The team continues to be an innovative leader in the NFL, as we reported earlier they are the first team to use iPads for playbooks and game-planning.  Buccaneers Head Coach Raheem Morris, who spearheaded the effort to convert the team’s playbook from paper to iPads this year, is thrilled that the franchise is once again pushing the technological envelope.

NFL teams to consider the use of iPad as playbook.

ipad

This is interesting news for those readers who are interested in Football, according to CNET.com several NFL teams are considering the adoption of iPads for the digitalization of their playbooks.

According to Pete Walsh, head of technology for the Cowboys, a “couple” of NFL teams are currently considering abandoning their playbooks in favor of iPads, this change could potentially save them as much as 5,000 pages of paper printouts per game.

While there is the potential of saving paper, Walsh added that a problem he sees with changing to the iPad is that the iPad isn’t seen in the NFL’s technology circles as being secure enough yet. For Walsh, who reports to famous Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, the mandate is clearly to protect the Cowboys’ intellectual property, and so he seemed prepared to wait to make the switch until he and his peers feel that devices like the iPad or its competitors can be used without causing anyone to lose sleep over how they might expose a team’s plans.

We are interested in seeing whether other teams might consider this as well, perhaps even in other sports. Personally I would love to me my Buccaneers implement the iPad in their play selection.
