Random - there's a green dot on this guy's helmet

You might notice some players have a green dot on the back of their helmet. That means that they have a radio in their helmet. The radio lets them hear calls from the coaches on the sidelines. The quarterback has the green dot - and there can only be one green dot on the field at a time per team. Sometimes, the defensive captain on the team will have a dot too.

Just in case you were wondering...
