Arians Looking to Run No Huddle in Arizona

on

The return to health of quarterback Carson Palmer should open up the Cardinals’ playbook in 2015, and coach Bruce Arians may not stop there.The Cardinals practiced their no-huddle offense in Monday’s organized team activity and Arians said it could become a usable wrinkle at times during the season. Many of the top skill players are returning for their second or third years within the offense, and the comfort level allows for more diversity in the play-calling.“We can play real fast right now,” Arians said. “I like the tempo of it. It’s gone really well the whole timewe’ve been out here, but this is the first time we’ve actually practiced it against the defense.”While the offensive line is undergoing an overhaul, the top of the skill player depth chart is littered with experience. Palmer may not turn into Peyton Manning-light and call plays without huddling on a regular basis, but having the option can be fruitful in certain situations.
