Saints may return home for camp this year

Reports saying that Saints may not go to West Virginia this spring.

I hope so because I think that "resort" is making them soft. Jmo of course.

Big Plus!
Enough of the Day Spa.

Either come back to NOLA, or if you really want to be Battle Ready, take it
back to Jackson. The great fans in Mississippi deserve it, and a preseason
game.

Maybe Payton doesn't want Hard Knocks to show how much of a vacation it is in West Virginia.

This NEEDS to happen. We were soft coming off the last two years in camp. Time to man up and get in game shape early to start the year off right and build momentum.

The team that practiced in metarie under the intense heat certainly played better as a unit.

Well ...

Rotten - I ain't so sure about that & here me out . Metarie in late May - August .. WHEW humidity, sun, 100+ degree temps in the shade etc can be an absolute beat down at TC. Players are more prone to repeated cramps, heat exhaustion and dehydration. Some of the bigger issues for the Saints and winning had more to do with having an extremely young team on D, coaches & the level of talent in camp vs Greenbriar, WV. I just don't see how practicing in high humidity can assist in conditioning but that's just me.

Denver, NE, Seattle, Ravens, Giants (all recent SB winners) have TC's in higher altitude type settings.

Flame away .

I never thought it was the location that was the problem either. Other teams practice in milder climates and don't have a problem at all. We looked soft several years ago when we practiced at Millsaps.

Heat, humidity and rain are problems down here. Perhaps they plan on practicing in the indoor facility more than usual.

Poor choice on a few levels. Don't understand it. There are ways to mitigate the heat.

Stay home & suck it up. They can practice indoors on brutally hot days.
