    All the NFL is doing is analyzing if the cold weather would effect the amount of money the NFL would make in the week leading up to the Superbowl. That is all they care about.

      I hope they play in the snow or nasty cold like football is meant to be played. Something different for a change. The only ones that may suffer are the fans that layed out $1000 plus to sit in the cold.

        I want to see a return to cold weather championships. I also want to see every venue in the NFL get a moment in the spotlight. Bring the SB to Lambeau, Soldier Field, Gillette, etc.

        As for the so-called advantage (or disadvantage to a dome/warm weather team) -- they potentially play every road game, up to 11 games, at the mercy of someone else's weather/environment. Why make the exception for a championship?

          Yup, what if your team is based on power and built in the trenches, then you have to play on carpet against a speedy dome team? Sounds like an advantage for them...

            None of these "issues" are even real anyway, they're manufactured by the media.
            I haven't heard one Coach or player express concern over an open air SB.
            Did you miss when Flacco called it ******ed?

You have the option of closing the roof if it looks like inclement weather, but you also still have a grass field. Same with the Cardinals stadium in the desert. Don't get me wrong. I only prefer this for the Superbowl. All other games, anything goes.
                      hey since your in here, what's your take on Dan Conner?
                      Football has been very, very good to us.
                      After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                      But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                      # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                      1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                      2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                      3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                      4-New York Giants!!!
                      5-NE
                      Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                        I was excited about the signing last FA period because I felt he'd do better as a 3-4 ILB rather than a 4-3 MLB, and he was supposed to provide competition for the young Bruce Carter... but that race wasn't even close.



                        In short he's a stop gap. Not very fast, doesn't have great lateral speed, but has 'okay' instincts. Pretty good run stuffer, though. He plays the run bigger than he is (if that makes sense)... he holds his ground. But he also doesn't shed blocks as well as you would think. Not all that great on ST either. I was disappointed in the way he panned out here, but he was serviceable. Definitely not awful.

                        Here's a link to the entire Saints game, which was probably his best. (I'd recommend watching the videos individually and not in the thread for buffering purposes). http://cowboyszone.com/forums/dallas...s.php?t=249741

                          Bringing in Connor makes me think one of two things, either the FO somehow thinks Herzlich is only a season away from becoming a starter, or we have our eyes on a MLB somewhere in the first 3 rounds and want a veteran presence there while the rook learns the ropes.

                            I know I'm late to the party on this, but I have wondered that as well. I don't think he has yet.

                              The Superbowl location isnt about the game, it is sad to say. It is about the activities surrounding the game.

                              Sponsors put up tents around the stadium. Merchandise is sold for hours or even days around the stradium. The NFL wants to make it's sponsors money and when it is cold or rainy there is very little foot traffic.

                              Furthermore the half time show needs to be a big enough performance to keep the ratings at least respectable enough to sell quality commercial time. Half time shows dont go over well in rain storms, Miami was asked to build a new roof over their stadium after the rain during the half time show a couple years ago. The NFL demanded it if they wanted future SBs.

                                I've only been to one SB. (Nightmare in Tampa). It definitely was more about the spectacle in the days before the game. Just the experience of walking around the stadium and surrounding areas was fun. On local beach, someone made a large sandcastle of Giants and Ravens helmets.Even bumped into a player and celebrity or two. T Saragusa eating at seaside place one afternoon. Endless stuff given away, and really cheap beers from every bar starting right after breakfast each day. Mixing with other Giant fans and even Raven fans was great. No real rivalry between teams then. I don't know how they will be able to duplicate this in NJ in Feb.

                                Others in my family have been to Arizona and Indy. Arizona was great. Indy OK, according to them.

                                Having said that, I hope for a real Nor'easter!
