New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride seems to be ready for the one things I’ve been clamoring for a long time. In the upcoming Giants game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Gilbride is ready to try the no-huddle offense to provide a spark for the offense.
In the last two minutes of the first half and the game, the Giants have been more than exceptional in those situations. We have seen teams like the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos go to the no-huddle to prevent defensive substitutions and to keep the defense a little tired.
It takes a smart quarterback and for the offense to be on the same page in order to make it work. The Giants have what it takes in order to go with a no-huddle offense throughout a game. Manning constantly makes adjustments at the line of scrimmage, showing his ability to read coverages pre-snap and during the play.
Not many teams can say they can go with a no-huddle offense and succeed. The Baltimore Ravens have stated they will go with the no-huddle offense as well. I am not even sure if the Ravens still are going with that offense, but QB Joe Flacco and the offense have not been too successful.
Take advantage of your quarterback’s greatest asset. Calling a series of plays or adjusting from play to play at the line of scrimmage is something Giants QB Eli Manning can handle. It’ll help their pass rush when they go up against tired pass rushers.
The Giants can be a real force going to a no-huddle offense throughout a game. They have the offensive personnel. Most importantly, they have the quarterback.
