Raheem Morris Adds Video Monitor To The Sideline During Falcons’ Practice For Enhancement

Flowery Branch, Ga – Atlanta Falcons are back at Flowery Branch for the third week of OTAs.  Head coach, Raheem Morris, is being creative when it comes to elevating practices. Morris has brought in a video monitor to be on the sidelines for coaches and players to take advantage of correcting mistakes while on the fly.

“The play happens and you get the wide view and the wide view goes on a loop until the next play starts,” explains Morris. “It allows you to look up at video board on the loop of the play that just went while the play is being called.”

The advantage of this new addition to practice is the coaches are able to gather a lot of information while getting ready for the next play and even calling the next play. It allows them to give the players immediate feedback on the last play.

Morris believes that it helps more than just with feedback, it’s like getting in an extra film session of that practice all at one time.

“What is the thing coaches are always looking for? They’re always looking for time,” stated Morris. “And that saves us time and that’s another time-saving tool.”

This isn’t an idea that Morris came up with himself. He “stole” it from the Los Angels Rams and saw how productive it was for the their head coach Sean McVay and their staff when he was a part of it.

According to Morris, players will enjoy it as well.

“Jalen Ramsey, coaching him in L.A., was hard to get him off the boards until the next play,” said Morris.

Before Training Camp starts, Morris is hoping to have two video boards on the sideline. Morris feels this will enhance practice all while speeding up the process of progression.
