View Full Version : MIA: The Traditional Screen Pass

Whatever happened to the screen pass? We do the wide receiver bubble screen 3 to 4 times a game for two to four yards but we seem to never, ever do a screen to the back anymore.

Not too long ago, the Steelers used to be one of the better teams in the league at executing the screen.

I just don't understand it.

Even a TE screen would suffice.

You got a guy like Mendy with good moves and quickness - just get it out to him. Heck even use Mewelde.

Here's an idea for Arians, take out all the reverses and double reverses that result in a reset to the line of scrimmage and put in a screen.

The execution of the reverse is just terrible. It doesn't look good and the timing is all wrong.

Dear Steelers I am begging you to bring back the screen play. Please? I'm sure it would have come in use when you were given the ball on the opponent's 30 yard line.
