"Washington strolled to the NFC championship, outscoring their two playoff opponents by a combined total of 48 points. Their domination was more than impressive, it was historic. The 1991 Redskins boasted the largest average margin of victory among all Super Bowl champions."

Snyder does not skimp on his team; not on salaries for players and coaches; not on flights or hotels; not on anything. But someone on the football side has to make the request. In past years, FedEx Field normally got new turn in the middle of the year. Why that did not happen this year, I don't know. I've heard there was no 3-4 week window to lay sod and let the roots knit into the soil because of the college games, concerts, and rainy weather. You cannot just lay down new sod and play football the next day.
You do realize that Snyder spends more money on his team than almost any owner in the league, short of maybe Jerry Jones? Dumb football spending maybe. Cheap owner, hell no. Go check out what other owners spend on their teams.

It is not like the field has been horrible for years. This was a bad year, granted. But watch candlestick park this weekend. Won't be much better if at all. Heinz Field has been horrible for several years in a row, although I can't speak to this season. That was becuase the High School football championships were played on the grass surface. Four games in two days followed by professional football games destroyed that field for a couple years in a row.
There is no doubt that the Redskins will evaluate the field and decide what needs to be done to avoid this. IF Snyder is going to host collegiate games and concerts he almost has to go to an artificial surface or hybrid. Clearly, the grass turf cannot put up with that much continuous action.
"That's not enough rings," Griffin said. "We've got to get more."
"Alright, Sammy," Griffin said. "I'll see you later."
Denver certainly has a nice looking hybrid field today.
Even Candlestick's field looked like it held up better than FedEx.
