to throw some things in the mix, what do you guys think if the texans ran a split running back formation in which both foster and tate were in the backfield? using this, we can utilize both running backs. also, the backs can swing to either side and be used as receivers. having both backs also gives an option for more pass protection.

i know we use the single back formation and that makes the play action more effective but having more plays in the playbook, especially when our offense becomes more predictable, would be a great asset in my opinion.

of course i wouldn't run something like this at this time of year.
To be honest I wondered why we never tried running the wild cat a bit with Casey, Foster and Tate...that would be deadly IMO

Other then that, I don't think Schaub has the moxy to do anything like this or even manage a split back formation....
