Yep. These teams are taking away the legendary elements of snow and rain. Some of the most memorable playoff games have been played in terrible weather. Who can forget the tuck rule game a few years back?

Thats the Steelers game. Weather has always given them the advantage and most players if not all prefer it.
Shows the toughness for a team to come out in 20 degree weather with snow and kick a$$.
Its Steeler Football.

However, most of those teams are built to only play in domes/good weather. Stick them in:

Pittsburgh
Cleveland
Cincinnati
Chicago
Green Bay
New York City
New England

Send most of those types of teams there in the winter and they won't play so well.
Thats very true. All the teams you listed get more dangerous as the season goes on because of weather situations. I never looked at it that way but thats a disadvantage for other teams coming into our weather.

Heinz Field and its bad grass are exactly what I expected. The Steelers should never play in an sort of stadium that protects them or their opponents from the weather. That's not how we do things.

I think the Vikings should go back to the open stadium. It'd be more of a home field advantage than Lambeau Field.
