Saints loved their time in “Almost heaven, West Virginia”

While Panthers coach Ron Rivera was worried his training camp wasn’t quite hot enough, Saints coach Sean Payton loved the cool break he got.

And everything else about staying at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia.

They already planned to come back the next two years, but their experience had Payton ready to make it a permanent home.

“Really, honestly, with the experience that we’ve had … we’d like to be back here for a lot longer than just that,” Payton said, via Mike Triplett of ESPN.com. “The setup is outstanding. And the ability to kind of stay in an enclosed environment, I think the people here have been great, I think everything about it,” Payton said. “We start putting down notes as to maybe changes for next year, and it’s less than a page. There isn’t a whole lot.”

The Saints were mostly grateful for the weather, where it stayed in the 60s compared to the oppressive humidity of Louisiana.

“The challenge from 62 to 92 degrees will be significant,” Payton said.

And the challenge of being farther away from Florio greater still.

stay up there for all of training camp and play a game on the W Virgina campus.

We see enough Saints and I'd rather have them avoid the heat and get more training in

Exercising at elevation pushes the cardio/pulmonary system. Many olympic athletes train at higher elevations to get more bang for their workout buck.

Changes in atmospheric pressure can affect old injuries and cause inflammation and pain. Time to get home and get acclimated.

I have tendentious in both rotator cuffs and when I fly a lot I do not sleep well because of the discomfort.

I left a comment for the guy with the dentist remark, no insult, merely a count up of the number of dentists in the greater Nola area via the yellow pages (about 460, for the record). But PFT keeps deleting it. I can never figure out why they let some terribly offensive thing get posted then delete the responses, even ones that aren't offensive.
