Re: Wade Phillips Blitz Packages
It looks to me that the Texans have a lot of versatility in their guys.
As somebody already mentioned, Barwin had played second level LB in 2010 - all over the place.
Reed showed the ability to flex his hips in coverage; he can certainly play ILB.
Mercilus had played plenty of 34 DE; he even lined up on the Guard at times.
By the way, in Wade's scheme, the NT can drop back in coverage (I've seen them doing it, but I don't think Cody ever did, however.)
Basically, they just sit in the short hole; nothing to it.
