Default [Chron] DeMeco Ryans to be mic'd up on defense

Thought you DeMeco Ryans fans (Which is probably everybody) would like this. Off-season fluff, but cool none the less.

Watchout Peyton. There's a new audible caller on the field now.

Was there really any doubt that Ryans would be the guy with the transmitter?

I suppose not, but who do they give the other helmet to if Mr. Ryans cannot be in on the play for whatever reason.

Doesn't Mario call plays for the D-line?

In most defenses, the Mike makes the calls for the front seven.

Yes but in the event that Ryans can't do it, would you trust a backup with calling the plays?

A Mike LB in the NFL better be able to make play adjustments, whether he is a backup or not.

Good question. CC Brown perhaps? The staff seems to think highly of him. Maybe Mario?

That's why I mentioned Mario. I thought he called D-line audibles/plays/whatever at some point last season. Plus, he's a 3-down end I think.

I know C.C. is in on a lot of snaps, but I just don't know how that would work. I would think you would want your most intelligent player with the mic in his helmet, even though it's just to call out plays. I have no idea.

Some are better than others, hence starters and backups.

Default Re: [Chron] DeMeco Ryans to be mic'd up on defense

Considering DeMeco will be on the field unless *knocks hard on wood* he gets injured, I would suspect that his replacement would have the the back-up receiver in their helmet. I don't think you can have two on the field at the same time, therefore DeMeco and CC could never be on the field at the same time....

Just a thought.....


Bottom line, here's to hoping we never, ever have to find out.....

I'm not sure if they'd even have another player in there to call the plays. Would Mario or CC (or whoever it would be) also have a mic in their helmet, but could only be turned on when Demeco isn't in the game? Maybe they'll just go back to using hand signals on the few snaps that Demeco is out.

There will be 2 helmets that have mic's on defense, but only one can be on the field at a time. So if the worst thing possible happens, I don't know who it would be. Maybe they let "Smooth" Will Demps have the other one in case of emergency. You never know.

Why can't they just leave these boys alone and let them CONCENTRATE on football!! Damn, I miss the good old days when players just went out there and kicked the snot out of each other. Don't mind me, just reminising. (If I spelled that wrong, I don't care!)

I thought the interesting point of the article was the technical one.

Quarterbacks already have some issues with the system working, and hopefully they don't get involved with much contact.

How is this system going to working after DeMeco busts people up all game?

More physically talented, yes.

But to be a Mike LB in the NFL you have to at least know how to make play adjustments.

I believe in time Adibi will be the backup miked player. Hes very inteligent and was a team leader in college. Cant wait to see him lined up next to Demeco.
