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.
There have been several coaches (including the Ravens and Bengals) who've said they study the Texans offense in the off-season. When Leach went to the Ravens, they had him give them pointers in how to block the ZBS the way we do.
