Redskins take steps to improve FedEx Field

Griffin AP

The bad news is that the Redskins won’t be replacing the playing surface at FedEx Field with FieldTurf or some other synthetic option.  The good news is that they’ll take meaningful steps to improve it.

ESPN 980 reports, via CSNWashington.com, that the field has undergone a “major renovation” that includes an improved drainage system.  Also, the middle of the field will be re-sodded after the Redskins host the Chargers on November 4.

Eighteen days later, the Redskins play two prime-time games in six games at FedEx Field.

“Once the [2013] schedule comes out, our people are ready to commit to a schedule so we have some new sod for the end of the year,” G.M. Bruce Allen previously vowed.  “We think that is going to address the playing field in December and hopefully January.”

January gave the Redskins the biggest problem in 2012, when it appeared that the grounds crew simply painted the dirt green.

    No need to worry skins fans. No games will be play in DC beyond December.

    It would be a wise investment. Otherwise RG3 will be taking steps to the training room.
    Seriously even with a new field he has gotta learn to protect himself because he is literally all they got.

  3. seaeagle707 says: Apr 23, 2013 6:02 PM

    You won’t need the field in January, trust me. You’ve got to win the Div. to get home field. You won’t, New York will. Don’t forget to remove all of that dead grass you killed with green paint.

  9. seatownballers says: Apr 23, 2013 6:09 PM

    Holy crap. Ive been pleading with logicalvoice to spend his time to plead skins front office to fix that field. Rg3 still gonna get hurt though. Lol

  10. dwats says: Apr 23, 2013 6:09 PM

    Won’t make a difference. Bobknee3 will be watching all of the games from your wooden shed on the sideline.

  11. justintuckrule says: Apr 23, 2013 6:09 PM

    When they sell off little containers of the old field for souvenir, I call dibs on the location where RG left pieces of his LCL. That portion should be worth like $6 one day.

  12. kissmytaintpatriotsrule says: Apr 23, 2013 6:09 PM

    There goes RG3’s other knee. This story illustrates perfectly why the Patriots are a class organization and the Redskins will always be bottom feeders.

    They’re taking small, careful steps. So they don’t stub their toe on a rock. Or trip over an abandoned tire and break a leg. Or fall into a gopher hole. Or disturb the nesting quail.

  17. blueballz77 says: Apr 23, 2013 6:12 PM

    Try using grass seed instead of pebbles.
    And get that Scottish dude to feed your lawn all a moot point, I really don’t think Cousins will scrambling much in the Redskins 16 game season

    Next Step.. ban Logicalvoicesays from all home games and television broadcast because in his mind the skins are already the champs

  19. thirdistheworrd says: Apr 23, 2013 6:14 PM

    The greatest compliment you can give a team is for the first four comments on an article to be written by fans of other teams.

    San Fransisco fans know what I’m talking about: they spent all last Summer being told that their season was a fluke. Seemed like it worked out pretty well for them: their 2011 “fluke” carried them to within 3 points of a 2012 Lombardi.

    Now I’m not saying the Redskins have anywhere near the talent of the Niners, but really, keep it coming– the DMV loves your confidence in the Redskins.

  20. miguelromerorhpat says: Apr 23, 2013 6:14 PM

  21. hater79 says: Apr 23, 2013 6:15 PM

    What were the Giants doing during the playoffs last year?

    Sitting at home on their #sses doing Manning face.

    BTW Joe Flacco is ten times the QB Eli is.

  22. bluepower77 says: Apr 23, 2013 6:15 PM

    uhhohh!! the best they can do is “resod”!!! what he really means is whe got a new shipment of green paint. Guess there happy with a playoff appearance and don’t think Rg3s worth ten games starting… as long as we keep selling those Jerseys though…

  23. squrlmoos1 says: Apr 23, 2013 6:16 PM

    Maybe the Redskins will do you a favor and have their three Super Bowl Trophies, so your players to know what they look like.

  26. kylexitron says: Apr 23, 2013 6:17 PM

    The state of the field they made the Seahawks and Redskins play on was simply embarrassing, especially for a playoff game of that caliber.

