Most of the areas around Texas are a no go--its a big storm with still a lot of potential to go anywhere. Some of the models end up doing un-nice things to San Antonio. My folks live there and there is a bit of panic in the streets.

I'm guessing Monday night, Baltimore or postponed. If some of the worst case scenarios happen, Houston isn't going to be in condition to have a ball game here.

I think McNair is doing right by waiting and seeing.

I don't really think there's a chance of it happening in Baltimore. It really sounds like there's a big "wait-and-see" approach going on.

I can't imagine them sending the game to Baltimore and putting us on a 4 game road trip. But, I also couldn't imagine a Monday night game if we get the kind of nastiness they're saying we will.

If they were to postpone it how would that be handled? We have different BYE weeks, so that's not an option. How could they do that?

I am really hating the situation. Similiar to Hollywood Texan, I have a flight scheduled to come to the game. My flight comes in on Sat and leaves Monday morning...So a Monday night game is out for me. This really sucks. I am still praying that all turns out well and I won't be out of any money.

There may be widspread power outages.. even if Relaint isn't damaged too bad, you can't have a game without electricity, phone lines, water, sewer..

Lets see what happens to the city infrastructure... and it doesn't help that you are 1/2 mile from Brays Bayou, which will flood...

Flights will probably be cancelled on Sat, in and out of Houston.

Default Re: What happens to sundays game if Ike comes??

I'm guessing 90% that we don't play at 3:15 on Sunday, and 50/50 on changing the start time to Sunday night, or moving it to Monday night. No way do we play in B'more, but New Orleans would be a slight possibility if Reliant was unavailable Sunday or Monday.

EDIT:

The NFL says it will monitor Ike’s approach in advance of the Sunday game at Reliant Stadium between the Texans and Ravens. If it is impractical to play Sunday, the most likely choice would be to move the game to Monday night.

"The league is working on a plan,” said Texans owner Bob McNair. “When you tell us where it's going to hit and when it's going to hit, we can tell you the plan. We'll play here unless we're forced to play somewhere else."

I have heard reports that Ike is to make landfall as a cat 4 Hurricane. Harris county may see winds that of a Cat 1 to Cat 2 hurricane with lots of rain.

There are about to be 5 million people without power.

I seriously doubt we play Sunday.

Of course it would be fitting to have Reliant Stadium the only place in the entire town with power.

Default Re: What happens to sundays game if Ike comes?? - UPDATE!!!!

I just watched Mark Berman on Fox 26 here in Houston and from he has been told from the Texans if the game isn't played Sunday, then it will be palyed Monday night here in Houston.

The plan is to play Sunday afternoon, but Mcnair said he wants whats best for the fans and if they have to move it, it will be moved to Monday not out of town, unless the NFL forces mcnair to move the game.

I hope Bob has a few tractor-trailer sized diesel-electric gnerators on standby.... because if Ike hits as a high 3 or low 4 around Freeport-Matagorda he wont have power from the grid at Reliant for a couple of weeks.

So, if the game is moved to Monday...what happens to TV coverage for those of us in Austin? Do they still get to show the game? Does NFL Sunday Ticket still get the game?

I'm guessing it would become a double header...Just like this weeks Monday night was. So they would both be televised on ESPN.

Thing is, the other MNF game is in dallas. One of us or the other is possibly going to get a 9pm CT start, ending at 12:30am. The other option I could see - similar to what happened with the Saints/Giants after Katrina - is that one game starts at 6p on ESPN and switches to ESPN2 at 7:30 so the already scheduled game begins on time on ESPN, except in regional coverage, where the Ravens/Texans game would remain on ESPN then switch to the Eagles/cowboys game when it's over.

What I DON'T think will EVER happen again is a "home" game in the opponent's stadium, like happened to the Saints in that same MNF game. What a terrible mistake that turned out to be for the NFL. Better to play in a "neutral" stadium.

oh, the IRONY if we were forced to play our game in the Superdome three years after their refugees fled to our city and lived in the Astrodome.

I think the Superdome makes sense if only symbolically. I wonder if they could have the Texans play in Texas Stadium around 3pm on Monday to give them time to finish the game before the 'other' Monday Night Football game between Cowboys and Eagles. Why not play two games in one day?
