If anyone ought to be complaining about the height of the Cowboys Stadium Video Screen, it should be Mat McBriar.
But he really doesn’t care. Really.
“Our game plan is to kick to the sidelines. So for myself it’s not in my mind,” Cowboys punter Mat McBriar said Monday. “I know it’s there, obviously. But it’s not something that catches my eye as much as guys who are kicking straight down the field.”
Instead, the NFL has launched a review of the screen that it inspected and improved months earlier. This all comes after a Titans punter hit the screen–purposely!
Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher, the co-chair of the NFL’s competition committee, said the height of the boards “is an issue.” The NFL has said it will monitor the situation.
I do not think Fisher should be using his position to incite change. No change is needed just because no one else has a scoreboard like that. An NFL punter should be able to punt the ball lower than 90 damn feet in the air and be successful.
