Training Camp Travel: Track the Indianapolis Colts' Playoff Hopes

August 6, 2013 at 11:29 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

One of the surprise performances—and feel good stories—of last season has to be the Indianapolis Colts. After a terrible season during 2011 and the loss of the future hall of fame quarterback, there was quite a rebound and recovery during 2012.

Training Camp Travel: San Francisco 49ers Try Again for the Big Game

August 1, 2013 at 10:15 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

The defending NFC champions are looking to make it all the way back to the Super Bowl this year, but there’s still plenty of games to play before February. At the same time, we certainly need some time to stock up on game day snacks.

There’s a lot of pieces that remain in place from last year’s team, but of course there will be some new faces as well. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick will be leading the team from the very first game, and apparently there will be plenty of lookalikes in the stands as well. That’s because his jersey has been one of the top sellers during this year’s offseason.

· When's Camp:
Practices have already been going on for a little bit of time, as the players have been trying to work out the offseason kinks. Usually there’s plenty of practice sessions open to the public, but this year’s a little different as construction of the new stadium is getting in the way. One practice will be open to the public—over at Candlestick Park—but if you’re looking for a more game time experience there’s always the preseason. The Denver Broncos come into town on August 8 to start the preseason schedule.

Training Camp Travel: The Baltimore Ravens Go for Two in a Row

July 30, 2013 at 10:11 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

It seems like just yesterday that we were overindulging in chicken wings and processed cheese while watching the Super Bowl, and when our snacks finally ran out it was the Baltimore Ravens who came out on top as the season’s champions.

The team is a lot different this year, as some players have headed elsewhere while others have headed off to the golf course—we’re looking at you Ray Lewis. Quarterback Joe Flacco is back for another season, and he’s making the big bucks—like really big—to lead his team in 2013. We’re not so sure they’ll be back in this year’s big game, but we’ll just have to wait and see how the season shakes out.

Training Camp Travel: Terrible Towels and the Pittsburgh Steelers

July 26, 2012 at 11:24 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

As best we remember the Steelers had a pretty good season in 2011, but after finishing with 12 wins during the regular season they were bounced from the playoffs by Tim Tebow and the Broncos. The Pittsburgh Steelers seem to be a threat to win it all each and every year, so we’re kind of expecting much of the same come 2012.

Hines Ward is gone, but Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Polamalu are back and looking to help the team earn Super Bowl win number seven. There’s plenty of teams with an alternate plan for this season’s Steelers, so we’ll just have to wait and see how the season shakes out.

Training Camp Travel: Tony Romo and the Cowboys Plan a Road Trip

July 24, 2012 at 10:28 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

There hasn’t been too much offseason news surrounding this year’s Dallas Cowboys, but that doesn’t mean that training camp is going to be any less interesting. Each and every year seems to be the year for the team, so obviously expectations will be high—once again—for the 2012 season.

Tony Romo, Miles Austin, and DeMarcus Ware will all try their best to take the team to the next level. However, that starts with them making the playoffs—something they couldn’t get done last season.

Training Camp Travel: The Miami Dolphins Look for Fame with HBO's Hard Knocks

July 19, 2012 at 10:28 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

There’s a new coach, a couple new quarterbacks, and a brand new playbook heading into training camp for this year’s Miami Dolphins. During the offseason the team was initially in the running for the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, but apparently Peyton just wasn’t interested in bringing his talents to South Beach.

Instead the Dolphins now have rookie Ryan Tannehilland his wife—who may or may not start in 2012. In the interim, the team will look to Matt Moore or David Garrard to lead them to the playoffs for the first time in a long time.

Training Camp Travel: Catch Your First Glimpse of Peyton Manning as a Bronco

July 17, 2012 at 1:06 PM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

If you weren’t paying attention during the offseason, there was a pretty big move by one future hall of fame quarterback. Due to a nagging injury Peyton Manning kind of didn’t play during the 2011 season and, as a result, he packed his bags and moved away from Indianapolis. It was certainly the story of the offseason, but after all was said and done he decided to join the Denver Broncos.

