Pistol Offense

In order to employ the "pistol" formation in the NFL, it is widely thought that a mobile QB is needed to run it effectively. Our man Jimmy Kempski reports that is a misconception. Anyone can run it:

Former Nevada head coach Chris Ault, who coached Colin Kaepernick in college, thinks Eli Manning can run the pistol.

Popular thinking suggests you need a highly mobile signal-caller to make the pistol work, but Ault shot that down, suggesting that more plodding passers like Eli Manning could find success leaning on those concepts.
