I'll be in a warm bar with hot food, cold beer and 300 Steelers brethren waving Terrible Towels chanting, "Here we go, Steelers, Here we Go!"

And every once in a while someone will break out in "I gotta feeling.......Pittsburgh's goin' to the Superbowl!". Gotta love it! :tt03:

I think if you are a player, with all that gear on, the adrenalin flowing, on the field 1/2 the time, that doesn't seem that cold. As long as the wind stays down. It's not like it is -13 or anything.

Point being - that isn't that frigid. These are professional football players - wearing 30 pounds of gear. Most would rather it be cold than hot. I'm getting ready (as in tomorrow) to go skiing where the temps will be in the single digits. As long as you're moving and dressed, 20's are nothing.

Yep. That ball becomes hard as a rock. Slippery to hold on too. Also, giving hits and receiving hits takes on a whole different element. When you are that cold and you are DOING the hitting, it isn't much different. But when you GET hit, and it is your body impacting the ground first, WOW does it hurt. Even more so because your body is cold and is tensed up more.

Winter of my senior year of High School, we had a cold snap.... idiot hockey coach still made us practice in the "outside" rink (it was a rink surrounded by concrete walls and a metal roof). It was 20 below plus windchill. . . and we skated AND STILL HAD CHECKING DRILLS.

Let me tell you, the cold MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

Point being - It's not the air temp - it's the frozen field condition that's important in this game.

The slick, icy, snowy muddy cow pasture will slow down Sproles and have him fumbling that hard rock when he gets blasted by 5 tacklers every run, that's what he'll be dealing with.

It's going to be 20 degrees - some but not a lot of wind - heaters on the bench - I believe even the balls are warmed. This doesn't sound like lake hockey at 20 below. 20 degrees isn't frigid.

Tell that to Tony Homo and the Cowboys. I just hope Rivers actually dresses like it's cold out there. For the life of me I'll never understand why little Tony felt he had to play Superman and come out with no sleeves or gloves and had his hand warmer turned around. That's one of the factors that cost them the game I'm sure of it.

On that note, I've noticed Ben actually plays better in inclement weather, he takes care of the football better and makes far less mistakes, his opponents however do not.

SD game - cold and snowing - No picks and 308 yards passing (Rivers 2 picks, 164 yards, 0 TDs)
NE game - cold and freezing rain - 1 pick and 179 yards with 2 TDs (Cassel 2 picks, 169 yards and 0 TD, not to mention something like 3 FFs)
Cincy game - cold and snowy - No picks and 243 yards with 1 TD (It's Cincy lol, they did horrible)
Dallas game - 7 degrees and windy - No picks and 204 yards with 1 TD (Romo 3 picks, 210 yards, 1 TD)

You are failing to count windchill.

I guess you have never been to Heinz Field? When the wind comes off those rivers and sweeps into the stadium... WOW. I saw three flags literally blowing in 3 different directions at the same time, and it was ALL COLD.

Now, the Chargers may be able to handle it. But there is NO discounting how fridged 0 degrees is.

(Btw, that wasn't pond hockey, it was indoors on a rink. . . you think THAT was cold, the heaters in the locker rooms didn't work, and it was just a cement wall between you and the outdoors... NO ONE took showers that week!)

As Killer so correctly stated above, the field is going to be frozen and with the rain we've had and the snow we're going to get, not in the best condition. The Steelers are used to playing in the HF slopyard, so I still gotta give them the advantage here.

P.S. Have a safe flight and have a lot of fun while you can. You won't be having fun come late Sunday afternoon. :chuckle:

Does this guy realize that anything under 32 degrees farenheight is below freezing?

And yes, there are heaters on the sidelines, but none on the field. After about two minutes on the field, there won't be any heat left in the players from those heaters.

And if they keep the balls warm on the sideline, they freeze quickly on the field. There is no flexability at all to them, it becomes hard as a rock. Slippery too...which means it'll be hard to catch and hard to hold on to.

And then you have the condition of the cow pasture Heinz Field is. The field will be frozen, sloppy, and mud. It won't be like playing in sunny San Diego or in a temperature controlled dome on FieldTurf. Sproles won't be doing much, and the field should neutralize Antonio Gates speed.

answering my own question here as I just looked it up.....in relation to last time the Bolts came here on Nov 16, it looks like it will be 8-10 degrees colder but slightly less windy and slightly less chance of snow. However, it's only Wednesday so weather forecasts can be way off.

Here - I'll explain it to you again.

