    Pats should start increasing their fluid intake to ensure they are properly hydrated for the SB. The weather in Arizona could be 40-50 degrees warmer than what they have played in the last month, Muscle cramps could be a problem. Willie Mac used to be the Hydration King of the Pats I think the crown has been passed to Rodney.

    good post. i think they should be on top of that, heck even from going to drastically cold to warm can get a guy a little sick, and flu like symptoms seem to be rampant in the NFL this time of year as is. this will be a much needed 2 week layoff from actual game-time.

    #3 Jersey

    Somehow, after watching SB 39, I don't think that point's going to be lost on the Pats. :)

    Probably right, but it's hard to keep properly hydrated when it's cold and you're not thirsty. Witness the DB for GB last night. -4 and he was cramping.

    I'd have to say the Pats have better depth now versus that last Superbowl.

    The secondary has Gay, Merriweather, and the lost man Wilson.

    Keeping the front 7 will be crucial in stopping the run, but I think the offense will help them by having long drives.

    I'm pretty sure that the training staff is aware of the situation. They've been through this before. I wouldn't worry too much.

    Just in case, maybe we should write them a letter. :cool:

    It should be 70 degrees and played indoors, I imagine.

    The weather here right now is cold for Arizona -- 30 in the mornings and 60 to 65 in the day.

    You'd have thought the same thing about the Eagles but their players were cramping up badly in SB39.

    That's true. Severe cold can dehydrate you pretty bad if you are very physically active, and it sneaks up on you because you're not sweating as much. Ultra cold air is dry as a bone, and water evaporates out of your breath and skin like crazy.
