Managed to get tickets to Packers/49ers yesterday! It's about an 8 hour drive and the hotel ended up way more than the tickets, but totally worth it. Go Pack Go!!

Congrats, but projected gametime temps in the single digits plus a decent wind. Fuck...that. I attended a winter game at Soldier Field (breezy, flurries, temps in the low 20s) 30 years ago and I will never, ever do that again.

Have fun, but stay warm!

I wouldn't want to either, but the worst is mid-30s in a driving rain. I did that at FedEx in the upper deck in Week 17 in 2005 and it sucked. I'd take 10-15 degrees with no precip over 30s and rain.

Wonder if he'll be on a 'pitch count.' But should really help for their play-action at least.

Absolutely. I went to an [email protected] Monday night game years ago and it was just barely warm enough to be rain instead of snow. It was much more miserable than for instance the [email protected] playoff game in January 2014 which by the end of overtime (about 8 pm GB time) it was below 0 without the wind chill. By the time I got home late that night in Minnesota it was 23 degrees below zero.

If Green Bay wins I'll be at the NFC Championship game next weekend which as of now is forecast to be in the mid 20s...practically spring!

Congrats! You will never forget the experience, win or lose. Oh, if they lose you may try to forget...but you won't be able to!

Maybe they’ll restrict him to 35 touches?

At the risk of derailing this thread, Derrick Henry has no bearing on the Titans play action game. It's all dictated by formation and the sort of personnel on the field.

My first and only NFL game I've attended was a Bills game in 1993... at the time it was the coldest game in Bills history (9 degrees F... -28 with windchill).
The record was broken and it's now considered their 2nd coldest game:

The Top 10 Coldest games in Bills history

It was fucking freezing... it's a shithole of a stadium... the washrooms had disgusting pissing troughs... and the Bills won the game. Not a good time.

Re: NFL 2022 Divisional Round Thread

Lol... Titans are worried about Bengal fans showing up en masse to Saturday's game.... so much that they've monkeyed-around with the ticket transfer rules.

I know the Predators do this regularly to try to restrict Blackhawk fans - which is odd considering that there really aren't any traveling Blackhawk fans unless Chicago is doing well - but I never expected the top-seeded super Titans to have to worry about a bunch of playoff rookies filling their stadium with orange and black stripes. Its not like we've got a bandwagon or something (oh, wait). Lol. But, whatever...

Linky: https://www.usatoday.com/story/sport...ets/6590045001
Cincinnati Bengals fans are probably going to travel pretty well to the team’s divisional-round playoff game against the Tennessee Titans. It is, after all, a pretty manageable road trip and the team just overcame a 31-year playoff drought. And the Titans want to make sure Bengals fans can’t swarm the stadium on Saturday. So much so, the Titans have changed their ticket transfer policy just in time for the game.

Brooke Ellenberger, Vice President of Ticketing for the Titans, explained why the rules are getting changed, per Chris Davis of News Channel 5: “We want Nissan Stadium to be two tone blue. And so by limiting this transfer window, it also limits the number of visiting team fans that we’ll have in the stadium. By limiting that transfer time would limit some of the resale and some of that transfer activity that would happen in advance.”

Under the new rules, tickets can’t be transferred to someone else until 24 hours before kickoff.

NFL will stop daily testing of unvaxxed players and test only if they have symptoms. Cue cries of “NFL admits vax is useless, and we unvaxxed stood up to them and won!” and “NFL didn’t dare lose Aaron Rodgers on the eve of the Super Bowl.” I wouldn’t rule out the latter myself.

The only NFL game I ever attended was at ASU Sun Devil stadium in AZ against the Redskins and it was like 100+ degrees. Way too hot to sit in the sun.

I had the pleasure of attending Wimbledon for two days in 2015. We had Court One tickets on both days. On the first day, we had terrific seats, just offset from mid-court and (IIRC) in the eighth row. It just happened to be the hottest single day in Wimbledon history, with temps peaking about 96F. As cool as the experience was, it also kind of sucked because we were in full sun all day. The second day our seats were not nearly as good, but we were far enough back that we were in the shade of the overhang for most of the afternoon. Much better.

Rodgers would be the most conspicuous example, but even if the Bills lost Cole Beasley in the Superbowl due to a Covid test it would be a pretty huge story.

Re: NFL 2022 Divisional Round Thread

I expect the Titans will do better, but their first four plays have been pretty rough.

Tannehill INT, Henry 2 yard gain, Henry 2 yard loss, Tannehill 7 yard sack, punt.

Not that the Bengals are doing much better, but at least they got a first down and a FG after that INT. Titans QB rush is formidable. Looks like a defensive struggle may be unfolding... Anyone take the under?

Yeah, I remember some scorchers at the Rogers Cup, Montreal can get pretty damn hot and humid in August. I'm almost always lucky enough to get free private box tickets, but while you get a great view, the closer to the ground/court you are, the hotter it gets because of the "bowl" design of these show courts. These are definiteky "bring your own water/ice packs/sun block/hat" days.

Yeah SDS was the worst place to watch NFL games. I have been to a few that were over 100 degrees. The absolute worst.

Losing Cole Beasley or Harrison Butker wouldn't really move the needle (or the line) at all. But losing Aaron Rodgers and starting Jordan Love in a Super Bowl? That would be a nightmare. Make no mistake, that's why this rule was changed.

Wait. You're saying the NFL changed the rules to benefit a star player, a popular franchise, and their bottom line?

I'm shocked!

No surprise there hasn’t been any comments for the Bengals and Titans game. This has been a mostly defensive battle.

Re: NFL 2022 Divisional Round Thread

This is one of the worst offensive line performances I've ever seen in the playoffs. How did the Bengals make the playoffs with this offensive line? It's putrid and Burrow is running for his life.

Henry does not look like his old self. He's playing hurt and nowhere near 100%.
