How many tells does the Bulldogs offense have?

I remember someone posting that you could tell if we were running or passing based on Theus' stance.

I noticed last night that you can tell if we're running or passing out of the shotgun formation based on how the running back lines up in relation to Murray.

For example, if Murray and the running back are even with each other (meaning their feet are set on the same yard line) then it's a pass play. But if the running back's feet are set about a half yard back from Murray, then you know it's going to be a running play. If I was a bit more computer savvy, I'd post pics from last night's game illustrating my point. If anyone else wants to help in that regard, it would be much appreciated.

I'm not sure if this is something that opposing defenses can spot while they're on the field, or if it's only easily discernible from the overhead camera angles provided on television. But a tell is a tell, and it doesn't seem like a good thing to me.

Also, I can't take solo credit for picking up on this. I only noticed it because I was watching a game a week or 2 ago and a commentator pointed out that a different team was doing this exact same thing when they lined up in the Shotgun formation. That's what made me look for it in last night's game.
