I completely agree. This a really BAD idea. The NFL is one of the strongest brands in America and the NFL usually doesn't make many mistakes, but I believe this is a huge mistake.
At the Super Bowl the game should be the story, not the weather.
I hope the weather totally sucks, wind, rain, sleet and snow, with bad ice on the NJ Turnpike so the stadium is 1/2 empty.
The good news is that we can all look forward to the next Super Bowl being hosted in Santa Clara.
