Norv didn’t like it. He was our offensive genius that never wanted to run it. With a smart quarterback calling the shots, why wouldn’t you take advantage of that.

Philip Rivers looked masterful running the no huddle offense against the Philadelphia Eagles. My favorite part of the game on Sunday was when Rivers lined up the team, but kept letting that clock tick, tick, tick away. The Philly fans absolutely hated every second of it. They were anxious and wanted to see their fast pace offense on the field. Philip controlled the tempo of the game though.

Standing at the line, he was making his calls, reading the defense and picking those Eagles to pieces. When Philip found favorable matchups, he would line everyone up and just make his calls on offense from the line of scrimmage. He acted like Peyton Manning at the line. The no huddle will be a big part of our offense this year.
