So,they'll be indoors pretty much every practice. In July and August every day is brutally hot. I know- I work outdoors.

Was hoping they were moving training camp back to South Louisiana (Thibodaux, LA even better)...

Re: Saints may return home for camp this year

Way too much HS mentality in this thread. Raising the risk for injury by practising in really hot conditions won't hel, it won't make a team tougher. It will make a team come in to the season worn down. That is something that might work in HS but not in the pros.

It's the mental toughness. We do not have it. Heat injuries can be mitigated.

A- I don't think we lack mental toughness. I think we lack fundamentals.

B- I don't think mental toughness can be acquired simply by changing location of a training camp.

C- I think improved fundamentals is a result of emphasis and coaching. Location has nothing to do with that.

Re: Saints may return home for camp this year

Go run a few miles on a balmy Tuesday in a mild climate. Then come run a few miles with me with a heat index of over 100. I will show you what I'm talking about. You will fail if not use to it or start walking. This is why the military trains in rough climates. Most of the major schools are located in areas with severe weather fluctuations. I could give you more specific examples but I will leave it at that. It prepares one mentally for an uncommon exterior stress. Even if you play half the game indoors you will be mentally and physically stronger to push harder than someone who does not.

Saints returning to the Greenbrier for training camp

It looks like the New Orleans Saints might be staying in White Sulphur Springs, W Va. after all this summer.

A source told NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune the Saints are going back to the Greenbrier Resort where they have held training camp for the past two years. That contradicts a report by FOX sports earlier on Wednesday that said they might be considering staying home in Metairie.



The Saints have not announced anything official, so it's possible plans could continue to change. They announced their training camp schedule in mid-June last year, and spent 24 days there before returning to Metairie.

They are entering the final year of a three-year contract with the resort, which built a new training facility for the Saints to use.
