Back in the day, the Buffalo Bills no huddle offense would paralyze defenses. They ran this offense unlike any other team in the NFL. This was a big reason why they went to 4 straight Super Bowls in 1990, 1991, 1992, and 1993. They could exploit weaknesses in defenses simply because the defenses didn't and couldn't get the correct personnel on the field to challenge what Buffalo was doing on offense due to their lining up quickly after a play had just ended. I remember it was fun to watch.

More tempo is absolutely necessary for success and frankly I don't know what to make of the (total) lack of it we've witnessed so far. I guess I assumed it had more to do w/ coaching than QB because McNabb seemed only marginally better at getting the guys to the LOS than Rex. Beck isn't worth discussing here.

I mean for all the fun poked at Rex for being tubby it's not like he's so fat/winded as to be "catching his breath" between plays? Again it was just my assumption that Mike/Kyle haven't demanded fast-beat offense/2 minute drill, etc

Stating the obvious -- RG3 definitely wants to come to us. The Colts fanbase mostly doesn't want him there, and he'd have a ton of pressure to succeed for the rest of his career if he went there. They're used to Peyton and expect success. SuperBowl would be the only true success, and losing in the playoffs would be a disappointment. Hard to be excited about negativity with high expectations. Conversely, the Redskins traded their franchise for him. Fans already love him here and hope to have him save the franchise. Most of us don't expect immediate success, and playoffs would be an accomplishment in the next 2 years. We do expect Superbowl wins - but probably in starting 3-5 years.

ALSO, the rookie payscale means both are paid about the same minus $200-300k per year. He could make MUCH MUCH more in endorsements here vs. Indianapolis. Here, he could immediately make millions just by showing up -- he already has 60k twitter fans, and hasn't even been drafted by a team. His socks would be worth more in DC than Indianapolis.
Good stuff here!

I would enjoy seeing a no huddle run extensively for the skins, however the MEGAMINDS feel the need to micromanage the offense during games. I heard Kyle on the radio say that Rex didn't get the entire play and who to throw the ball to in the Vikings game at the end of the half (during what should have been a 2 minute drill) as a reason for a wasted opportunity? How much information does a pro qb need?
