You've probably heard that NFL will have its first outdoor, cold-weather Super Bowl this season, and that the weather folks are expecting it to be bitterly cold in New York/New Jersey on Sunday, February 2.

But for the two teams that make Super Bowl XLVIII, Nike has unveiled a new line of sleek-looking, cold-weather gear that will be available for the players who are lucky enough to make the game.

The light, dark and silvery tones are, per Nike, "built to outfit players for all conditions, this collection draws inspiration from the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the icy weather of the Northeast, and the bright lights of the city."

That's all fine and good, but what about the coaches? Will 40- and 50-something men look as sleek and futuristic as the players do in this clothing? Suddenly, we're pulling really hard for the New England Patriots and Bill Belichick to make it, so he can ditch his homeless-man wardrobe in favor of the Aeroloft Summit Jacket.

In fact, we couldn't help but put together a hilariously-bad Photoshop of what that might look like.
