The way TV networks should do football games


Am I the only one who wishes there were replays that showed a top down view of plays? That way, you could see the equivalent of a diagram of the play. Blocking schemes would be more obvious. The receiver options a quarterback had would be clearer.

Another thing that bothers me is that there are not more cameras following individual players. That way, you could see, for example, if a receiver gave up on his route, a tight end held his block or a safety reacted slowly to a play.

I would also like to see more views from the perspective of the quarterback, the running back, the free safety and the middle linebacker. At games, there is always a camera that roves just above the players and it seems like having multiple cameras like that would allow for more action.

Instead, there are a lot of ground level views from the line of scrimmage, which reveals almost nothing about the play.

There's actually a lot of time between most plays and seeing more replays and more variation in the camera work would make the time between plays a lot more interesting.

I guess my fantasy would be to be a kind of director where there were lots of camera angles to choose from and I could decide which ones I wanted to review and for how long.

Of course, if the NFL did all that, I might become even more of a football zombie than I already am.
