Two things I noticed. NFL players have gotten taller. Mo at 6'5 plus wasnt the tallest guy in that video. Mo's extra long arms and extra bid extra strong hands are perfect for reaching out into the end zone.
Heavy rains and all are headed to the game tonight?
Something called a “bomb cyclone” (meteorologists are the original click-baiters) will affect portions of the West Coast on Sunday and Monday. That’s where this week’s Sunday night and Monday night games will be played.
Currently, it’s looking like rain and high winds could affect Colt-49ers tonight in Santa Clara, with rain also in Seattle on Monday night for Saints-Seahawks.
That same issues apply for the Sunday night game. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Friday that they practiced with wet balls, and that they’re expecting it to indeed be wet and windy.
“Jimmy [Garoppolo] wanted to try it out and work some different gloves and stuff to see,” Shanahan said. “Nate [Sudfeld] gave him some ideas on some things that he’s used and they tried that out. So, it seemed like they enjoyed it, but that stuff, really just for the quarterbacks, they can change a couple things, but that’s all up to them and that stuff’s all different. Everyone else, you deal with it and you see what type of game it is. You see who’s staying in the ground the best, who your best mudders are and you figure that out as the game goes and you lean on them.”
The 49ers had a game like that two years ago in Washington. It looks like they may be getting one of those tonight. It keeps down the scoring, but based on the amount of water and mud and stuff, it can be fun to watch on TV.
But none of those 2021 outdoor games for either team involved weather anything like what’s expected Sunday night at Levi’s Stadium.
It’s not expected to be pretty for the Colts vs. 49ers matchup in Santa Clara tonight, and yes, this weather forecast is having a real impact on Sunday Night Football betting odds.
It’s going to be an interesting night. The west coast is dealing with the strongest October windstorm on record for that area, so it’s going to be pretty breezy. Hopefully Wentz is on target tonight.Heavy rains and all are headed to the game tonight?
Takes more than that to stop Big Mo!
Odds included here: 49ers -4.
