Prediction: Bills will go no huddle on Sunday

Recommended Posts

Radio about to cut off:

 

Dabol: "Josh they are rushing if you hold it you will get smashed..... kill, kill...... run Immediate Intentional Grounding Drill to the left."

I hope you’re right Shaw. Watching the Rams operate on offense is a sight to see.

 

I hope Daboll is forward thinking enough to attempt this.

 

And definitely not like the Trent Edwards “no huddle” debacle of years past.

He still better sit at the line and use every second of clock if this is the case. We can barely afford to be bad slowly, we can't afford to be bad quickly.

 

What we should do regardless of how/when we line up is RUN THE BALL.

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.  

 

It's a good idea, but I'm not sure Daboll and McDermott have this much savvy.

Also, Josh Allen said something in one of this week's interviews about some of their play calls being quite lengthy (it's supposed to be an advantage of P-E to have short calls) so not sure it would be helpful if it hinders communication of the play

I expect to see them do with Josh what the Jets did with Darnold.

As an aside, and as has been discussed in the past regarding Patriots' cheating allegations...

 

Who monitors the electronic equipment used by these teams? I'm going to suggest no one.

 

Who verifies before and after games that the equipment is functioning as it is supposed to has not been tampered with?


I'm going to suggest no one.

 

If those 2 premises are correct, why in the world aren't we manipulating the headsets so that we can talk to the QB nonstop, whenever we want to?

 

Further, why isn't every team in the NFL?

 

I'm sure the smart organizations are.

While I Understand the idea behind it , the Oline needs time to gel before they should be attempting to run a no huddle in my humble opinion.

 

 crawl before you walk kinda thing...

Ya there are 2 extreme examples to the no huddle.

 

1. The rams with a brilliant coach, QB, and weapons who run it to perfection

2.  The Eagles a few years ago with Chip Kelly who couldn't move the chains and made their defence stay on the field the whole game.

 

I think the Bills would obviously fall under category number 2 as they don't nearly have the coaching and players the Rams do.

 

I wouldn't mind them sprinkling it in, but definitely don't want to see it as there base offence.

You mean the no huddle in which we would snap the ball with about 3 seconds left on the play clock?

No huddle doesn't help a below average Oline perform better and the TE debacle is a great example IMO.

The “A Gun”

 

Edit: Wasn’t it revealed that the K-Gun was actually named after Keith McKeller...not Kelly?

It only helps if we convert first downs.  If we can move the chains, it helps out our Offensive Line tremendously.

Is this coaching staff. From the HC down to the o-line coach progressive enough 

in their coaching knowledge techniques, and ability too install this?  Do they have an offensive

unit that is skilled enough to pull it off? I have doubts.

 

But the OP's post makes a lot of sense

You are correct.  Most think it was because the FO got upset with Kelly for forcing them to change the helmet color to red.

The helmet color was done for Ferguson who was color blind.

Bills tried this EJ Manuel's first year.  The outcome was terrible, no first downs.  Then, the D was gassed by the middle of the second quarter, no time to recover.  the O needs to eat up some time w first downs so the D doesn't have to face 80 plays, like last Sunday.

Hmm, I thought Kay Stephenson was the coach who changed the color and Ferguson was already gone.

There's a HUUUUUUGE difference between McVay and McDermott. I wont look for that. I'll look for the Bills to do the opposite, because McDermott is not a forward thinking individual like McVay.

Nope, it was due to Fergy:
