    Personally i hate that dome and i can't help but feel that the advantage goes to the Giants for this game when it comes to the field. Especially their passrush which will obviously be our biggest concern.

    No Jersey Selected

    :confused:

    Gillette, MetLife, and Lucas Oil all use FieldTurf.

    Hmm..ok. Call me ignorant.

    Well my point was that...Lucas Oil to me seems to be a faster field if you understand what i'm saying. And one that fits a D with great passrushers like the Colts and Giants. Does it come down to the conditions then? Indoors vs cold weather?

    That's both of them. Could be a shootout.

    It's not the turf so much but the dome. The team with more/louder fans, which will be the Giants by a wide margin. The Giants fans will travel better and 90% of the casual fans will be for the Giants.

    I think the advantage goes to the Patriots. They've actually played on that field. Has the giants?

    The Pats are familiar with Indy but I am sure that Eli's brother will fill him in so it won't be much of an advantage.

    The Giants have hit their stride at the right time. This game will be close and our D once more needs to come up big. Their D Line is super nasty.

    The Giants never shut up about their pass rush but the 49ers were far scarier in that regard. They hit Eli 20 times yesterday. Obviously the Giants pose a huge threat, but Justin Smith barreling down the middle of the line is much worse than whatever the hell that "Nascar" package is.

    Seriously guys, the field favors a pass rushing team like NYG? Next you will say the air favors a NFC team, have some confidence.

    Based on the crowd at San Fran, I would agree that NY will travel better. I heard "CRUUUUUZZZZZ" after every reception he made. It was weird. It really sounded like the Giants were the home team.
