Another devil's advocate here.
I read somewhere that the Steelers had the best home winning percentage (.722) in the NFL between 1970 and 2009. That's 31 years on artificial turf and 9 years on hybrid. If this is true, it shows that home field advantage was as good at 3 Rivers as it is at Heinz Field so the nature of the field has no significant impact on the results.
