    the old single wing offense of the 1930s and 40s used the shotgun (though it wasn't called "the shotgun"). then Tom Landry's Dallas Cowboys brought it back into style in the 70s. don't know if they were the first to bring it back, but they were definitely the most notable.

    It was the Mafia, but I forgot which of the five families it was. They all had the same uniforms.

    your right in the sence of the AFL, the shotgun wasnt used for like 35 years and then Joe Namath did it with the jets... but its not the jets who first started it.
