Default Reliant's Turf

What is up with the turf tonight? I've seen about half a dozen times when Texans have slipped down with either no contact or what seems to be very minor contact. I haven't noticed it happening to the Packers, but might have just been tuning it out. Could it be cleats or something?

I pointed the condition of the field from the beginning of the game.
Jamison probably has an Achilles. (and I think Caldwell literally got knocked out of the game with a concussion after he slipped)
Packers LB Perry is knocked out with a knee injury.
Packers LB White is also knocked out with a knee injury.

You would have thought that with this being our first Sunday Night Football game, they would have done a bit more to ensure the field was in optimal condition...

I have noticed multiple slips and falls over the course of the season. I just plain HATE the way our field plays.

We were "inovative" in the way our field/stadium was setup, when it was first done. Now it's just plain stupid. Players getting hurt and constant slips and falls. SMH.

Not to mention that we play in HOUSTON where it has year-round high humidity.

I'm curious if McCarthy or anybody from the Packers talks about the turf after the game.

Shields was an incidental contact injury. No issue with the turf there.

Default Re: Reliant's Turf

I've been bitching about the turf for years like a lot of you but since we don't play on it and only watch players slip and slide, stick and twist in it we're not qualified to say it's a bad field. Remember that even though it looks like crap and doesn't appear to play much better. Years ago somebody said that the players thought it was a top-ten field in some poll or survey so every time a thread appears asking for some kind of change we get a few glorious sunshine pumpers come around to tell us that we don't what we're talking about.

Doesn't change the fact that we've got one of the nicest stadiums in football with one of the worst fields in football inside of it.

I even wonder if the grass was watered recently by rain through the open roof or manually.

This is really pathetic. If the team is going to continue to use a turf like this, they have got to start replacing it each and every game. This can't continue. Frequent injuries are killing this team and due to the nature of the injuries (and the constant slippage), the turf definitely seems to be the main culprit.

Is there no way to get this some more publicity? Surely this is something the news could pick up on. I mean this is a big deal. The Texans are not changing out their turf often enough so the turf develops huge divots which then cause a higher likelihood of player injuries. They also chose not to replace it before one of the biggest games in Texans history thus far. That isn't a big story?

You know... we "cried" about the turf before the play-offs last season. However, the turf didn't pose any problem what-so-ever to anyone but the Texans.

Why is it just a problem for us? Why didn't we see any Packers slipping & sliding & tearing their achilles?

Because they were too busy tearing up their knees.

Quote:
Green Bay's 42-14 win at Houston came at a steep price. Coach Mike McCarthy, who usually withholds any revealing information about the severity of injuries after a game was upfront.

“Unfortunately, we have some potentially serious injuries,” McCarthy said.

Linebacker D.J. Smith and RB Brandon Saine crumpled to the turf and left the game with significant right knee injuries. Both wore grimaces on their faces as they were helped off the field by trainers. In the locker room, they both were on crutches with their knees wrapped.

"We feel the injuries are significant,” McCarthy said of Smith and Saine. “We'll have to recover from that and move on.”

But that wasn't all.

Outside linebacker Nick Perry also left the game with a knee injury. Though he was seen walking around and laughing on the sideline during the game, he didn't return. In the fourth quarter, CB Sam Shields left the game after being kicked in the shin. Before being carted off the field, Shields could be seen angrily slamming his hand against the bench on the sideline, while talking to a trainer.

Even QB Aaron Rodgers had a slight limp as he walked off the field late in the fourth quarter. Rodgers' leg was receiving medical attention on the sideline after he departed, though it didn't appear serious.

The specifics and severity of the injuries won't be known until McCarthy addresses the media late on Monday, and even then he may not have or provide much information.

I don't know why the team doesn't go with field turf. It seems the field is in bad shape for several games each year.
