"Vince Lombardi would be spinning in his grave," Ed Rendell said in a live interview with a television station.
Despite concern about the level of snow and how it would affect those traveling to the game, Rendell was strongly opposed to the delay.
"I think it is a joke," Rendell said. "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."
He later said, "This is no way, shape or form a blizzard!"
The game was originally scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday, but was flexed into the primetime spot on NBC. It will now be played Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
