Sometimes you have two TE's sets as well, I don't recall the Texans using this too much.[/QUOTE]
Depends on how you define what is "too much" or "not much".

We used the 2-TE set a fair number of time.
As I had noted last year, on one play I even noticed that our two TEs lined up as outside receivers and the two receivers went into the slots.
On another play, we ran a 3-TE set with all 3 lined up on the strong side, I guess you can classify one of them as a H-back.
Chiefs game, AJ to the Hizzy. He was the only WR on the field on that play.

IIRC, Schaub's passer rating was highest with 2 or more TE's on the field. That's when teams really bit on the run fake and Schaub tore 'em up.
