Prediction: Bills will go no huddle on Sunday

Recommended Posts

With a rookie QB in his first start under the glare of the national spotlight?    With an uber by-the-book defensive-minded head coach?    With a swiss cheese OL and God awful WR group? 

 

LOL!   Comedy gold...

If we punt as soon as we receive the ball we probably won't need to huddle

 

you can't keep sending the D back on the field in 4 minutes real time after no-huddle 3 and outs

 

 

 

one year during this dismal dismal 20 years they seemed to do this 6 times a game to the D

I see positives but one big negative to it.

 

Positives: Basically all the points you made in your first post

Negative: There is a chance the offence will break the record in terms of lowest time of possession ever

I dont mind going to this after we get a first down. Could allow for a better rhythm and keep things simpler for JA

My hot take on why few teams run no-huddle as a game-long strategy?

 

The teams don't have enough players with the requisite football IQ to do it.  

 

Hell, we can't even get the players on the team to execute the plays they've been studying for months.

elite QBs for 20 years get to the line with 20 seconds on the shotclock and completely read the D and call out audibles or the best choice of 3 plays they have set up for the situation

Here me out this is why. 

 

1.  It gives Josh a little help reading defense presnap with the OC in his ear to help (think they shut it off with 10 seconds to go right). 

 

2.  Will slow down passrush. The No huddle always does that because it is harder for rotation. 

 

3.  To clarify I am not talking throw it all over the yard but more of a Huddle at the line like College does (that is where the game is going IMO). 

 

Finally the first play from him I would love to see is 4 wide. Under center. Play action to Shady (they will likey be thinking run to protect the rookie), all WRs run gos. Hits the top of his drop and lets it fly. (Ala the Carolina game). 

I fully expect him to throw a bomb on the first play, whether it's completed or not, just to put the defense on notice.

Yeah, let’s complete the EJ development of Josh Allen!

 

its funny, I didn’t want Allen but I thought at least the Bills aren’t going to be stupid and rush him on the field.  He will get to learn from a vet and work on getting more consistent habits in practice.  Yet, here we are again.

We went hurry up offense a lot. It didn't do any good. It comes down to execution, and if you can't execute it doesn't matter how fast or slow you go.

So faster three and outs to make sure Bojorquez can get his exercise?  In all sincerity, it's not a bad plan to put in for the reasons stated in the OP.

Steve Tasker was saying this exact thing yesterday on One Bills Live.  Give him a limited number of plays.  Keep the D on the field while not letting them do anything too exotic in terms of blitzing (at least that's what I remember).  

 

Did Tasker miss last year's game?  I suspect Coach Lynn to blitz the pants off of Josh. Last year he watched  Nasty Nate's pre season tape and determined he was not good under pressure.  What do you think the Cincinnati game tape will tell him about Josh?

 

It's gonna be up to Daboll to dial something up that takes advantage of the that.  Screens or roll outs or something.  Extra tight ends.  RBs doing pass pro.  This 4 or 5 wide no tight end nonsense will be a recipe for disaster IMHO.

I do understand that. But not talking tempo here they play same speed as being in the huddle. Just trying to figure a way to help the rookie with an extra set of eyes

 

And that may be a good approach...and coached properly, it might very well be a terrific way to accomplish that. However, my fear would be that a young man running the no huddle in his first NFL game, might feel as though it's more of a 2-minute Offense, like the K-Gun. I'm not suggesting that's your point, but just that the unintended consequence *might* be Allen's perception of how the no huddle is operating.

 

All of that said, however Daboll and his crew design the Offense for Sunday it needs to adequately account for Allen's strengths and weaknesses, including his status as a Rookie and what they can do to best mitigate that effect. I will be very interested to see how Daboll and the coaches use Allen's skill set and limitations to maximize Offensive output and limit self-inflicted damage.

Also, the way I would use no huddle is sporadically, throughout the course of the game.  Switch up the tempo occasionally.  I never understood why teams feel they have to go no huddle all game.

Actually it is 15 seconds,  you are going to have to go real fast if you want any help form the OC, again too much pressure for a rookie QBs first start. Making a rookie go fast is the last thing you want him to do.

they couldn't even figure out what play to call for T'Rod during 2 minute drills down two scores without wasting precious seconds off the clock

You make great points..but the problem with that is our personnel and lack of discipline. No huddle requires great communication and football intelligence.our offensive line has struggled to even get plays off without false starts and communicating post and pre snap . I can already foresee ducasse or whoever it is on the line blowing assignments.

More than worrying about Allen I'd go with whatever helps the O line.  I think Allen if given any time will be competent if not even make some exceptional plays  The line seems to either get overwhelmed physically or make costly mental errors that kills drives

Sean McVeigh figured this out with Goff.  The radio to the QB cuts off with 15 seconds left on the play clock.  So what McVeigh did was get the Rams up to the line of scrimmage with more than 20 seconds on the clock.  That does two things

 

First, it cuts of substitutions by the defense.

 

Second, it gives the OC time to look at the basic defensive alignment and tell the qb what to look for, maybe to change the play.  It helps a young qb who may not be seeing everything yet.  Essentially, it allows a coach on the field.  

 

Look for it Sunday.
