Time for turf at Soldier Field?

The Sun-Times today reports how the Bears should for sure think about putting turf in at Soldier Field with a faster team taking the field in 2010:

With a team that relies on speed and quickness more than ever, even the oldest stadium in the game might be ready to ditch the dirt. Mike Martz’s precision passing game requires receivers to run to specific spots on the field. What if there’s a pothole in that spot during a December game at Soldier Field? … As much as it might repulse traditionalists, who rightly prefer the grass-stained version of the game, it may be time for the Bears to replace the often treacherous turf at Soldier Field with a clean, quick, artificial surface. Defensively and now offensively, Lovie Smith’s team requires a fast track, and what it plays on now resembles a plowed field after late-season games.
