No-huddle is the new black.
Poor metaphors aside, the proliferation of no-huddle offenses helped set records through the first two weeks of the NFL season.
Fisher, who coached some very successful run-first Tennessee Titans teams, pointed to the scoreboard (the Rams trailed 21-0) as the impetus behind the attack. He cautioned that running no-huddle could give the ball back to the opposing offense quicker and added that high passing stats don't always equal wins.
"You look at Sam (Bradford's) 300-yard plus passing games over his career, they've won two," he said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "We have the ability to do it, and there's a time to do it and a time not to do it."
Fisher's team also is chock-full of offensive players who ran no-huddle (hurry-up or otherwise) in college.
"I obviously did it a lot in college," Bradford said.
"I think it's good for us," receiver Austin Pettis added. "We were able to do a little bit more offensively and throw defenses off so they can't necessarily play to our tendencies and that kind of thing."
Fisher might pump the brakes, but given the players they've cobbled together, we have a hard time believing the Rams' offense won't be pressing the gas pedal in future games.
