I can't remember the season but for example on a scripted play the Texans ran a reverse to Kevin Walter - everyone was huh? - WTF? Later in the game the Texans showed the same look, got the same D alignment and torched them for a long bomb. It was set up by what they saw on the scripted play.
However, since we're only practicing a number of sets of plays each week (instead of the whole playbook) it also makes sense that since the players have time for the same reps more than if we were to practice more plays (more different route combinations), Schaub can get his timing down with his receivers better.
