    Chris Ault Says Eli Manning Could Run The Pistol Offense

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2013/1/22...rt-griffin-iii

    Excerpt: "Chris Ault, architect of the pistol offense employed by the San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks and others, says a team without a running quarterback can still use many of the concepts.

    Could the New York Giants run some of the newly-popular -- and wildly successful -- pistol offense, even with the slow-footed Eli Manning at quarterback? Chris Ault, architect of the pistol, told NFL.com on Tuesday that teams with non-running quarterbacks -- like the Giants -- can certainly implement parts of the pistol running attack.

    "They could run the pistol formation," Ault said Tuesday on 'NFL AM.' "They don't need to run the read part of it. When we first put the pistol in, in 2005 and 2006 (at Nevada), that's all we ran. We ran the power, the gaps, the counters, the zones, the outside stuff. We did not run the read at that time. So, the pistol offense, the most important thing there, is you can run any offense you've been running. And this is how we created it, and then we advanced the pistol run game -- the read part of it -- two years later." Read more...

    Defenses would be scared of our offense if Eli used the pistol.

    You don't need to run the read option out of the pistol. It seems like it'd actually lend itself to our Power O running schemes.

    If he did say no, it was because Eli is hardly a threat to run. The Defense needs to figure out the pistol and stop it cold. Offense needs to stay healthy and do the gameplan that got two SBs.

    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.

    If you don't need a mobile QB, as the article suggests, is it just a coincidence the teams mentioned in the article all have one?
