Philadelphia Eagles considering Super Bowl bid


When the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos take the field on Sunday for Super Bowl XLVIII, there will be millions of fans around the nation watching from the comfort of their own home with a table full of munchies and snacks and their full attention on the game.

Along with the fans, there are a few teams who will be watching to see how big of a success the cold weather Super Bowl will be, including the Philadelphia Eagles.

According to reports, the Eagles will be looking to see how everything plays out on Super Bowl Sunday because Eagles team president Don Smolenski said that they are considering a Super Bowl bid of their own.

If it goes well, that’s definitely a possibility,” Smolenski said, via the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“We’re very proud of Lincoln Financial Field. We do think it’s a great facility, and we think over the years that’s been evident. It would be a sense of pride. Philadelphia is a world-class city with world-class facilities, and it’s a great sports town. It would be a chance to showcase Philadelphia on an international stage.”

The Eagles will also be undergoing a $125 million renovation plan just in time for a potential Super Bowl bid.

It appears that weather will not end up as a factor in this year’s big game, so if that continues to be the case we could see another East Coast team looking to make a bid on the NFL’s biggest game.
