Good morning. Bucky Brooks of NFL.com says to expect the San Diego Chargers under new offensive coordinator Frank Reich to run more no-huddle offense, similar to when the former NFL quarterback served as quarterbacks coach for Peyton Manning while with the Indianapolis Colts.
You can also go back and trace the origins of Reich’s experience with the no-huddle to his days running the K-Gun offense as Jim Kelly’s backup in Buffalo.
“I think they’re going to give Philip Rivers more leeway than he’s ever had,” Brooks explained. “I think you’re going to see them play at a pace that we haven’t seen them play at, and I think they’re ramping up and they’ll be far more exciting than we’re used to seeing the Chargers in terms of passing.”
Brooks attended San Diego’s practice open to reporters this week, and was a teammate with Reich at Buffalo.
