Watch the 9ers carefully as I think this will be an important tweak to make to the zone option plays we run next year. It gives the runner the ability to run downhill rather than starting from a standing position.
Also an interesting twist is how San Fran will sometimes send a lead blocker at the outside defender and have the QB run it regardless. We did some variations on that, but the 9ers run it to perfection.

Who said it wouldn't work? Seemed genius to me two or three years ago.

The way Frisco and especially Wash runs the pistol and misdirection, there's just so much deception involved.
Of course, you need a great running attack and/or Off line as well. But if the Panthers do it. Do it well, or don't do it at all.

Does anyone know if Shula has experience running the Pistol?
