Cards having success with no-huddle offense
He completed 25 of 39 passes and looked sharp running the no-huddle offense in the first half.
The Cardinals went back to the no-huddle a time or two in the second half, which was a surprise given their earlier success.
In their only touchdown drive, Kolb completed all six pass attempts out of the no-huddle offense.
It's a package the Cardinals will have to consider using more of, especially when the offense is stagnated.
They did that when Kurt Warner was the starting quarterback, and Kolb seems to have similar fondness for going no-huddle and spreading receivers across the field.
But, cautioned receiver Larry Fitzgerald, the no-huddle was effective partly because it is used as a change of pace.
The Cardinals can't rely upon it too much. "We have to be able to execute our base offense," he said. "We don't want to have to rely on that. We can use it as a change of pace but we have to be able to execute our basic offense."
In both losses, the Cardinals have had the ball late in games with a chance to tie or win. They committed turnovers each time.
Against Washington, Chansi Stuckey fumbled after a 12-yard reception. Against Seattle, Kolb had a pass intercepted.
"It's not like we're getting blown out by 30 or 40 points," Fitzgerald said. "We're losing by close margins.
"We're going to be critical of ourselves. We're going to push ourselves. If we make mistakes, we're going to be called out about that, held accountable for that. That's part of being a man and being professional."
