Buccaneers will use Sidekiq to help Jameis Winston grow

Today the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that they will begin using the Sidekiq football-simulator software developed by EON Sports VR. The Bucs will begin using the system when training camp starts Aug. 1.  But do you think this will help Jameis grow as a quarterback?  The Bucs GM feels he will. 

“We are excited to be coming in on the front end of this new wave of technology that is designed to supplement the on-field and classroom work that our quarterbacks are already doing,” general manager Jason Licht said. “Obviously, there is no real substitute for being on the field when it comes to getting our players ready for game action. However, this virtual-reality technology allows us to enhance the learning experience for our quarterbacks without requiring them to put in additional time on the practice fields.”

The system uses computer-generated graphics to simulate game conditions and allows the user to custom-tailor a virtual game scenario from the same perspective they would see on the field during a game or practice session.

“Virtual reality has become very popular in high school and college programs, and there has recently been much more interest in the technology from professional sports teams looking to add to their teaching tools while limiting exposure to injuries that may occur in live-action situations,” EON Sports VR CEO Brendan Reilly said. “We are excited to get to work with the Buccaneers and provide their quarterbacks with the opportunity to train more efficiently than ever before.”

Jameis Winston is a very smart player already, and he loves to study film. This is a great investment by the Buccaneers organization, because Jameis will be addicted to it like a little kid is addicted to the XBox.  A football game that Jameis will turn into a studying tool. I think this was a smart move.
