Wristbands Take Sweat out of Calling Plays

Yes, but what about leg warmers and headbands? If we're gonna go 80s, let's go it right.

#10 - The "Kenny" play could be that same play in The Program where apparently the Mike LB's responsibility is to "kill everybody". How the coaches expect him to accomplish this alone on one play is beyond me, though it is possible he goes Last Boyscout on the offense and slaughters them in a hail of gunfire. Of course, if he has to reload, he might not get everyone before they can get a first down.

Although, personally, I see radio headsets as more of a strange addition than play cheat-sheets.

Damon Wayans could throw a football, from horseback, after getting shot in the hand, through the window of a private box and hit his target square in the nose to prevent his assassination. I don't care what kind of painkiller addiction he had, that guy could QB my team anytime.
