04:13 PM ET 01.10 | The Seattle Seahawks beat the Washington Redskins in a Wild Card playoff matchup last weekend, but the condition of the field may have been an even bigger story. Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman is never shy about voicing his opinion, and he let fly about the conditions at FedEx Field with Petros and Money on Fox Sports Radio, calling it "awful" with "no real traction" on the field.

Do you think painted mud would be less slippery than normal mud? Just askin'.

They must have sent the grounds keepers' check via FedEx. I'm sure it will show up in time for the start of camp. No surprises, the whole company is like that field, just a useless mess.

My Television set showed a Field that what not in good condition, did The Skins offer an explanation?

I'm sure Fed Ex is none too pleased to have their name associated with that cow pasture.

I admit....I prefer watching a game on real grass (if that's what you call that field) but hopefully they can do a better job on it next year.

I'm pretty sure FedEx isn't even aware their name is on a stadium, and if they are aware not a sole in the company knows who's responsible. It was probably expensed out over a couple divisions by some mid-level manager, blamed on another mid-level manager who was on vacation, overlooked by the accounting department, and forgotten by upper management. FedEx is a corporate mess.

Actually Dan Snyder and the CEO of Fedex are good buddies. Which may explain what's wrong with both companies.
