Sure - and, once Harbaugh saw how effective it was, he substituted CK for A. Smith. I don't think that happens if the pistol were getting blown up week in and week out.

Skins imitated the college game and effectively brought it to the pro level. It's making that leap that was KS & MS's innovation. We have seen first hand that an effective college scheme (i.e. the "Fun'n Gun") doesn't necessarily translate to the pros.

Re: Around the league divisional weekend

I was thrilled to see the Seahawks lose -- trash-talking, classless jerks that they are. And I cannot decide whether losing in the heartbreaking fashion that they did or getting entirely stomped would have been better, but regardless, I was pleased the Falcons didn't choke. The Seahawks have been a complte thorn in our side for ages now. It doesn't bother me as much when a really good team plays well and beats us but seems to respect us as an adversary. But the cheap stuff that occurred throughout the wild card game, coupled with the trash talking beforehand really irked me. I am hoping that they have a massive sophmore slump with Wilson under center next year and start in-fighting. (Unfortunately, that probably won't happen -- to the contrary, they looks scary good right now.)

Also, Im an NC state fan and have always liked Wilson. I love watching games where the seahawks play at home. The atmosphere always makes the games exciting and compelling. The seahawks are not my 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th favorite NFL team, but i like them a heck of alot better than the falcons. Sports arent particularly interesting to watch unless I have some kind of rooting interest in a team, so that makes the upcoming games horribly uninteresting to me.
That's fine when the team that beats you was clearly the better team, however the Seahawks were just the healthier team.

I could just picture Robert slicing through Green Bay's defense the same way Colin kaepernick did on Saturday night.
I am convinced that if RG3 had been healthy going into the playoffs the Skins would have gone to the Super Bowl.

I think people were not expecting QBs that can run and pass like RG3.

That Falcons game was a real sham. I actually felt bad for the Seahawks and I hate the Seahawks. Felt like I just watched a horrible 4 hour movie, I feel stupid.

Domes should be banned. I hate dome ball.

I disagree. SF is the best team in the NFC and maybe in the NFL.

Re: Around the league divisional weekend

We would have beat Seattle with a healthy RG3, in all likelihood. Let's just start there.

Well that's debatable but it sure looked that way at 14-0. But SF and Seattle are two teams in the NFC that are young, and have the same type of QB that we do, and they paid a lot less to get them. The NFC is loaded for years to come.

Definitely. I mean, a healthy RG would have continued the onslaught beyond the 1st quarter.

Exactly the point. If Harbaugh wanted to go full out with it, he would have moved to it from preseason. But he didn't. Then the Skins started showing success, and when Smith had the concusssion Harbaugh took the opportunity to implement it.

Do you think Smith would be able to pull it off? Harbaugh knew what he had in Kaepernick, i saw it run during their pre-season games with Kaep (vanilla version). So did Bill Walsh invent the WCO? No, Paul Brown did. Same shit, who cares.
