There are several protection schemes that we use.
"We", Coach Benton?

Actually, on B-gap looks, the Texans coach double-dueling. That's their philosophy unless there are mitigating circumstances in terms of the rest of the defensive front. It's not up for debate. The go through practice sessions with guards working the double-duel technique. I spent about 5-10 minutes after practice last year with Coach Benton speaking specifically about it and why they use that when it can allow interior pressure into a non-mobile QBs face.

Personally, I don't think Schaub is mobile enough or confident enough to have pressure in his face and respond well. I would rather block one and let him know who he (Schaub) is responsible for. That's just my mindset with this QB. Most teams are getting away from double-dueling because it is so difficult.
