Rams | No-huddle offense product of game flow
Tue, 17 Sep 2013 09:38:15 -0700

The St. Louis Rams went into a no-huddle offense in the second half of their Week 2 loss to the Atlanta Falcons when they were trailing 24-3. "No, absolutely not," Bradford said, chuckling. "I thought it was a great idea, just change it up. Obviously, we were struggling in what we were trying to do at that point, so put them on their heels a little bit. Got us going. It was nice to see us perform that way." The Rams responded with three touchdowns in just over 16 minutes.

However, despite the success in the no-huddle last week and the preference of the players to run it, head coach Jeff Fisher isn't ready to change his offense into a high-flying, fast-paced attack just yet. Fisher's teams with the Tennessee Titans were all run-oriented squads, and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer has had his most success with ground-and-pound styles. "You look at Sam's 300-yard plus passing games over his career, they've won two," Fisher said. "We have the ability to do it, and there's a time to do it and a time not to do it. If you put a long drive together and you've got the defense tired, and you go back on the field and you want to continue to fatigue the defense, do it."

We'll probably see a combination of a standard offensive attack and a no-huddle approach from St. Louis throughout the year, especially since most of the Rams' skill players like running quickly and are familiar with spread offenses from their collegiate days.
