  I honestly don’t know if they do or not.

For watching on TV, it sucks when the roof is open.  
 

I’ve only been to 1 game live at Lucas and the roof was closed, so I cannot comment on the live dynamic comparison. (I’d have been to more live games, except I live in a different country. lol)

I agree about the watching from home.

 

However, having been to several games,  I personally like the roof being open...weather permitting.

    • Like or not, the hype has already started with his return to practice, and it's only going to build steam..... More justification, or slight of hand, from the delayed gratification crowd lol....   I'm not sure Dayo will impact Defo either, but it's pretty clear they drafted Dayo with the intention of moving him inside (per Baker directly). And if that's the case, and he turns out to be good, it absolutely will impact Dayo. I mean, what are you going to do with two 3Ts that are good. Not play a NT? And Defo's contract runs out right when Dayo will need to be extended. But first he has to be good...    Not sure any 3T is going to have monster numbers in our scheme, unless we have a monster DE on one or both sides that draws doubles.

    • Let’s have a wait and see approach on Dayo…..  Dude is coming off a serious injury.   Also I don’t believe Dayo being good will effect Buckners contract or importance to the team.   But Buckner does need to start playing up to his $100m level…
    • Here's a cut from an article (link below) talking about working him back slowly.   “I’m not that ‘throw it all at ‘em’ guy," Baker said. "Here’s what I worry about. If expectations are too high or if the things you’re asking him to do too much, he’s not going to have success, and if they don’t have success early, then what are they recording? They’re recording failure.   "And there’s going to be some of that, and they can learn from some of that, but if they’re overwhelmed, then you’ve got to get them out of the hole. Him and (first-round pick) Kwity (Paye), to a lesser degree — they’re developmental players. They’re talented developmental players, but they’re developmental players.”   To speed up his learning curve, the Colts want Odeyingbo to play primarily as a defensive end early in his career. The Colts know the maturation process for a defensive lineman takes time. Every rep taken in practice is vital to the long term progression of a defensive lineman. Odeyingbo said his understanding of the game and three years of starting experience at the SEC level should allow him to get up to speed after missing time during training camp and the preseason.   He may look like an All-Pro pass rusher, but he's solely focused on improving his craft and putting his impressive tools to use on the field.    "For me, I'm really coming in with no expectations," he said. "I was finally happy to get out there yesterday and kind of like set a baseline, and be able to grow from something. ... I'm just trying to get better every day and that will take me where it does."    https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2021/10/21/colts-de-dayo-odeyingbo-achilles-flashing-potential-return/8501968002/
