You sound ridiculous.
Scout team is not a full set of offensive players. It consist of the practice squad players and your bottom of the roster back ups.
There is no offensive coach running the scout team for the defense. You think case Keenum is going to go out there with roc Carmichael at wr and simulate the patriots offense?
The only work the texans defense could have possibly gotten throughout the year against a real offense would have been during team sessions when the offense went up against the defense.
First of all, thank you for the kind words.
The purpose of the scout team is to simulate your opponent... and our opponent is known to do that quick snap. So a prepared defense should have practiced this against the scout team.
And yes, I expect Case & Roc to be simulating the Patriots offense. Of course they are not going to be exactly the same, but they can at least simulate a quick snap.
