Two-time Super Bowl Champion Eli Manning took exception to Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco saying it was ‘retarded’ to have a Super Bowl in the NY/NJ area. Manning went right at Flacco, pointing out his distaste for his verbiage, and the fact it has taken two Super Bowls for people not to mistake him for Peyton in New York City. He seemed a little ticked off that a first time SB QB could be such a DIC…You get what we’re saying. “I disagree with a lot of things about that comment: wording and overall content of it,’’ via Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. “That’s the good thing about Super Bowls, you want something unique, you want something different, and you don’t want to have it in the same place every year, you don’t want to have it in the same environment every year,’’ Manning said. “Obviously as special as New Orleans is and unique it is, New York has that same, if not better, a better atmosphere. A sports town, great restaurants, great entertainment.” “

  • It's gonna be interesting to say the least, and besides, all the VIP's will just pay for luxury suites so they can stay warm and dry if the weather is bad. It will definitly be cold it just remains to be seen if it snows or their are heavy winds. Both teams will have to deal with the same elements so it will be fair for both sides.
  • You tell em Eli...Football was made to be played in COLD weather - Can't understand why Flacco would say that considering he was a Jersey boy other than the fact that the pretty boy might get frostbite (eg: Coughlin in Pats @ Giants Dec 2008.) CLASSIC! Suck it up Flacco.
