Everyone always talks about the Texans zone running scheme.  Here I looked at a play the Texans ran against the Ravens and showed what exactly they do and why it is successful against teams that over pursue (:gulp: like the Bills)

I'll be happy to answer any questions/comments

The ROLB also ends up not setting an edge.

Just had a vision of this zone running scheme parting our D like the Red Sea and Arian Foster skipping--literally--into the promised land.

I wonder how Spiller would do in a "one cut and go" type of offense.  If they could convince him to do it, I bet he would be awesome.

If we did, we wouldn't have a problem when the guy cut. Just saying.

I wonder if Foster will have a hard time running on us. The Bills D will over-pursue so much and there may be so many open gaping cut back holes, it may confuse him!!

if we did this, we wouldnt be gashed for 1,000 yards rushing per game, maybe if Wanny keeps saying it, it will magically occur?
