Great traditional QBs do not show the exact coverage every play and yet defenses have not stopped those QBs offenses.

The NFL along with owners and coaches has spent years devising ways to protecting QBs on the field. QBs cost teams more money each year - The biggest problem for running QBs is they are a target - And one day they are not going to walk off the field.

It is only a matter of time before defensive coaches defeat the pistol offense / read-option schemes in the NFL. I believe it will be sooner than later. Most likely this year soon.


Just my opinion.
I probably won't go too indepth since frankly, we've already beaten this horse to death but the pistol is just a formation. An alignment offensively. To say coaches are going to defeat it is like saying " Coaches will figure out that bunch formation everyone and their mother uses on 3-6 or shorter".

It's an alignment and like all alignment, there are strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, there are endless amounts of variation with the formation and personnel which when coupled with the endless amount of route concepts/run philos, make for a nightmare.
