    That's a possibility, seeing as that's the equivalent verbiage in GB.

    I'd imagine that Eli will still be calling out the protections.

    He will still call out "Omaha," only now it will mean something completely different! OOH, how mysterious and secret. And once defenses starts to figure it out, they will switch it over to "Talahassee."
    Do not feed the trolls.

    After all, it's April.
    Mike has nothing to do with any particular system

    it is identifying the Mike backer... which is not necessarily the MLB.... it is just the "free man " to be picked up in the particular blocking scheme that is in place on that particular down

    and Omaha is not really system based either .... simply a cadence call to alter the call to go on one

    both are universal football calls

    after all this talk about Omaha over the years here on the boards and hearing several other QBs use it how come people still dont know what it means and why do they think its a "tell" for the opposing defense?

    I'm trying to think back to when first heard a QB identify the Mike, and I really don't remember anyone before Eli. I'm sure Peyton must have been doing it though.

    Not all system or QB's do it the extent that we have and it will be somewhat interesting to see how these things change if at all.

    i feel like i read somewhere that the Center is responsible for the line protections on field in the GB offense. If that came over with McAdoo, do you think the Walton or whoever we have starting at center will be the one identifying the Mike for the rest of the line?
