I explain some of the read-option/pistol stuff in the blog:
Originally on 7/29 Kubiak said that they were going to run some read-option as a look but is not their strength. Pistol not mentioned.
Then a couple days later, they ran some pistol. Nobody asked him about it after the practice. Somebody told LZ Kubiak had already said pistol just a look.
But because I knew coach wasn't asked specifically about pistol, I asked him about it the next day, and he said it was something they were looking at.
