What I'm saying is what you're saying makes 0 sense.....to me at least...
You think the defense doesn't know when calls are being made?
More subtle to you doesn't mean more subtle to the players on the field.
You're assuming a lot. Nowhere has any player or coach ever said "we call audibles, but we just try to do it stealthily as to not alert the defense"...They won't say that because it doesn't make any functional sense.
I don't understand what is wrong with saying Matt calls audibles, but not as freely or as often as some other QB's may call them. There's nothing wrong with that at all. Like Meyers said, the offense is designed so that they don't have to.
