And even if you think a defense is in man coverage if you can't audible a route of a receiver to take advantage it doesnt matter.
Keyshawn Martin could have a mismatch in the slot and we wouldn't audible to take advantage of it like say Brady would do with welker or hernandez or gronk or one of his rb's out wide.
The offense is truly set up as a system where you can take less talented players and still be somewhat successful. That's fine, but its the NFL and you need special players to put it over the top. Maybe schaub can be special with more freedom. I don't know.
No, you cannot always tell whether it's going to be true zone or man coverage just by motion. But if I motion my receiver from left to right and your CB don't follow my receiver, I like that very much, thank you.
