However, the D will catch up with what we ran last year with Kaep. They get paid a lot of money to figure these things out. Doesn't mean he/we still can't be effective but I really do think its going to start to come at more of a cost. Only thing I have a problem with is that this type of O puts your qb in more situations to get hit. Kaep is fast and bigger than RG3 but do we really think he will continue to run free forever? I could be wrong but if I was a DC, I'd spy him with a SS or a quick LB and hit him every time we run the read option (if he keeps or hands off). This will take a toll and I don't want to see that happen. Only time will tell but his upside and longevity could be limited if he's getting hit constantly
This is more or less what I've been trying to say. I'm not completely crazy.
Go back and read the yahoo article i posted. The numbers are there.
The majority of plays with Kaep at QB were run out of traditional, power offense formations. You need to quit while you're behind, because it seems you don't actually watch the games and only get your info from the internet. The read-option wasn't run nearly as often as you're trying to make it seem, and the actual Pistol formation even less often. We ripped off huge plays out of the formation, so of course the media is going to act like it's all we do. Anybody who actually watched Kaep play knows this is a huge load of BS.
I already read the article, which was only talking about the playoffs. What about the regular season - you know, where Kaep took the majority of his snaps? You conveniently dismiss that and run to your one article which says we used the pistol a lot in some games where we moved the ball more and scored more points than before. Good argument, buddy.
You still don't understand what the pistol actually is.
