    Re: Brutal NE Weather Could Cause Another Post Season Disaster for Pats

    Reminds me of last year when the Pats thrashed the Jets in the regular season and everyone thought they would smash them in the playoffs too.

    Although Brady has had some good games in the past throwing the ball in cold, generally, no.

    His team was eliminated in cold weather his last two playoff games at home. And Denver's stength is defense.

    If this game were in a dome I think the Pats would win by 20. But winning that bye and getting home field in cold weather may not help them. Especially since this is a night game.

    If Denver wins this would really get the Ravens pumped up even more to beat Texans, it would just mean beating Denver at M+T and the next stop would be Indianapolis.

    Maybe the NFL will come up with another new QB rule for Tom Brady this year.. i.e....the tuck rule during the snowy playoff game against the Raiders

    Tom Brady has won AFC Championship games in blinding snow storms. I wouldn't get my hopes up

    would be sooooo awesome. Ravens did it. Jets did it. Maybe Broncos can do it too. All the pressure is on the Pats to win a playoff game since it's been 3 years.

    We recently benefited from a tuck rule call this year.

    I don't see this hurting the Patriots too much, much of their passing is short and intermediate. If they were depending on throwing deep it might hurt some.

    The temp will be around 20 during the game and the winds look to be in the 12-15 MPH range.

    It does help the Broncos but not that much. If they can run the ball and get to Brady they can win.

    even though I was rooting for the Pats back then, although not a fan and never could be now, I thought it was a bogus call and should have been a fumble.

    Maybe the 35 year old Brady can't adjust to extremely cold weather, as well as the 25 year old Brady did. He didn't light up the Jets or Ravens in his last two playoff games.

    Bilichick has lost some of his magic too.

    I can't see Brady losing to the Denver Tebows, but I also didn't see it happened to the Steelers. We will see.

    It's the very opposite, the Patriots love snow games

    boston.com tells me
    The Patriots improved to 11-0 in snow games at home in Foxborough

    It isn't going to snow, however, it will be cold and breezy.

    The key to beating Brees/Brady/Rodgers is pressure up front. Disrupt their ability to pass from the start of the play. If Denver can dial up Miller and Dumervil and co. and get to Brady, and Tebow works his magic, Denver can win this thing, especially since they officially have an overall winning record now.
    That's a stretch. Denver was 8-8. If you are going to go that route, then the Patriots beat a winning team in 9-8 denver a month ago. They also beat a winning teams in Oakland (2-1 at the time) & New York Jets (5-3) if you want to look at the records at the time of the game. Can Denver win? Sure, but I'm not holding my breath. If it snows, the tuck rule gods will be with the pretty boy in the Uggs.

    Anyone who think the Broncos cant win this game, or have no chance, is flat out foolish.

    Exactly.

    While normally this would be a concern for a high flying passing attack, the Patriots don't throw the ball downfield much and rely on the short to intermediate passing game. The wind factor will be of little concern.

    It will affect the kickers more than Brady.

    Re: Brutal NE Weather Could Cause Another Post Season Disaster for Pats

    Well whether it was the cold weather, good defense, or something else, Brady did not perform very well in his last two playoff games against the Ravens at home and against the Jets at home last year. The Denver defense isn't an elite one, too inconsistent. but maybe with the weather and Brady and Bilichick's recent playoff failures, they can hold the Patriots down.

    The New England team is somewhat one dimensional and if Brady's passing attack is not hitting on all cylinders then the Patriots defense and running game cannot be counted on to pick up the slack. The Patriots have one of the worst defenses in the league and the Broncos have a good running attack.
