(NEW YORK) -- There will be no shortage of intriguing storylines to come out of Super Bowl 47, but Ravens' quarterback Joe Flacco is making headlines for his comments about Super Bowl 48. He does not think that haivng the game played in a cold-weather city is very smart.

Flacco was asked by Mike Klis of the Denver Post about having the Super Bowl played in presumably cold weather at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

"Yeah, I think it's retarded," Flacco said. "I probably shouldn't say that. I think it's stupid. If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one. Other than that I really don't 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."

This is Flacco's first Super Bowl appearance while in his fifth NFL season.
