Greetings from the Greenbrier

Vaccaro AP

I’m not much for the training-camp tours because:  (1) Florio Jr. is still in high school; and (2) with a noon ET web show and a 5:30 p.m. ET NBCSN show every weekday, the logistics can be a little challenging.

But with the Saints practicing 140 miles or so down the road from the West Virginia headquarters of PFT, it was impossible to pass on the opportunity to swing down to the Greenbrier for a couple of days.  So we loaded up the ’68 VW bus after Wednesday’s show and drove south, and we’ll be broadcasting both PFT Live and Pro Football Talk from White Sulphur Springs on Thursday and Friday.

Saints fans hopefully will have added interest in the shows.  Fans of other NFC teams also may want to see what the Saints are up to, given that the Saints finally have found a way to win on the road in the postseason.  After beating the Eagles in Philly, the Saints gave the Seahawks all they could handle in Seattle.  If New Orleans can play like that on a consistent basis away from home in 2014, the road to the Super Bowl may once again go through the Superdome, making it much harder for anyone other than the Saints to qualify.

    Awesome, now if you could only start the show another 30 minutes later I’d actually be able to catch it.

    If the Saints just run the ball out the I-Form throughout the game, theyre a whole different offense.
    Sean Payton figured that out too late last year. Feed Ingram that rock, he may only get you three or four yards, but that is all you really need.

    Saints will absolutely dominate the nfc this season…won’t even be close. Maybe I’m a homer but…watch and see. This squad is as stacked as any and Payton isn’t playing around. Leave it to the saints to find a 5 star resort to camp in!

    Who dat!

    Are you really still driving a 68 VW Bus? Pretty cool….

    I have always been big on not looking past the next game on the schedule. That said, opening in Atlanta will set the tone for both squads; let’s hold off on the discussions regarding home field advantage for the playoffs until December…

    Saints 42

    Other than oline and LB depth, this team is absolutely loaded

    The greenbrier is some pretty swanky digs.

    Love Florio, only guy to question what Goodell says, everyone else thinks it’s gospel
