The Chicago Bears have a long standing tradition of one of the most respected organizations in all of the National Football League, as well as throughout all of the major professional sports leagues. They are loved by many, hated by some, but respected by all. Fans show up in droves to support the Bears, free agents love coming to Chicago and the team remains one of the most feared in all of the NFL.
But as much as the players love playing in front of the fans at Soldier Field, they are certainly getting used to the poor field conditions. They are speaking out about it as well.
A couple of years ago, Jay Cutler called the turf at Soldier Field ”one of the worst fields in the league” during a press conference toward the end of the 2010 season. Last year, Brian Urlacher called the turf “a disaster” and pushed the team to implement Field Turf prior to the 2011 season.
Now, Robbie Gould is taking his shots at the field and the grounds crew in general.
