    Can anyone explain what OB meant when he said "Houston was in 11 personnel"?

    I remember a few years ago when we were playing the Niners. And the Niners DC had a bunch of notes and the commentators were looking over his shoulder and saw them. And in big letters was "12" and the commentators were like "Wow. They're really worried about Jacoby Jones!"

    And I was like...

    :vincepalm:

    Uh. No. They're worried about our 1 RB/2 TE formation.

    The 1st number is for the backs,2nd is for tes. So 22 personel is 2 backs 2 tes which means 1 wr.10 personel is 1 back 0 tes and 4 wrs. They don't number designate the wr cause they figure you can add and subtract.

    In terms of buzzwords of multiple and hybrid,teams have been saying that for awhile. When RAC was the dc in ne,multiple was used a lot. Because they had a guy like jarvis gren on the bench and 2 jokers like vrabel and willie,it allowed them to change fronts in game. If they played a team with a midline passer,they would play more 4-3 front,but wen they played a more mobile qb and wanted better athletes on the field,they played more 3-4. That's why I truly think a lot of guys are in play for the texans defensively.
