The fact that Gore has admitted that he is still adjusting to the new offense this late in the season makes me realize that Harbaugh is not as good as most think. I may have to start using the Harbozo moniker that wysiwyg created.
Washington's using the pistol offense more than anyone else and they have one of the most efficient offenses in the football. The difference(beyond RG3).....the people calling the plays in Washington know what the hell they are doing. They've blended the pistol with the WCO and zone-blocking schemes to create something truly impressive. As far as I'm concerned, Roman is throwing spaghetti at the wall with his eyes closed and hoping something sticks. He might have some good ideas offensively, but he is not a good playcaller.
Basically, to use a analogy, he understands the history of chess and all the different types of opening and finishing moves that can be utilized, however when he sits down at the table to play, he inevitably gets wiped out by anyone who is equal to him in terms of experience/knowledge because he doesn't know how to apply all that knowledge in the appropriate and advantageous manner.
