I have a question about how plays are relayed from the OC to the offense and the differences between no huddle and conventional styles. As I understand it, Al calls the play, it gets relayed to Devin by someone on the sideline with a headset via hand signals. Devin then reads the play off of his arm band to the rest of the team, they break the huddle and line up. Correct?
How much different is no huddle mode? Would the entire offense have to memorize the plays and hand signals so that everyone just gets the call directly from the sideline? Is this something that's feasible to implement mid season? Brian has talked at length about the advantages no huddle gives to the QB in terms of time to change the play after seeing the defense (or for the OC to call in another play). What got me thinking is with the talk of a new center (and the young interior line in general), would getting to the line more quickly and seeing defensive alignment also help the center make the blocking assignment calls and for the OL to ID their targets?
