On-field communications between coaches has been a problem during certain games this season, but the NFL is working toward implementing a new communications system that could help solve those issues.
At next week's Pro Bowl, the NFL will test a new and improved coach-to-coach communication system, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. If the test goes smoothly, the new system could be implemented for the 2016 season. The hope is the new system will end in-game communication issues that have been experienced by some teams.
The new system has already been tested in several stadiums this season, Rapoport added.
"We were listening to the Patriots' radio broadcast for the majority of the first half on our headset," Tomlin said, pointing out that radio problems are "always the case" at Gillette Stadium.
If the new system works well, postgame complaints such as Tomlin's could be history.
