Steelers are using Helmet-Cams to get a better look at their players

Accorsing to Mark Kaboly the Pittsburgh Steelers used a new technology twice this week at practice. Ben Roethlisberger wore the ScuttVision first. It is a full contact-capable helmet with an integrated high-definition video system that records never-seen-before angles that can be used as a teaching tool. Antonio Brown wore it on day two.

The players said they have yet to see the video, but offensive coordinator Todd Haley was impressed.

“You can identify the fronts and when we are pointing out (middle linebackers) and stuff like that because usually the eyes are looking where he’s pointing,” Haley said. “You can see the direction the head is at the snap. It’s interesting technology. It’s a neat concept. We haven’t done a whole bunch with it, but the technology is phenomenal. If not for anything else, it forces the player that has it on to be on his P’s and Q’s.”

I don’t know if there will be players wearing these in the future but it sure would be interesting to see the film during a game. It would really allow you to see what the players do.
