49Ers Hid Played And Didn't Show They Hand Before Playoff

Recommended Posts

49ers OC Greg Roman revealed after Saturday night's Divisional Round win that the Niners intentionally did not use the Pistol formation in Week 17 and barely used it in Week 16 to throw opponents off.

The Niners wanted opponents to think they'd scrapped the Pistol. They proceeded to use it on nearly 50 percent of their Divisional Round plays. "We didn't use it against the Cardinals because we wanted people to think we weren't going to use it," Roman said. Observed Packers GM Ted Thompson of Colin Kaepernick's performance, "That was unbelievable. He did everything. I mean, I had read the press clippings and seen some of the highlights. But to watch what he did ... oh my, that was special."

Let's hope we did something too.

Well I guess the board experts can finally accept that teams do in fact hold back plays. It's not rocket science or beyond the realm of possibility. Now we have proof. Glad to see they pulled out the stops before us. Now Nolan gets some time to gameplan it.
