It is a banner day for people who love football to an unhealthy degree. Word leaked out Friday that "All-22" Coaches Film will be available for every play on NFL Game Rewind this year.

Yes, we confirmed this news with the appropriate NFL overlords before posting. You'll have a few options to watch the games. You can watch using the broadcast feed, with the option to click on Coaches Film on any play. Or you can just go all Coaches Film, all the time. That's all we ever wanted.
Well, we also asked for Game Rewind to be available on tablets. That wish will come true too for iPads and Android devices. We also heard about another very cool feature that has yet to be revealed as well.
Some reaction on Twitter:
2012 coaches film will be available on NFL Rewind. I know a few guys that had to change their underwear after seeing that.â Seth Payne (@PayneNFL) June 15, 2012
And the great thing is you can slow each play down and rewind, etc. Great to see play development. Time has finally come for this.â Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) June 15, 2012
Coaches Film was available on Game Rewind last year, but it was only there for a portion of the plays. It was a tease. Getting every play offers fans a chance to see what coaches and players see. It could even lead to better analysis on ATL. We just need to find the time to watch everything.
This post might seem like an extended advertisement for an NFL product written on NFL.com. That would be accurate. But I've been a Game Rewind addict for years before I arrived here and will remain one years after they come to their senses and fire me.
And I know a lot of you folks out there are as excited as I am.
