Good God I hope we get some fieldturf in there. I used to be a big fan of having the real grass field, but it's gotten to be such a pain in the butt.

Suck it up and get the fake stuff already!!

The field looked great this weekend. I say keep the grass and replace it like they did this year.

Here's a crazy idea....why not write PITTSBURGH in both end zones....works for both teams.

I say stick with the grass most of the Steelers all said they prefer grass because it gives them better traction and grip and whatever the steelers want i want ha!

It's also an NCAA rule for teams who share stadiums with NFL Teams.

I'd take that idea when Pitt is in season.

Sounds like some of you should apply for Facility Manager of Heinz Field! I dont play on the field so whatever works for the players: turf or grass, then I leave it up to the experts! And, besides who am I to say anything, there the ones that makes the thousands of dollars per year.
