Nice...
I was going to post about this as well. Only thing I can say is bundle up kids because its going to be cold! I am in the club level so if the game is not close I might spend part of the second half inside next to the fire place having a warm drink and watching the game on the big screen tv. However, if the game is close I will spend every moment outside being as loud as I can.

You get to be warm, by the fireplace sipping a beverage?? I'm so jealous!! I'll be in the upper level freezing my !@$&*@$*'s off!! , I was so no thrilled when I heard that forecast. I hope they pipe in some freezing air during practices! I don't know how much experience Peyton has playing in those temperatures. The last Bronco game was tough and it was in the upper 30's I think, so being half that, yikes! I think the coldest game I've been to was a Broncos/Chiefs game in KC, it was like 20-something. Eventually you just go numb!!
GO BRONCOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Much discussion has been made of Manning's record and performances away from a dome. People try to argue that he is not as good outside. But what they fail to consider is that EVERY QB in the league will develop a noticeable split in his performances over time when playing at home and away from home. In Manning's case, home happened to be inside a dome for a long time. I'm not a stats guy but I would be willing to bet that his home/away splits are not really any worse than any other. If you really wanted to get a better idea of his indoor/outdoor performances, you could gather all the data of all his road games throughout his career and compare those played indoors with those played outdoors.

TRANSLATION: I am not worried at all about the cold. Yes, it will be cold, but these players have all done this before. It is not like it will be any warmer on the Ravens sideline either, so the enemy has to play in the exact same conditions as do the Broncos.

I am ready for this game to start already!

Yeah, the cold shouldn't be a factor for Denver. They'll be fine. I do however believe that the altitude will be a huge advantaege, as the Ravens play at sea-level.

I remember watching Troy Polamalu need oxygen in the 1st quarter here in Denver earlier this year. The bad guys can't breath up here. If the Broncos can put together some long drives in the first half, and maybe even run some hurry up, that Ravens defense will be sucking wind late in the game.

Agreed. Denver has two big advantages. 1) how loud we are and 2) our altitude. By second half you will see it impact the Ravens defense.

Can't wait for these games to start! Good luck, Bronco fans! Going to the game sounds great, especially club level!

Some friends are going with Packers.com fan tours to San Fran, sounds fun. I've been fighting horrible sinus, ear issues since November, can't get on a plane for a long flight! They are looking for a 4th person!

Z-pack.

Given the temps we've had over the last couple of weeks, 20 ain't that bad.

Agreed. On the other side of the hills, over the last ten days, on 6 of those days we just did HIT 20.
