Default Shotgun formation inventor dies.....

The Associated Press reports the NFL coach who invented the shotgun offensive formation with the San Francisco 49ers, Howard "Red" Hickey, died Thursday, March 30, his son said. He was 89. He made history in 1960 when he combined elements of a punt formation, a spread passing attack and a double-wing formation invented by Stanford's Pop Warner into the shotgun, so named by Hickey because it sprayed receivers around the field.....RIP.....

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

In a related story, San Francisco native Harvey "Bung" Brown, 83, the inventor of the center crouch down, passed away at St.PeeWee Hospital from injuries sustained from a beating in a YMCA parking lot.
