Anyone with a pair of eyes could tell FedEx Field was in terrible condition toward the end of the NFL season. It was especially bad for the playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks. So bad that Seahawks full back Michael Robinson got out his cell phone and took a video of it before the game started. He can be seen in the video below digging his shoe into the dirt and saying “this is terrible” and “I’m surprised they didn’t dump sand in the middle.”
RG3 took a huge hit to his knee in the Ravens game, and I doubt the
Redskins facilities helped out very much in the coming weeks. He
clearly couldn't run side to side at all, and it's possible even if he
tried, he would have slipped and busted his ass. Late in the Seahawks game a bad snap caused RG3 to tear his ACL And LCL which required surgery. Hopefully they can get him back before the start of next season. Get your field maintenance together

BEST OF MAXIM
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman says he is a good guy and that he doesn't know why people find reasons to dislike him.
When Seattle took on Washington in the NFC Wild Card playoff matchup Richard Sherman was all over the field. Although he did not have a direct impact in the box score he was locking down receivers and laying licks on Redskins players all night long.
Sherman is known as a lock-down defender and is arguably the best cornerback in the NFL this year. The Redskins dominated the first...
Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson has already surpassed fellow first year signal callers Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. While they were getting eliminated in their game, Wilson was downfield blocking for Marshawn Lynch on a touchdown run.
It was impressive to see Wilson sprint past everyone and spring his running back. Every week he does something the other two rookies haven’t...
Zach Miller came to Seattle in 2011 with a big contract and a penchant for catching a lot of passes.
After the tight end spent his first season with the Seahawks mainly as a blocker and catching very few balls, there were plenty of questions about whether the team made a smart investment.
If they weren't before, those questions were gone after Miller's performance in last...
Ever wonder how it might have been?
There are a few “what if” questions that come to mind right off the bat when it comes to the Seattle Seahawks, and I will touch on those for sure, but I want to take a look at some other questions that have had me wondering over the years.
The two big ones are Drew Bledsoe, and Super Bowl XL.
Of course they are, right? Was there any other bigger...
We’ve all heard by now how bad the grass really was at FedEx Field last Sunday for the wild card round matchup between the Washington Redskins and the Seattle Seahawks.
The field, which looked dangerous from the get-go, proved to be harmful. Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III reaggravated a knee injury that led to surgery, and the Seahawks moved on to the divisional round...
The wild card weekend is over,it's time to separate the men from the boys. Weaknesses that can be hidden on a normal Sunday, will be exposed like George Clinton at an insurance seminar. Atlanta has been very good, dominant at times (just ask the Giants). What does 13-3 and the number one seed in the playoffs buy you? Not a lot of respect if you are the Falcons.People view them...
It starts with the coach
In a classic NFL birds of prey matchup, the Seattle Seahawks are set to take on the Atlanta Falcons in a win-or-go-home playoff battle.
Here is how head coach Pete Carroll will keep the Falcons grounded and winless in the postseason since quarterback Matt Ryan joined the dirty birds.
Marshawn Lynch should carry the ball at least 25 times against the Atlanta...
The Falcons and Matt Ryan have the worst match-up against Seattle if they want to get their first playoff win.
The Wildcard games disappointed for one reason, quarterback play. That will not be a problem this weekend. The marquee quarterbacks are off their bye weeks and are ready to lead their teams onto the field.
Here is a look at the games and my selection of the winners...
For years, stats geeks and old-schoolers have been fighting over the importance numbers and trends possess when it comes to predicting future outcomes. The champion of the stats side of that argument is Nate Silver, who comes from the world of sabermetrics and who also happened to use his advanced system to predict the winner of all 50 states and all but one Senate race in November...
