Now that's what I like to see! Not only because it's awesome when professional athletes invest time and seem to genuinely care about/contribute to the community that embraces them, but because I don't have a single irrational complaint about the state of the team yet! Already on to Day 2, and I'm not overly concerned about the offense because the defense played well or overly concerned about the defense because the offense played well. A solid sweat in the books and there's not a one person whose dismissal I am calling for over a dropped pass or a broken coverage. Count this is as the first time that withdrawals from football haven't manifested themselves in a "sky is falling mentality" one hour into training camp after a beat writer reports that someone had to be helped off the field. No sir. Not this year. One workout down and everyone still standing upright. Those that were healthy before are still healthy now.
God bless Sean Payton for tricking us all into thinking a team-wide act charitable activity was the start of training camp. That's how you get the fans spirits up... 24 hours prior to sending them spiraling down a rabbit hole of 6 second, out of context clips shot from terrible angles. That's how you keep things positive around the franchise immediately before the supporters of it evaluate the abilities of 100 different men based on second hand 140 character blurbs. They say you can't win anything on the first day of training camp, but by postponing my inevitable preseason paranoia Sean Payton and the boys just won my approval.