San Diego, California in January:

The Climate of San Diego, California is predominantly a semi-arid Mediterranean climate (Köppen climate classification BSh or Csa/Csb). It enjoys mild, sunny weather throughout the year.

Average monthly temperatures range from about 57 Fahrenheit (14 °C) in January to 72 Fahrenheit (22 °C) in July, although late summer and early autumn are typically the hottest times of the year. Snow and ice are rare in the wintertime, typically occurring only inland from the coast when present. "May gray and June gloom", a local saying, refers to the way in which San Diego sometimes has trouble shaking off the fog that comes in during those months. Temperatures soar to very high readings only on rare occasions, chiefly when easterly winds bring hot, dry air from the inland deserts (these winds are called "Santa Ana winds").

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Climate_of_San_Diego,_California

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in January:

The coldest month of the year is January, when the average high temperature is 37 °F (3 °C). Overnight low temperatures average 20 °F (−7 °C).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pittsburgh,_Pennsylvania#Climate

Your boyz are used to playing in a warm, sunny climate pratically year round, including the winter months. Our boyz are used to playing in cold, overcast and sometimes snowy conditions in the winter months. What part of this are you not comprehending? :banging: Do the math kiddo.

I flew out for the last Charger game in November, that was cold enough for me. Still, if I had tickets I would love to go. Just pack on a few extra layers.

The one advantage this should give is that Sproles speed will be limited. In that kind of cold, its hard to cut and get good footing, especially for a fast runner. You need a mudder. Now, I know we don't have the Bus anymore, Moore and Davis are capeable.

NEWS FLASH... i am from Montréal Canada i know what is cold and what its not... :)

28 F is bearly freezing weather... NOT all chargers players are from california some play college in cold spot i wouldn't bank a pittsburgh vistory on the Weather at 28F... at 0F or -5F with a windchield factor of -10F i would agree but 28F with not much wind and no precepitation is a non factor :tt:

Montréal weather

The coldest month of the year is January which has a daily average temperature of −10.4 °C (13 °F) — averaging a daily low of −14.9 °C (5.2 °F), colder than either Moscow (-10 °C) or Saint Petersburg (-6 °C).[citation needed] Due to wind chill, the perceived temperature can be much lower than the actual temperature, and wind chill factor is often included in Montreal weather forecasts. The warmest month is July which has an average daily high of 26.3 °C (79.3 °F); lower nighttime temperatures make an average of 20.9 °C (69.6 °F) thus air exchangers often achieve the same result as air conditioners. The lowest temperature ever recorded was −37.8 °C (−36.0 °F) on January 15, 1957 and the highest temperature ever was 37.6 °C (99.7 °F) on August 1, 1975.[18] High humidity is common in the summer which makes the perceived temperature higher than the actual temperature. In spring and autumn, rainfall averages between 55 and 94 millimetres (2.2 and 3.7 in) a month. Some snow in spring and autumn is normal. Similarly, late heat waves as well as "Indian summers" are a regular feature of the climate.[20]

2006 was noted as the only year in the history of Montreal when there were more inches of rain than of snow.[citation needed] There were 122.3 cm (48.1 in) of snow, and there were 122.5 cm (48.2 in) of rain. That year, Montreal received more rain than Vancouver, British Columbia.[21][22]

Ever been to Heinz Field in the winter months? There is an open end of the stadium which faces the rivers and when that wind comes off of those waterways, it makes 28 degrees feel like -10. The field will be atrocious with all of the rain we've had over the last 2 days and snow forecasted in the next several days.

It's going to be 20 degrees - some but not a lot of wind - heaters on the bench - I believe even the balls are warmed. This doesn't sound like lake hockey at 20 below. 20 degrees isn't frigid.

You have no clue!!!!

When are people going to realize that the weather on Sunday will be a big time advantage for the Steelers. While no way does it mean we win, but the Bolt players will know cold weather when they leave the field on Sunday night.

What do you think about the weather on Sunday for playing on our field? We are supposed to have a lot of snow, but we shall see. I think that the Steelers do very well in inclement weather when they play at home – what do you think?:tt02:

We got a good bit of snow today and are supposed to see a good bit tomorrow too, they're only calling for a chance of flurries for Sunday though. Who knows though, there's no way you can trust the weathermen around these parts lol, we could have a full out blizzard or sunny skies and 40 degrees and I wouldn't be surprised lol.

Just don't ask Silverback that question!

But hopefully it'll give Rivers plenty of chances to make Snow Angels!

If it snows and LT isnt healthy to play the Chargers are in trouble. They are built for speed with Sproles in the backfield where as the Steelers are built to beat you up!
