Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula indicated the offense could use less verbiage at times in the huddle because the team wants to take some of the burden off QB Cam Newton. "The more words you have in your play calling, the easier it is on everyone else because the quarterback basically is telling them what to do. Fewer words help the quarterbacks because he doesn't have to say as much. This offense can get very wordy. So we're trying to massage it so he doesn't have to call long plays all the time and put more of the burden on some of the other players. It will help not being in the huddle all that long," Shula said.
