I agree; to a point. Let's be clear that the plan is not to go to a no-huddle offense all the time, but only in certain situations. Letting Ben call virtually every play at the line (like Indy does with Manning) would be a drastic overhaul. Our no-huddle will be more of an addition; a variation or today's offense.
In the NFL, you must constantly be updating your playbook, adding new wrinkles to keep defenses off balance. If you sit tight where you are, the rest of the league catches up to you pretty quickly - basically overnight.
I look for the no-huddle to pop out one, maybe two series per game this year. Depending on how well it does, you may see it more, maybe less.