  27. trevor123698 says: Apr 23, 2013 6:17 PM

    If you seriously believe the field caused RG3’s injury you are insane. 50 other men played on taht field no problem. Chris Cleomons suffered an ACL tear the week after this game in a dome. So much for that nonsense about RG3’s injury being caused by the field

  28. prosportswashington says: Apr 23, 2013 6:17 PM

    People blame the playing surface for the injuries, but really all you’re more likely to have happen is a muddy jersey. Artifical turf causes alot more ligament/tissue injuries like ACL/MCL tears

  29. firestarter0728 says: Apr 23, 2013 6:18 PM

    Fixing the field is a lot easier than fixing the team that plays on it.

  30. commonsensedude says: Apr 23, 2013 6:18 PM

    Wow. The fans of the no-playoff Giants are mouthing off. I’ll bet as soon as the grass starts growing, John Mara will tell Goodell to punish the ‘Skins by sneaking in at night and digging it up.

  31. therealraider says: Apr 23, 2013 6:19 PM

    They will just water down the field real good before the game.. kinda like baseball does on the infield diamond. Problem solved.

  32. allidoiswin55 says: Apr 23, 2013 6:20 PM

    Just needs to last until xmas, then the end of the season and the end of the skins season. This team is not a viable playoff team unless RG3 can heal up.

    Cousins held the fort down but they play a tougher schedule, I don’t expect him to win many games and the teams not strong enough to have just a game manager to win.

    Wishing RG3 well, he is a great talent. But keep your wishes practical skins fans you bought into the hype and he jeopardized his career bc he felt obligated, let him heal no rush.

  33. seattlecoug says: Apr 23, 2013 6:20 PM

    No way the NFL should give that joke of a franchise 8 home games. bobby griffin should go to the CFL with Tebow.

    He will spend a boat load of money of overpaid players but wont spend the money to improve the field to keep them players healthy?? Quit being cheap and fix the field and you dont have to worry about sod in January.

  36. logicalvoicesays says: Apr 23, 2013 6:22 PM

    Giant fans are so attention starving. The Yankees and Jets get more Coverage. Heck I think the local soccer team gets more press. So you resort to coming to Papa Redskins posts to get attention hmm? I don’t blame you. We are superior and more popular. #EnjoywatchinguswinonPrimetime

  42. 28skins28 says: Apr 23, 2013 6:27 PM

    why does everybody keep saying that the turf was to blame for rg3’s injury,

    It was a 320 pound defensive tackle hurling into his knee snapping it sideways not the turf.

    anybody who thinks his second knee injury wasn’t related to the one he suffered a few weeks earlier is only kidding himself.

    Back in the 70’s and 80’s when men were men almost every field was much worse than the one at fed ex and you didn’t see acl tears all over the place and the ones that happened weren’t blamed on the turf.

    How did that Super Bowl the Skins played in back in 1992 turn out?
    I think the Skins set a Super Bowl record for points in a quarter. How many record do the horsies have in Super Bowls? I mean besides losing 3 straight.
    How did Peyton do in that playoff game against the crows? The regular season doesn’t count homey.

    Super Bowl stink lasts five years. You can’t claim “what have you done lately” when we won the world championship just over 1 year ago. Otherwise, you sound like disgruntled Eagles fans. At least they have a QB.

    Just have the field ready for Kap vs. RG3. That is going to be one hell of a match-up, but I don’t want to lose any of my guys on that crap they play on there.

    I know that some Skins fans (actually only a few) can be annoying, but the hate is insane. If I don’t know the league and just read this post I’d think the Skins were champs for the last 5 years. What’s with the hate? I love watching RG3 play and hearing the young man speak, why does everyone want to see him fail? Sad.

    Reading this garbage I why I rarely post now.

  58. raiders85 says: Apr 23, 2013 6:41 PM

    It’s sad when a Raiders fan can say another stadium is a dump and that’s exactly what FedEx field is the NFL should be embarassed they allowed a playoff game to be played in that toilet and use player safety when it benefits them

  59. bhindenemylines says: Apr 23, 2013 6:41 PM

    Why are they waiting so long? If the schedule came out last week they have just under 5 months before the start of the season.

    And spring time is when you’re supposed to plant/transplant sod to it’s new location. Should be more than enough time for the sod to take. Doesn’t make any sense.

    If they were serious about fixing the field they would have had everything planned and ready to go by now.

    All the redskins have is RGIII? Hmm, I guess having a running back who rushed for more than 1600 yars is nothing. How many yards did your team’s running back rush for? Facepalms all around.

