    Omaha and the Mike?

    Will Eli continue to utter these words on every play?

    After all, it's April.

    the position of MLB.... the player himself... the man who holds the position of Middle Linebacker..... i snot necessarily going to be the "mike" that is called out for the blocking scheme

    Question I have based on their comments is if the SAM becomes the Mike because of safety pressure on the strong side, who's responsible for a blitzing MLB?

    the MLB and the "mike" are not always synonymous

    the only time they would be is if the MLB was the actual "free man"

    they are not calling out the position ... they are calling out the man unaccounted for
    I hope in 100 years I know half as much about football.

    in laymens terms ... he is basically the unaccounted for man in the O lines blocking scheme for that particular play.....

    sometimes saying....55 is the mike.... is just like saying .... hey FB 55 is your responsibility
