It means it's the communications helmet. A team can only have one on the field at a time.

Ya, that sounds right. I would have guessed so that the QB knows which helmet was his :-B

he is right, they made a deal about it during the preseason. Guys like Seneca Wallace that come in to play QB and WR sometimes have to have 2 helmets

Question: Do any defensive players have the "green dot" on their helmet? Are they allowed to have receivers in their helmet to hear play calls?

No and No. As I said, only one player on the field at a time can have a green dot. The defense players could have one, but none do at the moment

Why not? Why can't the defensive play caller have the same responsibility as the offensive quarterback?

Ok, thanks. So the dot keeps teams from having more than one on the field at one time. I guess the NFL needs rules like that in place to keep teams from cheating like the Patriots ;-) (I had to go there)
