    While it is early in the week, I took a peek at what the weather might be up North. Looks like the temp. will be hovering around freezing, but the wind is what caught my attention. Ryan Tannehill has struggled some in the wind this year. However, if the wind is that nasty maybe it becomes a Front 7 game in which I think we can compete with them.

    New England will be in a nasty mood after playing like **** the last few weeks. They will be looking to get a grip going into the playoffs. However, Miami needs to come in, play their A game and step up. Throw every wrinkle and kitchen sink you have at New England. Make this the ultimate measuring stick game.

    I learned many years ago in a Meteorology class that "forecasts" are only valid for about 72 hrs.

    At this point, anything past Thursdday night is a crap shoot. Its all percentages, odds, & statistics based on prior yrs.

    Too tough to predict what the weather will look like a week out, especially the wind and precip chances. Checking more on Thurs or Fri will give you a better idea.

    So are we the "nationwide game" since we got flexed to 4 PM EST? It would be nice watching a game at home instead of the sport's bar I usually go to. Ohhhh nevermind, KC plays at Denver here in Colorado for the late game, so no way they will show the Phins-Pats here.

    I bet we get ****ing Dierdorf again...I will take Criqui or Tasker 50 times over.

    We got a chance for Simms and Nantz though.

    Simms has the wimpiest voice there is...how he got to be on the #1 broadcasting team beats me, and Nance should focus on golf....he is like watching paint dry. Criqui didn't even realize Reggie Bush caught the TD in the corner of the end zone until about two minutes went by.

    Jim Nantz is the best play caller along with Kevin Harlan.

    Lucky us living in the Mtn Time zone!?

    ---------- Post added at 02:46 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:45 PM ----------

    Disagree w/ Hayden in post 8. Al Michaels is the best play by play and Troy Aikman is the best analyst.

    10-20mph winds won't effect the dolphins. They play in those conditions a lot in miami.

    This could be a game where you run a lot more than you pass. The type of game you'd like to have a big back which we don't have. Short passes are in order which NE does best. We'll have to swing it to Bush and Miller and Fasano a lot. It's going to be hard to throw deep.

    Ozzy rules!!

    Well that should be expected this time of year in the northeast. Just saying , other than the low temp, weather shouldn't be that big of a factor. Our guys should be able to put on their big boy clothes and go out there play like they are supposed to in december.

    The first time these two teams played the wind hurt both QB's. Both Brady and Tannehill missed on some easy throws. Mix in cold temps and the passing game could be very ugly.

    I hate for the Fins the ball will be cold and seem slippery. Lots of fumbles. Yuck.

    Try 20-30 MPH winds with some gusts in the 40 MPH range.

    The passing games are greatly hurt today.

    It comes down to how "tough" do the Fins want to be today....run for the bus and into the offseason or do they try to make a statement on national TV?

    Some players are playing for contract bonuses (Wake), others are playing to have a shot of being back next year (Patterson), some are playing to gain an edge with contract negotiations or audition for jobs elsewhere next year (Bush) and then you have guys who need to keep up their development (Tannehill). I don't think any of our players are going to be playing soft.

    The worst part of the game is how slick the footballs will be IMO. Got to take care of the ball. Don't be a "soft" southern team. Show your game can go into different climates.

    I remember being a proud Fins fan when in 2008, they won in frigid KC and beat the the Jets in NY the last game of the season to win the division. That was a mental toughness in tough weather conditions.

    10 inches of snow. Gillette is on tv as people are shoveling snow out of the seats.
    game temps..windchill 17 at start and 7 by the end of game

    i am going bundle up like Michelin man mode with a bottle of jack before hitting the stadium.

    i do not understand the slippery commment , there is no precipitation so because of the cold the ball will actually be like bricks being thrown around.at this temp everything is painfull.

    Good. Give them, especially Tannehill, some experience in these conditions.

    Funny how the Miami game gets moved to 4:00 pm so it is colder and more difficult for the warm weather team, of course by 6:00pm it will be dark

    You should understand it because when it gets very cold, NFL Footballs become slick and slippery.
