So it looks like for the first time this year Candlestick will be a mudder's paradise. Having been a 49er fan since the beginning of the Bill Walsh era, I've seen the "STICK" create lots of problems for the visiting playoff teams as well as the 49ers. Players get proud sometimes, refusing to where the deeper cleat that slows them down for the first half of a game, and then switch at halftime after slipping,giving up a huge play and the damage has been done.
Normally a wet muddy field favors the Offensive line and Wide Receivers. They know where they are going obviously.
Running Backs who make strong cuts, and dart in and out of holes struggle to maintain balance. Where as big,physical backs that run straight ahead can have great success.
Let me know how you think a muddy field and breezy rainy day will affect both sides in this one.
