The weather channel is saying there could be significant rainfall on Sunday evening for the game. Do you think it will effect the outcome at all? I really don't, but you never know, it could turn sloppy. Either way I think it could make it more fun. Not that it will be like old Municipal Stadium with the painted dirt, but I always enjoyed those games. It seemed like it rained every year when the Steelers played in Cleveland.

Maybe the rain will prevent the river from catching on fire.

I thought you guys weren't playing the Cowboys until week 14?

Pacman? Rain? No, didn't work for you?

Meh, it was worth a shot...

Well, he was in Cleveland last week. Perhaps there will still be some cash floating around in the air 7 days later.

On a serious note, I don't like what this could do to our passing game, which is our biggest asset against the Browns.

The 10 day forecast on Weather Channel's website says that they expect rain tomorrow in Cleveland, rain and thunder on Saturday, few showers on Sunday, and showers on Monday. Although it looks like a decent amount of precipitation will fall over the next few days there, Sunday would appear to be the mildest day of all. It is not like we will be playing with the full force of Hurricane Ike upon us.

Severe conditions only seem to occur when we play the Dolphins anyway (the muck bowl at Heinz last year, the game they had to move to Monday night down at their place in Ben's first start as a rookie, and I even remember a game back in the late 80's or early 90's against the Dolphins that was pretty severe...I seem to recall Mike Mularkey, back when he was a TE for us, sliding about 10 extra yards after the tackle as if he were on a Slip N Slide).

As long as the field isn't as bad as Heinz last year during for the Phins game I will be OK with the elements.

I couldn't agree more.

This is bull**** and frankly I'm getting sick of it. Nearly every game in the second half of the season last year was played in the rain and slop which mitigates the effectiveness of our passing game (yeah I know the edge goes to receivers in those conditions, but it still can make it difficult to throw and catch). The only chance the Clowns have against us is turnovers and these conditions can make that area very unpredictable.

That said, we're still going to pummel them.

Our run blocking looked pretty good last week, maybe FWP will get another hat trick, maybe Mendy gets his first points!

Houston is supposed to get pummelled with rain because of Ike hitting land this weekend. It is so bad that even though they have a retractable roof stadium, they still moved their Sunday game with the Ravens to Monday night football, so there will be 2 MNF games again this week (only they will be played at the same time this time around).

TX is not very happy right now. We should be OK-ish in San Antonio, but probably will have a lot of refugees.

If the big one hits Houston, it will be a very bad thing. Houston floods really badly even with heavy thunderstorms.
