Justin Forsett played 122 games in the NFL with a few games at the Coliseum -- so he knows what it's like to make catches on the grounds ... but he wasn't a fan of them.
The former NFL running back and Cal graduate tweeted out a comparison to what it's like to fall on the dirt at the Coliseum in Oakland and compared it to belly-flopping on the pavement.
Raiders quarterback Derek Carr agreed:
Many tweeted back at Forsett saying since the A's play there, they don't appear to see the baseball guys complaining about the terrain, but said "it's not normal" when the NFL players play on it.
David Nixon, who spent a season with the Raiders, also chimed in saying when he played at the Coli, he was told: " ... the field crew scrapes off all of the excess dirt from the baseball games." That would explain why it would feel like rocks.
Perhaps Matt Chapman and the rest of the guys are used to it, but now we all can't stop picturing belly-flopping on the concrete.