  73. trevor123698 says: Apr 23, 2013 6:55 PM

    Judging from that picture, I don’t think RG3 has the whole “Tebowing” thing down yet. He needs to work on his form.
    But seriously, I’m not a Redskins fan, but RG3 seems to be a class act, and I wish him well.

  76. justintuckrule says: Apr 23, 2013 7:00 PM

    Serious for a second. In a division where the top 3 teams are usually separated by no more than 2 games, take it from a Giants’ fan who knows a thing or two about playing the first place schedule. Those 2 games against the other division winners make all the difference.

    This year, we’ve got Seattle (at home) and Carolina. You got SF and Atlanta.

    RG or no RG, sod or no sod, you’ve already got an uphill battle to win the division again.

    Its all good for divisional fans to come in here and hate on the Skins (that’s expected), but damn there are way more than just divisional fans hating. It gets annoying to comb through that crap for useful posts. If you are going to hate, at least be funny and creative.

  89. eatitfanboy says: Apr 23, 2013 7:27 PM

    I don’t understand the insistence on trying to make natural grass work.

    The new artificial surfaces are as soft and pliant as natural turf and just as safe. They also cost much less to maintain over time.

    They do cost a little more upfront to install, which I guess is what Snyder is balking at.

  90. jebdamone says: Apr 23, 2013 7:30 PM

    UMD Terps put field turf on their football field last year and lost their 4 scholarship QB’s for the year with foot and knee injuries.

    Field turf might be cheaper to maintain than grass, but safer? Not necessarily.

    I’d love to take a poll to see who is the most and publicized team on PFT, ESPN, and the NFl Network. It’s gotta be the Redskins
    We talk about their QB and what he had for breakfast.
    We get updates about their field weekly.
    We talk about their owner, their coach, and even their name.
    Fact is; the Redskins get more pub than the 49ers and Ravens combined!
    The Redskins must be the ‘New” America’s team based on the interest from fans who absolutely HATE THEM-which of course is a sign of respect.
    And now we have a PFT Legend in logicalvoice.
    Thanks Haters, for all the respect you show the Redskins

  97. h1ndrix says: Apr 23, 2013 7:46 PM

    All the hate stems from the fact the Redskins are now the premier team in the league and Rg3 is the face of it. You do realize every time you turn on a prime time game next year you will either see Rg3 throwing a 60 yd td or Alfred Morris bowling over someone at the goal line. Frustrating if you’re not a Skins fan but an exciting year ahead for those of us that are.

  99. thraiderskin says: Apr 23, 2013 7:51 PM

    I would think the Seattle fans would want the Skins to keep that turf, seeing as had RGIII not been hurt, they were about to be laughed out of the playoffs.
    RGIII got hurt from a 330 pound beast hitting the side of his leg at full speed, Clemons got owned by blades of grass and dirt, who is more glass?

    FedEx field is a blight on the entire NFL. the NFL dictates just about everything every team does so why can’t it force them to fix that piece o’ s***? Maybe FedEx should pull its sponsorship until something is done. I sure wouldn’t want my company name associated with that field.

    I seem to remember the league making both the Pats and the Steelers resod their fields a few years ago when they were in rough shape.

    Hopefully if the Redskins let their field get as bad as it did last year the league will do what it should have last January and made them resod it before the playoffs.

    Serious for a second. In a division where the top 3 teams are usually separated by no more than 2 games, take it from a Giants’ fan who knows a thing or two about playing the first place schedule. Those 2 games against the other division winners make all the difference.

    This year, we’ve got Seattle (at home) and Carolina. You got SF and Atlanta.

    RG or no RG, sod or no sod, you’ve already got an uphill battle to win the division again.

    Seriously for a second…A THING OR TWO?? lol realize there has been more seasons in the NFL than the last 6 years. All the teams in the East have had their turns through the years..We have all had to play 1st place schedules..(this includes the Cardinals who also used to be in the East). Night be before your time I’m guessing…Bottom line..NFC East in that way every year…Your not telling or “teaching” us something new.

    UMD Terps put field turf on their football field last year and lost their 4 scholarship QB’s for the year with foot and knee injuries.

    Field turf might be cheaper to maintain than grass, but safer? Not necessarily.

    First off, I didn’t say safer, I said just as safe. And it is.

