Re: The Future is Here: The NFL and the Pistol Offense
Crucial to the whole thing though, is griffins ability to sell the fake. He makes defense think he has the ball when a running back does and visa versa. IMO he does it better than anyone in the game. If defenses ever figured out how to see through griffins fakes, like poker players learn to tell when an opponent is bluffing, then the whole thing falls appart and you can discount everything I said. But everything happens so quickly, that it would only work if you had a qb spy type player on defense with high intelligence, exceptional athleticism, and the eyes of a hawk.... So I don't see it happening.
On a related note, I wonder if part of Russell's success can be attributed to his munchkin size... Can defenses even see what hes doing over 6'6 offensive lineman?
