We have reason to believe Philip Rivers will be running Peyton Manning's old Colts offense in 2014.
On Friday's edition of the "Around The League Podcast," NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks revealed that Rivers is running the same heavy no-huddle scheme that the Colts used when new Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich was Manning's position coach in Indianapolis.
"I think they're going to give Phillip 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."
That faster pace should lead to more plays and scoring opportunities while limiting defensive substitutions, in similar fashion to offenses run by the Broncos, Patriots and Eagles.
If successful, this could benefit the entire Charger offense.
