    Reliant is a retractable roof but that doesnt mean anything.

    Hurricane Rita was a Cat 3 and parts of the roof fell to the field.

    This has been the story all day. The team is going to have a presser later this afternoon. The sports station I listen to here is going to carry it live.
    I'm sorry it's mentioned here as well.

    yeah was just thinking that if it is just a glancing blow, a roof would keep the stadium from flooding maybe...if there is that much rain. I just looked at the weather and it says Ike is running just to the left of Houston which is the worst case scenario. If they evacuate the city, this game might be played sometime in December like after the 9-11 cancellations??? No?

    Quite possible. If it gets stronger (like a Cat 4), this place will be shut down for weeks.

    There is a Noon presser (CST) so we shall learn more then.

    One rumor ciruclating is that the game could be moved to Dallas on Sunday as the Cowboys don't play till Monday night.
    Pffffff! I trust wikipedia more than the NFL. If anyone would know football, it is clearly wikipedia.

    This is not an option, they cannot play the game the week after the regular season, because the playoffs begin that week. They will decide today whether they should move it to Monday night in Houston, or if they will play it elsewhere. Either way they will do everything possible to complete this game at the latest Monday night.

    Any chance the game could be played in Baltimore? Any precedence for this?

    The storms will be done by late Saturday. It's all going to come down to how flooded the city is.

    Unfortunately for the fans of Houston the NFL cannot play a wait and see game. The decision needs to be made today, and my belief is that this game will be played in Atlanta. The NFL has already made CBS aware that they should not travel to Houston, I just heard that on ESPN 1300 in Baltimore.

    That's just silly.

    The NFL was faced many hurricanes and never (sans Katrina) moved a game so far away.

    I agree, but I don't know that they will be able to play this game in Houston anytime soon, so they may not have a choice.

    Why don't they just move it to New Orleans, The Saints are @ Raljon this Sunday so the Super Dome is open. The storm is not supposed to impact New Orleans the way it's supposed to in Houston & this makes more sense than moving the game to Atlanta. Just a thought.

    Wow, the National Weather Service is taking this REALLY seriously. This is a quote from them:

    Maximum water levels forecast:

    Shoreline of Matagorda and Galveston bays... 15 to 20 feet

    Gulf-facing coastal areas from Matagorda to High Island including
    Galveston Island... 12 to 16 feet

    Life threatening inundation likely!

    All neighborhoods... and possibly entire coastal communities...
    will be inundated during high tide. Persons not heeding evacuation
    orders in single family one or two story homes will face certain
    death. Many residences of average construction directly on the
    coast will be destroyed. Widespread and devastating personal
    property damage is likely elsewhere. Vehicles left behind will
    likely be swept away. Numerous roads will be swamped... some may be
    washed away by the water. Entire flood prone coastal communities
    will be cutoff. Water levels may exceed 9 feet for more than a
    mile inland. Coastal residents in multi-story facilities risk
    being cutoff. Conditions will be worsened by battering waves. Such
    waves will exacerbate property damage... with massive destruction
    of homes... including those of block construction. Damage from
    beach erosion could take years to repair.


    Never have I heard them say "certain death". Sheesh!

    If they move it to a neutral site, I suppose that would eliminate or severely hurt the Texans' homefield advantage - advantage Flacco.

    This also means Flacco's first "real" road test would be in Pittsburgh on Monday night.
