Why did we abandon no huddle?

Offense was rolling against the #1 D when they were going no huddle. Why did we stop?

On the flip side, our D payed the best 56 minutes all year.

Even at 2-4 we are the best team in the division. We will start rattling off some wins here, we are much closer than our record says.

Good question ...the no huddle seems to work when employed. Manning seems to do pretty good with it.

I say we stay huddled longer.

Or, just stay in the huddle. Don't even come out.

That TD drive at the start of the 3rd quarter was briliant. No huddle most of the way baby and Detroit didn't see the ball.

Re: Why did we abandon no huddle?

Its frustrating and its not just the no huddle.

It seems like when something looks like its working well, we decide to try something else that fails and we lose all momentum.

The play calling in the 2nd half was predictable.

A feature of almost every game so far this season. Something is up; fear, belief, what?
But every game in the 2nd half has this inevitability about it. Durge on offense, big play give ups on defense once every 3 plays, and the Who Dats praying for some devine play to helps us win it by the 60th minute.

Re: Why did we abandon no huddle?

The disappointing thing is, when we used to struggle in the first half, we were absolute kings at making adjustments and coming out to the 2nd half like a new team

Everything about this team is broken
Offense, defense and coaching

Will a Sean Payton led team ever win a road game? I wouldn't put my money on it from how we've played.

Because Sean Payton has an inferiority complex to Drew Brees.
He feels he must have control and display control.
