Along with the fans, there are a few teams who will be watching to see how big of a success the cold weather Super Bowl will be, including the Philadelphia Eagles. According to reports, the Eagles will be looking to see how everything plays out on Super Bowl Sunday because Eagles team president Don Smolenski said that they are considering a Super Bowl bid of their own.

The stadium is 10 years old now... and the location is already locked down until 2018 You've missed your chance.

The primary reason New Jersey is getting this Super Bowl is because MetLife Stadium is only 4 years old. The NFL loves putting the big game in new stadiums.

Oh boy.

Could be interesting. I wonder who they'd throw snowballs at and boo at during the game and half time concert.

It would be awesome for the Steelers to play a Super Bowl in Philly.

They might set the record for total number of auto break-ins in the stadium parking lot during the game.

A Super Bowl in Philly.....

I think having the Winter Olympics in Death Valley is more apt to happen.

Yeah because that happens often. Detroit, New Orleans and Miami aren't crime infested either. Or any NFL city other than GB. Idiot.

Plus Mara was a key cog in keeping revenue sharing with the TV deal in place.

I like watching the Eagles current team, but seriously another snowed out SB?

How about we wait another 47 SBs before they play another one on a frozen tundra IMO....

I don't want one in Philly. But I love the idea of cold weather super bowls. Ticket prices are still out ragious but much better than if it were in a warmer climate. Maybe if we keep it to cold weather cities the average fan will not only have tickets be made available but also be able to afford them.

F the media circus that has become the SB. F the hoity toity kinds that make a vacation out of it.

I prefer Cold weather only for the NFC/AFC Championships.

But all SBs should be played on natural grass and outdoors IMO....

The media has "softened" up the game for the general viewer, IMO causing the zebras to throw the yellow flags unnecessarily and damaging the product.

If the SB is going to be under those conditions then all teams should be forced to play in domes or in fair weather cities.

Good conditions are just as much of an advantage to passing teams/teams built on speed as bad weather is for running/smash mouth teams.

Denver will probably be the next ''cold-weather'' SB/location.......esp. if they win sunday.

That and we Philadelphia fans don't like to see our stadium disgraced with other team's colors.

This is why so many opposing teams fans walk out of there with bloody noses and busted lips: if you come to Lincoln Financial Field, you root for the Eagles. Whine and cry about it all you want, just don't show up to the stadium with a Giants jersey on acting like you didn't know.
