Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones thinks a Super Bowl should be played in the Atlanta Falcons' new stadium

Fact: Jerry Jones will watch you whip but will look away when you nae nae

The Atlanta Falcons' fancy new stadium has elicited mixed reviews since its construction began. From those who think it's a complete waste of money that will price out the average fan to those who can't wait to drink at a 100 yard bar, it's a real phenomenon.

Never one to hide his opinions, super rich NFL owner Jerry Jones thinks it's pretty neat. In fact, if you ask Jones, it's definitely good enough for a Super Bowl.

"Well, that stadium has Super Bowl written all over it," Jones said, via Vaughn McClure of "It is nothing short of magnificent, and I'm not exaggerating. With the entire franchise, [owner Arthur Blank] has put his heart and soul into it. He'll do anything to win. And he hasn't spared the rod on that stadium. He has, just every step of the way, expanded the scope of it by making it just as good as good can be."

I can't see how this doesn't play out favorably for the Falcons. Sure, it's a lot of money. And sure, they're actually building the first spaceship to Mars. But if all the hype is even 50 percent accurate, this place is going to blow minds. Your thoughts?
