Topical coincidence.
Yeah, when I looked earlier the players seem to prefer grass by a decent margin, but interestingly when the NFLPA did their last survey of playing surfaces preferred by players, they came up with this order. LINK

1) Tampa Bay

2) Seattle(Field Turf)

3) Carolina

4) Detroit(Field Turf)

5) Baltimore(Sportexe)

6) Arizona

7) Atlanta(Field Turf)

8) Jacksonville

9) Indianapolis(Field Turf)

10) San Diego

11) St.Louis(Field Turf)

12) Denver

13) Washington

14) Cincinnati(Field Turf)

15) Houston

16) New York Giants/Jets(Field Turf)

17) San Francisco

18) Green Bay

19) New Orleans(Sportexe)

20) Miami

21) Tennessee

22) Dallas

23) Philadelphia

24) Minnesota(Field Turf)

25) Buffalo(Astroplay)

26) Kansas City

27) Chicago

28) Cleveland

29) Pittsburgh

30) New England(pre-Field Turf, new this year)

31) Oakland


Something doesn't add up. It's pretty equal early on, but then grass dominates the bottom of the list.
