When Robert Griffin III went down with torn ligaments in his knee during the Redskins’ wild-card weekend loss, speculation began to arise about the conditions at FedEx Field. About a month after the incident forced RG3 into yet another knee surgery — he also had his ACL repaired in college — Ravens safety Ed Reed decided to chime in on the matter. “For all that money down in DC, you’d think their field would be better,” Reed said during Super Bowl Media Day festivities in New Orleans on Tuesday. “That field sucks. It does; it was all mud.” The Ravens visited the Redskins just weeks before the infamous playoff game in which RG3 initially injured his knee, so Reed was well aware of the gruesome conditions down in Washington, D.C. Reed and his Ravens teammates fortunately didn’t succumb to any field-related injuries during their dreadful trip to FedEx Field, and they’ll be as close to full health as they’ve been all season when they take the field at the Superdome on Sunday. Maybe Redskins owner Dan Snyder will open his wallet and make sure that having home field is actually an advantage next time, rather than an obstruction. Have a question for Luke Hughes?
