That and some zone read option. Definitely sounds like they are working in things that he did well in college.

Thanks. I wasn't sure if I missed something from years past.

Thank you Matty.
I don't read the local media very often; consequently I forget that there are some guys like Kiem that do a good job.

Don't watch that many Steelers games but in the few I saw don't recall any seeing the Pistol formation.
When KC ran it with Thigpen the Pistol was the bulk of there offense.

Another hint about the offense from Kiem:

8. By the way, Griffin ran a zone read on one play, though he handed the ball off to running back Roy Helu. Griffin did have one run up the middle.

You can actually see them in Pistol (offset-I) a few times in this clip^^^

No threat from Ben to run of course with the bad foot, but they ran the pistol here

+1 MK, that vid jogged my memory neither here nor there the Steelers ran option in the SB on a 2 PT conversion.
If I can find it on youtube I'll post it.

I'll also search for the Tyler Thigpen/Chan Gailey KC Pistol offense.

Re: A New Look Offense or the Same but Better?

Thanks for the article from NFL.com. Good read, starting to curb my expectations for this year when I hear that RG had been forcing balls into small windows. But this is the time of year for him to make some mistakes. Can't wait to see them in action in a week.

Re: A New Look Offense or the Same but Better?

RG3 is not going to start off looking like Dano Marino or Jim Plunkett. He's getting used to those fast NFL defenses. Mike Shanahan has predicted from day one that Griffin was going to undergo some growing pains.

The Redskins can run the option with various fakes and misdirection involved, and they’ll take advantage of Griffin’s arm, as well.

During team drills inside the 20 on Saturday, Griffin took the snap, raced to the edge and got around the corner of the defense for a touchdown. Griffin’s quick feet enabled him to navigate the sideline and stay in bounds. Defenses must respect his ability to run and throw, which should enable the Redskins to take advantage of certain looks. Later during red zone work, Griffin hit WR Santana Moss over the middle from the left slot for a touchdown

Re: A New Look Offense or the Same but Better?

I dunno where that guy gets predicting a 3-13 season for the B&G. If we can do what we did with Grossman and Beck at QB, the Oline injuries and our horrible WR corps, not to mentiion our best two offensive players out the last 4 games of the year.............I dunno, that guy seems like an uninformed peckerhead.

I believe RG3 will have the best season of all the NFC East qbs. I dunno why, but I really think that he will have a better season than even that of Newton last year. With the two tight end sets we can run, the bootlegs and our athletic tight ends, as well as our upgraded receivers and our pass catching RB stud helu, we are going to be right there contending for the crown. Our defense, however, might go down a bit in the rankings, or the secondary could pull together and create a little mini miracle and surprise everyone. Ill say instead of 13th overall for that unit, lets say 12th overall, just because of the RG3 effect, without the Rex Grossman fumbles and picks, they wont be on the field half as much as they were last year........

Re: A New Look Offense or the Same but Better?

I could see our defense going down IF we suddenly have a lot of leads and teams are throwing to catch up. Since rankings are based on yards, I HOPE that's the scenario. What would you consider "best" for RGIII? Most yards? Most TDs? Most wins? For me, it's all about QB rating. If that's up there, the rest will take care of itself.
