Default Good use of the "no huddle?"

two bright spots stood out to me from yesterday's game in arizona.

1. the beautiful td pass to holmes
2. the drive in the 4th quarter for a td

it seems to me that the 4th qt drive was the first we saw the no huddle offense. they moved the ball very effectively and you could see the defense was sucking air.

my question while watching it was : "why didn't we go to the no huddle a little sooner?"

what do you think?

It wouldn't have worked as easy as it did in the fourth quarter the cardinals was playing deep to protctect the deep ball they did not have as many deffenders up front.

I was watching the game with my friend who's a big 'hawks fan in preparation of the rematch next week, and we were saying the same thing. Steelers should've gone to no-huddle sooner. It kept an inexperienced defense off balance and surely if there were more people back defending the pass that'd have made it harder for Roethlisberger not easier? I wish they'd have let him lead a couple more no huddle drives, I think it could've helped.

Yup,...I like to see more "no huddle" plays, it would definitely confuse the D & probably they start wasting TOs!!! Just like Favre been doin' for years....

I agree. The Steelers have been working on the no-huddle and clearly it worked well yesterday, why not use it more?

In fairness, the Cards were in a prevent D but it didn't prevent the Steelers from scoring or moving the ball quickly.

No huddle is another tactic. If you want to use it earlier in a game, you just have to adjust the plays that are called.

...as long as the players remember the No Huddle package called...or it would be a disaster running it after all! Again, I second the motion....!!!

Good point. I had a bunch of people over, and we were talking about it as early as the start of the third quarter. The offense was sputtering, and isn't that exactly the perfect time to run the no huddle? Shake things up a bit? Regardless about other threads stating that the Steelers don't trust Ben (which is dead wrong by the way), the Steelers talked up one side and down the other about using the no huddle to generate a spark.

I agree and even with like 20 seconds Ben made a good effort that could have led us down the field. And Holmes come on is no suprise his speed is very good and can beat a slow corner anyday.

I hear everyone talking about how well the no huddle worked on the last TD drive but you gotta realize that most of us could have moved the ball against the D that Arizona was playing on that drive. They were in prevent the whole time they were not covering anything underneath they were only worried about the deep ball. IMO they should have been able to move downfield faster than they did. Another thing how the hell do you kick the onside kick right to the guy on the field with the best hands, that was a pour effort if you ask me.
