Essentially with more Geno Smith's, Logan Thomas' and Johnny Football's coming through the college ranks, you will see more and more pistol formations being used. The skillset of these QBs is lending itself to greater innovation.
I am actually very excited to see what the future holds with the talented QBs coming through the college ranks. This is probably the biggest change since Landry started using the shotgun in the 70s
Often what you see is coaches putting their own version using certain aspects of an offensive system. No one is running the pure Pistol offense just as no one runs the pure west coast offense.
