    Me too, but this current team is incapable of doing that. I don't care what they do on offense, as long as they put points on the board. Yes, a no huddle will put the D on the field more, but constant 3 and outs does too, without the benefit of scoring points.

    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

    with the state of the current O line the no huddle probably is the best way to go.

    You cannot eat the clock when you cannot run the ball.

    Our best chance at doing anything this year is all on Romo. We don't have the OL or RB's (health) to rely on a running game.

    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.

    I agree, but we don't do a lot of 3 and outs. We force the most in the NFL I recently read.

    If the No Huddle produced points for us, I'd be all over it. It hasn't, so I prefer to keep the one unit playing great, the Defense, fresher.

    We haven't ran that much No Huddle though. Only at times during the game to conserve time. I'd like to see us run it at times even when it's not "needed".


    Plus, the "No Huddle" offense doesn't necessarily use less time than the normal offense. Only difference is we aren't huddling so that we force the opposing defense to not sub.

    No Huddle Offense =/= Hurry Up Offense

    Exactly. There's nothing preventing you from running the play clock down to 1 every down in a no huddle offense. Amazing that people can't figure that out.

    Then again, having the ridiculously undisciplined Dallas offensive line (and Witten) sitting at the line of scrimmage for 20 seconds should pretty much guarantee at least 15 false starts a game.
