McNabb 80% chance of rain today in Seattle (1 Viewer)

Eagle fans any history of McNabb's numbers in the rain?

Some will play him no matter what but if you have another good option, could be something to think about.

 
Thanks for the heads up. I had planned on starting him over Schaub, now I am more comfortable with Schaub in the dome.

 
Looks like I'll pull the plug on Kevin Curtis now and either press my luck with Nate Washington again, or plug Tony Gonzalez in even though he has a brutal matchup because the Chiefs are at home.

Sucks because Curtis was starting against a Bottom 3 pass defense, but I'm not holding my breath for solid performances in heavy showers.

 
Something to think about:

Someone pointed out last week about the passing game in bad weather during the Saints/Bolts game. Receivers and QB's know where they're going which actually helps create separation on a slippery field. The trick is, they have to catcha wet ball. Both QB's ut up big numbers. I loved having Gates in that game.

 
It's not like McNabb normally plays in a warm weather city or a dome. He's played in plenty of bad weather games without gripping problems, so I don't know how worried you should be. If you have a better matchup - and I agree, Schaub's a good matchup this week - then play it but fretting over Donovan in anything other than a monsoon seems unnecessary.

 
I'm leaving Curtis in. (I'd have to make a waiver move to start someone else with my bye weeks.) I still think he's a good option.

Starting McNabb and Curtis (over Garcia and Washington) with limited confidence.McNabb's numbers have been pedestrian versus my expectations of Top 8.

Well, now I've read the Seattle Weather thread, and maybe it's going to be close to a monsoon. The rain sounds steady and heavy, with 15 mph winds. They throw a lot of short, possession type passes in their WCO, but this may negate anything deep. Something to watch.

This is a total overreaction. It's raining. Big deal.

Pencilled in Gonzo for now which is a safer play, but keeping in Curtis will allow me to make a change later in the afternoon as the Eagles play at 4 and N. Washington and the Steelers play tomorrow night. I like having that option, but I'd be content with an 8-10 point performance from Gonzo.

I was thinking more about the winds. I agree that rain, by itself, is not a big deal.
 
I would think if you have another top option- Schaub, Warner.... then you play the option. If your digging deep for a replacement stick with McNabb.

I'm seeing 13 mph with gusts up to 25. That's not really that much and the field itself is fairly protected from the wind.
 
I'm starting McNabb over Orton. This is the best indication you guys will get that McNabb craps the bed today.
Good luck with that. McNabb playing in a monsoon, Orton plays at home in nice weather vs. the Lions. I get it.
Being my typical indecisive self on Sunday morning. Now passing up on Gonzo and putting Nate Washington in at WR. If I read later this afternoon that the weather in Seattle looks passable, I'll plug Curtis back in.Good news for anyone starting Gonzo as he'll probably have a 7 catch, 100 yard, 1 TD afternoon! :wall:

When there's forecasted rain in Seattle, I can remember threads in here from people in Seattle it's not the same kind of rain as many of us usually expect we we think about rain.

Rain in seattle (it rains a lot there) is often light and this kind of rain can have very little impact on the passing game.

 
Need to decided between Curtis, Ginn, and Holmes. This doesn't make it easier. My opponent has Pennington and Miami doesn't have alot of options in the passing game.

65% chance of rain here in Chicago. Looking pretty gray out west and heading toward the city....
I'm 60 miles west of the city, and 15 minutes before game time it's sunny out.

Only go with Ginn if you think he's the best option, not if you feel the myth of "cancelling out opponents' players" has validity (which it doesn't).My decision down to Nate and Curtis. Can't roll with Gonzo this week with an angry, aggressive Bucs defense coming to town.
 
Rain doesn't have much efect on NFL QB's UNLESS it's a monsoon. High winds are a different story, but that doesn't sound like a significant issue here.
