It seems we're all in agreement that the field is in terrible shape, the next question should be which option are we going to go with.

I'm not sure I want Fieldturf in there with all the rumors about injuries it causes. Even if they just re-sodded the field and brought a couple natural grass experts in to work their magic I'd be ok with that.
I just feel like the Skins are a grass team. Always have been and always should. The idea of having an artificial surface seems weird to me although today's surfaces seem to be a lot better than they used to be.

Seattle should be upset after suffering those injuries. Of course, had the conditions been better, Clemons and the kicker would be perfectly healthy and watching the Redskins in the divisional playoffs.

I love grass. But like you said upkeep is essential and it should not look like that in a playoff game.

Not until we get a secondary!

They need all of the help they can get. The dirt field helps our safeties more than it hurts our WRs.

Re: Field Condition

Well, it's kind of looking like the media might be "forcing" a change at Fedex in regards to the field, whether if we like it or not:

They use real grass there

The stadium recently installed removable AstroTurf to be used for non-NFL events. For Texans games, workers piece together more than 1,200, 8-by-8-foot palettes of real grass with forklifts. Hartmann caught his left foot in a seam between palettes and was placed on injured reserve. The lawsuit says Hartmann suffered a "significant and career-threatening injury."

Re: Field Condition

Well, if it really does help to cut down on injuries, especially serious injures, then I'm all for it. It would certainly make Fed Fex Field look better.
