Heinz Field has a natural grass surface, which can be problematic in adverse weather.

Don't worry J-Tuck you got this. If the game comes down to a field goal everyone in Baltimore knows you've got ice in your veins. You are the next Matt Stover and I'll be wearing your jersey tomorrow night in support.

One of,if not the best,decisions by the Ravens. Keeping Tucker. Hope he stays healthy and has a long, great career w/us.

Why is there not a minimum standard of requirement a NFL stadium turf must meet? Pittsburgh's turf is usually trash but it isn't like they can't fix this.

Loving the Frank Sinatra reference!

Anyway, I'm confident the Ravens can go for it on 4th and short if the environment proves to be too unkickable.

Honestly, I am surprised that you (Poe) got second. After the draft I thought your team was doomed for failure.

You get used to it. Even posts that don't violate the rules aren't safe.

Tuck-Man is the man,our man, B'Mores man,clutch man.... you name it. If you can nail 'em in front of 100,000 in the pressure cooker of Texas football,then Pittsburgh will be a piece of cake, cold weather or not.

The Steelers play real football on real grass.
Well, at least we don't have a dome. Those dome guys are the real cheaters.

Maybe, depending on the distance.

Display name,

That is just it, it isn't grass. It is mud or dirt at the best of times. There is a big difference between falling on dirt versus grass when your knee hits. The NFL is so concerned about player safety that it would make sense to have stricter guidelines. Not just this field but many stadiums that have dangerous turf. I just think there should be some kind of standard in place. That and the field shouldn't be allowed to be abused by other teams having games in the stadium. I understand all the arguments but if it compromises the fields in question than it is an issue. Thats all.

Can't really say i feel sorry for cundif and im glad we got tucker. We are behind ya. Its not that he missed the afc kick he got beat in training camp fair out right. What hid did in washington was terrible. We usually cut our people at the right time even though it hurts, Like heap and gregg etc.. unlike other teams we develope and draft and the next man up does his job. Its the circle of life in the nfl. someone younger more hungry and less pay is gonna be up your but trying to take your spot preform or cya

I know I mentioned this before a couple of times over the years, but I knew the fellow who supplied the soil for the field in Pburg. It was river silt. And every time it gets wet it becomes marsh-like. It's very soft with absolutiely no aggragate in it. Even the sod won't stick to it and often slides or comes off in sections where laid. The job was done using competitive bidding process and the low man won. It is soft though if one falls down on it. That's about the only good news about this playing field. And whoever wrote that there should be an nfl standard is dead-on.
