Mangini and and Mike from Mike and Mike provided an interesting way to stop it. You know how a few times the DE was standing there staring at Kaep after the handoff? Well, Mangini said you don't have the DE make a read. You have him go full speed at the QB and hit him as hard as you can and completely ignore the hand-off to the RB.
You do that a few times and that QB's head coach will call it less in order to not put his QB in a position to get injured.
Mangini is right, that is a free hit on the QB and it would be legal considering the threat of the QB running.
That assuming the DE can Tackle Kap in the open field. If he comes straight at kap, don't you think Kap could escape around him.
Maybe willis or bowman could get him, not many other DE/LBs
just look at how teams like boise etc played against nevada. the DE played the mesh point of the ball not the players and disrupted the offensive flow. also if you have the de stay at home and not crash the rb, a lb takes away the RB at the gap. if you do that though, that takes 2 players off the defense away from playing the pass which makes the pistol read option play action deadly.
