You can subtly make a call like that on occasion, but sometimes you're going to have to back out...go to shotgun...move your RB...Give a call to the O-line...and then let the receivers know what you want them to do with a signal. And sometimes if there isn't a signal for it, you might have to yell out a call and they might have to come in closer to hear you and then go back and get set.
Again, my problem with that approach is it alerts the defense. The safety you were planning to exploit stops cheating because he sees (hears?) you changing the play and suspects (knows?) "he's been made" (as they say on the cop shows) and stops "cheating".

The guy (#??) who subbed in temporarily now knows that he's been targeted for exploitation. And so do his teammates so he get's a little help.

No, I like the stealth approach. If we can't see the play alteration, then maybe the defense can't either.

Personally, I think Peyton and Brady do the same thing. All that flapping and pointing is done every dang play so that the D cannot tell when they're REALLY changing the play vs. when they're just putting on a show.

So what's the diff at the end of the day. ...other than being more demonstrative to the great, unwashed masses of fandom (us).
