    Gunna have to re-read what I wrote because I have no idea how you came up with that reply. Teams that are used to playing in the snow, regardless of how often, have an advantage over a team from south beach That does not. Period. How much of an advantage can be debated. But you cant have your head in the sand. We consider our heat an advantage.. esp with west coast teams or dark jerseys.. etc. Its just silly to think otherwise.

    Our heat is an advantage only because we practice in it. Pittsburgh doesn't practice in the snow daily. Even when our team doesn't practice in the heat, the jersey thing works somewhat because dark attracts heat, that is science. There is no such advantage in cold.

    There is absolutely no advantage to a team that plays 1-2 games in this a year. I can confidently say that. Your body doesn't give a crap what you did a year ago, it has absolutely no advantage.

    There is a girl at my job who has lived in snow for 40 years, only in Florida for one. After just that one year she says her body cant handle being in that cold. I dont see how an NFL player who sees it once a season has any advantage whatsoever.

    Okay. So you say there is no such thing as home field advantage in the snow for teams that live in cold areas vs Miami. Just making sure. I bet my home and car that vegas disagrees. Such a big contradiction. You practice all year in 80-90 plus with high humidity. Now youre going into 10-20 with snow and it's not a disadvantage? Ow. My head.

    And one team has more experience playing in extreme hot weather conditions when they're home, there are no excuses period. Must win.

    Unless something crazy happens no one is going to blame a loss on the snow. No one is making excuses. But if you dont recognize the fact that PITT has an immediate advantage being at home AND in the snow, then idk what to tell you. Could be microscopic, or it could be huge. But it still is what it is.

    Every location has advantages for the home team.. Denver probably has the biggest advantage in the NFL because of the high altitude air, some teams have loud stadiums, some teams have different types of turf, some teams like the Redskins play fake crowd noise.. and teams like the Dolphins have extreme hot weather in September.

    HUGE game today guys. We need to get off to a quick start and break their spirit early. I'd love to see Wallace have a big day, he's going to want this one real bad. Might even go up for a jump ball or something.

    Go Vikings Go Phins!!!

    27-17 to the Phins. Get pressure on Rothlisberger. Don't let him move around the pocket. I expect a Wake up call game for Cameron. Vernon has took the spotlight lately.

    Why can't I watch the game on my directv Sunday ticket online account? I get this message " due to NFL rules, local broadcast or non-sellout games are not available to stream on your device" its not a local game where I live. Atlanta and greenbay is the local game where I live. I get the Atlanta game on TV and online but not the dolphins game. It makes no sense. I am pissed. Does my computer think I am in a different location?
