(KMOV/AP) -- A quote by Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell is getting a lot of attention.

The die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan called the NFL's decision to postpone Sunday night's game ,versus the Vikings, to Tuesday night due to the snowstorm, "an absolute joke."

Rendell went on to tell FOX  "I was looking forward to this. It would have been a real experience. This is what football is all about."

"We're becoming a nation of wussies," Rendell said.

Some areas of the northeast got several feet of snow from the same storm system that dumped several inches in the St. Louis area on Christmas.

What do you think?  Is Governor Rendell right to feel the game should have gone on, despite the conditions?
