    At least two NFL head coaches are impressed with today's rule change that will allow a defensive player to wear a communication system inside their helmet.
    Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis and coach Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints were both for the ruling at the league meetings in West Palm Beach, Fla.
    "It kind of gives a degree of equity to the defense,'' Lewis said. "I think that there's still going to be an opportunity where you have to signal and be prepared. But I do think it will enable some communication and even enhance some young players earlier.''
    One player, most likely a linebacker, will wear a specially made helmet equipped with a communication device. A backup player also will be designated with a communication helmet, in addition to his regular helmet, in case the starter is injured.
    "I think it is good,'' Payton said of the new system. "I'm sure they'll be little glitches we have to work through, but I'm glad it passed.''








    I think this is a good thing personally.

    I think it should be Edwards as the primary and Johnson as the backup.

    The wording in that article is rather vague.

    Do they mean that a backup player (non starter) will be given one of those helmets with the communications gear, or another starter will be the backup communications guy in case the one that had the communications has to go out for a play?

    "Defensive coaches now will have the ability to put radio speakers in two helmets, but only one of those helmets will be allowed on the field on a given play."

    - Taken from John Clayton article today.

    I don't know if that helps. I'm assuming anybody can take the headset if the starter gets hurt.
