Passing Game Offense in Sub-Zero Weather

I expect a shootout. Our defense won't do s**t because of that fact.

Don't worry, we're going to activate Marcus Cooper...oh...wait.

He did a lot for the Chiefs today.

Glad we kept the right rookie CB (D. Morris)...

I liked both of them, makes me think the 9ers are good at eyeing good late round Dbs, Brock, Morris and Cooper

Wish that were true for our WR picks. Although, I do like Patton...

They seem to do good with late picks period. Getting good productivity out of them.

Tundra is just grasslands in the arctic (or antarctic). It is often frozen but is not frozen in the summer

True, but tundra is not relegated to the Arctic or Antarctic.
I think we should be fine. The Packers don't match up against us well. They do have a running game now, but I think they do not want to take it out of Rodgers hands. The more they pass, the more it plays into our hands.
It's either gonna be a slug fest, or another shoot-out.
There wont be "any" big game in the air...Packers or Niners. The ball is so unpredictable in this weather and it literally hurts like hell when it hits your hands, so expect lots of drops. This game will come down to who runs better and who doesnt turn the ball over. (Im assuming its the Niners)

Don't discount our line or running backs. They are a far better run blocking unit than pass blocking.

Ice and snow favors the passing game I agree, but it will not be icy or snowy.

It is pretty much just frigid cold, which IMO favors the defense.

The field will be frozen hard ('frozen tundra') = icy = poor footing = usually favors offense if poor footing.
Heard there is heater pipes 10" below ground
The field is in horrible shape, there is literally no grass left so they will be playing in semi heated grass like mud substance so footing is going to be poor. I think that will affect the passing game a bit more than the temperature. Run run run all day long.
Im telling you guys, the heated field will be more of a problem than a help in tomorrows game. The moisture rising from the heated field will do nothing but make the players colder in this weather. It will literally freeze in 5-10 seconds as it rises. The heated field will be a major problem tomorrow.
One of the analysts noted that the coils under the field failed last time out and the field was like a brick...or skating rink.

Probably, but still smarter in everything than someone posting from his room. Well, maybe not video games, porn and texting desperate people who have few options in life.

Like back in the 60s? They've been replaced two or three times since then, haven't heard of any failures in the modern era.
