Why dont we use the no-huddle?

I see alot of other teams using it to get themselves in a rythm early. It keeps the same defense on the feild and reduces their ability to blitz and change personel. I think we should come out in the hurry-up to start the game against Houston. It couls give our offense the spark they need. If MB still is gonna be our starter than give him a chance to make some plays and maybe even give him the liberty of calling a couple of plays on the fly? It might just be crazy enough to work?!!!

Re: Why dont we use he no-huddle?

The only true advantage to a no huddle offense is that it saves time on the clock, obviously, and doesn't allow the defense to substitute.

If you have a QB that's good at calling audibles at the line of scrimage and taking advantages of mis-matches, then it's a good thing.

Re: Why dont we use he no-huddle?

because we use a 700 page playbook and it takes Saunders way to long to flip through all those screen passes and off tackle runs. Duh!

Do you think Gibbs ever takes over playcalling duties again?

Honestly, I think it's possible. I don't believe he's going to stand down and watch the offense run this way. No, he won't make Al step aside entirely, but I can see him getting more involved.

Also, I think he's going to start JC after the Houston game.

Re: Why dont we use he no-huddle?

Let's just say, it wouldn't all together shock me.

If we get a repeat offensive performance like we have the past two weeks, get into a nail biter with the Texans at home....yeah, you betcha we could very well lose this game.

I mean this is a team that had the Eagles on the ropes for a half of football just two weeks ago and unraveled toward the end.

I disagree. Brunell will light up Houston... I'm even starting Brunell this week for fantasy (gasp). Brunell will be protected this week... I promise.

Re: Why dont we use he no-huddle?

Like I said, I will be more than happy to eat some Crow. I hope Brunell has plenty left in the tank, just for the record. I'm not rooting against him.

But feelings are, if he has a good game will it drag out the inevitable.

I think that could backfire, and the offense would just have faster 3 and outs. If there's anything we don't need, its for the defense to go from being on the field 80% of the time to 99% of the time.

Re: Why dont we use he no-huddle?

its probably just getting comfortable with the offense, first. once( hopefully) it starts clicking, maybe then

Re: Why dont we use he no-huddle?

Because the other team seems to know more about our offense than we do. We'd only be hurting ourselves.

{sort of kidding...sort of}

after houston we play jacksonville, that d is scary. Did u watch their 1st 2 games? the secondary isn't stellar, but the front 7 is big, mean & fast.
If Gibbs were to start JC, this would be the week. After reading jason la confora's skins insider today in WP, I believe Gibbs will stick w/Brunell until he looks HORRIBLE. Damn, now I'm essentially saying that if mb looks bad next week, we'll see JC against J'ville!
Seriously though,I had a hunch that mb might get benched, but if what they say about JC's lack of command w/the plays (<MB) is true, we're stuck w/ the southpaw.
