Default Texans Offense Question?

Do the Texans audible on offense? After rewatching the 2 playoff games it doesn't seem that they do very much if at all. What is your thoughts on this? Am I wrong on this?

= an audible.

And that pic from the AFC Divisional Game. Anytime you see that, that's an audible. I think they should do it more, but who's to say they don't...

Looks like he's in the shotgun & how do we know he's not signaling something in a hurry up offense or signaling for a silent count considering the crowd noise? Don't believe that photo is necessarily the best proof as I'm not quite sure that is an audible & it has been discussed by more then just the fans concerning the Texans lack of audibles.

Many, fans & some media, have claimed Kubiak is a control freak who has a short leash on Schaub & allows very limited audibles. Considering some of the play calls against certain defensive fronts that should've seemed doomed from the get go, its easy to believe that kubiak doesn't allow much changing of the plays he initially sends in. This is not the 1st time that the offense & its lack of adjustments by calling audibles has been questioned.

I found this article a while back.
Quote:
The key aspect: Griffin has options when he comes to the line of scrimmage. While the offensive line and backfield perform a running play, the receivers run a different passing play. Shanahan stressed Griffin wasn't using an audible; Griffin decided what play to run based on what the defense showed him.
I think we do something similar. Every play has different options built in. We make adjustments to the plays after Schaub sees what the defense is doing. The guy in motion, for instance, doesn't have to be put in motion if Schaub believes his current position & route is favorable to what the defense is showing us. When he is put in motion, he might have two or three different stop points & the one chosen puts him in a favorable position. That position may help him, may open another route, or may provide a natural pick.

Same thing with our running game. Just because it's a stretch to the right, there are a dozen or so adjustments that can be made to make it more successful. If the right is so overloaded, then the left should be much more favorable & we know Schaub has the ability to change the direction of the run. If we stretch it to the short side of the field, I personally believe that had to have been an audible.

We've got a very prolific offense, so it doesn't make sense to me that people would think it's stale & incapable of adjusting to what's going on in real time. Whether we're talking about scoring, yards, T.O.P. we're at the top of the league.

We've got red zone issues, no doubt about it. But the "Matt Schaub needs to be able to audible more!!" stuff is over-played.

Why not call the audibled play first?

There are options on plays. Things are pre determined. If you see this then we are doing that.

We don't have creative audibling. If Matt sees single coverage on Aj he's not calling a play to take advantage of that. He's not audibling on the fly, basically what I call creative audibling.

Its all pre determined and he just calls what has been discussed during game prep.

Problem with that is when defenses do something they haven't seen before. Matt's not given the creative freedom to fully take advantage of things he sees that he may believe he can take advantage of.

My understanding is Gary does not give Schaub any latitude to call plays from LOS reads, only check to a predetermined option.

I'd be interested to know what percentage of the top QBs can call a play from the LOS? You'd have to think Manning, Brady, Brees, Roethlisberger(pre-Haley)...
