    Forecast for Sunday at Foxboro

    Here's the forecast for the game. Anyone think the weather has anything to do with how we play?

    Sunday
    Cloudy with a chance of sleet...snow...or rain. Breezy. Lows in the mid 20s and highs in the upper 30s.

    Opinions?

    If we lose, weather is not an excuse.

    I just somehow always associate our late season collapses with places that are cold and/or snowy - thanks to the schedule makers, it seems we always have the same schedule at the end of the season - on the road and in cold, snowy places.

    This is the fourth straight year the game at New England has been in December.....and I think also the fourth straight year the game at Buffalo has been in December.....although a couple of those may have been late November games. Anyways, the Dolphins are 3-3 in those games. Let's go for 2-0 this year!!

    I believe the weather will help Miami and hurt NE. One team runs the ball well and the other does not. It doesn't matter what NE did the first game to control Ricky they will not do it this time. And Brady will throw at least 2 picks. If we do not make mistakes we beat them. We should have beat them the first time. But should of could of would is always the story.

    Last year was an abberation. If Ricky gains over 150 again the Fins win.

    Ricky may love the snow, but our DBs can't handle it. That's the main reason Buffalo won the second game last season, (even though Ricky had over 200yds), because their WRs are more accustomed to playing in snow than our DBs, and it gave them a huge edge.

    Once again I pose the question. Can't the Dolphins find somewhere to practice at least part of the time in cold/snowy weather? Is that unrealistic?

    This will be the most hyped subject this week. I live in New England and can honestly tell you guys you really just have to wait and see what Sunday brings. Those freakin weathermen will start predicting snow anytime there is any moisture in the area from now until March. They will be wrong about 85% of the time. Oh I believe it will be cold, heck it is cold out right now (26 degrees on my way to work today) but I seriously doubt it will snow and if it does I doubt it will accumulate. We usually get most of our snow in late January, February (28 days I could do without living up here) and March. It's all hype it probably won't snow.

    If he were mine (well, I would have been 8 when he was born...), he would be on a year of restrictions.

    Re: Forecast for Sunday at Foxboro


    Perfect weather for Miami to destroy the cold weather bullsh*t

    Let's not forget Miami had an 11 point lead against the Patriots last year in Foxboro and just let it go.. Had nothing to do with the weather.. Miami felt they had the game done with..

    3 years ago Miami beat the Patriots in Foxboro

    2 years ago Miami lost another 4th quarter lead in Foxboro and lost the game..

    The Cold Weather myth makes it sound like Miami gets blown out in the cold.. WRONG

    The Pats will be in shirtsleves. It's soo freakin' cold up here right now that I am considering moving to the sunshine state! By the time next weekend rolls around if the temps are in the 30's, you'll see a lot of bare arms and sun screen on the Pats!:D

    Seems the NFL has a sick sence of humor sending the Northern teams south in the fall and the Southern teams north in the winter! I could never figure that one out!

    I live here too. It will be cold but I doubt it will snow. The weathermen will forecast snow every time their is a possiblity of moisture from now until March and they will be WRONG a lot. That's just the way it is up here. We get most of our snow in January - March.

    Being too cold is the worst excuse in the world.

    If anything snow could only help us. The Patriots can't run.

    Stick with the subject. We're talking about the fins@ NE and weather. :rolleyes:

    A qb (I foget who) said that it's hardler to play in the cold than it is in heat. Cold just zaps out the energy out of you.

    It seems the quick-hitting passes NE relies on (e.g., WR screens) could be more difficult in cold, wet conditions.

    Guys I think the weather is given way too much credit in games like this. The reality is both teams deal with the same conditions. Both teams have guys that prefer warm weather and both have guys that prefer cold weather. The weather is not going to give 1 team an advantage over another team.

    come on people saying that snow and cold effects the Fins more than the Dolphins is just plain stupid. How many games have the Pats played in the snow this year... NONE. How many games have they played where the weather conditions were extreme... NONE. Snow certainly helps a running team but the temperature doesn't hurt or help either team. I live in Boston and will be at the game. Right now the forcast is improving... temps 32-37 with partial sunshine for Sunday (of course it will be dark by 4:30)

    I don't know. Here's Dave's comments, which directly contradict what he said on his show Sunday.

    (On much more confidence he has in the offense with the way they’ve played over the last five quarters) – “I think you constantly believe in your heart that until it translates onto the field, it’s more what you feel and what you’re saying as compared to what’s actually happening. Doing it the last week or two, it should reaffirm in everybody’s mind what we’re capable of doing. It’s not going to get any easier. We know that. This defense (New England), in its own way, is every bit as difficult as the defense we faced last week. We’re going to go up there and play in the elements. This part of the season takes on kind of a new life of its own, when the weather and the wind and all of those things become factors. We’re a confident team right now, but we have a lot of respect for these guys. We know that they’re a heck of a football team. We’re going to have to go up there and play as good as we played last week. We can’t go in and turn the ball over. You’ve got to make plays when there are plays to be had.)

    Damn, by the time the game hits, it might be 85 degrees, with about 90% humidity, and palm trees swaying in the wind.

    ;)

    I think it will be fine weather wise, it's the actual game that scares the poop out of me.

    I've said it 3,000 times already. I live in New England and the weathermen will be predicting snow about as often as they predict T-Storms in South Florida. They will be wrong a lot more times than they will be right. That's just the way it is and always has been here. You don't know until you wake up that morning.

    First of all, here's the Foxboro forecast for Sunday, from the weather channel:
    Second, snow shouldn't be as much as a factor on the field as people are making it out to be. There is a state of the art heating system under the field that is supposed to prevent ice and snow from accumulating. Plus I don't think Ricky is going to have a better time running the ball this time around. The first game we were missing Teddy Washington, Teddy Johnson, Willie McGinest, Mike Vrabel and Ty Law. So I think the Pats will aim to stop Ricky, and take their chances with Fiedler and some poor (wind) conditions. Obviously the condtions will effect Brady and Co. too.

    Upated Sunday Forecast

    Latest report on the local TV stations are calling for 10"-15" of snow on the ground for the Foxboro area by Sunday afternoon. When are the Fins flying up? If they fly into Providence or Boston, they can expect long delays and an exciting landing during a the next best thing to a blizzard:)

    Game day, snow tapers off in the am, with snow showers in the afternoon with no additional accumulation expected. Windy conditions (up to 30mph) and temps around 28 by kickoff. That should bring the wind chill down to the zero mark.

    Hmmm, maybe I should sell my tix? Nah, break out the snowmobile gear:) The snow is going to be the light variety (less water content), so it will be blowing around like crazy. Thank god for my firepit - gonna load that baby up and have a bonfire in Foxboro! I'll be toasted in more ways than one...as will the FIns...:) Couldn't leave that line out there, lol!
