No-huddle gives Seattle juice

Published on September 26, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Looking for a spark offensively, the Seattle Seahawks finally sped up the tempo.

The Seahawks switched to their two-minute offense and went no huddle to open the second half with good results, completing a 14-play, 72-yard drive that quarterback Tarvaris Jackson finished with an 11-yard plunge for a touchdown.

Jackson said the no-huddle helped give Seattle some rhythm offensively in the second half.

“We talked about it during the week that we thought that we were going to do that,” Jackson said. “And we said we were going to do that in the first half. We had some success with it, so we stayed with it.”

Receiver Sidney Rice said he would like to see the no-huddle become a regular part of Seattle’s offense on game day.

“I like the no huddle,” Rice said. “The more we do it, the more I like it. I feel like we have the extra edge, we can get up on the ball fast, our tempo just rises and I’m looking forward to doing that throughout the rest of the season. It doesn’t give the defense time to get set.”

Seattle’s 324 yards was the most they’ve had in a game this season, and the 38 percent third-down conversion percentage also was a season high.

“We’ll continue to utilize it when it’s going to benefit us,” Carroll said. “We were able to go in and out of it, which is cool. We’ll get better at it.”
