    The player making the defensive calls. Usually the MLB.

    Sam Cowart is the frontrunner at MLB. I'd say Sam Cowart.

    It would be fun to give it to PBuch, only in a test/development environment of course. :)

    I was watching "6 days to Sunday" with Dunta Robinson and CC Brown was responsible for calling the defense on 1 play that Dunta missed coverage on...Hoke went up and asked Dunta what the call was and he said such and such...and Hoke was like ahhhhh they called the wron coverage etc....

    Usually the MLB calls the D from what I understand

    There are two different calls made--the MLB will generally call the front 7 and the FS will call the secondary.
