Should be fun...
Should be alright. We've got 5 running backs with the skills to get Randy, Wes and Tom dry towels between plays.
We may have to run the ball against the falcons weakened run-D. Nah, they'll be expecting that.
It will also be raining heavy in Giants Stadium. Probably more beneficial for the Jets as it will slow CJ down.
The weather will help the Pats.IMO
I, too, expect this to be more of a positive than a negative. 5 RB's to cycle through, and 3 tight ends plus Edelman, Galloway, etc. All they have to do is get 3.5 yards per play, and we should be fine.
I can get into a good grind it out running game and let Welker and Moss rest.
great, sounds like the perfect time to bring a couple of 4yos to their first game :help:
Maybe we should pass 50 times.
Only kidding (I hope).
Everything is setting up for a good running game.
I've always wondered if there are drawbacks to playing your home games in a dome. It would be great for the Pats to get out to a lead early on. Make the rain add to the Falcons misery...
Somewhere in the New England area, Michael Turner is looking out his hotel room window with a big grin on his face.
The game rests on his thighs.
BenJarvus breakout game?
let's run the football ! Go Pats !
Which of our backs are the better mudders (although there won't be mud, just rain)?
Id say Fred Taylor
If it's slippery, then I'd have to say Faulk. He has the quickness and foresight to get those extra couple yards. Just treat every down like it's 3rd down...
Some folks would go for a good pounder, when it's raining and slippery, and try and bulldoze the line, but if you have a smaller, agile back, then it's a LOT harder for those big honkin' linemen to bend and twist enough to stop him.
A good game to try Matthew Slater as a kick returner.
I think that this along with Moss and Welker's injuries are just God's way of telling the Pats they need to run the ball.
just when you think the pats willrun the ball..you will see them come out in a shotgun 3WR set
I'd welcome a nice messy slug it out kind of game. Take off the gloves and throw away some of the fancy stuff. That and a slug in the mouth from the Jets last week might be just what this team needs to get it's soul back, and stop being a soft finesse team.
The last time we played in horrible weather conditions, we destroyed the future NFC Super Bowl representative.
If he is, I hope he's not checking the forecasts, because today is a beautiful sunny day here and no visible indication yet of rain to come.
But...uh...it doesnt have to be raining NOW for Turner to know....uh....yeah...I didnt know that.
The way some people on this site were acting I assumed it was already terrible weather up there. Its crap here. You have people trying to sell their tickets for less than face value and stuff because they are scared to get a little wet at a football game...I figured it must be like a typhoon at this moment.
ONE person who has a 12yr old daughter he doesn't want to subject to a football game in a rain storm.
That's it.....one ticket holder.We fill the stadium during blizzards for God's sake.
It's supposed to start about noon time......getting heavy about 3 pm.....with possible thunder storms.Winds 10 to 20mph.The field in Foxbourough drains quite well.
Moss will play,imo...........Welker,probably not.If pats win the toss,I expect them to defer,because of the weather.
All I can say is when I read it an saw someone selling with the whole reason being the weather (in September) I figured you guys must have been prepping to build the Ark. As you said, your fans are supposed to be acclimated to December northeastern weather.
Plus, we have gotten more rain here in the last 1.5 weeks than in the last year combined probably. We had many people get their homes flooded out in a matter of minutes on Sunday night. Peoples houses literally under water. As I type at this moment I can hear the water being dumped. Its bad. Flash flood warning again. When its on your doorstep, and people are saying it will be bad up there too, its hard to imagine a bright sunshining day.
THE RUNNING GAME
If not now, when?
i wish i cloud watch the game but in CT fox is in love with the G man and all ways play them
i dont get it this is new england why i cant see my team
Because CT is a suburb of NY.
Sucks, going to be the only game I go to this year and the weather is going to suck...
