We don't audible, we adjust at the line for every play. That's where I'm worried about Yates not working with the first team.
Keep in mind that Yates ran essentially the same offense as the Texans in college, and I believe this was a major reason why Kubiak drafted him. He's got experience in the system, just not much at the pro level. As long as he's a competent QB, I think our fears can be put behind us.
