Plus now that they no longer have two a days its kinda soft. Camp is supposed to be hot, hard, and brutal. From top to bottom the NFL are starting to caudle these guys too much.

Like the idea, they should do this more often, it'll probably broaden the fan-base as well.

Because thats how it always was done? I'm all for cutting practises down as long as you get done what you need. Its one thing to be a 16-17 year old kid in highschool having two-a-days, then your body heals real fast and its not a big deal but the difference is monumental once you get older.

I'm close to 30 and still playing. I've been to numerous national team camps in the summer with both 2 and 3 practises a day and I can tell you its no walk in the park anymore. You get tired and sloppy and a lot pore injury prone, and the reps become lower quality.

You kids get off my lawn!

I live about 45 minutes south of Oxnard. I know the training facility well. I am taking 3 days off and me and my kids will be there to cheer on our Black n Gold.

I like it. Already WCoast, Frisco play out doors, less distractions away from home. Payton will probably plan some group hugs. I like it.
