The success in the second part of last year was largely because of increased use of the no huddle which kept defenses off balance. I do expect we will see more of it.

With only Antonio Brown and Heath Miller as targets who are well versed in this offense, if they want to run more no huddle, the deciding factor for who gets the most playing time with them out there may be more between the ears than physical, since you have to know what you are doing in order to run the no huddle effectively. You can't be thinking out there...you have to know for sure what you are doing in order to be effective.

Haley's coming around. I'd love to see him and Ben take a big step forward from the second half of last season. If we finally get him putting Ben consistently in position to be successful, this offense can be really good. I'm really hopeful with Munchak solidifying the guys up front and improving from the performance we got out of that unit.
It just feels like we should be able to do things offensively that no one else can really do with #7 back there. Does it all finally start to click? I hope so.
