  • Does anyone know if the Giants cleaned off their outside field so our boys can practice in the cold today?

  • no clue but we did get some more snow here last night. only an inch or two but it's very cold out so the field may be frozen.

  • I heard Denver was practicing on a different turf because the grass is to hard to practice on. Still think it was outside

  • Can't link it but, I heard they are practicing outside but not on the game field. For whatever that's worth.

    That was on the ESPN ticker for Denver. Are you sure it was the same for Seattle? Makes sense based on prior news about the field

    They followed up by saying the game field was not in the condition to be practiced on.
    I've had the NFLN on all day, no ESPN so far today.

  • Nfl live on espn just reported giant outside fields still not cleaned off and Pete wanted to practice outside as much as possible. So they are inside with all doors open to facility

  • Per Ed Werder, the Hawks practiced in the Giants indoor facility as the outdoor facility was still frozen. What Pete did though was open up all the doors of the facility to make it have similar temperatures to what it was outside. Still don't like the fact that they cannot get a chance to practice outside.

  • I'm not worried about this. They played in a cold rainy playoff game, they played at Giants Stadium in December.. they practice in 30-40 degree temps all the time.. this team is used to this.

  • The thing is though, the Broncos got to practice outside. Not exactly fair, but oh well.

    Yes but we get to practice near MetLife, the Barncos have to practice way far away :snack:

  • Broncos (Jets) practice facility has field turf or artificial grass, Seahawks (Giants) have grass fields. Something the NFL will have to think about for the next NY/NJ Superbowl. Just make do with what you have and if this is a factor for losing the game, really tough break but nothing is going to change what it is today.

  • Peter King via Twitter: Nine times I've been a SB pool reporter. Today's the fastest practice I've covered at a SB. Carroll loved hearing that.

    Indoor, outdoor, whatever. Boys are ready.

  • Considering the indoor facility has the same turf as MetLife stadium, if they can get the indoor temp around 40 degrees, its probably beneficial for the Hawks to practice where they're at

  • Good read thanks for the link. If that place has AC im sure they could somehow crank it up all the way to get the temps closer. Or bring in the large industrial fans and place them by the doors get that cold air circulating to filter out and drop the temps down lower. *shrug* all in all it sounds good

  • I don't think AC works like that, but I'm no HVAC guy.

    Anyway, I don't think it matters where they practice.
