Apparently, at this point, the shotgun is an "everyone except for Jon Gruden" thing.  ;)

Holmgren came out and gave Hasselbeck the ok to use the shotgun if he feels more comfortable in that situation.  No biggie, right?

The thing is...this leaves Jon Gruden as the only coach in the NFL who does employ the shotgun.

rocko23:
he needs to use it this week to help deal with the sheagles blitz

i think dunno why there is such a desire from fans to see us use a shotgun, it restricts the use of run plays. rollouts bootlegs, and playactions. It sets the D a target of where the QB is gonna be and there is a greater chance of fumbles. Plus its harder to block D becasue of the angle you create
