    Are we still running the Pistol?

    I know nothing about X's and O's, but I felt like all I heard about in August was how the pistol was going to revolutionize the offense compared to last year. I still don't really know what it is, but are we still running it? If we are, why isn't it working?

    I don't think there's a suitable name for what we run...


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Every year, we're revolutionizing the offense.
    It just comes out more like the French Revolution every time.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I was listening to the director's comments of Les Miserables. He said that a lot of the revolutions were basically a group provoking riots and hoping that the others around them would join in. I sometimes feel that way about our fb team. Some of the players do their thing hoping the others will join in.

    They seem to line up in the pistol at shotgun depth then motion the rb into a standard shotgun. That way defenses are like OMG is that the pistol, nevermind they looked to the sideline and called a wr screen.
