Well we are a week into Training Camp 2014 in the NFL and to me, one thing is more apparent than ever.

Access to camps for the fans is better than ever.

If you are so inclined, you could sit in your favorite chair, enjoy your favorite food and beverage, and watch coverage of training camp from early morning to late night if your heart desires.

The NFL Network has given us wall to wall access inside camps unlike anything we have seen in recent memory.

Team drills, individual drills, and any other drill you can think of is shown.

Something that coaches 10 years ago would have been beside themselves about, they now take in stride because it is just part of the process.

Can you imagine if Vince Lombardi, Don Shula, or Chuck Noll would have had to deal with cameras all over the place while they attempted to conduct the grind of a training camp?

Yeah, that would have been quite the scene.

It is a different time in the NFL, one that coaches may not like but is certainly great for us the fans.
