    Interesting article about jumbotrons

    Found this article and didnt know how often the players actually look at the jumbotron while running with the ball or even blocking.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/feature/featureVideo?page=jumbotron

    Moore and tice featured. Long but interesting.

    Cris Carter was the master of using the jumbotron to know where the ball was.

    He's the one who turned Moss on to it.

    Re: Interesting article about jumbotrons

    Something about Jumbotrons, that I saw on REAL Sports, was that the home teams really don't show the opposing player highlights, especially if it is something that a visiting coach would like to review or challenge. It is a true homefield advantage. If it is a controversial call for the home team that they are thinking about reviewing, the Jumb tries to show as much as fast as possible.

    It even showed a visiting coach waiting for the replay to show up and it never did, like the coach actually thought (hoped) he would see a review. The story was done in Det and Cin.

    I tried to watch it, but it kept stopping and starting.

    Same with chad johnson and steve smith. They could actually do there celebrations before they actually reach the endzone and taunt the pursuing defenders.

    If you read the article, you'll see that THIS is why Michael Vick is the most OVERRATED QB in the league:

    "Michael Vick" wrote:
    Dunn's Atlanta teammate Michael Vick also watches replays on the big screen -- for two reasons.

    "Maybe if it is an incomplete pass, just to see my mechanics or what I did that was wrong," Vick said. "But most of the time to look at myself, and make sure that I'm looking good in my uniform."
