    I honestly don’t buy into the weather factor that much. Seen way too many warm teams come into Pittsburgh where my old man says they aren’t going to like this weather!!! And we lose.

    That gives me visions of that game against the bears swirling snow and the Bus mudding it up and run guys over. Bring on the snow.

    This helps the Jags more than hurts them. Their offense is much less dynamic than ours so it really levels the playing field offensively if weather really limits play calling and they have a better defense.

    You have a fair point however go back and look at Bortles throw in the win last week..........the worse the weather the worse Bortles will play and he is pretty bad in good weather. :applaud:

    Not sure snowy weather benefits us. Jags cant keep up offensively but bad weather could aid their already great DB's and put a few scores on the board defensively.

    Adrenaline will overcome weather for both teams. Besides, for a football player 20 isn't cold. They will still build up a sweat. I used to sweat like crazy when I skied at 20 degrees.

    Cold doesnt really become a factor until its like Giants/Packers cold. Thought Coughlins face was going chip and break apart.


    Sorry about Molly, always brutal.

    I kind of laugh. People think that certain teams play better in the cold.

    I bet 65% of the players in the NFL come from Florida, Texas, and California.

    Not like they are used to the cold. Not like these guys were born and raised in the Pittsburgh cold.

    I see both sides of it. The difference is the players in Pittsburgh have been living in it. Brett Hundley said earlier this year that his first game in the cold was brutal. The ball was harder than he was used to and had to put extra on it when throwing it.

    I have heard a lot of former players who are now on tv say the snow benefits the offense. The reason being a wr knows when they are cutting and are kind of prepared where as the CB don't and this is where your slip happens. I can where that makes sense and that would be an advantage us imo.

    Just gotta put some punishing hits on him early like we did with Ajayi and last game will seem a distant memory. You only start to feel the cold when you are getting pounded and losing,that's when the offseason becomes your idea of a good time.....

    Yes and thats true but Im talking about high passes or balls that go through WR's hands and into DB's hands. Jax already has a great secondary, they don't need help.

    exactly...as a former db, we were told the same thing. Had to counter by keeping your weight centered over your feet and using choppy steps when breaking on the ball/receiver.

    I'm sure players will go out pregame, get a feel for the field and then change their cleats as needed too.
