Of course we could always use dummy signals to cross them up.......couldn't we? Brilliant!
I would argue that the Texans system is not unique and probably on occassion uses some form of dummy calls and signals. while peyton is the most demostrative and does it more than other, check with me calls are not unique.
My general take is that even with all the attempts at deception etc. that 90% the time defenses and offense know what each are doing and the difference is in who blocks, tackles, runs, and catches better.
