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
Scot McCloughan and this FO will continue to rebuild on the basis that we cannot have enough good players

2016 is a big year for Kirk Cousins and Jay Gruden - HAIL to the Redskins

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
