There will be plenty of time this offseason -- and make no mistake, we are now in the offseason -- to discuss the myriad of things wrong with the New York Giants and debate ideas for how to fix them. For now, let's digress and discuss something else.
Let's discuss the upcoming 2014 Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium. You know, the one the Giants now officially won't play in.
Ever since the NFL gave the Giants and New York Jets the first-ever outdoor cold-weather Super Bowl many have fretted about the possibility of bad weather. Wh-wh-wh-wh-what if it snows?
Well, after Sunday in the NFL can anyone wonder about now? So what if it snows? It could turn out to be one of the most fun, awesome events in NFL history.

If it turns out anything like the Philadelphia Eagles-Detroit Lions game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philly or the Baltimore Ravens-Minnesota Vikings game at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore it certainly will be.
Sunday might have been the first time I have ever intentionally watched an entire Eagles game when the Giants weren't playing. The conditions, with more than six inches of snow on the field, made it impossible for me to take my eyes off the game. If you watched it, you know that after an awful start both teams played pretty good, and incredibly exciting, football most of the way as the Eagles won, 34-20.
The Ravens-Vikings game, ultimately won by the Ravens, featured five touchdowns in the final 2:05. Wouldn't the NFL love to see a Super Bowl finish the way that game did?
So, when it comes to the Super Bowl at MetLife I say let it snow, let it snow, snow.
