the weather services will ask Peyton Manning what weather he wants to throw key pick six in

This is how all SB's should be - open stadiums where snow flies. If the corporate slime can't hang, well too bad for them.

Weather will be an issue for the fans , not for the players and I think it's gonna be a pretty good game

BTW- This Sunday the forecast for Tampa, the only other city that bid on  48th Super Bowl- clear skies with a high of 77. At kick off the temp should be around 67. Just saying.

They rarely get the weather right 48 hours in advance never mind a week out. It's Feb, yeah it's going to be cold. The rest we have to wait until the end of the week.

This was a stupid idea. They've done everything to open the game up and now they purposely put the most  important and most watched game of the year in the worst possible weather. These guys should be in the White House.

Stupid, stupid, stupid!!!  The best thing that could happen is sloppy farce of a game in freezing sleet with maybe a few thousand fans hospitalized for hypothermia.  I know that sounds terrible but that is the only way the idiot Goodell will get the message that Super Bowls should be played in conditions fair to the players, comfortable for the fans and respectful to the game itself.  The NFL is playing a craps game with the weather and the fans stand to be the biggest losers.

According to the National Weather Service, any weather forecasts more than five days out are less accurate than the historical data for such date. So thanks SI!

it looks like there might be rain and snow, but if it isn't really windy likely won't effect either team

Pretty simple actually...


If t turns nasty, I expect a ground game by both teams. If moderate, an air show. Don't particularly care one way or another, just ENTERTAIN ME!

I noticed that as well! I would expect a better vision from a guy named Ben Eagle!

@JamesRaulerson Just saying what... did I miss something in there?  Or was that just a reminder at the end of your statement that you were just saying something a moment ago.

@sportsGuy12The folks at the NFL were aware all along.  But apparently they vastly underestimated the reaction of the fans that can put up with games in all types of weather for every game that leads up to the Super Bowl but then somehow get weak in the knees over the final game being played in the elements.

@mattlyonYou act like football players and fans have never been outside in their lives.

@mattlyon   Football has always been a outdoor sport. And it should continue to be that way.

Fans will still go. Sure it would be nice if it was 70 degrees and sunny. But, that is not what the game is about. Football is still football. No matter what the weather.

@mattlyon where the F do you live that 40 and a 30% chance of rain is "horrible weather" …..  get real kid.

@mattlyon 40 degrees with a chance of rain is NOT the "worst possible weather" playoff games this year have been in worse weather than what is forecasted for this weekend.

@reneeWhy just the SB, regular season as well, in fact every team should be in a dome, flags at their side and a manicurist on the sidelines to touch up their nails after a vicious grab of the flag results in the team colors being chipped away.


One dresses for the occasion.  If one is ignorant and doesn't dress to keep from freezing, that is on them and not Goodell or the NFL.  Do you also support every child receiving a participation ribbon and no red ink used to grade papers in school?

@Aaron44-- And AccuWeather is notorious for its "worst-case-scenario" forecasts. I always trust NWS much more than AccuWeather.

@JoeCabot @sportsGuy12 A majority of those fans do not have to pay several thousands of dollars to go to NFC/AFC championship games.  The Superbowl crowd is a completely different subset of possible customers.

@jimmyjon_55555@mattlyonI live in WV, its will be 8 degrees tonight. I just expressed an opinion. I didn't know I would get cussed at by somebody I have never met. As my dad told me 50 years ago when I was 8, You might need to get a dictionary and learn some additional vocabulary. Sure doesn't say much about you to go off that quick over someone's opinion. What do you say when you get made. Bet your mom is proud.

@mikeytwice@mattlyonOpposed to what. A football game where the players determine the outcome, not the weather. Hopefully, the 40 degrees holds up.

@Voiceover310 @mattlyon Guess you missed the game in Philly this past, snowing and very cold during the game BUT it was still played, Green Bay plays in cold,windy snowy conditions during the season, It happens remember the frozen game in GB years ago........If fans dont wan to sit at the Super bowl they dont have to go..........
