    Re: how do we stop 49ers vaunted pistol offense?



    Gunna come down to the DL. They are CRUCIAL in stopping the pistol, which scares me

    Go look at how Seattle dominated them with Kaepernick, and how St. Louis beat them once and tied them once - both also with Kaepernick. Somehow those teams were able to do it, and in the two losses, SF was held to 13 points each time.

    Also the Saints in the first half had Kaepernick on the ropes.....he had that look that Flacco had his first few playoff games, deer in the headlights. For that matter look at what Atlanta did to him most of the game.........kept him in the pocket. If Turner hadn't got hurt we would be playing Atlanta anyway.

    Was just going to say the same thing. I'm thinking they play contain on the outsides and force Kap up the middle running or passing. Basically a gradual tightening of the pocket rather than an allout rush, if that makes any sense.

    I'm not. theres a reason it's still in college and not in the NFL.

    Remember the last time some team tried some cutesy little BS from College(Wildcat). yeah how'd that work for them? The only reason the Niners are here is because they started this towards the end of the season. We have enough gametape now. All the respect to Jim and all but Ryan and the Failclowns aren't Flacco and the Ravens.

    First, the "pistol" is a formation, not an overall offensive scheme.

    It's basically a shotgun formation but the QB is closer to the line. The RB is lined up directly behind the QB typically, although you will sometimes see the RB to the side.

    The weakness of the pistol comes in two areas. The line cannot pull to either side because the QB is closer to the line than in a traditional shotgun. Second, the RB is a slight disadvantage since now he has to run around the QB than on to the line. So the key on running plays is to stay to your assignment and make CK hand the ball off.

    The weakness in the passing game is simple. Rush up the middle and the outside LB's simply play containment on the edges.

    This isn't a new formation and I am willing to bet Harbs knows all about it.

    I am definitely nervous about the read-option though. It takes discipline and quick thinking and reactions to defend.
    We have two weeks to work on it, and Tyrod to practice against........either way, we aren't going to shut them down totally, or need to, because i think we can score on them.

    Matt Ryan threw for almost 400 yards against them.

    Yes, but he's Matty Ice, the bestest quarterback from the 2008 draft, especially in the post season. The guy is elite.

    Yeah you're right. I doubt Flacco can match the Elite Matty Ice. lol

    Yeah, Julio Jones was wearing them out, and the Niners had almost no pass rush. I kept watching that Niner DL, especially Soapoanga get no push at all......Ryan had all day until the very end really. They almost ever ran any kind of scheme at all. It look like Grandpa Matti at his worst. I really think we can work Soapoang over.
