    Photobucket has changed it's image hosting pricings, moving my $2/month plan to $480/year -- so most of the images I have posted here will revert to dead links sometime soon. There's no workaround other than replacing them one-by-one. So my posts the forums are going to look funky for a while. My apologies.

      Texans to hold training camp at the Greenbrier

      HOUSTON – The Houston Texans today announced that the team will hold its 2017 training camp at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. Exact dates and times for the training camp practices will be released at a later date. This is the first time the Texans will hold training camp off-site, as they have spent the last 15 seasons at the Houston Methodist Training Center.

      “We are thrilled with the opportunity to hold training camp at the Greenbrier,” said Executive Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager Rick Smith. “It’s a wonderful place and the facilities and climate combine for an ideal environment as our team trains, bonds, and prepares for the 2017 season.”

      The Greenbrier, located in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., is a National Historic Landmark and world-class resort that has hosted distinguished guests from around the world since 1778, including 26 U.S. presidents. Known as "America's Resort," The Greenbrier encompasses more than 10,000 acres of rolling landscape that includes: four golf courses; a championship indoor and outdoor tennis facility; a multi-purpose Sports Performance Center, which includes two grass fields, one artificial surface field and a training facility; a 40,000-square-foot spa rated by Conde Nast as one of the top 25 in the world; a breadth of sporting activities; shops; private homes at The Greenbrier Sporting Club; and, at its heart, a vast and imposing grand hotel purchased in 2009 by West Virginia entrepreneur Jim Justice II.

      The Greenbrier has undergone a $250 million restoration and is now home to The Greenbrier Classic, a PGA TOUR FedEx Cup event. The New Orleans Saints held their training camp at The Greenbrier for the last three years (2014-16).

        Beautiful place, but we lose an advantage of being use to 120 deg heat to start the season. And it's only 1/2 of camp so...what idiot thought it up is my question.

          Whatever revenue that training camp generates will now be generated in another state.

          GJ Texans, I'm sure west virginia will enjoy the extra cash. Maybe they can pay for the stadium upgrades

            so first it's McNair doesn't really care about what happens with our team as long as it's making him money, to complaining that he is spending his money, and not making any in return to do what he and the rest of the F.O. think is best. also from the little bit I have read on the matter couple with the vibe I get from OB I feel like this is more of a him move then a McNair or smith. OB is going into year 4 of his 5 year deal McNair is going to have to make a decision on his HC soon as well so maybe he is finally letting him run his team fully how he wants to.

                At least the team won't be bothered by incessant distraction from fans who scramble for free tickets to watch their practices, and we won't be bombarded with all of useless trivia from the hoards of media members that attend Houston camp each year. I think that it will be a good change of scenery for all involved.

                  McNair is not going to take his hand out of Smiths back. McNair makes the calls via Smith and OB is stuck with what he gets.

                  Best case for OB is he is allowed to get a QB he wants. And McNair is not going to part ways with OB soon. 9-7 with more QB changes than the Browns and 2 division titles. He will probably sign him for 3 years more. Only issue is that I can't see OB wanting to stay around after his 5th year ends if he can't get more input into personal moves. What HC wants to be told (even if you can get them) that you can't have a certain player. However, we can get you the 2 others later who aren't very good, but play the position you need.

                  I would finish my deal and get a new HC job. I think half the rumors of OB to San Francisco or some college where OB leaking interest. Then when asked, saying he had no idea why his name was involved. Power play in the Hoodie style. Make the owner wonder and think. If it works right then you will get the control you need to get stuff done. If not...play out the deal and walk to another gig.

                    Not too sure practicing in the heat does any good. Seems like heat stress would only add to possible injuries. Then there is the fact that most if not all games the roof is closed and games played in AC.

                    Been subjected to this heat / humidity for over seventy years and I ain't accustomed to it yet.

                      The media will definitely be there.

                        Should be less distractions, more focus on issues at hand, no problem with it

                          Bill Belichick & Bill O'Brien have been working on scheduling joint practices with Patriots-Texans at Greenbrier (WVa.) in Week 2/preseason.

                          Meaning we play NE in week 2 of preseason...?

                            I'd love to see OB's contract extended by Smith just to read all the comments backpedaling on their "obvious rift."
