All-22 Bound To Make Experts Out of Everyone

The NFL recently announced that it'll make "coach-cam" available to everyone.

Yes, that hidden mysticism surrounding the watching of tape. Players say they've spent countless hours watching film, checking tendencies, and identify formations and patterns. We see a dancing robot and a lot of sweet shots of Tony Siragusa, but then we can't see where the cornerback are or how the safeties moved in relation to the wide receivers' route patterns.

But not anymore, football fans. Now we have the power.

Ok, so there's not really power, per se, but there's going to be a lot more strongly educated football fans. In a day when anybody can write about football (obviously, because, y'know, I'm here and doing this right now) it is easy to second guess without information, but now we have this info.

Some coaches/front offices are concerned. There's the chance that this additional access will allow players/coaches/organizations/waterboys to be more scrutinized by fans than ever. However, the additional allowance for educated fans should make that go away.

It's not cheap, though. At $69.99, it's a pricy addition that could drive away the casual fan. We all know that Bears fans aren't casual, though. What's your opinion?
