Until Buck Pierce returns......
I have a theory. I understand that Hurry-up Offense is built to keep the defense off balance. But when you have a back up QB and you are 2 & out often (because of the inexperienced Backup QB), Doesn't that put a lot of pressure on the defense?
Let me do some Math.
Winnipeg = Five 2 & outs... Hurry Up Offense... (Officials rush to get ball spotted as O-Line waits. Ball snapped 15 seconds left on 20 second clock. Total time used up.... maybe 1 1/2 minutes. (x 5.... 7 1/2 minutes of defensive rest)
Opponants = Five 2 & outs Regular Offense... Receivers walk back to huddle, Referee blows time in when they get back to huddle, Ball snapped with 5 seconds LEFT on 20 second clock.... Total time used up probably close to 2 1/2 minutes (x 5..... 12 1/2 minutes of rest.)
Totally unscientific. Next game, I'll bring a stop watch to test my theory. :lol: :lol:
Defense is always reacting to what Offense does. Defensive players will tire before Offensive players.
So my Big question is.... Is the Hurry Up offense, wearing out the Bomber Defense?
