    I watched 2 or three footbal games yesterday and noted that the quaterbacks had what looked like a 1 inch Green DOT on the back of their helmat.

    Does anyone know what they are? what they are for.

    I saw one on the back of ROMOs helmet as well as Rivers and again tonight on Eli Manning. Again it is only the quaterback..

    Strange

    I think its the helmets with mic's. So the QB's know which is which.

    Not positive, but thats what I told my Dad when he asked and he bought it. :D

    Your right. That's what it is, only one offensive player is allowed to have a Mic and the green dot identifies him to the officials.

    Nope.

    The green dots indicate that the helmet has a radio in it. There can be only one on the field at a time.

    It's to stop the Patriots from beeming messages, from a secret location, into the helmets of Brady.


    voice: Okay, Tom, drop back two steps. Watch the guy on your left. Okay, now see the guy crossing in front of the safety? Throw the ball 30 yards to the right hash mark and we'll pick up the first. Okay, wait for my signal.....NOW! :D
