A Super Bowl in Denver? Broncos planning to bid

den-snow-AP-top10-600x405The NFL may need a new location to fill the bid for Super Bowl L, now that the Dolphins chances were ruined by the state legislature in Florida. The league wanted upgrades or a new stadium in Miami, and because the Dolphins can’t currently public funding, it looks like the Denver Broncos are going to step in and take a shot at land the Big Game.

The NFL is not afraid of bad weather. The Super Bowl will be played next Feburary in New Jersey at MetLife stadium, and it appears that 49ers are now the favorites to land the Super Bowl in 2016. But the Broncos want to get in on the process for future games, according to Mike Klis at the Denver Post:

Miami has hosted 10 of the first 47 Super Bowls — including the two that Peyton Manning played in with the Indianapolis Colts — and was bidding with San Francisco for Super Bowl L in 2016 with the losing bid city to compete with Houston for Super Bowl LI in 2017. So it looks good for San Francisco to host L and Houston to host LI. Which leaves Miami kicked back to LII (2018).

Everyone that wants to point to the freak storm last week in which Denver had accumulated snow fall, but lets chill out on that. Yes, Colorado is a hotspot for winter skiing, but actually averages less snowfall than the NYC-area in the month of February. With the Broncos possessing a slightly newer stadium with many of the luxuries that the NFL desires, it is very likely that they could land one of the games, especially if the NY/NJ game goes off without a hitch.

    Denver also has a compact downtown, a great transportation system and bars/restaurants aplenty. We’d rock a Super Bowl out.
