    When I see RG III run those options with three or four players involved I just can't see the Giants pulling that off, as an example. I'm all for whatever works, but sometimes you just don't have the personnel to make some plays work.
    We wouldn't be running the read option aspects of the formation.

    Think if it this way, it's like a shotgun formation where nearly the entire running playbook is still available.

      Haha.

        the reason why its so effective for mobile qbs in the same reason it can be effective for immobile qbs...it opens up a lot more space, more plays can be run from it as u allude to...its a better starting point for mobile QBs...honestly, I think we will see a lot more teams use pistol shotgun formations, even immobile qb teams...i know quite a bit use it already but bc the option read isnt being done its not as noticed...

          i think most of us would have said bradshaw would handle this situation better than BJ, but now that the time is actually upon us, i dunno i feel differently about it. i dont think bradshaw would be vocal and throw tantrum(s) (he might be good for 1 lol), but i dunno. just the way he looked so dejected on the sidelines...im kinda surprised it wasnt talked about as much...u could clearly see bradshaw was no where near as i dunno the word hyped up? he looked somber on the sidelines he really did...no not all the time, but there were several instances i noticed he just looked, well, sad...

            When we lose a job, we go out and find another one (very over simplified, I know). When many professional athletes "lose their job" they have nowhere to go in terms type of employment or salary. It's got to be a very difficult adjustment to come to terms with. You'd think these guys would have "stored nuts away for the winter" when the big bucks were coming in, but all too often that's not the case.

              Seriously. I know I probably wouldn't have made many wise decisions if I found myself a millionaire at 21.

                You don't need to have running QB to run the Pistol. The formation essentially moves the mesh point between the RB and QB deeper in the backfield opening up more cutback lanes for the RB.
                It would benefit both Wilson and Eli, likewise he would have more options to audible based on coverage, versus that of a shotgun formation into a draw, with the pistol you can audible to both sides into multiple run formats from inside tackles to outside tackles, sweeps, tosses etc

                i would like to see that happen next year,

                  very true. but wouldnt u agree that in bradshaws case its something different than that? i think that his drive, his pride, is so strong that to kinda be told, we can do it better a different way, it like kills him. remember how he and TC had that little back n forth on the sidelines as he was going onto the field? his belief, self conviction is so strong that I think he even realizes what we have with Wilson (and his own condition with feet/knees...were bradshaw healthy, who knows. but he isnt) and i dunno.

                  with BJ, he threw the tantrums, but i at least still felt he was gonna go out there and be his usual self. i dunno if i can say that with bradshaw. a huge part of his game is playing with that passion and self conviction/belief (its how he can carry 350 lb DT's 6 yds in SB's), if that passion and emotion arent there and even worse, if its negative, then i dont know how he'd be the same effective bradshaw despite my hope thats what we get.

                      It's easier to see in Brdshaws case. He just wants to play, money is secondary

                            Their agents and whatnot aren't around them 24/7, and the pressure from family members must be tremendous. It has to be hard to tell your mom no, I'm not buying you a house or a new car. Take a look at Tyron Smith and what he's had to go through with his brothers.

                            I blame a culture that values flash and bling.

                              I think I may have been the only one that got that.
