    I know Hansen can't so we're probably screwed through the air.

    We may feel some wind, but it isn't like the gusts are going to be at 50mph inside Folsom.

    Really? I seem to recall wind being an issue for a lot of games even inside bigger stadiums. Passing and kicking games can be drastically impacted by wind. Our game plan against Nebraska was taken out by the wind in 1990. Running wasn't the only reason we won, we had to wait until the 4th quarter to have the winds at our backs to throw and we had some big time key passes in the 4th.

    Also, 75-100 mph gusts with a constant of 45-50 isn't going to be felt a "little" in the stadium.

    You are correct, just because we will be in the stadium doesn't mean we wont be feeling wind. With sustained 50mph winds we will still feel 35mph or so

    good thing - I'd hate for them to actually have to move to get warm or something.

    Wait. Most of them are already mummies, so I guess they'd be warm anyway.

    So Arizona is two spots better than us in rushing yards per game and their defense allows 3.9 points less than ours. Should be really interesting.

    That is some very complex coding and I am in no way surprised that no one has posted that.

    Physics question: Foles throws a pass at 60 mph. The ball leaves his hand at a 10% vertical trajectory. The receiver is 30 yards downfield and assume he will catch the ball at the same elevation it left Foles' hand. The cross wind is exactly perpendicular to the line from QB to WR and blowing at a velocity of 50 mph, level tomthe ground. What distance into the wind must Foles allow for drift?

    Defenses had better plan for short throws and screens. At least screens are our most effective pass play.

    What? No. He throws it straight and the receiver adjusts for the drift you morons!

    I provided an impossible or bad question. Why cannot this problem be answered?
