    There were some reports about an issue with the plays being relayed from Callahan through Wade Wilson to the QB in OTAs. Myself and others had questioned why Callahan couldn't just call the plays directly into the QBs headset.

    Good find. That woudl explain why the QBs always have to get on the phone on the sideline to talk to those upstairs.

    What's the general view of the playcaller being able to scan the entire field from above? I would think it would give him a much quicker read on the defense and therefore a better idea of what to counter with.

    And this really explains the wrist bands on the quarterbacks. Shorthand is faster.

    I am curious if the QB helmet's speaker is "live" during plays. If so, then the play caller could warn the QB of a blind side blitzer coming his way.

    I'm pretty sure its turned off with like 20 seconds or so to go on the play clock.

    They turn them off with 15 seconds left.
