    Anyone else worried about our rookies and the imminent cold weather that is coming?

    Spikes, Cunningham, Hernandez all played in warm weather for their entire college career.. Is there any chance they can stumble a little bit cause of the cold weather over the next 2 months?

    Do you guys stay up late at night to think up all these things to worry about? Or does worrying about every minor little thing something that comes natural?

    I think that they will get used to it in practice!

    If they were playing for Miami, and they went and played in the cold weather, they will get used to it!

    beat me to it.


    I think it is the rapid change of weather that can be a bigger factor when teams travel from warm to cold. Your bodies just dont acclimate the same as gradually going from summer to winter. But even still I dont find that to be that much of a big deal.

    The rookies and any vets that may need it will be able to practice in it plenty.

    Here's something solid to worry about, too.


    :gossip: Aaron Hernandez has his arms sleeved. Well, those run at around $1K/$2K to get. Since he was a college football player, how was he able to afford these tats? He was probably getting money from an agent...:eek: I hope he doesn't get suspended!!!! It will probably be the week of the Jets game, because of that bastard Goodell!! :mad:

    Not really an issue. These guys practice in cold NE weather all the time, they are acclimated. It is coming from Miami, Jax or SD to NE and such that is the killer because your body doesn't have enough time to get used to it and you are used to balmy weather.

    Like Calcium said, I think they'll get used to it in practice pretty quickly. They have to live here so they're going to adjust faster than a warm weather team coming in for one game.
