Default Re: [Grantland] Hey, Don't F*$% This Up: The Houston Texans' Outdated Offense

First of all, it's weird. On the one hand, the author wants innovative, but when Casey is used unorthodoxly by Kubiak, the author took it badly.
That's inconsistent.

Secondly, the Texans haven't ran a pure zone for a few years now; they mix the gap scheme in liberally.

Thirdly, the Patriots had 3 more running plays (or something like that) than the Texans in the first half of their respective 16 regular season games.
I had provided the numbers before using Profootball Reference game play finder features.

And before we go on; I also compared Brady and Schaub before via Advanced NFL Stats. It shows that both QBs had attempted a similar percentage of deep balls (with receivers 15 yards beyond the LOS).
Drew Brees is also in this class.

It's just too easy for people to put everything in a box.
