Re: Texans Offense Question?
With as much motion as the Texans use, there are less need to audible.
Each motion can be thought of as an audible.
When Schaub sent a receiver in motion from left to right; he can tell whether the D was in man or zone coverage.
When he sent Casey out from the backfield, he can see what kind of adjustment the D made. He then may have a second level of audible; he may change the play from a run to a pass, but now since the Offense is in a different formation from how they originally lines up, it becomes a completely different plays.
And like I've discussed before, Kubiak's offense now uses a whole lot more motion to show a whole lot more different formations each game as compared with the time he was in Denver.
In Denver, you may see 35 different formations out of a 60-play game.
Now, one might see as many as 50 some different formations.
In principle, this helps the QB to read what the defense is trying to do.
