No plans to halt no huddle

With time of possession a problem for Buffalo’s offense the question was posed to Dick Jauron if he is considering scrapping the no huddle approach, which has been a staple on offense this season.

While Jauron admitted that it’s been discussed, they won’t change the approach.

“No, and we’ve discussed that, too, a lot,” said Jauron. “I don’t think the two are related. I don’t believe that the two are related, never have. The fact that you huddle or don’t huddle has nothing to do with when you snap the ball, how much you use on the clock, it doesn’t have anything to do with it. It really doesn’t have anything to do with what you call or how you call them. It has to do with communicating and where you communicate. It’s a little easier in the huddle than it is on the ball. Other than that, there’s not a lot of difference.”

Offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt is also committed to the no huddle.

“No, I would not want to do that,” said Van Pelt when asked if he’d be interested in scrapping it. “I love the no-huddle. Yes. It’s a slower version but it’s faster than Indy’s.”
