The birth of the Pistol Offense at Nevada

Stashed in: Football

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

This is humble birthplace of the hottest offensive scheme in the NFL right now: the Pistol, famously run by the 49ers with Colin Kaepernick.

The Pistol seemingly came from out of nowhere.

Strangely enough, I first saw this formation not by Kaepernick but by RG3 on the Redskins.

RG3 has mastered the play and it is key to his success.
