San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had a great deal of success in his first year as a starter. He led the 49ers to within a whisker of the Super Bowl title. NFL teams are still trying to figure out a way to contain Kaepernick after he excelled in the 49ers version of the Pistol offense.
The Pistol is generally was the formation Kaepernick played in while starring at Nevada. Former coach Chris Ault is thought of as the inventor of the Pistol. Former Ault and current Washington State assistant, Jim Mastro, is the godfather.
With the knowledge Mastro possesses, NFL teams have come calling. Mostly to get some insight and some knowledge on how to stop it.
Mastro has declined NFL offers due to his loyalty to Kaepernick. Mastro told CBSSports.com's Bruce Feldman, as long as Kaepernick is in the NFL he won't help teams with ways to defend the Pistol.
"As long as Colin [Kaepernick] is in the NFL, I'm not going to do that," Mastro told CBSSports.com Monday. "He is like a son to me.
"There are plenty of people they [NFL teams] can get ahold of that can help them."
I'm wondering if the Green bay Packers were one of those teams. Kaepernick single handedly destroyed the Packers, running for 181 yards in the process.

2012 Season Review:
The 49ers were 6 – 2 when their season hit a remarkable crossroads. They finished an unusual tie game at home against St. Louis that lead to their starting quarterback being removed from the game due to a concussion. The head coach turned to the back up and a legend was born. Due to the concussion the 49ers turned the reigns over to Colin Kaepernick on Monday...
The Steelers still think the 35-year-old veteran receiver Plaxico Burress has something to give to the team. They signed a one year deal with Burress as they watched Mike Wallace sign with the Miami Dolphins. As age creeps up on the Steelers I wonder why they don’t go out and sign Randy Moss. Moss is a better receiver than Burress and he is coming off a super bowl year. Moss...
