I recall practicing rugby in freezing rain for an hour and nobody ever suggested we go snuggle inside.

Granted I wasn't under contract.

But seriously how often do we need a bubble? 3 times a year?

if someone asked me if any teams in the league didn't have an indoor facility I obviously would have gotten the answer wrong!!!!

I've posted this before, but seems apt, here is Redskins forum link regarding Indoor Practice Facilities:

http://www.extremeskins.com/showthread.php?349401-NFL-teams-with-indoor-practice-facilities-averaged-4-more-wins-in-2010

I stole the stats regarding correlation between teams with IPFs and their overall records/success from the above link. There is the whole correlation vs. causality thing to consider but it is interesting.

  • 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).

aside from just being able to run a full practice in crappy weather, i think it would be incredibly beneficial in helping the team prepare for non grassy and enclosed environments.

the artificial turf might not be a big deal but it could help them get more used to playing on a surface like fieldturf. it will be easier to get acclimated to.

a bigger deal would be in dealing with the sound that comes from playing under a roof or other structure that makes the field louder like you have at qualcomm (or whatever its called now in seattle). they could pipe in the sound (like I'm convinced a lot of these places do) and get cam and the OL and the rest of the team used to loud noise. it could really help their communication.

i think this should have been done a long time ago. and thats not just for the issues i brought up. its easy to spy on this team. i know the pres would get pissed at having the door closed on them but i think the team should always have at least one complete run thru prior to a game without being exposed to peeping eyes.

Cook was allegedly involved in an incident with a woman on June 23 outside of a Tallahassee bar, Clydes & Costellos, according to a heavily redacted incident report obtained by the Sentinel. The woman, according to a separate probable cause affidavit compiled by the Tallahassee Police Department, had bruises and abrasions after refusing to give her phone number or go home with an FSU football player. A probable cause affidavit stated one unidentified man approached the woman for her phone number and spoke about taking her home with him. She declined, stating she had a boyfriend. The man and a group of friends identified as five to seven FSU football players, including Cook, began to get into a heated argument with her. She told investigators a person got too close to her and she pushed him away, prompting a man she later identified as Cook to punch her multiple times in the face http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/florida-state-seminoles/os-fsu-dalvin-cook-accused-battery-20150710-story.html
    • And you can find a Terek Hill or Gaberial type in later rounds ..  IF i get a RB i want a 20 to 25 carry guy that can run inside and out.. Catching the ball is gravy but the most important part is being able to carry the load and kill the clock in the 4th qrt..
