Let me get this straight: The NFL is a "cabillion" dollar corporation that ponies up a "cabillion" dollars to have teams play in foreign countries, but can't throw the Hall of Fame a bone and put in a state of the art field? The best possible field should always be in place each year for this game. Shameful. EmbarrASSing. Cheap. No way they should play the game if the field isn't NFL ready.

Gotta agree with ya, Boris. This will be dissected ad nauseam, but the bottom line is this is a big black eye on the NFL at a time when they cannot afford more negative publicity. They might not have been responsible for the field's condition (my understanding is that the NFL HoF is solely responsible for the preparations, including the field care), but the buck stops with the league. This was to be an NFL sanctioned game, and the onus to make sure that the conditions are acceptable should...

The NFL is a billion dollar business run by billion dollar businessmen. They have all the connections and experience to make the Hall of Fame game proceed seamlessly. What they're showing is they don't really care about this extra, nearly meaningless game. Hopefully they get rid of it next year. I I'd like Saturday to be the Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions and then Sunday be individual teams Hall of Fame inductions in their own stadium followed by family night practice or scrimmage.

I think that's technically accurate, but there are a number of NFL owners on the board trustees of the Hall of Fame. So while it's not technically the NFL, it's really hard to separate this and say it's an HOF issue and not an NFL issue. NFL blew it. Very hard to believe how a league this big can't get the right paint on a field.

I like what tit said. No game, just the weekend festivities. But each team in the NFL would have their own individual Team Hall of Fame festivities on that Sunday. No more game.

Uh oh. Looks like there is concern with the field. Seems to be concern on both sides. Link Titm posted talked about this being a borrowed field from the Superdome. From article: " However, the Field Turf surface has been replaced as part of the stadium’s $80 million renovation with a surface known as UBU turf that was removed from the Superdome after the 2016 Sugar Bowl. A new permanent surface will be installed in Phase Two of the renovation, which begins shortly after the Packers and Colts...

ChilliJon posted: Tom Silverstein: Got to think GM Ted Thompson won’t let his team play on this surface unless he’s positive it’s safe. Not sure who makes that call that it is. How does the NFL keep putting teams in a position they have to figure out if a field is safe to play on? But by Oldschool's logic, if TT hates the turf he must really love the turf so he has no excuse for not allowing his team to play.

I'm back home up nort and fighting with the crappy wifi, but have to say this is one of the biggest cluster****s ever. Silver lining is that we probably don't have to listen to Gruden slurping Brent during the traditional in-game interview they do with the new HoFamers. Although since ESPN now has three hours of dead air to fill I wouldn't be surprised if they pay Brent to give us 3 hours of homespun piety and bull****.

Positives: -Janis had no miscommunications with the QB. He's turned the corner on route running. Possible pro bowler this year. -No low character plays for Adams. He's back on track. Likely pro bowler this year. Negatives: -Offense put up 0 points. Poor play calling by MM. Time to go back to Clements? -Jordy held to 0 zero catches. Clearly not back from ACL. IR? -Lacy averaged 0.0 yards per carry. Weight still an issue. First cut?
