Default Re: Do the Steelers throw to many screens?

The screen pass is, in many ways, just a glorified rushing play. You move the running back out into space and hope you trap some of the defenders around the los. The Steelers also run a lot of screens to the WR which is also the same principle. One of the guys I was watching the game with commented that he hates when we run the bubble screen to Ward. But the thing is, these plays are almost always successful, sometimes remarkably successful.
