Playbooks Go Digital

The team took part in a one-hour meeting where members of the Broncos video department led the players through the features of their new iPads on Thursday....

...the film will be downloaded automatically when the players walk in the building,

That's pretty cool. I know Ipads are lighter than those big binders, so Jay Cutler's dad would have appreciated this.

Or your iPad reads, "Contents on this device have been deleted- clean out your locker and leave this iPad on the bench in front of your locker. That is all"

The Turk is out of a job.

What happens when other teams start hacking into our iPads?

On serious note, they are doing some cool stuff. The film is especially cool because they can watch more film without using the film room. The part about recording photos and video of coaches' lectures and linking them to parts of the playbook is especially cool. No excuses.

I just hope they have thought through their security on this.

Awesome. That makes it easier to steal. I hope they are at least using 128 bit encryption on the iPads

maybe some of the players that didnt/ couldnt put in the extra work "in the film room" can be at home and take a few minutes here and there with the ipad

Manning's neck surgery incision area doubles as a USB port. True story.

also, since Manning only runs 10 plays it should be available online ;D

It's a huge security risk. I can go sit outside their house, get on their wireless network and steal every damn thing they have on any device in their home.

Only if they go online which they won't. I would think they would be on a secure internal network. Like banks ;D

Cool and smart. Though I think there is legitimate concern about security.

Just reading about how the Bucs coaches are having problems with players and IPADS and have already scrapped that plan going forward.

Many of the reasons make sense, not that I want to scrap good ideas after one year without trying to perfect the system, it almost seems like changing all playbooks over from what people are used to to digital would have to ensure some minor setback. Other reasons the Bucs give is not knowing when players watch video and other distractions on the pad.

I hope this doesn't affect the Broncos, good leadership is probably the key here, and the Bucs think their youth is partially to blame, but I am a small bit worried we could have waited another year and instill this system the normal way.

The latest trend in computing could be going the way of the CB radio, for some NFL teams.

At a time when more and more franchises are putting their playbooks on iPads, one of the first teams to adopt the technology has distanced itself from it, according to JoeBucsFan.com.

Running back Earnest Graham explained that the device doesn’t necessarily fit well with a young team.

“I think the concept of the iPads was excellent but at times a bit too much for players and coaches alike,” Graham told JoeBucsFan.com. “The problem was that at times guys would forget to charge them overnight or to update them when they came into the building because everything needed to download before meetings. That would cause problems. Also the fact that it’s an unnecessary distraction with being able to access the Internet, games, and so on.

“I thought the idea was great but it was definitely more negatives than positives with a young team. I enjoyed being able to access the opposing teams’ cut-ups and video of that day’s practice, but in my opinion most guys did not use them. If you keep it simple and do your installations using your [paper] playbooks, you don’t have to guess whether a guy is on Facebook or not. Based on that experience I would never use them if I went into coaching.”

Another problem, as the folks at JoeBucsFan.com point out, is that when a player has access to game film on his iPad, there’s no way to know he actually is studying it. When players show up at the facility to study film, it’s obvious that they’re studying film.

And so, for the Bucs, the tablet gone the way of the dodo bird. Or, perhaps more accurately, the way of former coach Raheem Morris, who was at the cutting edge in 2011 when he persuaded ownership to buy enough of them for the entire team. Rookie linebacker Najee Goode told JoeBucsFan.com last week that he has seen only an old-fashioned paper playbook during his time in Tampa.

Though other teams may have the maturity and accountability in the locker room to ensure that the iPads will be used as intended and not abused in any way, the Bucs apparently didn’t. And now new coach Greg Schiano apparently has decided to utilize what quickly is becoming an old-school approach.

Most of those things you are able to work around. The one that probably is a problem is the film study. They should get everyone together and watch the film so they are accountable. If you send a guy home and tell him to just look on his ipad, he more than likely will not do it.
