Seeing is believing as NFL pass approaches
By Mike Sando
The St. Louis Rams' experimentation with Google Glass technology rewards us with personalized views showing what quarterback Sam Bradford and receiver Tavon Austin see when connecting on a pass.
I particularly liked the view from Austin's perspective as the pass from Bradford bore down on him. Many of us have caught a football in the yard, but snaring one of the the super-sized NFL footballs from a pro quarterback? That's tougher than it sometimes appears. Austin's view more accurately shows how quickly the ball is approaching.
Bradford, Austin and general manager Les Snead considered the possibilities with ESPN's Katie Linendoll in the video above.
