Roger Goodell: Atlanta Could Host A Super Bowl

It's just a level above hearsay, but I thought even the possibility of the city hosting the Super Bowl would be enough to perk your ears up.

The prolific Pat Yasinskas reports that in a conversation with season ticket holders, Roger Goodell issued a tentative endorsement of Atlanta hosting another big game. If you don't believe me, read this:

Although the last Atlanta Super Bowl came with some issues and a new open-air stadium could open a game to weather challenges, Goodell sounded as if another Super Bowl in Georgia is a possibility. But he stopped short of making any promise.

"You have a great community,’’ Goodell said. "I think the stadium Arthur is talking about is going to be a great stadium. Hopefully, it will be a great host for the Super Bowl in the future.’’

Of course, there's a catch. The remarks came after a discussion about the proposed new open-air stadium for the Falcons, which has drawn some interesting discussion among locals and fans. That's probably several years off, at minimum, so you may not want to rush out to save for Super Bowl tickets just yet.

Besides, I'd put my money on the Falcons getting to the Super Bowl on their own long before it comes to town. What say you?