    And you probably should have tried that argument with someone who doesn’t have ties to the region. Caleb Rowe was injured on the road. CJ Brown was injured in practice. Perry Hills got injured on an illegal block and had nothing to do with the turf. Only Devin Burn’s injury could even be remotely blamed on the turf.

    Nice try.

    @levi – to Giants’ fans, winning the division and doing nothing else isn’t meaningful.

    This is like when we won the division and got smoked at home by the Panthers in Eli’s first full year as starter. Do you think we celebrate that year like you dopes are celebrating this division title???? We knew bigger things were in store for us. You must know that last year was “it”.

    For all the people saying it isn’t the field, keep in mind that at least 3 big injuries have happened on that field.

    RG3, Adrian Peterson and Chris Clemons.

    Players say the field is horrible, the only people that think that field is fine is Redskin management.

    And wethog66, what you don’t seem to realize is that the fedex field is even worse than the new terps field turf. Just because players got hurt on new field turf doesn’t make that a worse choice than fedex field.

    Players should boycott the Redskin games until the field is FIXED.

    Valid Point officialgame. We’re obnoxious as fans due to years of being down. We are just releasing the frustration of 20 years of futilty. Most Redskin Fans are so giddy we can’t contain ourselves, but to hear the utter vitriol about RG3, for reason I can’t explain, only makes us more obnoxious. Yes, we unnecessarily “troll-up” the site, but to hear AFC and NFC West fans hate on skinfans is obsurd!

Nobody pays attention that Peirre Garcon (NO), Carricker and Orakpo (St.l) was hurt at away stadiums. But RG3 gets hurt and it’s the owner’s fault.

    And the amount of hate for a team is surpassed by who?
    Does almost every article about every team almost get 100 comments on PFT- with most (3/4) of the comments are negative?

    This year, we’ve got Seattle (at home) and Carolina. You got SF and Atlanta.

    This article left off the most important part of what Chris Russle reported. The Skins are completely replacing their field this summer 2.5 months before the first preseason game. This isn’t just sodding, it is a complete field replacement all the way down to and including the drainage tubes.

    Then they plan on re-sodding the portion of the field between the hashes from end zone to end zone 18 days prior to the start of their final 4 regular season games.

    They aren’t re-sodding the entire field because the area outside of the hashes doesn’t get as much wear and it will help hold the new sod in place.

    What happended to Redskin fan they used to have Class and Smarts? HOORAY you made the playoffs last year. The Detroit Lions made the playoffs the year before that and nobody cares. Your team hasn’t won a SUPERBOWL in over 20 years. You bash the GIANTS yet they have won 4 Superbowls to the Redskins 3 (And lets not forget that 2 of them happended during strike shortened seasons) and the GIANTS are the only team to represent the NFC East in the SuperBowl in years. Redskin fan step back and quit being like those classless non winning Eagle fans.

    I enjoy the negative comments, positive comments, all that says is that they are RELEVANT. And it’s all I could ask for! HTTRelevance again! LOL

    Amen skinsfan91! I don’t believe the haters even read the posts? All they want to do is display negatives. Which isn’t the worst part…when they practically wish injury on 22 or 23 year polls players is really sickening. There’s no denying that RGIII is an NFL phenomenon and the Washington Redskins will be a NFC superpower for years to come. The NFL knows this, that’s why they have more prime time games than any other team in the league. It’s time all the haters realize the facts and understand this. And 95% of these nay sayers never even mention their team or their accomplishments. Everyone fails to realize that we have 5NFLchampionships…37′,42′,XVII,XXII, and XXVI. And I’ve strong hopes that RGIII and a Alfred Morris will bring us back to the glory days with 2 or 3 more super bowls. God willing, we aren’t plagued with injury or disaster that I see these pricks desperately wishing for.

    Of course I remember. Did you know that he was the last Redskin to appear in a Super Bowl? Albeit, his number was a sticker on the Giants’ helmet in 07′ but that’s just being nitpicky.

    I don’t see it as being nit picky. That’s a fact. Such as I’ve this question of fact for you…where is the big blue now? I do believe they’re right near the bottom with the eagles. We are NFC E. CHAMPIONS and we’ll continue forward building on that as y’all will continue the downward spiral that will surely not get better anytime soon.

    Didn’t AP have his injury there? Or was that the twisted ankle, which led to the ACL?

    Yes, that is where AP was injured.
