Question for the football knowledgable: Armando wrote the following "The Patriots no-huddle is interesting in that they run players on and off the field before they snap the ball. Traditional no-huddle attacks try to catch you in one personnel grouping they think they have an advantage in and keep that group on the field to wear you out while pressing that singular advantage. The Patriots are different. The mix and match group as they run the no-huddle. When they get into a rhythm, it's a stunning thing to see because it happens fast, it's precise, and obviously involves a good amount of forethought." Now I don't normally read Armando, and indeed, I am starting with the question of whether he is right because I don't trust him. But, I think he is, and if so, that is an interesting strategy and I wonder if other teams can pull it off without a Brady at QB. (Props to Armando for a rare article that isn't total fluff)
