    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.

    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.

    Re: Are we still running the Pistol?

    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.
