    Faux explained it during the game.
    I couldn't believe it and had similar thoughts to Wells.
    That another team will use it against their opponent.

    It's not just a terrible idea. It's a dumb dumb dumb idea.
    I wonder who thought of this one?
    Did the Pats coach, Bill Bellacheat come up with this idea?
    Even not, I'm sure he's doing cartwheels and clicking his heels over this.

    Word, Talk about giving the D a big helping freaking hand. Although GB could use it to their advantage and basically change the audibles to something else to trick the D if they were trying to learn the offense. Talk about a PITA to have to change your audibles every game. How often do they change them during a season?

    I'd go to a silent snap count during the games they had the mics on the center. F em.

    wow that's crazy, but just how fast can the defense adjust in the time of 2 or 3 seconds before the snap? is the idea that the DC would be watching the broadcast in the booth, listen, and then change the play, that sounds pretty hard to do in time

    It wouldnt have to be done at that moment. They could trend the calls. In other words if a team makes adjustments at the line, and the opponent notices (hears) the call from the QB and then then adjusts the defense, the only thing the D-Coord would have to do is say "every time Rodgers says ANIMAL (example), they are changing the WR routes to curls" or something along those lines, after he notices the trend (every time Rodgers says animal, the offense adjusts).

    I understand the concern

    Its stupid, I understand wanting to make the fans feel more into the game but it can be abused. You basically have a microphone in the huddle and its an accident waiting to happen. I want less technology in the game, I am already sick of all the instant replays.
