If I were a player, this would be incredible news. As a fan, I'm thinking that they better not lose this London game now.

Let's travel the Atlantic during hurricane season. Good idea. This has to be an April Fools skit.

This is one of the two road wins I have them penciled in for. Now I'm not so sure.

How about we just leave after the week two home game on a flight and get there six days early to get acclimated?

IDK, it's hard to believe they'd have a place to put a full 100Yd football field on the cruise ship, especially one that departs from Baltimore because they have to be in the smaller classes of ship to get under the bridge.
I do like the idea of having the whole team being able to bond and all but are they taking a plane back? Seems like you'd have the same time adjustment thing going on for week 4. I'm smelling a April fools thing here.

I love cruising and I don't get sea sick, but I'm assuming some of the players will be sick and not able to practice.  I'm not sure this is a good thing or not.  I do see the benefits though.

Very suspicious of this, especially since they mention the trip takes 7 days and they'll arrive just in time for kickoff.  Also mentions having Reynolds help navigate.  I wouldn't believe anything this "odd" today.

A North Atlantic cruise in September? Would hate to see their season get torpedoed before week 3.

... and now we'll have to wait a whole day to know for sure whether it's actual news or just 1 April... :)

 

(The "regulation-size onboard football field" thing seems to bhe a dead giveaway though...)

I'm still waiting for the shutting down of these board to be a bad early April fools day joke.. Big mistake from the front office.

Wow! This is so April fool's day! Makes zero sense from every logical perspective but a great attempt to fool for sure.

The biggest cruise ship ever built is barely wide enough to house a regulation sized football field. Yeah.. nice try.

Doubt they'll need a full-width football field for a practice week.

Most of the indoor training facilities that teams have don't include a full-width indoor field either.
