But that same guy is now the most conservative in the league.

Something must have happened between then & now.
Ummmm...I don't recall ever reading that any team was taking offensive pointers from a 6-10 Texans team. Especially once you consider, they had just discovered the gem they had in Arian & were finally attempting to become a bit more balanced after being a pass heavy team w/ an ineffective run game in 2009. Seems a bit of a reach to say others were trying to imitate a team that didn't even have all its pieces & were trying to figure out its own identity. This offense is not being ran similar to what it was when Schaub was amongst the league leaders at QB & Chris Brown was the rb. I think that's safe to say.
