Football In The Rain

Here are a few facts about games played in poor weather conditions:

The surface will be slower if a game is played in wet conditions. When the surface footing gets sloppy the game becomes a battle of attrition and the game will be won or lost in the trenches, which is on the line.

When it is a wet day the power game that takes place in between the tackles is more important because it is very hard to sweep block. It is also hard for the QB throw a tight spiral in wet conditions, as it is harder to get a good grip on the ball.

Conditions that are wet or snowy will actually help the offense rather then the defense more then muddy conditions. It can be hard to make changes in directions in muddy conditions, which means the offensive team does not have the edge.

A WR is aware of their routes and the defense has to react and on wet surfaces this gives the offensive team the advantage. The same thing goes for the offensive lines, as they have to be aware of the snap count while the defensive line has to react when the ball is snapped. The D-line does not have the same leverage in rushing places because of the poor surface.

We will most likely see a high-scoring affair tomorrow.

I live an hour west of the stadium, so far there has been no rain here

its not likely that it will be an extremely sloppy game as they are not calling for significant amounts of rain, and its not due to start until very late tonight or early tomorrow morning.

regardless, I will be there screaming my head off rain or shine....GO FALCONS!!!!!!
