    the pittburgh steelers are reinstalling their current surface famous for being one of the worst in the league with the same type they had this year. the broncos did the same thing last year and their playing field is ranked #8 in the league. i hope we get rid of doug brien, but he might be able to make a field goal there if need be.
    heres the link to the article: http://www.nfl.com/teams/story/PIT/8204150

    It would have been nice if your HC had the balls to at least try and get Brien into chip shot range.

    We won&#39;t have to worry about the Steelers next year. We will be too busy kicking the Patsie&#39;s @&#036;&#036;es in the playoffs. It doesn&#39;t matter what field is at Heinz becomes we&#39;ll be tearing down Gillette.

    They have done this every off-season in hopes of making the field more playable. They are trying extremely hard not to go to artificial turf but they may have to eventually. You see, they share the field with the Panthers (college team) and have area highschools play their playoff and championship games there as well. That was made part of the deal to build the new stadium as the taxpayers didn&#39;t want to foot the entire bill nor did the fans want an overload of PSL&#39;s etc. Thats the price of not having PSL&#39;s i guess.

    My question is:

    Why not just change to the field turf the Jets / Giants / Cowboys / Seahawks and a couple of other teams have?

    i hate astro turf. but the field turf looks pretty good & the players love it. with all those games,it might be the way to go.

    Good point. But most Steelers fans are traditional, we had artificial surface (carpet on concrete) for so damn long and we hated it. A good friend of mine put it best when he said "we are now playing football how it was meant to be played, on grass, in the mud, muck and puddles, that&#39;s football&#33;" Now we have a very small percentage of it artificial and it appears they will keep getting more and more as the years go by. Apparently the Rooney family is trying to do everything possible to keep real grass their as long as they can.

    Ah, Jets fans off season dreams and delusions continue. :lol: :lol:

    The Jets haven&#39;t beat the Pats in over two years.

    And nothing will change next year as well.

    No, the Jets can not beat the Pats next year because the Pats are a vastly superior team, from the top of the organization right down to the waterboy.

    You don&#39;t beat a dynasty with a team that is greatly inferior.

    Why do you think that will last forever? They&#39;ve lost both coordinators, which is more important than you think. People say "Bill Parcells never won without Bill Belichick," but now we are going to be hearing "Bill Belichick never won without Crennel and Weiss." No offense to him or anything, but who knows if Tedy Bruschi will play next year? Dynasties don&#39;t last forever, including your team&#39;s.

    Do you honestly think that other teams including the Jets are not going to improve and eventually dethrone the Pats?

    Plus, I hear our waterboy is a stud.

    If that is true, then why has one team won the Super Bowl 3 times in the last 4 years?

    Yep, no difference at all. :blink:
