a good offer and expects plea he gives a short continuance like 1 week?
i was offered a plea from felony to misdemeanor and the continuance was only 1 week to think about it and another time i had a misdemeanor charge that district attorney refused to reduce and continued case a month for trial.
Impossible for us to know why a DA selects a certain amount of time to continue a matter as opposed to another. Generally, your attorney and the DA agree upon a date for your next court date.
What difference does it make? If the DA is offering a good deal, s/he wants a prompt decision.

It's simple. No one wants to do more work than they have to. When a case is expected to go to trial, the continuances are long in order to give more time to prepare for trial. If the case is not expected to go to trial, (like because of a sweet deal) the continuances are short, to put pressure on everyone to work it out.
Is this all you've taken away from your 2 experiences in court? How about not getting charged!
Who knows? Different cases and different DAs. Just evaluate whether you are getting a good deal on this one. The DA makes offers like that so they don't have to prepare for trial. Once you make them work, someone (you) are going to pay!
