Flacco responded to the topic with a statement that he later regretted and rephrased, but his overall opinion of a cold weather Super Bowl is still the same.
Flacco does not think that it would be a good thing to play in a cold weather Super Bowl. He stated
“Imagine being in 10-degree weather and snow,” he said. “Have fun.”
I think that a cold weather Super Bowl would be great. These guys are suppose to be the best teams in the league that can win anywhere or in anything. Yes it could provide a home field advantage in a sense for a cold weather team playing in snow versus a team from the south that won’t see it that often, but really we are talking about only a difference of a couple of games a year that one team would see snow.
This also provides the opportunity for all the teams to host a Super Bowl rather than just the ones that have domes.
This sets the stage for a year away in which the home of the Jets and the Giants will play host to the 2014 Super Bowl at the Meadowlands.
