Effects of weather at Meadowlands

How will the snow and mixed rain affect the game this weekend? My main concern is the passing game, with Collins throwing in this kind of conditions it worries me. I hope there is no wind.

Re: Effects of weather at Meadowlands

Sunday's forecast from The Weather Channel doesn't make things look good:

Wintry Mix to Rain
High: 40, Low: 23
Wind: ENE at 20 mph

That wind forecast is during the day. I'd imagine once 8:15pm rolls around, that wind is going to pick up more. However, the precip might be gone by then...

It's not gonna be pretty. We absolutely CANNOT settle for FGs in this one. The swirling winds are gonna make kicking conditions miserable. Eeesh.

I don't think either team should be confident in the passing game if conditions bear out. Collins doesn't have the arm strength to throw the ball through a window, and Manning has a tendancy to let it sail.

Re: Effects of weather at Meadowlands

Too bad our line is so messed up...otherwise, this kind of weather would play right into our hands. I wouldn't be suprised to see 15 Betts carries and Portis with 10 for this game...especially since Betts practices with Collins all the time and because he is a north south runner

Re: Effects of weather at Meadowlands

Wind is always a big factor in the Meadowlands. Our O-line better be ready to run block better than they have the past month.

The wind at Giants Stadium is not what it used to be. The stadium used to be somewhat open at the endzones. Not open in the sense of a converted baseball stadium, but behind the seats and concourses. However, they recently closed it off, and the wind has been cut down tremendously. A friend has season tickets in section 125, which is in the lower corners and years ago, he used to get a bitter cold draft behind him. Doesnt happen anymore. Not sure my post makes sense if you are reading it in English, sorry for that.

Re: Effects of weather at Meadowlands

This is a totally random thought but: could a team use a snow machine and a really big fan to prepare their players for inclimate weather (the same way you might dunk footballs in water during practice)?

I think it might be helpful, especially for kickers!
