What to look for with the new cameras for tonight’s Tennessee Titans game.

Let’s get this straight now, I do not like the idea of watching this Tennessee Titans game with these terrible camera angles.

There are a lot of cons:

-Hard to see whole field while staying close enough to see what is happening

-Don’t get to see the “depth” of plays as clearly

-You can’t see big plays developing

However, as much as I hate to admit it there are some things you can really get out of this new camera angle. I don’t like it, but if I have to watch it this is what I will be looking for.

Running back vision

When you are looking at the OL from the standard view, it is hard to see just how wide the running lanes open. It is difficult to tell if the RB missed the hole or if the hole was never really there.

However with this view you can see how well the line opens up holes and watch the play develop. It is also interesting to see quality backs set up linebackers for their offensive linemen to get better blocks.

Pocket movement

Instead of watching receivers or running backs run down the field, you are going to get the QB in your face for the whole game. One way this helps is it lets you see how well the QB manages with pressure and how he can move in the pocket.

Subtle moves and slide that you may have missed will be more obvious and you can see the small things a QB does to make a play work.

Defensive tackle play

It is nearly impossible to see a DT on a down to down basis and get the full measure of how he impacts a game from the standard angle. This angle will let you see the men in the middle clog lanes and beat guards and centers.

While this isn’t the most glamorous thing to watch, it is a part of the Titans defense that may need to be addressed this offseason. This will give you a good look on exactly why that is.
