In Denver, playbooks are out and iPads are in

The NFL is modernizing.


The Broncos are phasing out paper playbooks in favor of iPads.

The Denver Post reports that the 500-page playbooks and paper game plans and scouting reports of the past are gone, as this year everything is being handled electronically, with iPads.

Some of the advantages to iPads over paper are obvious: Instead of 11 Xs and 11 Os showing players' alignments, and arrows showing players' movements, an iPad can allow players to watch actual game tape of the play in question. But the Broncos think another advantage is that players will spend more of their personal time studying if they can do it more easily.

"The advantage is that when they leave the building, they can take everything home with them very easily and watch tape at night and review the game plan installation," Broncos G.M. Brian Xanders said. "This is their full-time job — to prepare and do whatever they can to help us win each week.

I think its a good plan.
I hope they dont get IJacked by any Saints personel.
That's a nifty little idea.
Did the Broncos have to create an app for that?

Wonder if there will be a bounty on the ipads?
That's actually pretty brilliant.
