Green Bay Packers 2011 Super Bowl Schedule May See Changes Due To Snow

The media, teams and fans have arrived in Dallas for the 2011 Super Bowl only to see....snow. Yes, there's snow on the ground in Texas, but this isn't something the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers will have to worry about for the actual game -- the Jerry Dome roof will be closed.

But this will cause some changes to the current schedule. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters on Monday that they'll be looking into moving their practice indoors.

"It's something that I am going to look at tomorrow. I am going to go to both facilities and look at the setup. Doug Collins, our Director of Security has been here. We talked about it on the plane ride down here today and we discussed it early in the week. With the weather, and the indoor facility, the surface and so forth we'll probably make that decision sometime later tomorrow."     

So it looks like they'll be going inside because of this snow.

The National Weather Service tells us it's 23 degrees with a "light freezing rain" in New Jersey, the site of the first cold weather Super Bowl in 2015. They also tell us it's 23 degrees with a "wintry mix" in Dallas, the site of this year's Super Bowl.

So why the uproar over an outdoor Super Bowl again?
