The Tennessee Titans are looking for ways to jumpstart their offense. When they were pinned against their own one yard line they went to a no huddle and drove down the field and scored. That has some calling for the no-huddle to be a bigger part of their offense.
From The Tennessean:
Does that mean we’ll see more of the hurry-up, no-huddle approach this week against the Chargers and beyond as the Titans try to boost an offense that has sputtered so far?
“I think there’s a spot in the game where if a guy gets a feel — and Jake gets it — we stay with it,” coach Mike Munchak said. “Maybe that’s something we have to do more, and that’s the stuff as we go from week to week that we’ll decide upon.”
There are reasons for the Titans to go to the no-huddle offense.
“More than anything else, it makes the defense have to play at our speed,” quarterbacks coach Dave Ragone said. “That makes them play a little bit on their heels. We’re controlling the tempo.”
It also keeps the defense simple, which means easier for a young quarterback to read.
