I know QB's have microphones in their helmets so they can get their call from the coach but can they also speak back to the coach? Or is it just a one-way line?


One way. There is only communication from the sidelines to the helmet.

A speaker is in the helmet, not a microphone.

In part, rule 5-3

ARTICLE 3. SPEAKERS IN HELMETS.

The Coach-to-Player system allows a member of the coaching staff in the bench area to communicate to a designated offensive or defensive player with a speaker in his helmet. Communication from the coaches’ booth via the system is prohibited. The communication begins once a game official has signaled a down to be over, and is cut off when the play clock reaches 15 seconds or the ball is snapped, whichever occurs first.

I had no idea this rule was so specific. Thanks for the answer man.

Wait so for teams whose coordinators are in the booth, does the coordinator have to radio down to someone on the field then from there to the QB??

One-way. Bortles was confused last year when nobody responded to him cause he assumed it was two-way.

it's definitely not, but i do have a relevant, yet minor story. in a broncos game with brian griese at QB (iirc the game was at mile high), it was windy and he couldn't hear the mic (likely because of the wind going past the ear hole. he had to signal with his hands for the coach to repeat the call.
