Eventually that college style offense they play is going to catch up to them. I can't see them succeeding running a pistol offense to win more games.

All the pistol offense is is a formation, which doesn't mean that a certain of plays have to be run out of it. Just because the offense was generally popularized in college doesn't make it any less of an effective or noneffective formation.

You're kind of making his point. NFL defenders are too fast to allow this type of formation to work against them in the long run. They'll adjust like they always do and find a way to neutralize this college style offense.

Man... The AFC East is the armpit of the league this year. One team over .500 (and just barely so)?

That's ugly.

People have been saying that all season though and the timeline keeps getting pushed further and further back. Again, there's nothing about the formation that determines it's effectiveness or limits the types of plays a team can run out of it, but I suppose since it was popularized in college it's doomed to fail eventually, even though that's how things in pro football have developed for as long as any of us have been watching football.

Another thing I've noticed when people talk about the Redskins running the read option that seems to be overlooked is how often Griffin throws out of that play call. Most of the time when teams run (at least in the pros) it's strictly a run of some sort, but Griffin will only run out of it maybe two or three times a game (if that) and if he holds on to it, he's just using it as another variation of play action.

did you mean "NFC East" ? (all of which have beat your Browns)

that is what everyone said last year when our best team was the 9-7 Giants that barely snuck in the post season...the "NFC Least"



the worst division in the NFL is the AFC West...with a combined 18 wins

Did you seriously just try to get back at him by saying they've all beat the Browns?

C'mon son!

actually the Skins haven't played the Browns yet I guess...

I hope the Browns take that game, obviously...but they probably won't

Sucks, we have a season. But apparently we need to be up against the wall about to be killed before we wake up. SO maybe its ok. I still rather be a Falcons fan wondering if we clinch the first seed this week or next.
