    Pats travelling a day early to adjust to altitude.

    This is great news IMO.   It shows the attention to detail that Belichick is known for.  The extra day will let them adjust better and understand how to deal with any issues that come up.

    It's not going to make much of a differance. Two days or less is not enough time for your body to adapt a whole lot.

    Altitude doesn't matter.  The Patriots breathe teamwork and preparation, not oxygen.

    It takes more then a day or two, lol!!

    I'm surprised teams don't make a bigger deal of this when they are headed there to play.  It is a factor, bigger factor then people think, apparently.

    I was hoping they would have gone a day earlier but Brady had the trots.  I am not entirely sure 1 day does anything. Maybe they can get up high somewhere at an outdoor restaurant with fire pits and try to get acclimated.

    right....   go to 7000 ft say Vail and do a walk through there.   Have dinner there.  This will train them to make 5000 ft seem more like normal .

     

    And please people stop saying it is irrelevant.  that is ignorant beyond belief.

    So the city must have been lower from 1960-1972 as they didnt have a winning season until 1973,,,,,,

    Re: Pats travelling a day early to adjust to altitude.

    The altitude is a real thing (go for a hike out here straight off the plane and see), but it is really more of an endurance thing and I don't think football/basebell players really get affected much by it.  It really hits you when get the heart rate up for a while.  A few sprints in a 3 hour football game isn't going to feel that much different, but for the lineman who have an elevated heart rate for longer periods, it might catch up with them a little.

    One day does make a difference, albeit not a big one.  Your body starts producing more red bloods quickly.  Each day that goes by, you're catching up.  An extra day helps.  It's a good idea.

    The NFL should -shut down the Denver operation and move it.

    According to Reiss, this has nothing at all to do with altitude.  The Pats usually do this whenver they are playing a 1PM EST game in a different time zone.  The game is being played at 11:00 AM local time in Denver.

    It's relevant, but I don't see this as early either.  I guess they could have flown out tomorrow morning but this seems to be a bit more leisurely, IMO, and I don't think it's enough time to acclimate.

    What they should do is go up higher than stadium level where there is even more of a difference.

    thats what I said   ^^^^^^^^^^...    go to vail for a day and do your walkthroughs at 7000 ft.

    lol

    It would the best way to acclimate at such a late juncture.

    I was wrong....  Vail which is around 2 hours drive from Denver is 8000 ft at the base. (even better)

    Re: Pats travelling a day early to adjust to altitude.

    5,000 feet isn't that significant, but 2 days is significantly more than 0 or 1.  Costa Rica is almost 4,000 feet and I feel almost nothing running on a treadmill for an hour at the same speed I do at sea level.  I go about twice a year.  By the 3rd day, i have no difference.  And running without stop is a lot harder than shortbursts followed by 40 seconds of rest to recover your oxygen.  The hitting on the line will not be a lung affecting activity, it will be the receivers, running backs and defensive backs only.  There will probably be no effect on the participants during play, unless they have individual issues with altitude, ,maybe a few do, not everyone.
