In the NFL, the green dot on the helmet of a football player is used to represent that the player has a speaker in his helmet, to receive plays from the coaches. That is why the quarterback has one on his helmet. Starting in the 08-09 season a defensive player will also be allowed to have a speaker in his helmet and will therefore have a green dot on it.
