The NFL has been pretty rough on the Surface.

Aaron Rodgers Throws Surface: The Video

Funny enough, for an NFL quarterback, he didn’t seem to throw it that hard. I would imagine the Surface could survive such a wimpy toss to the turf, so it might bounce back.
Probably can’t say the same for the Packers this season.
