Actually on the Dolphins web site (I went there check see if anything is being said about moving the game time/location) said Gus Johnson & Steve Tasker are doing the game. Sterling may be an upgrade.

Is there a chance this game will be moved?

I think windy, wet conditions would probably favor the Chiefs. Our running attack is potent, and our O-Line should be able to open holes for our running game. Especially if Taylor can't go.

On the flip side, I think the Dolphin's strength is the running attack. However, the Chiefs are much improved against the run, while our pass D is more suspect.

I think a pound the ball running matchup definitely favors the Chiefs...

If Taylor can't go, Matt Roth will play on obvious running downs. I think I'd rather face Taylor...

Roaf will handle any of them. The statement made was that we should be able to run against them, especially if Taylor CAN'T go.

My refutation was that we may actually be able to run better WITH Taylor, as Roth is bigger, stronger, and meaner than Taylor.

This storm could roll across south Florida on Saturday and keep raining until Sunday night. This could screw up the Chiefs game potentially. One of the guys I work with has tickets to the game, and is flying out Thursday AM. If the keys are evacuated, he could be screwed. No hotels, no rental cars. He's worried his vacation will be ruined. Poor guy...

Thanks. From the track, it would seem that the weather weenies are predicting that she's going to vastly increase her momentum. I don't remember the last time I saw a hurricane travel the distance they are showing on the latest track so quickly. It looks like she'll be moving at close to 40 mph.

I doubt that she'll make it beyond a weak Category 3, but throw in that forward movement, and that's some strong wind.

It will probably be rainy but nothing else. If it's worse then we'll probably see the game moved to Monday night.

Isn't the weakness of the Dolphins their secondary? This could be the great equalizer for them - not that our passing attack has been much to write home about (unless you count screens :) )

It's now a Cateogry 5 hurricane with 175 mph winds, central pressure is down to 892 mb. It's the strongest hurricane in the Gulf/Atlantic this season, if you can believe that. Katrina and Rita were never this strong. I believe that 892 is the 2nd strongest hurricane pressure ever in the Atlantic... it's up there anyway. Amazing how this will probably just be looked at as "Oh, another Cat 5."

tk13
10-19-2005, 04:03 AM
This thing has exploded. It was 110 mph last night. It's now still at 175 mph winds. According to the Weather Channel, the pressure has now dropped to an incredible 884 mb. This is now the most intense hurricane in recorded history in the Atlantic.

My buddy may not be happy but I sure as hell am that I canceled my trip to Miami this weekend.

He fuggin hates Miami now that he lives there. He say it takes atleast 2hrs drive anywhere, english is a 2nd language and housing prices are terrible. Says 500,000 for a 2br/1ba home is the norm. But, they do have those neat little 25K dollhouses in the frontyards.

I told him before he moved that visiting is fantastic, living there is horrible. Did he listen? Nope. Now he wants to move back after 2yrs there. Whattapuss.

There are several Eastern stadiums available on Sunday that can be used. It looks pretty obvious to me there will be no game in Miami on Sunday. Why don't they move the game to an open stadium. Pick one closest to Miami so Miami has "home field" advantage and then they can play and televise it on DirecTV on Sunday. Huh, why don't they, huh, huh?

I heard Mitch Holtus on the radio about an half hour ago.... he said they're considering moving the game to either Atlanta or Jacksonville. Both have byes this week. Or they may move the game to as early as Friday or as late as Tuesday. But the 'cane is supposted to hit close to gametime. Decision as early as tomorrow morning.

We can thank the league office for giving the Saints a "home" game in week 2... the backlash has all but ensured that the game won't be moved to KC.

I can't see the logic in scheduling the game to be in Miami on Tuesday. This hurricane is a potential disaster in the making. Why would they expect they could play on Tueday? Move it to another area and play the game on Sunday so I can watch it on DirecTV. It's all about me.

I would love for the game to be here in Jacksonville so I could go see it, but it would definitely be a road game for KC if the game was played here. Most of the "Jaguar" fans in Jacksonville are closet Dolphin fans anyway.

The only reason the Titans/Dolphins game last year was not shown on DirecTV was because it aired before the contract actually started that year.

Atlanta would seem to make the most sense. Open date in an NFL stadium, out of the way but still somewhat close, in the grand scheme of things...

Makes way more sense than screwing up everyone's schedules by moving it to a Tuesday and hoping nothing bad enough to screw that up happens.

Just as I put that in they put the latest advisory out... pretty much unchanged though, winds are 150 mph just below Cat 5 strength, and they still expect it to move very slowly over the next couple days. Said expect outer rainbands to effect south Florida throughout the day. Since this thing isn't moving, parts of western Cuba could see up to 40 inches of rain. Good luck with that.
