Does this team have this style of play in their arsenal outside of a two-minute drill? I never see us picking up the tempo and keeping teams off balance defensively and we always seem to barely get our plays off.

Watching the Bengals game right now and they were making the Cardinals defense tire with the hurry up. The Eagles have had lots of success doing this, as have the Saints and Colts.

Is Shula just incompetent in this regard? With a quarterback like Cam and some good run blockers on the interior of our offensive line I think this would greatly benefit our offense this season. Do we not have the personnel to pull it off or is our coaching staff just too reserved?

Instead of going up tempo/ hurry up, Shula rather just run the wildcat in an attempt to catch the defense off guard

That kind of style would also be good in taking some of the wear and tear off of Newton by spreading the field and making things faster, reducing his times as a bullseye in the pocket.

 

I do believe that Pittsburgh is also going to a lot of HUNH with Rapelisberger.  We already know that Denver and NE do it.

We are capable of it, but we only do it at the end of the game. Remember all the 4th qtr comebacks last year.  Our staff doesnt want a fast game, they always want a ball control methodical offense. We will never run like cincy, indy, aints, or  eagles without a new OC.

He runs a ball control O. He wants to play to the D and control the clock. That is what Shula is.....and it worked last year. 12-4.


We can always bring Chud back if people miss the ESPN highlights

But, to answer your question, I think the HUNH is utterly alien to the coaching staff as currently rostered.

 

I think they'd rather have mumps and measles at the same time than to consider such a move.

From some of tweets I was reading in training camp our offense seemed to struggle with the hurry up. I just believe it fits Cams skillset pretty well and could mask some of our deficiencies offensively this season.

It just feels like when we use the entire play clock to get the snap off the defense is always well dialed in and rested just as we are. On second or third and shorts I'd love to see us hurry to the line once in a while and sneak Cam behind Kalil and Amini to keep them off balance. When we huddle up on third and inches I just think we are more apt to get stopped but we have been good in that regard recently.

I just think it's a nice wrinkle our offense would benefit from if we could execute it a handful of times a game.

I don't miss Chud I just believe adding some hurry up to our offense would benefit our offense. We seem to either go three and out or drive the field for a touchdown.. I think Cam and the rest of the offense need that momentum to sustain drives and a bit of hurry up play would go a long way to give us some momentum early in a series.

Whats wrong with running a hurry up offense to pile up points and the go ball control to close out games? If the score gets tight late, open up the throttle again. Sheesh. And with our defense it would be pretty effective...
