    Why isn't there a no-huddle defense?

    Obviously teams across the league, including the Steelers, struggle mightily to defend the no-huddle. Why is there not an answer for this?

    If the problem is that you can't substitute out your big tired guys, then use smaller guys with more endurance. Create a no-huddle defense. If the offensive players can run around and battle it out and keep playing, then the defensive players should be able to as well.

    ADAPT!

    If you go small, then the opponent will just cram the ball down your throats.

    If you go big, then the opponent will start the no-huddle to keep the tired fatties on the field.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    And if everyone tries to play no huddle you will have some making excuses for the defense that the offense isn't giving them time to rest.

    That said, I hope we see much more of our no huddle because our WRs are extremely difficult to match up with. Put Dwyer in the backfield and we have sa real run/catch threat until Mendy comes back.

    It didn't seem like Peyton and the Broncos were hiding the fact that they were coming out with the no-huddle. I would have taken my chances.

    Maybe you give up a couple more yards per run, but you also have a better chance of putting pressure on and getting sacks when they do throw.

    Now that I think about it, the answer is already out there. The 4-3 Defense with DLinemen who can play the run well enough and also get pressure regardless of blitz calls.

    Right! Peyton has never burned a 4-3 defense with the no-huddle!

    Heck, neither has Ben!

    4-3 is the cure all for all defensive woes!!!

    You don't think players like JPP and Jay Ratliff would fare better against a no huddle than a guy like Hampton or Ziggy would? Ignore that it's called the 4-3 and think about the players it uses.

    Jay Ratliff is a 3-4 NT...you can put the players in any scheme and call it what you want...
