Titans hoping for a blizzard Sunday, such that it will help

Peyton Manning AP

Perhaps you’ve heard, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s not necessarily a fan of winter weather.

So it only makes sense that the Titans are hoping for the worst in Denver Sunday, with the forecast calling for a high of 20 and a chance of snow.

The worse the weather, probably the better for us,” Titans coach Mike Munchak said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “Hopefully it’s a big snowstorm and it will give us a great chance to win.”

Of course, the Titans’ own history might not suggest that. They’re 5-5 in franchise history in games played at freezing or below, but the last two haven’t been pretty.

They’ve been outscored 89-21 in losses to the Packers and Chiefs.

Of course, the fact one side has Manning and the other side has Ryan Fitzpatrick might have more to do with the likelihood of a win than the temperature, but Munchak might be better off praying for a blizzard.

    Why on Earth would a guy go to the highest elevation in a snow ski haven of a state to play football if he didn’t like the cold?

    You missed the biggest Titans loss in the snow… Patriots 59 Titans 0. Now that was a fun game to watch :)

    The last time I saw the titans play in snow they got smoked 600-0 by the patriots, dumb coach

    Don’t forget losing 59-0 in a Foxboro blizzard maybe five years ago

    I’m pretty sure Brady and company lit up the Titans for 59-0 win in the snow a few years back as well. :)

    Ok, the a Titans franchise is 5-5 in freezing weather games in history… What relevance is that to the current team?

    ^^^^ Identical comments. Patriots homers, UNITE! Haha.

    Silly people. Your missing the point. He’s hoping for a blizzard so bad no one can see the field. Ala the Chicago fog game from years gone by. Then no one will know just how ugly we got beat.

    Isn’t a 5-5 record for the Titans higher than their overall winning percentage over the same time span? If so, then maybe they actually do better, not worse, in the snow.

    You guys are missing the point. He isn’t saying that Titans are a good, bad weather team. He is basically complimenting Peyton by saying as good as he has been, maybe the bad weather could help slow him down.

    Or Munchak could bring Mike Tomlin along for assistance…

    Denver won’t even have to put Manning on the field.

    Most local high schools could beat the Titans. Most have better RB’s too.

    .

    True, the Patriots beat a different Titans team 59-0 a few years ago. However, Chris Johnson was very successful running the ball in bad conditions. If he were a horse, you’d say he’s a mudder

    ^^His mudda was a mudda!

    Peyton Manning from…

    UT! (University of Tennessee)

    I doubt he cares at this point.

    Before that game, Tom Brady told the referee that “this is gonna be fun” then the ref laughed. He said no, really. They will have no pass rush. 59-0.

    Broncos fans need not to worry. Much overlooked and less hyped because of their passing game its indeed their running game leading the way lately. They’ll probably run for 200 yards again

  18. antalicus says: Dec 4, 2013 1:39 PM

    the 5-5 or 50% odds is better than they would have without snow.

    I know Manning said there was no underlying reason why he chose not his former college place, but I seem to think the reason was we gave CJ that mega deal!
