Prediction: Bills will go no huddle on Sunday

I don’t think McCarron would make the team that much better if at all. It would just help protect the future of the Bills and Josh Allen. Look at Aaron Rodgers. He sat for two years and his era is well documented. Again look at Aaron Rodgers. All it took was one large man falling on his knee and he is now guestionable and limited. If you are willing to risk the future like that with a kid behind a horrible line so be it. He is going to take a beating this year. Beatings have little educational value IMO.

 

 Can’t make decisions based on potential for injury.  At least as it applies in this case.

We’ll agree to disagree then.

And don’t forget that McCarron got injured in preseason.

I’d like to see some RPO mixed in.

If I'm not mistaken we saw a fair number of RPOs with Nate. But he seemed to choose the wrong option every time.

I think seeing the lineman physically man handled over and over again is the indicator that they are not physically strong. That is a given.  Maybe they are not idiots though.  What makes you think playing "vanilla" would allow a bunch of idiots to gel better than no-huddle? 

 

Because if you start with the simple things and can do them together, it gives you a base and it's easier to move onto slightly harder things? I'm not trying to be an ass to you but I think it's that simple. Give them a chance to get together and grow doing the A-B-Cs before D-E-F.

 

My worry about the no huddle itself is very situationally specific as I said...if we're at the line early like Shaw wants, and running clock as I want  I think they probably false start, twice. Or maybe don't hear the playcall/count from Josh at the line (we're at home, sure, should be ok.)  But heck I think lining up as normal, and committing to running the ball, plays away from our weaknesses and into our lone proven offensive strength, Lesean.

Actually, Nate Hackett went super-fast with EJ Manuel in his first start. And then never again. I do think there's something to be said for it with young QBs - learn a few options off a few basic plays, and then make the defense play straight up. Very often time is on the offense's side in the NFL, but with newbies at the QB position, it seems to me time benefits the defense.
