With a number of games forecast to be played in high winds and below freezing temperatures this weekend, 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe tell you exactly what it's like to play in these miserable conditions. 

Jonas Knox: "Do you think there's gonna be some guys playing in the NFL this weekend at some point during the game are like, 'I don't care if we win or lose I just want to go inside.'?"
Brady Quinn: "Oh yeah, they want to get the hell out of there. Especially if there's no postseason aspirations... It's supposed to be in the single digits in some places and with a wind-chill in the negative, when that wind whips up like that, that is miserable. That's about as bad as it gets."
LaVar Arrington: "I've been in so many games where we weren't in post season contention and everything is worse. It's colder. The hits hurt more. The ground hurts more. Practices hurt more, they seem longer... We honestly lost to Chicago one year because we were out of playoff contention and it was too cold. I'll admit that."