We’re thinking that the Broncos will do fine without fan favorite Tim Tebow, and it’s likely that with Manning at the helm they’ll be back in the playoffs once again this season.

Training Camp Travel: Who Dat Say Dey Gonna Beat Dem Saints

July 13, 2012 at 12:01 PM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

The New Orleans Saints have had a pretty rough offseason thanks to the bounty scandal and the resulting suspensions and related punishments. Even without their usual head coach we’re still thinking that the team has a decent shot in 2012, as long as they finally wrap up contract negotiations with quarterback Drew Brees.

Games against the Packers and Giants might prove to be a little difficult, but if they can overcome some of the offseason turmoil they should be headed far into the playoffs.

Training Camp Travel: Follow Eli Manning and The G-Men to Albany

July 11, 2012 at 10:46 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

The New York Giants are of course still a threat to win it all, after winning the big game earlier in 2012. Eli Manning and his crew have a long road ahead of them if they think that they can easily make it two in a row, but of course they’re probably up for the challenge.

There’s always a couple tricky games against the usual foes like the Eagles and the Cowboys, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Giants start strong and play well into 2013.

Training Camp Travel: Brady and The Patriots Return to New England

August 17, 2011 at 9:43 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! After a summer of bickering back and forth a deal was made to get the NFL back to business, and now we’re only a few weeks away from the first week of the season. We’re already planning our Sunday menus of overindulgence, but until then we can always start practicing our tailgating skills at training camp:

The New England Patriots have been a threat to win it all for quite some time, and this year looks to be the case as well. Tom Brady and his crew—including newly acquired Chad Ochocinco—have been practicing in pads and helmets for a few weeks now and are slowly and steadily getting ready for the 2011 season. There’s plenty of games to be played until the Super Bowl rolls around, including at least two games against those pesky New York Jets, so we’ll see how the season shakes out.

Training Camp Travel: Where to Watch the Packers Prep to Repeat as Champions

August 10, 2011 at 10:15 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! After a summer of bickering back and forth a deal was made to get the NFL back to business, and now we’re only a few weeks away from the first week of the season. We’re already planning our Sunday menus of overindulgence, but until then we can always start practicing our tailgating skills at training camp:

In case you missed it last year, the Green Bay Packers brought home the big prize after winning the Super Bowl. That means this year is all about trying their best to repeat as champions. We’re a little better at judging airlines than football teams, but even we think they’ve got a pretty good chance at two-in-a-row.

· When's Camp:
The Packers got busy as soon as the NFL Lockout was over, and things look to stay that way as practice runs through August 30. After that they’ll still be testing out new plays and working out all the kinks, but those practices are closed to the public. Most practices begin at 7pm, but if you’re looking for an excuse to cut out of work a little earlier there are a few that start right after lunch at 1pm. There’s usually something going on most days of the week, so check out the full schedule here and start planning your visit.

Training Camp Travel: Following The Dallas Cowboys

August 17, 2010 at 9:31 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football? It’s still several weeks before the NFL season kicks off to provide meaning to our Sundays once again, but training camp has arrived. We’ve checked out what’s going on at several spots and teams around the league, and this is what we found:

This year’s Super Bowl is going to take place in Dallas, so it would be pretty convenient if the Cowboys were able to make it all the way to the big game. Last year they finally won a playoff game under Tony Romo, but it’s going to take a lot more than that to make it all the way to the season’s final game.

· When's Camp:
The Cowboys started camp almost a month ago, so at this point the team should already have shaken off most of the off season cobwebs. Practice runs through August 27, but there are some breaks in the schedule, like when the team heads to San Diego for a preseason game this weekend. Twice a day practices are fairly common and usually take place at 9am and then at 3:15pm. If the team is only doing their thing once a day it’s usually at 2:15pm.
