FedEx Field

Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

Should We Go To Field Turf?

No. Football should be played on real grass, even if it's dead.

IMO that's only realistic if they have an artificial turf. There's no known sorcery that can allow natural grass to be trampled on day in and day out and be pristine on Sunday... He will either have to invest in something artificial or lose money in wh*ring out his stadium...

fair enough - I am just VERY disappointed with how that field looked on TV - it was not a pretty sight ...

We'll most likely have to wait and see if that has any effect on the preparation and upkeep of the field next season
until Dan Snyder stops meddling and let's NFL people make ALL the decisions on who coaches and plays, we will be a mediocre franchise
each season starts with high hopes & expectations; we finish each season knowing that we should have done better

Not long ago, this franchise liked to have a grass surface for different reasons ...
with the advent of a much quicker offense (running and passing), we may need to look into the best surface for that
