The deception that is behind the pistol can present a variety of problems for any defense. Rick Stewart methodically dissects the pistol offense into formations and backfield, pass plays and run plays showing you the keys to stopping one of the most difficult offenses. Coach Stewart's keys will help any defense contain the high-octane pistol offense.
Using diagrams and game footage, Coach Stewart outlines and then answers the 'what ifs' of the complete Pistol option package. Regardless whether it's Jet Read, Midline/Veer Option, Inside or Outside Zone (a total of six categories of run plays) or Play Action Pass, One Step Catch and Release, Boot off Inside Zone (a total of six categories of pass plays) Stewart peels away the layers and exposes us to the core and weakness of each play. One unique aspect of this video is that he provides you with how he breaks down different Pistol formations into Hudl.
The pistol is an offense that at any point can use the zone scheme, power scheme, veer option scheme, and spread passing game. Coach Stewart explains which alignments cause the greatest difficulties for the pistol. The zone plays can often look the same to a defense unless you know key nuances associated with each play. Stewart explains where to begin your defensive reads and the progression for each position.
The passing game is broken down using the various coverages detailed in Stewart's additional DVDs. The number of steps a quarterback takes in the pistol during three step and five step passing concepts changes. Teach your defense how they change and how they must adjust to stop the passing game from the pistol.
Coach Stewart is so thorough in his analysis of the Pistol Offense and how to defend it that this DVD could be used by DCs and OCs alike. Stewart gives you techniques and schemes that will be easily adapted to any defense based upon positional strategy. This DVD will give you the edge every coach is looking for this season.
