If you are pressed for time during prayer, would it be OK to say only the blessings when you come to the Amidah, and skip the rest? I know it's not officially sanctioned, but would it be acceptable?

    You're probably better off saying Havinenu.

    Oh, you mean just the ending of each bracha? It's pretty hard to decipher your question.

    Also, from the fact that the “Baruch Attah” in Shemone Esrei is called a “Chatimah”, shows that by definition there must be something recited prior.
