      Buccaneers introduce tablets to NFL sidelines By Sander Philipse?@Sanderrp Jun 17 2014, 8:18pmtablet_zps34cdad73.pngKim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Lovie Smith and company are embracing technology, once again turning the Tampa Bay Buccaneers into tech pioneers in the NFL.The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are switching to Microsoft Surface tablets for their game-day, sideline sheets, according to the Tampa Bay Business Journal That makes the Buccaneers once again one of the first teams to introduce a new technology, after being the first team to use iPads to replace physical playbooks in 2011. Amusingly, the Bucs actually removed their use of iPads as playbooks under Greg Schiano, who preferred unwieldy bundles of paper instead. All the while, the rest of the NFL was switching to tablets as their main vector for distributing playbooks. It's not entirely clear whether the Bucs are re-adopting iPads (or other tablets) for their playbooks, but that seems likely given the fact that the Chicago Bears were using them under Lovie Smith, too. I can see a lot of different uses for tablets on the sidelines: you could immediately call up footage to show players what happened and analyse plays, rather than having to rely on those printed-out All-22 photos. You could also automatically tag each play with down, distance and game situation, which would facilitate in-game analysis of opponent play choices. Coaches could annotate plays as they happen to help with immediate and later analysis. Finally, they could use tablets to perform risk analysis on whether or not to go for it on fourth down, or whether or not to call a timeout. The only downside: holding a tablet in front of your mouth while you're signalling in plays looks a little silly.link

      Halftime adjustments? You mean adjusting the temperature and amount of food they eat?

      I know. I'd demand to have an 8-10 ounce filet waiting for me with some mashed potatoes at half-time.  Toss it back with a glass of wine then drop a load before heading back to the field.

      Real men don't admit when they're wrong, they simply try to bend reality so that their plan is right under other circumstances. Unless you're married. Then you're always wrong.

      Yet another reason Schiano needed to go. Change with the times. So glad Schiano is far from Tampa.

      Well, there you go, now we know why Freeman failed.  He didn’t have his Ipad to study every night.  [sarc]

      I wonder if tablets in the schiano era came with a chisel, or if they were expected to carve it by hand?

      Tablets came from bottles in the Schiano era.
