The game in Green Bay Saturday night isn't going to break any cold records, but it's going to be a bit nippy.  Upper teens at kickoff. Looking breezy, so wind chill is going to make it feel like low singles.

The home field weather advantage at Lambeau seems to be of another era, so I'm not reading too much into that forecast.

The cold weather thing is overhyped in general. The players are playing, not the team name. If a team in a southern city has a number of players from Northern climates, any so-called advantage the cold weather team has is significantly reduced.

The home field weather advantage at Lambeau seems to be of another era, so I'm not reading too much into that forecast.
During the Rodgers era, here are the Packers home losses in December and January:

Texans (2008)
Giants (2011)
Steelers (2013)
49ers (2013)
Vikings (2015)
Vikings (2017)
Cardinals (2018)
Lions (2018)
Buccaneers (2020)

So, four warm/mild weather teams, two northern dome teams (the '15 Vikings played at TCF Bank Stadium), and three true cold weather teams. If the Giants count as a true cold weather team, that is; NYC's average December/January high of 42 is almost as close to San Francisco's 58 as it is Green Bay's 28.

The 49ers/Cowboys game unsurprisingly drew huge ratings. Most watched wild card game in 7 years.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

I stand by my statement that the Packers should never be the favorites in the playoffs, home or away, until they prove they can win when it matters. The last decade has been consistent failure when it counts, why should any team fear them in the postseason?

I think the largest impact of cold temperature is that the field freezes over after a while. Lambeau's grass is always half-dead by playoff time. I've never been on the surface, but I imagine the ground is harder and bumpier now than it was in September and October.

But when it comes to throwing and catching the ball, even single digit temps don't make much of an impact. It takes a good 5-10 consecutive minutes for your hands to start freezing, and QBs and receivers have several minutes to warm their hands on the sideline between possessions.

Crazy fact: the Steelers have allowed 40+ points as many times in the playoffs (3) as they have in the regular season (3) over the past five seasons!  I don't think it gets talked about enough how bad their defense has been in the playoffs... 45, 48, and 42 points (135 total!) in their last three appearances. Even more crazy when you think about all the ugly, low-scoring games they win on the strength of their defense in the regular season.

The technology of today takes away most of what cold weather teams could have had advantages on.  The jackets, handwarmers, etc are that much better. And correct me if I'm wrong but they also keep the footballs warm too so the old stories of kicking the football with it feeling like a brick and not going as far are more stories of the past. 

Honestly the only players that would more be affected would be those farther down on the depth chart that barely do anything, but if called into action then maybe it affects them as they had barely been doing much(and that's stretching a maybe).


The best way to bring frigid temps into play is get up by three scores or more and then losing team starts getting thoughts of "Why are they out here?" or "Please get this over with".......which hit's losing team regardless of where they are from. Winning is a great distraction from the weather lol

Giants hire Bills assistant GM Joe Schoen as their GM:
https://www.giants.com/news/giants-hire-joe-schoen-as-general-manager

Reaction seems to be overwhelmingly positive. And Bills OC Brian Daboll would make sense as a head coach candidate, especially if he can help develop Daniel Jones in the same way he did for Josh Allen.

Third: Bills v. Brady, and this might move to 2nd
Last: Titans vs. Rams, not because dislike either team, but I'd have no rooting interest for or against

Rams vs Bills simply because my Wife is from Firebaugh but everyone in her family are Rams fans.  Added bonus for me that Matt Stafford was the Lions Quarterback for so long.  The amount of free food and booze that would be at my disposal would be epic in scale.

Glad that the Titans are out. I donít think anyone outside of Tennessee really wanted to watch their 4-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust offense any longer. Worst 1 seed of all time?

... I do think the Titans will win, so that will be my one pick of the week.

This is why I stay away from making predictions  :-D


Glad that the Titans are out. I donít think anyone outside of Tennessee really wanted to watch their 4-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust offense any longer. Worst 1 seed of all time?

This is the type of "process over results" debate that's always interesting. They beat 7 teams that finished with a winning record, including both the Bills and Chiefs, who were their main competition for the 1 seed. They have a great coach. They managed the regular season really well despite a ton of injuries to set themselves up for the bye. I don't think they're the worst 1 seed ever... they just profile as more of a 3 or 4 seed with a QB that's solid, but not top 5.

It was also about as ugly a loss as possible... bizarre decision not to kick the extra point, which would have allowed them to run out clock at the end instead of having to get in FG range, came back from 10 points down, the defense was excellent with 9 sacks and just one TD allowed... exactly the type of game that they usually find a way to win... but then the 3rd Tannehill interception basically cost them their season.

And congrats to the Bengals, who have a stud QB and a rookie kicker that just nailed a 52 yard field goal to seal the first road playoff win in franchise history and send them to their first AFC title game since 1988!
