Instinctively knowing whether my RW is a leftie or rightie also makes a huge difference, as it shaves milliseconds off of my decision-making process.
I haven't seen beer league teams have a lot of success running set plays, but I have seen them being successful by being able to predict what their teammates are doing and acting appropriately.
Agree 100%. I think "gelling" with your teammates is more likely than running set plays. Any outside effort is appreciated I think by most guys though, couldn't hurt to try new stuff out once in awhile and see what happens.
