No. Every opinion I see from "experts" says the read option is easily countered if D line and linebackers stay disciplined. I've heard over and over if they just stay in their lanes you beat the read option. This is backed up by the fact you see the biggest read option plays when the end or outside linebacker crashes in on the fake. See Keap's long TD run against the Packers for this.

I still don't know why everyone always says the new gimmick is the next big thing when it almost never is.

Except the part where you forget that every gimmick to come come out of college is eventually figured out by NFL teams. Remember when the wild cat was gonna change the face of the NFL? The read option is no different.


The pistol is not a gimmick, you raging noob.


The pistol is a formation. It's not the read option. You can still have your 2/3 WR 1/2 TE set in the pistol. No reason you can't run an offense out of that.

If they discipline in their lanes and dont make a move for the runner, they put themselves in bad positions to get occupied and dominated by a blocker. They wouldn't need to read option, they could just pound the ball on every play.

It essentially gives the offense 3 dimensions, instead of 2. Theres a much higher potential with this kind of offense. It just hasn't been done because its so hard to get the right personnel.

And San Fran runs the read option out of the pistol, my point still stands, it's not a gimmmick, you.raging.noob.

Can't stay disciplined when the offense has multiple facets. If you're like the Panthers and the read option is all you have, then you can counter it.

But there's no way to counter it when you have BEAST MODE taking it to the house as a threat, coupled with Russell Wilson's legs and 4.5 speed, not to mention Russell's cannon arm.

Triple threat means that somebody is going to mess up, and Russell Wilson will make them pay.

Russell Wilson does not have 4.4 speed....

Exactly. The only difference in Wilson and Kaepernick is that Wilson has more experience, and has developed into a better passer. Kaepernick has the same potential, just needs alil more time to develop. Its something that Carroll has done a great job facilitating. The seahawks clearly were the more polished team this year. But thats something I expect to even out with time for Kaepernick. The seattle-niner games will be epic as ****. But I think Seattle will pull it off, only because I would take Carroll over Harbaugh.

Wilson has 4.55 speed, which is fast enough to not get caught by linebackers and outrun defensive ends, enough to slide or get out of bounds safely.
