    I feel like I'm gonna get shit from someone for asking this, but I've always known that the winds in the Meadowlands are bad, and we need strong armed qb's to succeed in it. Why is this? The design of the stadium? The area?

    God doesn't want the Jets to win. Or didn't want Pennington on the team. Take your pick.

    The area there is nothing around there to stop the wind.

    The winds at the Meadowlands are so bad because people eat those disgusting hot dogs from the concession stands, devour that shitty grade-D meat chili from god-knows where, and wash it down with the stale beer they get from the tap.

    No QB can throw in that kind of atmosphere.

    Thats pretty much the main reason but when the wind is really bad its never blowing in just one direction. It always seems to be coming from every angle.:breakdance:

    Well it was noticeably worse for the opposing teams when they were trying to kick field goals and stadium security opened the doors to the tunnels. This really got the winds swirling. Seems like it was more prevalent in the Tuna days.

    Parcells looked for every advantage possible to win a game. Now that's coaching :beer:

    I'm wondering how the new stadium will be affected by the wind. I'm sure they've designed it better to knock down the wind a bit

    NFL made them stop doing that. Now the door has to be open or shut for both teams. Still an advantage for the home team who are more used to dealing with it when the door is open.

    He sure as hell as did. I'm sure you can find articles online that make mention of it. It's pretty well known.

    2 factors, one is that we're in the north east of the USA the other factor is that the stadium is close to the water. That the only thing i can think of I dont think any othr NFL (cept the Giants) that have a similar situation.

    Actually, the door is left open because the State of NJ says it must be because of security and safety reasons.

    Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Buffalo have similar problems.

    Cincinnati has benn rough through the years, too.

    See the Freezer Bowl (1981 AFC Championship Game) with its wind chill factor of minus 37 degrees.
    In 2008, the windiest game was the Tennessee at Cincinnati game.
