Default How do joint practices work?

are they scheduled with teams that coaching staffs have previous histories with? or is it just whoever you happen to be playing that week in pre-season? do teams get to choose their pre-season games, or are the opponents chosen by the league? we do seem to play the 49ers A LOT in the pre-season. coincidence? or is it due to old ties with Shanny and his coaches? anyone know how this works out in the real world?

also, how long has this been going on? i don't recall that this happened very often 20 years ago, but now it seems like it's pretty common. my memory might be bad though.

I've always figured most preseason games were determined by geography, given we usually play Arizona, SF, and the Texas teams. Not particularly long trips. As for how the joint practice weeks are decided, I have no idea.

did you know Green Bay is closer to Denver than SF (by about 100 miles)? we never seem to play the Packers in the pre-season.

i'm sure there are some travel considerations involved, but my guess is there is something else involved.

No, I did not know that and wouldn't have figured it to be the case.

I'm just waiting to hear about a fight breaking out tomorrow, even though they said on ESPN that both teams were making an extra effort to avoid such conflict.

They're set up by the head coaches after the preseason opponents are known.

seriously, either an association with head coaches or franchises is behind the PS match-ups and decision for joint practice.
and an agreement, you play at our house this year, we play at your house next year.
the capacity to oirchestrate a week long stay also comes into play, including keeping family members amused / accommodated.
AZ practice in the heat
Denver, practice at altitude.
green bay has closer associations with other teams.
and I think its more common for afc and nfc teams to prefer playing PS games OUTSIDE of their conferences.
notice not a lot of PS games with KC our CLOSEST neighbor !
