They have much more experience in it and Brady has not been nullified by it previously typically.

I tend to think neither team would gain any particular advantage but if I had to pick one I would give the edge to the Pats.

I prefer to be seen as the underdogs.

I LOVE when we aren't chosen as fav, I don;t see why any one cares one way or another to be honest.

So a bunch of ex players/coaches..... news paper writer..... whatever thinks your team will lose........ it is opinion and does not decide the outcome of the game.

Even bookies get it wrong from time to time.

Their opinion means just as much as some random homeless man on a street corner for how it will turn out.

I'll take a Texans team with "something to prove" over the risk of the media inflating their egos any day.

Anyhow, here's to a good game and may the best team win.
Thanks and agreed.

The Cardinals tried to run their normal offense and had an epic fail. The Patriots know to keep everything simple and do single cuts. It also kills the pass rush.

I hope we crush the Patriots.

I'm tired of everyone on the internet talking about how dominating New England is going to be.

It is Sofa King annoying.

Do you mean sideline heaters or actual turf heaters? The only field I know of that actually has heaters below the turf is GB. The sideline heaters......that would be just add to the mystique. Teams used to say Red Auerbach turned up the heat in the summer and down in the winter for the visiting locker room. His quote was great regarding this after he retired. "It wasn't true but I never denied it because it just added to the things they had to worry about."

Turf heaters.

Quote:
Stadiums such as Safeco Field in Seattle; FedEx Field, home of the NFLís Washington Redskins; the Philadelphia Eaglesí new home, Lincoln Financial Field; and Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots, all are using turf heating systems to ensure year-round ideal playing surfaces.

My joke was because a few years ago there were comments made that Belichick had it turned off for one game because it was snowing and y'all were playing a dome team.

It must have been the Colts back in 03 or 04 because they went to field turf in the middle of the season in 06. Honestly the Colts complained about everything so after a while it all blends together. With Polian gone I don't dislike them like I used to.

While I don't believe Harris & Roc are starters, I think they're both as good or better than McCain has been all year.
