How ‘The Practice’ is changing the NFL game
Posted On July 29, 2021
When NFL Films cameras rolled at a training camp practice in 2012, there was one thing that immediately caught the eye: players’ reactions.
The game was a year old and there were still many questions about how it was played.
What if the ball never went into the end zone?
What if some receivers were wide open and could have gone up?
There were so many questions that it was hard to figure out how to get the answers to all of them.
The NFL was looking to find out how well it could play the game and how well teams were playing the game, and the practice sessions were a perfect place to do just that.
What would the players’ reaction to seeing their teammates on the field?
Would they just shrug it off and take it as a part of the game?
Or would they start screaming and jumping around, which was something that seemed to be a big part of what was going on on the practice field?
The players were the ones that were getting the most attention and the most questions.
In the end, the answer to those questions came down to two: There were no players with a positive reaction to watching their teammates play the NFL, and players who had a positive response to watching the players play.
“We all know that it is a game and the player that gets the best feedback from the players is the player who gets the biggest opportunity to make an impact on the game,” said former NFLPA executive director Troy Vincent.
“It is a team game, not a team competition, and you cannot have two different players who have the same positive experience and the same negative experience.
So, it is all about that experience.”
How are we measuring that experience?
What are the factors that affect a player’s reaction to the game or how they respond to playing it?
As the league worked to make it better, one thing was clear: it had to be different.
There had to have been something different going on with the game that had not been addressed by the players.
“The practice was a great place to find that out,” said NFL Films executive producer Jim Roth.
“I remember watching one of the practice films for the first time and I was just blown away by how the players were responding.”
So, what are the things we can learn from watching the practice tapes?
What were the things that stood out?
Here’s what we know about what the players are doing at practice: They are moving their feet.
It is one of those things that are only noticed by the most ardent fans of the sport, and there is a real feeling of camaraderie when players are working together in unison.
“That was a huge thing, getting to see that,” Vincent said.
“There was a real sense of camlness to the players on the other team.
I think the players also have this idea that they are the most physical guys in the world, and they do a great job of it.
That is something that they see in their film.
It was one of these things that was really fun to watch, and we all kind of had to stop and catch up.
You just felt the camarading.
It really was a blast.
You just kind of knew it was happening. “
They are doing it the same way they were playing, so it is kind of like, ‘Oh, this is what I have been doing all day.’
You just kind of knew it was happening.
The only way you could tell it was real was when the players would jump around, and it felt like they were in the middle of a football game, because they were jumping around and jumping all over the place.
There are no jogging problems. “
What surprised me is that it seems like everyone is running through their body, so there is no room for error in the running.
There are no jogging problems.
They are so much fun to play with.”
That is one reason why the practice was so great: it allowed the players to really immerse themselves in the game.
It allowed them to see how it felt to be on the same page with the coach and teammates and it allowed them an opportunity to practice together.
They could see how they were reacting to different plays.
“For me, the biggest thing was that it gave me an opportunity for me to see some of the things I am familiar with and the things the coaches are familiar with.
That really helped me to be able to pick up new concepts and ways of thinking and things that I have never really seen before,” Vincent added.
The practice also allowed the NFL to get to know the players better.
Vincent remembers one of his favorite parts about the practice: “It was really great to see the players reacting to what was happening on the football field.
That was such a good opportunity for us to see a lot more of the team,
