    ."

    Article from October 2012 on the No huddle offense O'Brien implemented at Penn State. Not much in the form of X's and O's but just thought I'd post anyway.

    Good marketing though...

    They weren't talking type, it was a reference to TB being known as studious and experienced in making lots of at the line adjustments.

    Old Pine Box Tommy ran his form of the "Nascar" at Texas Tech. I know it's just another way of saying "hurry up" but the word still makes me cringe.

    It's more than just another way of saying "hurry up"

    It's one less syllable so that makes it quicker to say. It's even more hurry up than the hurry up. See, there's no limit to the number of ways OB is going to speed up the Texans offense.

    Lol, makes sense Herv. At least it can't be any worse than the "Sugar Huddle".

    /\ Ok, that made me laugh. Good timing.

    NASCAR offense, huh? Doesn't matter if it's NASCAR, no huddle, hurry up, sugar huddle, or dink n dunk... as long as it gets down the field resulting in TD's and wins.

    Maybe a "No honey, sugar can't huddle with dink'n NASCAR" offense.

    O'Brien is an offensive genius. Don't be surprised if he is able to further refine this down to one syllable, or even *gasp!* a single letter. Yeah, I know it sounds preposterous, but nobody ever believed that a man would land on the sun, until the North Koreans proved them wrong.

    The speed or tempo of the no huddle offense has never been as appealing to me as the ability to keep the defense from subbing players.

    Without being able to adjust their personnel, you have the ability on offense to mercilessly attack the weakness in that personnel group, whatever it may be.

    Texans’ Fitzpatrick, Savage hint at complexity of O’Brien’s offense
    So let's see, which position group's responsibilities and complexities have increased: QB, WR/TE, RB, T, G, C. :truck:

    We'll be seeing guys getting cut because of difficulty assimilating the offense, or doing so at game speed who otherwise might be successful in the NFL. Processing & decision-making at a premium, now.

    And AJ is there for none of this, he is going to be so behind when he comes back. Why in the hell is he doing this anyways it makes no sense. He is only hurting the team with this childish BS.

    A whole lot less worried about AJ "catching up" vs. worrying about the other young WR picking the system up first.

    The "childish BS" is honestly one of the only ways players can show their displeasure. We've been spoiled in Houston by a severe drought of holdouts. With most other teams, a guy missing OTAs is a *yawn* inducing affair.

    Well said, totally agree with your comments here.
    One of the reasons we've always liked and respected AJ so much beyond his abilities was that he was the unselfish super star who was an anti-diva, the non prima donna among the selfish, self centered WRs in the NFL. His behavior lately is rapidly depleting all of that good will that he's established with the fan base over the years. I know it is with me.
