And the Redskins ran the same offense (with some variation) with Kirk Cousins, who is not as mobile as RG3. And in his FIRST NFL start, he destoryed a Browns defense in their own backyard....the same Browns defense that had us on the ropes all day.
They destroyed them because the Washington Redskins offense is comprised of more than just the pistol scheme. They're complementing it with the same offense Kyle Shanahan ran in Houston, along with those stretch plays Mike perfected with Denver. So they're definitely not a one-trick pony.
If we go into the game with the express intent of stopping the pistol offense, we're going to lose. Like Baltimore lost, like Philadelphia lost after watching tape and expressing confidence that they can manage against the pistol offense.
