The NFL Players Association released its 2008 Playing Surfaces Opinion Survey Thursday and again the Bears’ homefield ranked horribly
The leaguewide survey conducted during team meetings between September and November named Soldier Field the fourth-worst grass playing field in the NFL, ahead of only Pittsburgh, Oakland and Miami. The three best were Arizona, Tampa Bay and San Diego. It wasn’t just road teams that were dogging the surface. Bears players chose Soldier Field as the worst grass surface in the league.
