Gotta think our guys are getting tired of practicing in the Charlotte Convention Center every time it freaking rains. I think this is pretty commonplace, I know the Saints have an impressive indoor practice facility and the Falcons have one as well. Even higher level college programs have indoor practice facilities.

While certainly a more sizable investment, I think this is a better one than escalators or WI-FI in the stadium.

Panthers practiced in the convention center Tuesday, not sure about Monday, but this is already a short week.

Some interesting stats poached from a Redskins forum (cannot attest to their accuracy):

  • 13 of last 14 Super Bowl participants had their own indoor practice facility.
  • Last 8 Super Bowl winners had their own indoor practice facility.
  • Last 6 Super Bowl winners had a fixed structure indoor practice facility (not a bubble).
  • All 12 teams to make playoffs last season used their own indoor practice facility.
  • 2010 teams who practiced using their own indoor full-field training facility had a median win total of 10 (10-6 record).
  • 2010 teams who practiced outdoors had a median win total of 6 (6-10 record).
  • 2010 teams who practiced indoors at own training facility averaged 4 more wins in 2010, compared to those who did not.
  • 2010 teams who practiced outdoors and were not located in Florida or California, had the following records: 6-10 (Redskins), 6-10 (Cowboys), 5-11 (Cardinals), 4-12 (Bengals), 4-12 (Broncos), 2-14 (Panthers).
Here is a link to the Redskins thread about this if you are interested, this dude did his homework:

wow, that's insane!

edit: looking at the post a second time, not that impressed with the 2010 records shown, look at their QBs... but the superbowl (and playoffs) correlation is very interesting.

Just read an article on the Patriots Indoor facility.

Its fuggin padded for reduced concussions.

Wow, I mean we dont even have a indoor facility and the Patriots have a padded one.

There may be something to this.

wut? So to oversimplify, Jake was never the problem or John Fox? All we had to do was put a plastic bubble over the practice fields on Cedar Street and we would have brought home a Lombardi??

Get it built Danny Morrison. Do it now.

Shouldn't cost that much to throw up a giant circus tent on the field. The clowns can stand in for when we play the Saints again.

You know wht? Now that I think about it, We should have a padded indoor facility underground.

The only entrance to it will be through the mouth of a unnamed volcano, protected by Vin Diesel.

But not Vin Deisel from "The Pacifier" but Vin Deisel from "Pitch black".

And it will be powered by sunlight and litium crystals.

Then.........Superbowl. Endthread/

According to Gantt, Fox had wanted a indoor bubble for years.

That's funny, our local high school has an indoor football practice facility, they don't have to be that expensive.
