Up-tempo offense catching on as quick path to NFL success - Bucky Brooks
When I broached the subject with several coaches, they told me that changing speeds creates more scoring opportunities and, by limiting the number of substitutions that can be made, forces defensive coordinators to abandon their exotic sub-packages. Opponents also tend to lean on more vanilla coverage and employ fewer blitzes, due to concerns about miscommunication and blown assignments. Revving up the pace allows offenses to control the game.

A few minutes with Javontee Herndon - Eric Williams
"I like what he’s doing," Graves said. "The game’s not too big for him. Some guys come from college and the game is too big for them. And I’m not complaining about college offenses, but a lot of college offense are spread offenses and they don’t teach the guys the fundamentals.

Kendall Reyes Focusing on Little Things in 2014 - Hayley Elwood
"It’s good but it goes by so quick so you can’t even dwell on it.  You’ve got to know what you did well and take down what you did bad and move on to the next one."

Keys to the Game: Chargers at Seahawks - Ricky Henne
The Bolts couldn’t ask for a better preseason test than to travel to the vaunted "12th Man" at CenturyLink Field in the Seattle Seahawks first home game since capturing the Super Bowl.  The team knows it is in for a challenge, but as McCoy explained, the experience should prove valuable come the regular season, starting with the Monday night opener in Arizona.
