Default Roof will affect play....

I realize the texans are trying to use utillize thier technology, but if it rains, it will definitely affect the play on the field. If anything, we don't need vince running all over the place, with our defence slippin and sliding all over the place. Close the roof and give us a chance!

I hope not it would be a shame to see all that Titan Blue and Burnt Orange on a Battle Red Day.

If it rains, of course they are going to close the roof. That's why we have a retractable roof.

If the weather in Houston is anything like it is in Austin right now (20 degrees), then it will be a good day to leave the roof open.

Our best hope is that this game is ugly. Some cold, wet weather may make it tough on a rookie QB.

The Texans will never play a home game in the rain unless the roof breaks. No way are they going to let those trays of grass get torn up more than they already do.

They opened it during the Chargers game a couple of years ago when the power went out.

I have never seen a roof be such a big factor in play - the oven game against the Steelers, that game this year when we couldn't catch a kick-off...

They won't ever close it based on the weather being too COLD? I mean 20 degrees is fine for players earning their pay, but what about fan comfort?

Titans play outdoors by the way, so I would say weather= no factor.

It's open when the weather is betwee 50-80 and closed at any other time, including rain.

What I have heard is that they have to decide an hour before the game starts and keep it that way/ Don't know if that is true if it starts raining and a horrendous thunderstorm blows through, but it would be stupid not to be able to shut it, like they did during the Chargers, or open.

Supposedly it's an NFL rule. Doesn't make sense to me though, we are one of the only teams that have a roof like that, so, hmnn.......

The rules are that it has to be decided before gametime. The weather report shows that rain is n the forecast. If they have it open at gametime, they are not permitted to shut the roof during the pay of the game for safety reasons. Therefore, if it looks like rain, bring a raincoat texan fans! And for those who say just because the titans play in cold weather, will not affect the game, whenever it rains the offensive player has the advantage, and we don't want to give Vince any more advantage!

If it looks like rain they will shut the roof before gametime. I don't think it's any more complex than that.
