Default Texans film study and the evolution of Kubiak's offense.

I'm going to start my vacation tomorrow and won't have the opportunity to get on board much, so I thought I just go ahead and present a bit of film study to "attempt" to show how much Kubiak's offense has evolved through the years.

As I rewatched several Texans games from this year to compare them to the seven Broncos games in 2007 and a Niners game way back when, I must say that this offense has come a long way.

It's so much more complex and sophisticated, the difference is like night and day (no matter the results.)

This offense that we're seeing here as compared to that 2007 Broncos offense can be seen as comparing a BMW with a Volks.

It's formation galore, play-action gallore, and a whole lot of more complex blocking schemes.
The motions are still there, sometimes less, but usually more.

When you add all these things together, there's little wonder why Arian Foster regards his HC as a premier chess player in the game of football.

And everything starts anew with each game, there has got to be a question on how the players can execute the different game plans at an optimum rate.

...
Before I go on, I just want to say that I like the concept of a forum much better than that of a blog for the same reasons that I like family/friend email groups (and forums) better than individual blogs.
Basically, I think it opens up the channel of communication.
In the long term, it works out well (of course, not without a lot of trying.)
...

Anyway, let me just present the long of it.
I will cap the middle and the end with the "short" so that one can skip ahead if they are bored with the details.
It is for the pure love of the game.
Sometimes I wish I can make it simpler.

For simplicity sake, and I happened to come across a Broncos game vs the Tacks in 07 in the break down to compare with the game we played against the Jags this year.

Purely coincidental, but the number of plays tied together for a decent comparison.

I won't bore you with the Broncos/Tacks breakdown.
Let me go straight to the Texans/Jags game.
