Yes.  It's very easy to apply.  I ran it as 8 man football in Denver this summer.  The center/guard splits are the same with a single QB.  I used the slots in place of TE's with two SE's:



              O         O  0  O          O
                      O             O   
                             O

The QB I had couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.  We only completed one pass (for a TD) but the wide splits let us ran as well as the other teams.  The QB was sacked twice in three scrimmages/games.  The right slot was a talented back and the QB handed off to him on sweep left with LG pulling.  Sometimes we faked it and the right slot handed back to the left slot on reverse with QB lead blocking. 

The QB had a horrendous arm and could not even hit a simple slant but the offense still worked.  We also ran "Beast" from it and completed three passes to the center, two for TD's.
