Computer science courses are popular among many NFL stars, and it’s only natural to assume that they’ll be used to help them excel on the field.
But, according to a study released last week by The Washington Post, those athletes are actually doing more damage than they realize.
According to the study, the average NFL player spends an average of more than half of his or her training time in “computer packages,” or the core of a computer program that allows them to analyze and process data.
The study also showed that players are spending more time on computer-based games than they do on physical activities.
While it’s important to keep in mind that computer programming isn’t necessarily an inherently “bad” skill, the study found that those who take it are spending significantly more time playing computer games than in their normal everyday life.
The study found players who take computer packages in college were more likely to score poorly on standardized tests, and they were less likely to have positive relationships with their coaches, teammates and teammates, the report said.
“The findings highlight the significant and growing impact of playing sports online on players’ performance on the football field, which is a significant public health concern,” the report read.
The research also revealed that players who took computer packages during the offseason were more than twice as likely to develop asthma.
While that’s probably nothing more than the effects of playing computer programs in the offseason, it’s still an issue that could have an impact on players who are at risk of developing asthma.
