"I think it's retarded. I probably shouldn't say that. I think it's stupid," he told reporters after the Ravens arrived in New Orleans for Sunday's Super Bowl. "If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one.
"Other than that I don't really like the idea. I don't think people would react very well to it, or be glad to play anybody in that kind of weather," he said.
Last time I checked, there was no retractable roof in M&T Bank Stadium.
Imagine if Ben said that.......
I think cold weather SB's should be every other year. This isn't baseball. This is football which is played in bad weather. I don't care if the final score of the game is 9-6, that's how this game should be played.
Is Joe Flacco the QB to take us that extra step into the arena league?
