I assume the answer is because it would take a QB both as physically and, more importantly, mentally gifted as Manning? And no quarterback, possibly ever, fits that criteria?
All of the elite NFL QB's use the no-huddle (Manning, Brady, Rodgers, Brees). Now that the Steelers have a new OC, the Roethlisberger will be using a lot more no-huddle.

The full-time Manning no-huddle worked because Manning is the most prepared QB in the history of the NFL, with probably the best ball placement.

Remember, the no-huddle limits the Offense as well (limited communication, limited personnel, strenuous pace).
