Default The Screen

Is it me or does anybody else realize that the screen is not working for the steelers, especially on 3rd and long. They seem to keep going to this play and keep getting no yards, the defense sees it coming, I've noticed it and I'm just a fan, so I'm damn sure that the opponents have noticed it while watching film. PLEASE 'WIS' CHANGE UP THE PLAY CALLING.

We called a lot of screens last year. Usually a screen is called when the defense is crowding the line of scrimmage. It won't work if the DB's, DE's, and LB's see it coming. They're just too fast.

that's very true... there were a few times in this game where I',m thinking: "OK, this is a good situation to throw deep. Recievers open, time in pocket. Good." Then we toss one short to Verron Haynes.

I actually (sorta) referred to this earlier. Ben is looking pretty good on the short ball now. But for some reason, he is not hitting the long ball receiver. I wonder if he still isn't quite healthy... If the face hits the windshield, the shoulder/arm isn't that far to follow. But who knows? It may also be that the timing is still off with his receivers, expecting them to break when they don't or not break when they do... though the receivers seemed to be running MUCH better routes this game. maybe it is still just confidence... I hate to say this, but give it a couple more weeks. Hopefully our "D" and Willie can save us until this takes care of itself.

I get the feeling the Ben is trying to be like Manning and have that one quick strike. It's not who we are as a team. Someone isn't reminding him of that and they're letting him go off and do his own thing (almost the same as the year Kordell - sorry for bringing him up - stated he was going to be a QB and refused to run the ball when he should of but instead threw it).

Ben has to get back to the 8 yard slant WRs/TEs and let them get the YACs.

screens can work but they have to call them in better situations, 3rd down is not the the right place,. try opening up a game with it on first down, watch the eagles they run them great. i think it is a play that can help us we just need less predictable. maybe run it with santonio holmes and wille reid. the one witn hajeh davenport worked really well in the chargers game.

I agree with you steelfan...one guy in the Steeler bar where I was watching the game in the other night said they ought to take the screen out of the playbook altogether, but I don't agree...the play itself is not bad, but we just haven't used it effectively lately.
