While the offensive players have been keeping an eye on the weather reports in San Francisco and seeing how the rain and possible mud will affect them, defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has a very simple philosophy for dealing with any elements:
“It doesn’t matter,” he said.
“Because it’s the championship game and it doesn’t matter,” he said. “You fight all year to get here. It can snow, it can hail, it can rain, it can do whatever it wants to do. We’re going to be there. We’re going to be ready to play.”
Fewell said he’s not even curious about weather reports and how they will possibly affect the 49ers’ offensive play-calling.
“It doesn’t matter,” he said again.
