I posted this earlier but I think it's a great thought about the Pistol, for those that didn't see Trent Dilfer talk about this last night:
"It's called the Pistol, and you're going to have people tell you they've figured it out...take long enough the NFL will figure it out. There's no answer for the Pistol, it's simple math...right? It's addition, you have more numbers than the other team when you run the zone read, and it's Geometry, you have angles set up. Nobody has found an answer to the pistol yet and the Baltimore Ravens have to because the Niners score touchdowns off of it. It's not always Kaep running. Today 2 of the 3 touchdown runs were pistol runs. Big plays in the pass game come off of the pistol and if the Ravens can't figure out the pistol, it doesn't matter how physical they are...THEY WILL LOSE"
They don't have enough experience against it or the type of QB's that run it. It makes me very Excite
