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.extremesk...re-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).

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?

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.

Run past the practice fields and you'll see tons of condos with perfect views of the fields. I'm sure opposing teams rent them to spy during the few times we've made the playoffs. This has always been a no-brainer for me. Just put a freaking bubble on one of the fields. Done.

I think J. Stewart has a condo overlooking the field and tweets his view once in a while.

Yeah, pretty fuging sad.

Why?

Thurs/Fri are typically just walk throughs without pads. all you need is a big open floor.

you better install one hell of a sound system if you want to replicate the noise in Seattle!!! Century Link now by the way!

in seriousness...I think that's one huge advantage to having an indoor facility. The turf is one thing, but the noise is a big thing to practice with in my opinion.

It's ridiculous that there are still NFL teams without indoor facilities. Look at all of the college programs with super nice indoor fields and other facilities (like Oregon). Hell, I think quite a few big time high school programs have indoor facilities.

No we don't. I don't believe they have ever lead the NFL in players on IR much less year after year.
