    If I was a DC I'd only want to use it to tell them something they might miss like "notice Steve Smith in the slot" or "THERE'S 12 DEFENDERS ON THE FIELD"

    Simple **** that can lead to big impacts. Most teams have a solid enough leader somewhere anyway that they don't need this crap.

        Yup, looks like no one else can either. Howard Mudd may be out of a job!

          I think this is a combination of Spygate and the Giants' Super Bowl run fostering a general increase in interest regarding defense (see the No Push-Out and Anti-Stiff Arm proposals).

          This way, the defensive coordinator could easily call the base defense for every play. It would be the defensive captain's job to call the audibles.

              i like this rule, but who do you give teh radio to if your the DC? if your the bears who have a great everydown LB like urlacher, then it makes perfect sense to give it to him.

              but what if your a team that doesnt? you have a bunch of garbagy nobodies there and none of them are guranteed to stay in on every play....do you maybe go safety? the d-lineman and some CBs are always swapping...

              itll be interesting to see how teams do this anyway
              There are generally two play-callers on defense, just like there are two play-callers for offense.

              The center calls blocking assignment before each play, and the QB directs the skill position players and informs them what their responsibilities are before each play.

              On defense the middle linebacker changes assignments for anyone in the box based on the look the offense is giving, and the free safety calls the plays for the secondary.

              So the #1 radio would probably go to the free-safety in that case.

                  Still won't help the Rams much unless we can put 22 guys on the field.

                    Good rule evens the playing field a little bit with all of the offensive minded rules that we have in the game to day

                      They will invest in a scanner to steal the audio calls. the new rules can't stop Bill

                          oh for chrissakes READ! Bill Belichick was heavily in favor of this move.

                          They cheated, they paid the price, now stop complaining about it. Enough with the hellfire and brimstone already.

                            Yeah, because he hasn't produced some of the best offensive lines in this decade. Haven't you beaten this dead horse enough?

                            Anyway, what I find interesting about this move is teams are going to be allowed to have 2 defenders with the communication helmets, but those players can't be on the field at the same time. Interesting to me because this is one of the main reasons it passed. Personally, I don't know of a defense that doesn't have at least one every down player, so, while I know there are a lot more substitutions and shifts on defense, I don't get why the second communication helmet is needed. Does anyone here know that their team doesn't have a single every down defender?


                            The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

                            If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

                              this really allows defenses to do a lot of things. Im very anxious to see what Spags and AP do with this new feature.

                              I go back to the SB, and Spags gave AP 2 plays, the playcall, and if Brady adjusted his protection, an audible that would attack those protection adjustments. Doing something like that in every game from now on is going to be a lot easier with the headset, and Im assuming our pass rush will be even better bc of it.

                              Having a smart MIKE is even more important now than it was before. Im very anxious to see what we do with this. This benefits our defense probably more than anyone elses bc of AP and our blitzing style.
