I realize the no huddle doesn't guarantee we score, it's just this year's team's best chance of putting points on the board, consistently. IMO
And even if we get those time consuming drives, with this team there will eventualy be a penalty or a sack that will stall the drive down the line, all of a sudden you took 6 minutes of the clock with nothing to show for it.
This team is just too inconsistent and undisciplined to constantly do that.
Last week was the perfect example, losing by 13, we get the ball with 10 minutes to go in the third quarter, we get to the Cle 20, then give up a sack and not one but two holdings in the next play. On 3th and twentysomething we had to call a pass just to get back to fg range.
After all of that, we took 6 minutes of the clock and only got a FG.
