New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning doesn’t agree Joe Flacco’s opinion that having next year’s Super Bowl in New York/New Jersey is a bad idea.
“I disagree with a lot of things about that comment: wording and overall content of it,” said Manning, per ESPNNewYork.com. “I think it will be really good.”
Manning believes having a “unique Super Bowl like next year’s is a good idea.
“That’s the good thing about Super Bowls, you want something unique,” Manning said. “You want something different and you don’t want to have it in the same place every year (or) the same environment every year. Obviously as special as New Orleans is and unique it is, New York has that same, if not a better, atmosphere. A sports town, great restaurants, great entertainment.
“Obviously the weather will be kind of the big issue. But I always say, ‘Hey, you can play the NFC or AFC Championship Game in cold weather and have snow coming down, and that’s just part of it. Why not have a Super Bowl (in those conditions)?’ Originally, championships were decided in cold-weather games, and outside, and in New York. So this is a chance to bring it back out. I think it will be unique and different and something new and good for the game.”
I like the idea of a cold-weather Super Bowl. It’s never happened and why not do it in the nations biggest city?
