During the Washington Redskins 2013 playoff appearance much drama surrounded the injury to quarterback Robert Griffin III, but what went unnoticed is how the poor field conditions contributed to RG3’s torn ACL. Throughout the early goings of the 2014 off-season, Washington has focused on fixing the kinks in management’s armor, yet once the dust has settled, I fully anticipate owner Daniel Snyder addressing the field concerns. Snyder has expressed great understanding over upgrading the team’s practice facilities, and now it’s time for the Redskins to have a field that doesn’t hurt their own team.
Most NFL franchises have changed the surface of the stadium from normal grass to an artificial combination of grass and turf. This new footing allows for easier drainage, and therefore, a more durable surface.
We all know Daniel Snyder has money. What we, also, know is Mr. Snyder knows how to waste that money. One thing that wouldn’t go unused is a new turf field for the Redskins to build a winning atmosphere around.
