Kolb had success on Sunday orchestrating the offense down the field with the no-huddle, and used it pretty well in the preseason as well.
But as Kolb told Fox Sports Arizona, the no-huddle only works well when you are advancing down the field.
"The downside is you don't give your defense a rest if you are to go three-and-out. You're out there for 40 seconds and the defense is right back on the field," Kolb said. "You have to be careful with it, especially with a good defense like we have."
Coach Ken Whisenhunt also approves of the no-huddle, but only to a certain degree. As he points out, teams adapt to one-trick ponies, and the best offense is the one that keeps a defense on its toes.
"If you do only one thing, teams are going to scheme to stop it," he said. "You have to be able to stay in a conventional offense and try to run the football."
Kolb has used the no-huddle offense since high school and is ready to use it when the coaches say so. The Cardinals plan to use the no-huddle offense with both of their quarterbacks when the timing is right.
