NFL to Offer All-22 "Coaches' Film" for 2012

With access to the All-22 film, we'll finally be able to find out how Darian Stewart ended up like this.

Yay.

No, not every NFL fan is going to shell out $60 to rewatch games from an angle that does not lend itself to the television screen. Some will though. And those of us that do will be able to see things that standard television broadcasts just don't provide.

In my Prospect Playbook piece on Julio Jones, all four plays I included had instant replays broadcast afterward. It's pretty much impossible to get a good sense of how a receiver or tight end or cornerback or safety dynamically adjusts to space unless you can see the space.

That's what the coaches' film will provide.

It will show how wide receivers pull certain defenders into parts of the field that allows others to slip into a window. That's why coaches got tired of Randy Moss. When he wasn't the first read, he wasn't committed to working hard enough to get defenders to believe he was part of the play.

It will show us how safeties shift from going deep into a play if they're the safety valve at the back of the defense to an attacking role as someone catches a pass over the middle or the ball is handed off.

Maybe more important is what this suggests for the NFL - destroying barriers. This levels the playing field to the point that it's more about how much time you're willing to spend on the tape rather than the privilege of access.

21st century football, bro.
