Wade's what you(the QB) see is what you get defense.

“We definitely have a chance to disguise a little bit more as opposed to being out there like sitting ducks and you know just waiting for it to happen to us,” Jackson said of the difference in defensive schemes. “I think we’ll have a lot more chances to see the ball come out instead of having our backs to the ball and playing a lot of man. I’m sure we’ll play man, but we’ll defiantly mix it up a lot more than usual.”

then this from DJ...

“It’s a lot of adjustments but it’s all adjustments for the better,” Swearinger said on Thursday, after the Texans wrapped up their third day of OTAs. “We like it. I like it a whole lot better than last year because it gives us flexibility. We’ll be able to confuse a lot of quarterbacks, switching calls and stuff like that. I like it and just ready to keep going with it.”
http://www.csnhouston.com/football-h...-d-better-last


Right off the bat one of the things that Ed Reed butted heads with Wade about was disguising your defenses -- Wade didn't believe in it. Reed was done before he got here, but the dude was in every smart QB's head for years. (Watch A Football Life: Bill Belichick... he and Brady focus on Reed in their game-planning.)

I would love nothing more than to be shocked in this regard. I certainly do not want my perspective to be confirmed, but instead be blown out of the water.

nah, Schaub/Kubiak had a good offense for years. The Texans just had horrible defenses until Wade came along.

I was more shocked in 2013 when the team was never able to show even a glimmer of its 2011 & 2012 self. I was bathing in spiked koolaid during last year's pre-season. In my mind, it was a given that they would be in the playoffs. So it was just a question of how far could they go? Obviously, a 14 game losing streak was the last thing I expected.

So you have knowledge of all things the Pats put out in local media?

Maybe he is and maybe not. Probably most of the time we won't know exactly how Belichick would have handled something.

Pretty well known Belichick doesn't do a lot of these types of PR things. And yes my wife's family are huge Pats fans so I get some knowledge there.

It's well known Belichick doesn't give away much to the press in interviews. Not the same thing at all.

Aren't we in a great mood this beautiful Monday morning.

I like BOB doing that spot and no BB doesn't do things like that. Atleast that I've seen in the last decade.

Not much to go on but so far BOB looks like he is slowly defining he is his own man. I don't think we will see clone-guy at all. I do think he learned things from BB that he will emulate. I don't know why you mess with what you perceive works, and it's part of why he was hired in the first place. Experience in a winning system seems something Bob (McNair) coveted in Kubiak and the BOB.

Belichick did let an NFL Film crew follow him around for a year to make two episodes of A Football Life. That was very revealing.
