Default Scout team.....

Quote:
From wiki
a group of players on a team whose task is to emulate future opponents for the featured (or starting) players. Frequently used in American or Canadian Football, these teams consist of less athletically developed or less skilled players. However, unlike a traditional scrimmage, scout teams often have to learn a variety of different football playbooks in order to simulate the tendencies of future opponents.
From this definition & what I've heard in the past, the Scout team's primary objective is to basically be tackling dummies for the offense. They spend their week learning to look like the opposing team.

If that is the case, that means TJ Yates has spent the majority of his time over the last 3 months (practically his entire pro career) learning the offense of other teams, not the Texans.

Kellen Clemons is signed last Wednesday when the Texans finally put Schaub on IR. Did he run the scout team, did TJ, or did the Texans just run drills against a QB less team (we were only playing the Jags)

Did TJ get any snaps in our offense last week, or did Lienart get them all while Yates ran the scout team?

Is this week the first time TJ has been in "our" offense? I know it's similar to what he ran at NC, but the QB calls, line adjustments... that could all be very new to the young'n.

So how prepared is Tj, really?

But my real question, is who will run the Scout team? Jake Delhomme? The wily cajun with the big arm?

Or Kellen who has had even less success running an offense than Jake did?
