Seahawks practice inside, but open doors to chill temperature

The Seattle Seahawks elected to remain indoors at the New York Giants facility in East Rutherford, N.J. on Wednesday, but with a little caveat.

According to the pool report from practice by Peter King of TheMMQB.com and Football Night In America, Seattle opened the doors at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center to lower the temperature in the Giants’ indoor practice facility.

“The turf out there is somewhat frozen, and the turf in here is good,’’ head coach Pete Carroll said, explaining why he chose to work inside for the late-afternoon practice. “And if we could get the temperature anywhere near what it will be Sunday—it could be anywhere from the low twenties to the mid-thirties—that’s what we wanted. And it’s supposed to be about 36 in here, maybe a little lower right now. It’s close to what we’ll have Sunday.”

The temperature outside for Seattle’s practice was 22 degrees at the midway point of practice. Inside the building where the team was practicing, the temperature was a still chilly 36 degrees.

With the weather report continuing to improve for Super Bowl Sunday, it’s still plenty cold enough to simulate the conditions (minus the wind) they will be facing by kickoff.

    You can’t cool off the red hot Seahawks! But, you can put Manning on ice.

    It’s because Denver is scared. They know they are about to get the beating of their life.

    Seahawks will be fine. They are use to playing in the cold. Manning is the one who needs the help considering he sucks in the cold. Hawks are going to wipe the floor with Manning. Manning can’t throw in the wind and plays like crap in the cold, both of which are going to be factors in the game.

    Anyone notice how the Steelers always practice outdoors and how we always dominate outdoors (when the Goodell’s goons don’t get involved)?

    If it’s not raining Seattle doesn’t have a chance.

    If they really want to simulate Sunday’s game, they should try putting Joe Montana as the scout team QB.

    Once my teams out, I only care about the squares on my football pool

    I have to say I like how Pete Carroll is handling things. He carries himself like a guy that’s played a big game in front of a major audience and won.

    Just do whatever it takes Pete ! Make sure Harvin’s healthy for Sunday ’cause he’ll be your MVP of the game !

    We want the ball and we’re gonna score.

    Broncos have been practicing outside. The game is outside. Makes sense to me.
