Mara Bowl - Weather Updates

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

... it's looking like "ice pellets" are in the forecast .... still early yet, but ....


does anyone know when the call is made for a change?
The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

Weather is a fickle thing. It's about as easy to predict as the stock market. So no surprise, Monday brings a much different viewpoint for the weather during Super Bowl XLVIII than the weekend did. Now all of a sudden "mostly clear" is in play.

The Weather Channel, with less than a week remaining until the game kicks off, has SUN showing on Super Bowl Sunday and -- unlike this past Sunday -- a very minimal chance of precipitation for the game.

Even the winds are looking kind of wimpy at 5 mph.

It's unlikely the Seahawks actually care about what the weather is, although their style of play would theoretically work better in the elements, at least against the Broncos. Peyton Manning should be jumping up and down, though. This sort of forecast favors him tremendously.

Weather Underground is featuring a similar forecast. Highs of 37 for Sunday along with a low (20 percent) chance of rain or snow? The 10 mph winds are a little different from above but that's still basically nothing.

Football is an outdoor sport. Weather is part of the game.

There have been many NFL Championship games played in horrendous winter weather... It's about time the Super Bowl was played where it might have an impact...

OK - let me see ...

which QB do I want 'managing the game' no matter what the weather is, Peyton Manning or Russell Wilson?

that's a really hard choice :lol:

no matter what the weather is on Sunday, which QB is going to be able to make the right call at the line of scrimmage, Peyton Manning or Russell Wilson?

that's another really hard choice :lol:

If one team is trailing in the 4th quarter, which QB has the best chance of taking the offense down the field, Peyton Manning or Russell Wilson?

hmmm, let me think about that for a while ... :lol:

Would have said the same thing about shEli Manning and Tom Brady in 2008. You never know how the game is going to play out. :idea:

Patriots v Giants - another example of the better team losing - it happens

the Seahawks could win the game but they are not 'better' than the Broncos - If the Seahawks were the better team they would be 'favored' :lol:

most every analyst is looking for ways that the Seahawks could 'upset' the Broncos - almost nobody thinks the Seahawks win this game if they both play well

the weather is looked at and 'analyzed' from the aspect of how does it hurt the Broncos and help the Seahawks - why not the other way around? :lol:

that's interesting - explain how "it could not be more untrue" for the better team not to be 'favored' to win the game

Because betting lines have nothing to do with who the better team is. They are set to get even money wagered on both sides. That way, the house always wins.

I'll agree that the betting lines have nothing to do with which team is better but I do not agree with the statement that my post "could not be more untrue" - that's just typical BS from you ... it might not be the case, but to overstate the point with the words "more untrue" is so 'over-the-top' typical of you trying to make a point :roll:

and

if you think the majority of NFL fans (outside the bookies) really believe that the Seahawks are a better team than the Broncos, you are wrong :lol:

If you know anything about logic or math, then you would know that true/untrue(false) are boolean values. Either 1 or 0, yes or no, true or untrue. So no, it could not be more untrue.
