    They'd better if they value RG-Knee.

    That "field" looked more like a cow or horse pasture.
    This is the NFL for God's sake. Ridiculous and probably the cause of several leg injuries.

    Whoa there, HPD 5-0!
    I've seen WAY better cow pastures than that pock strewn battle field the teams were sent out on. Criminy, my ankles hurt just looking at it...

    Fed Ex Field
    That field is criminal. Criminal neglect!!! Every NFL player that loses a season there should be double compensated for the neglect.

    For painted dirt. Wasn't that the same field in The Sandlot?

    If I were Goodell....
    ... no NFL games now/future on Fedex until it meets minimum NFL field standards. Assuming there are "standards," you hope. That could be a lot of away games for the Redkins, maybe.

    Field standards
    Makes one question what those standards are because, like a previous poster, I was watching that game and thinking it looked similar to the dirt in a pasture as well. For their coach to commen like he is just oblivious to the fact that it was that bad is just embarassing. Take care of your talent, Shanahan! Shame on you for thinking there is no problem with playing you guys (and playing your already injured guys) on that garbage.

    Remember Shanahan...
    ...was the guy who thought his QB was good to go in the second half; maybe there is a link there.

    If the want turf so bad.
    Do what the Mariners do. Have portable grow lights they move around the field over the grass. Then they can have lush, full, thick green grass just like Safeco.
