Default Vikings-Eagles Game Postponed

Vikings-Eagles moved to Tuesday night

(AP) 6 hours ago

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Are you ready for some Tuesday Night Football?

The NFL moved the Vikings at Eagles game from Sunday night to Tuesday because of an expected blizzard that could dump more than a foot of snow on Philadelphia.

The game will be played at 8 p.m. EST., and televised nationally by NBC.

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter declared a snow emergency as of 2 p.m. EST Sunday.

"We are urging all Philadelphians, please be careful, please be safe," the mayor told reporters in a news conference at City Hall on Sunday morning.

The decision to postpone the game came shortly after noon before there was any snow accumulation in Philadelphia.

In announcing the postponement, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said:

"Due to public safety concerns in light of today's snow emergency in Philadelphia, tonight's Vikings-Eagles game has been postponed. Because of the uncertainty of the extent of tonight's storm and its aftermath, the game will be played on Tuesday night at 8 p.m. This will allow sufficient time to ensure that roads, parking lots and the stadium are fully cleared. The National Weather Service states that a winter storm warning in Philadelphia remains in effect until 1 pm on Monday."

Eagles coach Andy Reid agreed with the league's decision.

"We're OK with it," he said. "We're organized and prepared for this, and we completely support what the league did from a safety standpoint for everybody. We got the guys out of the hotel and home, and they'll come back for a walkthrough tomorrow and then to the hotel, and it will be just like a Saturday night before a Sunday game, just a normal Saturday night-Sunday schedule."

The Vikings already have had two home games affected by the weather this season. Their game against the Giants on Dec. 12 was postponed a day after Minneapolis got 15 inches of snow. It was then moved to Detroit when the Metrodome roof collapsed.

Their game against Chicago the following week was played at the University of Minnesota's outdoor stadium because of the damaged roof.

"What else can you say? Just add this to the list for the 2010 season," Vikings defensive end Jared Allen said. "But you know what, we have to remain together as a team and keep a positive mind frame. It's important to be a professional and be ready to play on Tuesday night."

Minnesota (5-9) is out of playoff contention, but the Eagles (10-4) can clinch the NFC East with a win or if the Giants lose at Green Bay on Sunday afternoon.

"We have every reason, because of the season, to say, 'This is the last straw and I'm checking out,'" Vikings interim coach Leslie Frazier said. "But this is the NFL and you can't do that. You have to show up ready to play Tuesday night and that's what we're trying to get the young guys and everybody to understand."

NBC will broadcast the regular "Football Night in America" from 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m. EST followed by a "Minute to Win It" repeat from 8:30 to 10 p.m. and then a "Law and Order" repeat until 11 p.m.

The Eagles went to their practice facility for workouts and film study and then went home. They'll now have just four days off before playing Dallas (5-10) next Sunday in a game that could determine whether they get a first-round bye.

"I don't think it's a problem," Reid said. "I think we'll be all right. We've had Monday games, Sunday night games, we had a Thursday game, so we've been through a lot of this already, and that will help us. We'll be fine."

Many players wished the game wasn't moved. They made their feelings known via Twitter.

"It's only snow!!!! Let us play... It must b alot of fun... I'm ready let's get it on!!" wide receiver DeSean Jackson wrote.

The game originally was supposed to be played at 1 p.m., but was switched because of the flex scheduling.

"Thank you flex-scheduling....," guard Todd Herremans wrote.

Quarterback Michael Vick looked at the positive side.

"Just a few more days to get ready !" he wrote.

There won't be any conflicts with the Flyers or 76ers because both teams are on the road. However, a Disney on Ice show Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center was canceled.

It's awesome that we get Tuesday night football this week. I have to wake up at 3 am tomorrow morning, so I couldn't have stayed up to watch it, anyway.

I guess you could say the vikings giants game...Since TCF Bank Stadium was full of snow and the metrodome roof collapsed due to snow...it had to be postponed. Not to mention that the giants didn't bring cold weather gear.

Did everyone see the Pennsylvania governor's comments on the postponement of the game?

Quote:
"We've become a nation of wusses. The Chinese are kicking our butt in everything," governor Ed Rendell said. "If this was in China do you think the Chinese would have called off the game? People would have been marching down to the stadium, they would have walked and they would have been doing calculus on the way down."
The man sounds like Michael Scott.
