The Cowboys have inked a two-year deal with StriVR Labs, a virtual reality sports startup, to train all of its quarterbacks using a VR headset, according to a source familiar with the deal. After donning the headset, players see a live-action 3-D video replay of a football play from the quarterback’s perspective, and can review that play from a first-person view over and over, looking in any direction.

Currently, StriVR’s technology is not interactive, but instead aims to teach quarterbacks decision-making skills in the context of a real play. It also aims to make it easier to give both starters and backup quarterbacks more opportunities to learn without needing the whole team on the field.



Did anyone really think Jerry Jones was not gonna not get drones and virtual reality systems for his players? Jerry is the way cooler version of that asshole executive at your work that always has to have the latest and greatest tech toys. Jerry probably sits in his office while some poor intern cleans his glasses stewing about what he’s going to buy next. “JumboTrons the length of a football field? I’ll take two. A state of the art indoor practice facility even though it’s like 70 degrees all year round in Dallas? Put it on the black card.” Big dick moves from a big dick franchise.

Pretty cool stuff coming out of Dallas, even though we’re only about five more concussion related deaths away from football becoming a completely digital sport altogether. If drones and virtual reality and gamer nerd shit can help Andy Dalton throw more TDs and less INTs someday then I’m 1000% in. I just hope Mike Brown decides to invest in virtual reality technology sometime before I can start depositing my social security checks. Wishful thinking.

PS- Wonder if Dez catches that ball in the cyber world?

About Q-Ball

Owner, operator AKA The Commish. Q-Ball is that asshole at the office who refuses to brew a fresh pot of coffee. Not because he doesn't want to, he's just too embarrassed to admit that he doesn't know how.
